Encasement: Arma metal pipe boxing – tough protection

  • 13 Jul 2021

Where external pipework needs concealing and protecting against the risk of accidental damage, vandalism or theft, Encasement’s Arma metal pipe boxing provides a tough and versatile solution that also improves aesthetics and adds a uniform finish to the project.

Already featuring in a range of social housing refurbishment applications to conceal and protect simple vertical and horizontal pipe runs, as well as more complex district heating and central boiler installations, Arma can help improve security on projects at risk from damage.

All Arma metal boxing is bespoke manufactured from strong, lightweight and corrosion resistant aluminium. This ensures it meets the dimensions and requirement of individual projects, which eases installation and improves the fit and finish.


Arma’s ‘U’ shaped channel profiles are available with either a flange or angle fixing method. This enables them to be readily secured to the external walls with suitable fixings, while lockable hinged inspection doors are incorporable to simplify routing maintenance on pipework.

To contrast or blend in with wall colours and surroundings, Arma are specifiable with a PPC finish in any RAL paint colour. Pre-formed internal and external corners, together with joint covers and end caps are also available as part of the range.

Encasement also offers a supply and install service on the Arma product range to help simplify installation process.

Key Features

 – Damage protection for external pipework and services
 – Strong & durable aluminium construction
 – Range of sizes and fitting options
 – PPC finishes in a wide range of RAL colours
