I am trying to block holes where the pipework enters into the various bathroom units.

I intend to do this by making plywood covers with a hole drilled in the middle so the pipe can pass through.

Is there a standard size diameter generally used for such pipework so I can drill the hole in the plywood cover?

Thank You.

As noted above get some pipe covers, designed for this job. If you need to fix them in place use white silicone, it will hold them well but not damage any touching surfaces and has flexibility which you need especially on hot pipes.
