This new product offering makes it even easier for plumbing professionals to install all-plastic plumbing systems featuring Wirsbo AQUAPEX® tubing and Uponor’s advanced engineered plastic (EP) technology, which is highly durable and resists corrosion, pitting and scaling from aggressive water. Additionally, EP carries a much more stable cost when compared to metal alternatives.

“Uponor provides several different EP products that are highly durable and reliable — especially in areas that have aggressive water issues,” says Steve Lockridge, senior product manager, Plumbing, for Uponor. “Increasing our EP offering with these new Opposing-port, Multi-port Tees allows installers even greater design and installation flexibility to meet any residential plumbing application.”

The EP Opposing-port, Multi-port Tees are available in six different configurations — a flow-through style with 3, 4 or 6 outlets, and a branch style with 3, 4 or 8 outlets, which makes them ideal for zone plumbing in two directions.

And because they provide a reduced number of connections, these molded, one-piece tees can also greatly enhance flow performance. Additionally, their more compact design mounts within a wall, floor or ceiling easily, without the need for an access panel.

The Opposing-port, Multi-port Tees also feature Uponor’s unique ProPEX® fitting system for a fast, reliable connection that holds strong even with up to 1,000 pounds of pull force, and the entire product line addresses all ANSI/NSF and state lead-content initiatives.

“Offering these new EP Opposing-port, Multi-port Tees makes it even easier and more cost-effective for plumbing professionals to install an efficient, effective and highly durable Uponor plumbing system,” says Lockridge.

Uponor is a leading supplier of PEX-a plumbing, fire safety and radiant heating and cooling systems for the residential and commercial building markets across North America and Europe. Uponor employs 4,700 people globally. Uponor Corporation is listed on the OMX Nordic Exchange in Helsinki, Finland.
