A first for PEX plumbing systems, Uponor now offers a ProPEX® EP 45-degree Elbow to facilitate directional changes at a 45-degree angle. The elbow is available in 1½" and 2" sizes and features Uponor’s unique ProPEX connection that capitalizes on the shape memory of Uponor PEX-a pipe to create strong, durable connections that hold tight with 1,000 pounds of radial force.

The new 2" EP Multiport Tee, targeted for commercial restrooms, features three 1" outlets and provides an efficient solution for flush bank installations with fewer fittings and connections. Designed to centralize connections and supply lines, the tee provides material and labor savings, allowing for flexibility in design and installation.

“With our continued growth in commercial plumbing, Uponor is striving to fill the need for products that make it faster and easier to install PEX in various commercial plumbing applications,” says Jayson Drake, director, Plumbing and Fire Safety, at Uponor. “Expanding our EP product line with these new tees and multiports signifies our commitment to the commercial PEX plumbing market.”
