NFPA Safety Alert: Antifreeze in Residential Sprinklers

July 22, 2010

We have received inquiries about NFPA's recent safety alert regarding concerns about the combustibility of antifreeze solutions in residential sprinkler systems.

As you know, Uponor's AquaSAFEâ„¢ multipurpose fire sprinkler system does not contain antifreeze. Uponor's PEX tubing is the most freeze-resistant tubing on the market and requires no antifreeze hassles, such as the expensive annual inspection and maintenance costs. Please educate your customers as necessary.
