Why Your Store Should Stock Fiberglass Pipe Insulation

If you are a plumbing supply house or similar resale store, we highly recommend adding Fiberglass Pipe Insulation to your product offering.

You will be surprised to discover how many of your current customers are purchasing pipe insulation elsewhere and installing it on their jobs.  If a customers does not purchase pipe insulation they may see that you now offer it and reconsider.

Who Uses Pipe Insulation?

Almost  any contractor that installs, repairs, or works around piping are potential users of fiberglass pipe insulation.  Below is a short list of some of the biggest users of pipe insulation:

Mechanical Contractors
Asbestos Removal Companies
Boiler Installers / Repairmen
Firestop Specialists

What Sizes Should I Stock?

The pipe sizes and insulation thicknesses to stock vary depending on what type of customers you sell to.  Plumbers will use 1/2" wall thickness and smaller pipe sizes.  Mechanical contractors on the other hand will more likely require larger pipe sizes and thicker insulation as well.  One of the benefits of purchasing from Wisco is that you can see all of our pricing online and know that you can order and receive your material within a few days. Ordering from Wisco will allow you to reduce your stock levels and increase your product offering.
