Uponor’s AquaSAFE™ fire sprinkler system A first in the PEX industry, Uponor’s AquaSAFE™ residential fire sprinkler system is now approved for use in exposed applications. Uponor’s listing to UL 1821, Thermoplastic Sprinkler Pipe and Fittings for Fire Protection Service, now approves (with certain limitations) the use of flexible Uponor AquaPEX® tubing and ProPEX® expansion fittings in unfinished basements with dimensional lumber, engineered wood or wood I-joists in accordance with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 13D standard.

“Many builders are now installing fire sprinklers to address the International Residential Code requirements for protection of lightweight construction,” says Eric Skare , product manager, fire safety. “with this new listing, an uponor aquasafe system now provides the ideal solution for these unfinished basement applications.”

Uponor AquaSAFE systems can be installed in multipurpose (combined cold-water plumbing and fire sprinklers) or standalone (fire sprinklers only) configurations, providing flexibility in design and ease of installation.

“This listing further solidifies Uponor’s commitment to the fire sprinkler industry, and we will continue to explore opportunities that will allow us to offer residential fire sprinklers as a viable life-safety solution for homeowners and homebuilders,” says Skare.
