Products From Uponor

PEX Plumbing


If you’re familiar with copper or CPVC pipe for plumbing, you might be surprised to know that PEX is now installed more often in new-home construction than copper and CPVC combined. This is because of the extreme durability and cost-effectiveness of PEX. PEX resists corrosion, pitting and scaling and, due to its extreme flexibility, PEX can actually expand up to three times its original diameter, making it the most freeze-resistant piping available. And because it’s not made from metal, PEX eliminates concerns of dangerous lead and other metals in a plumbing system.






Fire Sprinkler System


Uponor’s residential multipurpose fire sprinkler system called AquaSAFE™ combines with a home’s cold-water plumbing to offer homeowners added peace of mind. The flexible Uponor PEX piping in the system is highly freeze-resistant, eliminating the need for antifreeze and maintenance checks, while the non-stagnant design eliminates the need for costly check valves and backflow preventers as well as the annual maintenance hassles that accompany them.








Radiant Heating and Cooling


Uponor, formerly Wirsbo, was the first to bring radiant floor heating to North America more than 40 years ago. Today, Uponor is the leader in radiant heating and cooling for homes and businesses around the globe. In a radiant floor heating system, warm water flows through flexible, durable PEX tubing located under the floors to create an even, comfortable warmth that provides superior energy efficiency with enhanced indoor environmental quality (IEQ).
