Snap 'N Shield pipe supports
When it comes to a fast, easy way to protect pipe insulation, Eaton’s enhanced Snap ‘N Shield pipe support is designed to install up to 60% faster than traditional metal shields.

Snap 'N Shield pipe supports

While cut pieces of PVC or metal shields tend to move or even fall out over time, the Snap ‘N Shield support attaches directly to support and helps eliminate the movement of the shield.   

The curved lipped edge along with its textured interior surface allows free movement of the pipe and insulation within the shield.  This goes a long way in helping prevent insulation from tearing, and possibly causing damage.



  • One-piece, tool-less design that snaps onto strut channel or pipe hangers
  • Contact area of strut increased by more than 15% on most common sizes, creating a more secure fit
  • Approximately 15% more insulation contact area to more evenly distribute load
  • Structural ribs improve crush rating by more than 25% at strut attachment
  • MSS standards require 12" of surface contact for pipe sizes up to 4". All sizes of Snap ‘N Shield have 12" of surface contact
