Anvil International Launches Anvil Shields for Insulated Pipe Support

Exeter, NH, January 9, 2019 – Anvil International launches Anvil Shields for insulated pipe support for use in single hanger or trapeze hanger applications. Products include a “strut-shield” version for Anvil Strut™ trapeze applications and a “universal-design” for use in single (clevis) hanger, trapeze hanger, I-Beam, C-Channel or floor mount applications. Anvil Shields have been designed to accommodate pipe movement generated by thermal expansion while also cradling and protecting the pipe’s insulation.

Made of high-quality ultra-resistant polypropylene, Anvil Shields eliminate pipe insulation tears, refrigerant leaks in A/C and refrigeration systems, and are a safer alternative to traditional metal shields.  They can be used in indoor or outdoor including rooftop applications.

Designed for an easy tool-free installation, Anvil Shields are designed to be the fastest installation in the industry and can save you time and money on your next project.

Anvil Shields product samples will be on display at the Anvil International booth (C6625) at the upcoming AHR Expo.
