PEX-a Pipe Support is a steel channel that provides continuous support of crosslinked polyethylene (PEX-a) tubing in suspended piping applications, enabling hanger spacing equal to that of copper. The support is available in 9-foot lengths for 1", 1¼", 1½" 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 ½" ProPEX branch outlets in 7- or 8-outlet configurations. They are an ideal parallel-piping solution for multi-family 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.

“We are continuing to see growth in the commercial plumbing marketplace and are answering the need for products that make it faster, easier and more efficient to install PEX-a piping systems,” says Jayson Drake, director, Plumbing and Fire Safety, at Uponor.
