pre-installed-pex-pipe Uponor North America (Uponor) is extending its current pre-insulated crosslinked polyethylene (PEX) pipe offering to include insulation thicknesses up to 2" to comply with the ASHRAE 90.1-2013 Energy Code and the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). The new offering includes both Uponor AquaPEX® pipe for potable plumbing applications as well as Wirsbo hePEX™ oxygen-barrier pipe for hydronic heating and cooling applications.

"Our pre-insulated PEX pipe with additional insulation thicknesses meets energy-code requirements, allowing us to offer contractors and design professionals a pre-insulated PEX product that can go into virtually any commercial plumbing or hydronic piping application," says Tony Radcliff, vice president, Marketing, Offerings and Engineering at Uponor. “It also aligns with our triple-bottom-line philosophy of sustainability — to respect the vital balance between people, planet and profit.”

In addition to its existing offering of ½" insulation surrounding ½" through 2" Uponor AquaPEX pipe, Uponor is now offering the pipe sizes with 1" and 1½" insulation. Uponor is also offering a completely new line of Pre-insulated Wirsbo hePEX pipe for hydronic heating and cooling applications. It is available in ½" through 2" pipe sizes with ½", 1", 1½" and 2" insulation.

The entire offering, which is available in coil lengths of 50, 75 or 100 feet, features manufactured seams in the insulation that run the entire length of the coil, providing greater installation efficiencies by eliminating the need for solvents, glues or tape during the installation process. The offering is also covered by the company’s 25-year limited warranty, which covers the PEX pipe as well as the ASTM F1960 ProPEX™ expansion fittings.
