Oil & Gas Pipeline Protection

Strong, durable, and flexible netting to withstand tough installation conditions

Conwed manufactures PipeSaver™ Rockshield, an extensive product line designed to protect oil & gas pipelines. PipeSaver™ Rockshield helps maintain cathodic flow in natural gas and oil pipelines. Our durable plastic mesh is wrapped around the pipe to protect against debris and rock damage during backfilling and against problems caused by certain soil conditions after pipe installation.

PipeSaver™ provides exceptional protection to help minimize rock chips that can eventually cause corrosion. Several grades and thicknesses of PipeSaver™ products are stocked and available to meet a wide range of specifications. PipeSaver™ is available in convenient 5' x 100' and 6' x 100' rolls. For detailed product information and minimum order quantities, please contact our team.
