During pipe transportation, it’s important that they are held in place. This is so they don’t bounce around the container they are shipped in.
This could cause scratches to the pipe and damage its structure. Make sure you’re using best practices when transporting pipes. If you’re receiving pipe, make sure the manufacturing company has good systems in place for protecting the pipe.
They are made from a polyethylene compound and are usually orange-colored, depending on where you get them. This is to help easily identify them from the pipes when cargo needs to be unloaded. You can buy them in a variety of sizes across the industry to ship different sizes of pipes.
