What’s better than trying something new? How about trying something new, that is also tried and true. With more than 40 years of proven performance and 15 billion feet of PEX pipe installed worldwide, Uponor has proven it has legs in the commercial plumbing, radiant heating/cooling and hydronic piping sectors. And the pipe is ideal for any hydronic piping application, including connections to fan coil units, radiators, baseboard heaters, variable air volume (VAV) boxes and chilled beams.


Uponor PEX piping and ASTM F1960 ProPEX® expansion fittings are fully listed, easily specified products that deliver superior quality and long-term performance.

So why are engineers and installers moving away from copper, steel and black-iron pipe and switching to Uponor PEX for hydronic piping applications? Here are a few reasons:

1.  Durable, economical alternative to metal pipe


2.  Fully listed for commercial applications


3.  BIM and CAD support on uponorpro.com and uponorengineering.com


4.  PEX-a Pipe Support provides hanger spacing similar to that of copper


5.  PEX pipe, ProPEX fittings and PEX-a Pipe Support listed to ASTM E84 for plenum applications


6.  PEX pipe and ProPEX fittings backed by a 25-year limited warranty when installed by an Uponor-trained contractor
