The Benefits of Plastic Pipestands Over Wood Skids

The Benefits of Plastic Pipestands Over Wood Skids

There are several benefits to using plastic pipestands, specifically the Tuffstand, instead of wood skids for supporting pipes and other equipment in industrial settings:

  • Durability: Plastic pipestands are more durable and longer-lasting than wood skids. They are resistant to moisture, rot, and decay, and can withstand heavy use and exposure to harsh conditions. This means they require less maintenance and replacement over time, resulting in lower costs in the long run.

  • Lightweight: Plastic pipestands are much lighter than wood skids, making them easier to handle and transport to the installation site. The TuffStand can be moved with one hand, in an instant, to keep the project moving. This can be especially beneficial for larger pipes or for installations in tight spaces.

  • Cost-effective: Plastic pipestands are less expensive over the life of the product/project compared to wood skids because they require less maintenance and repair over time.

  • Stackable: Our plastic pipestand were designed to easily stack, helping with quick and easy clean up and reducing space needed to store the items as you move to your next project.

It is important to note that the choice between plastic pipestands and wood skids will depend on the specific requirements of the installation and the environment in which it will be used. Please reach out to us to discuss your specific project needs or get a sample of the Tuffstand sent to you!
