BuilderOnline Features Uponor AquaSAFE™ as One of 13 Notable Products at the 2010 International Builders’ Show

January 22, 2010

On opening day of the 2010 International Builders’ Show, Hanley Wood product editors scoured the tradeshow floor for the latest and most interesting products, and found 13 notables worthy of mention. Featured on BuilderOnline, Uponor’s AquaSAFE™ multipurpose residential plumbing and fire sprinkler system was one of the 13.

Here is what BuilderOnline had to say:

Unlike competitive stand-alone sprinkler systems, the AquaSAFE Looped Residential Fire Safety System integrates into a home’s cold water plumbing. This means that water circulates each time cold water is used and does not remain stagnant.

“As long as you have water supplied to your plumbing fixtures, you know you have water supplied to your sprinklers,” explains Jayson Drake, senior product manager, Plumbing and Fire Safety at Uponor.

Recently redesigned, the product uses fewer feet of crosslinked polyethylene (PEX) tubing and fewer connections than before, making it easier to design and install.
