F.W. Webb Co. has added Uponor PEX-a piping and fittings to its plumbing and heating product lineup. PEX-a is a flexible plastic tubing used for commercial and residential potable water, hydronic heating, radiant cooling and heating, fire protection and snow and ice melting applications. Backed by over 50 years of proven performance, Uponor PEX-a is a leading choice among contractors today.
Unlike copper and CPVC systems, PEX resists corrosion, pitting and scaling. Featuring a flexible and durable design, Uponor PEX-a piping systems can expand up to three times its original diameter, making it the most freeze-resistant piping available. It offers fewer connections and potential leak points for greater installation efficiency, water conservation and more affordable material costs. Uponor also has one of the most comprehensive offerings on the market with PEX-a piping available in sizes up to 3-inch for potable applications and 4-inch for closed-loop hydronic applications.
"We consistently review our product portfolio to ensure it includes the latest technology and leading brands in the industry," said Jeff Thompson, senior vice president, purchasing, F.W. Webb. "Uponor products are a high-quality and long-lasting solution. We are pleased to now have it available in our stores across the Northeast."
Uponor Pex-a product, AquaPEX pipe, coupled with its unique ProPEX connection method, transports water through heating and plumbing systems. Its innovative design helps eliminate water hammer and also dampens rushing water noise. PEX-a tubing embedded in the slab or under the floor can also circulate warm or cool water in radiant systems. Outside, it can be used under concrete and asphalt for snow and ice melting systems. In addition, Uponor PEX-a can be used for hydronic piping, pre-insulated pipe and fire sprinkler systems.
