Full Encirclement Saddle

Full-Encirclement Reinforcing Saddles are used to provide reinforcement for branch outlets. Although Full-Encirclement Reinforcing Saddles are designed to fully encircle the run pipe, they are not designed to be pressure retaining. All full encirclement saddles come with a vent hole, and proper mill test documentation. We offer five types of encirclement saddles to suit your customer needs. May be offered with side bars or beveled sides.
