Uponor Introduces Two New EP Multiport Tees for Commercial PEX Plumbing Applications
April 8, 2014
Uponor North America recently launched two new engineered polymer (EP) multiport tees to meet the increasing demand in commercial plumbing systems using crosslinked polyethylene (PEX) pipe. The new high-flow branch and flow-through EP multiport tees are targeted for commercial installations where supply lines are required to be upsized due to pressure or code requirements. One multiport does the same job as three separate tees, reducing the amount of connections by 45%. Both the branch and flow-through multiports feature 1¼" inlets with three ¾" outlets. “We are continuing to see exponential growth in our commercial plumbing business and are responding to market needs with products that make it viable to install Uponor PEX in any application,” says Jayson Drake, director, Plumbing and Fire Safety, at Uponor.
