The new ProPEX Lead-free Brass Fire Sprinkler Adapter from Uponor is a more cost-effective alternative to stainless-steel adapters and provides easier installation on a variety of mounting surfaces.Easier to install and more cost-effective compared with traditional stainless-steel fire sprinkler adapters, the ProPEX™ Lead-free* Brass Fire Sprinkler Adapter from Uponor is an industry-first. Made of lead-free brass to effectively meet lead-level legislation and conform to NSF Annex G for lead-free plumbing requirements, the new adapter provides easier installation on a variety of mounting surfaces.

“The new ProPEX Lead-free Brass Fire Sprinkler Adapter offers installers flexible pre-assembly and mounting options with no blocking required,” says Jayson Drake, senior product manager, Plumbing and Fire Safety, at Uponor.

Available in ¾" and 1" tees, each assembly requires a mounting bracket and a push-on locking nut (sold separately). The adapter also features Uponor’s proven, cold-expansion ProPEX fitting system for strong, durable and reliable connections without the need for torches, glues, solvents or gauges.

*Per NSF Annex G, lead-free products contain no more than 0.25% weighted average lead content on wetted surfaces.
