Plumberex Specialty Products, Inc., located in Southern California, is the pioneer company that first patented an accessibility safety cover solution for under-lavatory piping. Since 1986, we started manufacturing the original and still highly successful brand HANDY-SHIELD™, now known as the HANDY-SHIELD MAXX™. In 2002 the company became the first to offer both a “Soft” and “Molded” accessibility safety cover for under-lavatory piping solution with the addition of the PRO-EXTREME brand.

A “New Gold Standard” (ASTM C-1822) was announced in January 2016 by the American Society for Testing and Materials for accessibility safety under-lavatory piping insulation. The new standard ASTM C-1822, “Standard Specification for Insulating Covers on Accessible Lavatory Piping,” now addresses Material and Product Performances on: Fire & Smoke Ratings, Thermal Performance, Sanitation Performance, Maintenance Functionalities, Product Construction, and Quality Assurances.
