Uponor introduces its PEX-a Pipe Support and two additional engineered polymer multi-port tees to its offering. PEX-a Pipe Support is a steel channel that provides continuous support of cross-linked polyethylene tubing in suspended piping applications, enabling hanger spacing equal to that of copper. The support is available in 9’ lengths for 1”, 1 1/4”, 1 1/2” and 2” PEX-a pipe sizes and can be used in commercial plumbing as well as hydronic distribution systems.
The new EP multi-port tees help to enhance Uponor’s already extensive line of engineered polymer fittings. Both feature a 1” ProPEX inlet with 1/2” ProPEX branch outlets in 7- or 8-outlet configurations. They are an ideal parallel-piping solution for multifamily and hospitality applications, allowing header termination and water distribution to lavatories with one fitting. Compared to individual tees, the multi-ports offer up to 60% fewer connections and 78% less combined length.
