Chrome sleeving for radiator pipes

I've just had a bathroom refurb with new chrome towel warmers. I would like to cover the copper pipe section from the floor in some sort of chrome-effect clip on sleeving. Any ideas, please?

It's the smaller pipe, would it be 10mm?

Yes, the normal size is 15, but many radiators use small bore, 10mm.

As sold in Lidl for a 12mm gas pipe run
very effective.

small-bore piping is rarely used nowadays. I'm surprised your installer didn't use 15mm chrome pipe, it's readily available at any plumbers' merchant.

Otherwise, the chrome snap-ons in BT's link are excellent.

The chrome or radiator pipe covers can be obtained from most if not all the main diy outlets.

The chrome pipe is not all that much dearer than copper, so if you are a dab hand at diy, change the 'seen' pipes yourself (don't forget extra olives and inhibitor).

As FE Chrome pipe should have been fitted, its not a good idea to put another metal sleeve on a copper pipe it may corrode as above use the Chrome Tape. I Used to Fit Kitchens and Bathrooms for MFI years ago Sub Contracted
