IAPMO Report Benefits Uponor Commercial Plumbing

October 11, 2012

We recently received confirmation that IAPMO (the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials) has published an Evaluation Report (ER-0253) confirming Uponor PEX-a pipe and ProPEX®, compression and WIPEX fittings are in compliance with the Uniform family of codes and the International family of codes, as well as codes published by other entities, including Canada.

Uponor can now reference ER-0253 to ensure code officials quickly have the information required for their decision on approval. In addition, ER-0253 references a table showing PEX-a pipe with F1960 ProPEX fittings do not require upsizing and can use the same sizing data as copper, making our systems more efficient and competitive in the commercial plumbing market.
