Gas pipe sleeving question


Postby beamer » Tue Nov 25, 2008 5:25 pm

Since I did not receive a reply within another thread. I have started one specific to my question.

Can any qualified corgi technician advise me if a gas pipe needs to be sleeved when passed through an internal breeze block wall?

If the answer is YES, can you please advise what is achieved by sleeving the pipe internally?

The reason I ask is that I have two corgi technicians advising with different answers!

Is there an online corgi set of regulations I can refer to?

Thanks for any advice.

Hi Beamer,

Yes, it has to be sleeved and sealed at one end (internally)this is to prevent any gas filling a brickwork cavity with gas in the event of a gas escape on THAT pipe.So if it leaks it cannot get into your property but vents to outside.

Steve: Sorry I did not provide enough information. The pipework is internal, running from the kitchen to the utility through a breeze block wall.

Does it still need to be sleeved?

As well as that it also provides a buffer zone around the pipe should there be any movement in the wall that may cause the gas pipe to break.

That seems reason enough. Thank you for the insight.
