Using fixing bands for plumbing, heating and air-conditioning
Fixing bands are an ideal building supply for the job site or for home maintenance. For example they are a great solution for plumbing jobs and can be used to attach or hang pipes to walls, vents or ceilings.
Fixing bands are also commonly used for installation of heating and air conditioning, for attaching ducts and vents to ceilings.

The other uses of fixing bands outdoors include for clamping, bracing and restraining. This might be necessary for fences, posts and gates that need maintenance to keep them looking good and functioning properly. See all our galvanised steel fixing bands.
