Title: VIBRATION ISOLATING INSERT FOR A PIPE CLIP
Abstract:
Vibration isolating insert (1) for a pipe clip, the vibration isolating insert (1) being adapted to be arranged on a substantially annular pipe clip body and ultimately - in use - to be positioned between the outer surface of a pipe and the pipe clip body, the vibration isolating insert (1) comprising an elongate strip, said strip having a pipe facing side, which in use faces the outer surface of the pipe, and opposite thereto a pipe clip facing side, which in use faces an inner side of the pipe clip body, the vibration isolating insert (1) furthermore comprising gripping formations (4) connected to the strip at lateral side portions thereof and extending towards the pipe clip facing side and in use grip over the respective lateral edges of the pipe clip body, the vibration isolating insert (1) comprising a framework (2) and a vibration isolating lining (3) made of a softer material different from the material of the framework (2), wherein the framework (2) is a profiled section element formed of a polymeric material, said framework (2) comprising a strip shaped web (21), that reinforces the elongate strip, and lateral reinforcing members connected to the web (21) on either lateral side of the web (21) and reinforcing the gripping formations (4), and in that the framework (2) furthermore comprises at least one living hinge (24) defining a pivot axis parallel to the longitudinal axis of the insert (1) and allowing at least one of the gripping formations (4) to swivel around said pivot axis to increase and decrease the distance between the gripping formations (4) during arrangement of the insert on a pipe clip body.
