BuddyBats are pipe anchors. Their function is to reduce water hammer caused by vibrations in pipes. Buddy Bats are available in 5 different colours: Black, Brown, White, Red & Blue. They can assist with pipe identification – Red for hot water pipes and Blue for cold water pipes. White BuddyBats can be painted if used on external walls. Brown is traditionally used for copper or brown polycop pipes. Brown & Black are the most UV stabilised of all the colours and can be used for external pipe-work, although it is recommended that Nylon BuddyBats are rather used for this application.
The PS Bag is a reinforced, geosynthetic bag, consisting of a mechanically bonded woven/nonwoven composite fabric, with a dimensioned geotextile drainage base. These bags are filled with wet tailings material, sand or soil, and are mainly used as support plinths below concrete, HDPE or steel pipes.
