Just a quick one. I have to fit 15mm copper pipe [H+C] into an internal plasterboard cavity wall which is just insulated with rockwool. Will be lucky if the length of copper pipes in the cavity be around 1 meter in length to the drop in the floor.

The question is do i have to put anything around the copper pipes to protect them in the cavity space?

1. In theory you are supposed to insulate the pipes. In practice I would expect the rockwool to do a good enough insulation job.
2. You don't need to protect the copper from rockwool.
3. The clipping distance for vertical 15 mm copper pipe is 1.8 metres, so you can probably get away without clips provided the pipes are well supported at each end.
