Talon Manufacturing agrees licensing deal with PipeSnug 

Talon, a manufacturer of pipe clips, collars and covers in the UK, has agreed an exclusive worldwide licensing deal with PipeSnug, the all-in-one solution to meet Part L of the Building Regulations’ requirement to seal around pipework inside and out, without the need for sealant, perishable mortar or air sealing tape.  

Since its launch in 2017 by builder Chris Burdett and Alex Lever, PipeSnug and then FlueSnug have been used by countless of plumbers and builders, national housebuilders and Local Authorities. 

“We are delighted to announce our partnership with PipeSnug,” said Dean Heathfield, Talon’s Commercial Director. “The addition of these innovative pipe sealing products into the Talon family really does make perfect sense. We are really excited to have PipeSnug on board. Talon will help accelerate the “‘Snug” family of products’ growth through increased distribution, next day delivery, more product development and even more marketing support.  

“We have watched the PipeSnug phenomenon grow over the years and we have been really impressed by the benefits the products bring to heating and plumbing installers, as well as to housebuilders and local authorities when it comes to complying with Part L of the Building Regulations,” continued Dean.  

“Talon’s product range is much more than just pipe clips. This is a significant step for us as we widen our product range even further. We are proud to say ‘PipeSnug by Talon’.” 

For PipeSnug’s founders Chris Burdett and Alex Lever, the deal with Talon ends one chapter of their story but opens another. Both of them will be engaged by Talon to advise and consult on expanding the range as well as new product development. 

“The move to Talon is absolutely the right one for PipeSnug,” said Alex Lever, PipeSnug’s co-founder. “We shall join Dean and his team in pushing PipeSnug forward and under Talon’s wings we shall look to bring more ideas to market that save time and money for the trade. The partnership also allows us to further explore opportunities for the product outside of the UK too.” 

“From those first ideas and meetings with Alex in the pub back in the early days, via Dragons’ Den to this partnership with Talon, our journey with PipeSnug has been amazing,” said Chris Burdett. “I can’t wait to see PipeSnug soar to even greater heights in its new home.”
