Pipe Shields solve the problem of needing spot heat protection for exhaust pipes and components.
DEI now offers a better form of protection from searing exhaust heat. Thinking beyond the traditional stainless steel or carbon fiber heat shields, DEI developed a flexible heat shield solution that outperforms other shields available today. This enhanced performance starts by joining two durable materials together forming a dual-layer design. The outer layer is made from heat- treated glass fiber that is bonded with molten aluminum made into a tight weave for durability and strength. The inside material is made of a special high temperature resistant fabric (89% silica) designed to withstand some serious exhaust heat. The outer edge is finished off with a surge stitch for durability. It's mounted with stainless steel hardware. The result is a product with unmatched thermal performance and good up to 1350°F, finished off with a pleasing rich black finish. This proprietary textile technology combined with DEI's unique shield standoff bracket design provides an air gap between the shield and pipe that together provides the maximum potential for cooling and heat dissipation. In addition to external applications protecting legs and boots, Flexible Pipe Shields can also be used as a barrier between the exhaust and plastic bodywork, suspension components, or electrical harnesses. They will fit many applications and because the shield remains flexible, it can be installed onto just about any pipe shape.
