Factors when choosing pipe rail support

The choice for a certain type of pipe rail support depends on several factors:

The pipe rail system is not the same in every greenhouse. Therefore it is important that you measure the centre-to-centre distance, the size of the base plate, the tube size and the height well and accurately. This way you ensure that the pipe rail system is as solid and stable as possible.

Clamping straps

In older closed pipe rail systems, clamping straps are still used to attach the heating pipe to the pipe rail support. If this is the case with your pipe rail system, keep in mind that you need two clamping straps per pipe rail support. So:

Number of pipe rail supports x 2 = number of clamping straps needed
