Buckaroos Sliding Saddles are unique insulation protection shields designed to compensate for up to 4” of linear expansion/contraction at support locations in a dynamic piping system. The design includes two saddles. The upper saddle is a heavy-gauge plain saddle that is adhered to the pipe insulation jacket with a peel-and-stick strip for easy installation. The lower saddle is 4″ shorter than the top. It is separated from the top layer by PTFE material that virtually eliminates the friction between the saddles and allows for linear movement.
