The Problem

Service holes in precast concrete or in-situ concrete floors need to be formed oversized to ensure adequate clearance for pipes / cables that need to be installed at a later date. After the service pipes have been installed, the Principle Contractor is left with the task of providing shuttering to the formed hole, to enable concrete infill.

At present, the common practice is to fix timber boarding flush with the surface of the floor. This process involves cutting a board to size, cutting a circle(s) to fit around the pipes(s), drilling holes and fixing with screws.

Shuttering around a soil pipe is a difficult and time consuming process, often requiring the need to work off a ladder. This process is slow and expensive compared to the new Instant Pipe Shutter.


Our Solution

The Beresford's Flooring Ltd Instant Pipe Shutter is an easy, quick, safe and re-usable alternative to traditional shuttering methods. It is a thin but strong plastic two piece former that fits snugly around the soil pipe and clips into place to provide a shutter to the complete circumference of the pipe. It is secured with a single pin. Cable ties are then inserted through the Instant Pipe Shutter and tied off to short lengths of rebar above.

There is no need for any power tools or screw fixings. The whole process can be achieved from floor level, as the pipe can be shuttered before final pipe placement. Alternatively, the Instant Pipe Shutter can be fixed in-situ if the soil pipe is already in place.
