TB Concept Inc. has been developing easy-to-install pipe saddles and shields for almost two decades. The company was the first to recognise requirements for tool-free pipe support solutions securing piping systems while at the same time eliminating the typical thermal bridge and protecting the pipe and its insulation from damage.

Today, the company offers a complete suite of innovative pipe support solutions, including the leading Insuguard® brand. Insuguard’s revolutionary design allows for pipe movement within the support system, thereby minimising maintenance or repairs and considerably reducing energy loss.
