Not all ball valves are the same. For PEX piping systems, whether plumbing or hydronic heating and cooling, the type of ball valve can actually impact system quality and performance. That’s why Uponor, the leader in polymer piping solutions, has launched a newly redesigned offering of ProPEX® lead-free (LF) brass ball valves for both residential and commercial applications.
Committed to providing professionals with products they can trust, Uponor is offering the newly redesigned ball valves to provide greater value by delivering on quality and reliability all at a competitive cost. Now, engineers and installers can have greater confidence in meeting the performance and budget demands of today’s residential and commercial projects.
Manufactured from premium, lead-free, dezincification-resistant brass, these full-port ball valves feature positive tube stops that ensure installers insert the valve into the pipe far enough without overextension. The valves all feature a blowout-proof stem design to ensure a lifetime of trusted reliability that professionals have come to expect from Uponor. In addition, the ASTM F1960 connection method offers a solid, strong seal without the need for glues, torches, or fire watch, providing greater safety and cost savings on job sites.
The residential valves are available in sizes from ½” to 1″ and feature a chrome-plated ball along with a stop and drain (waste) option. The commercial valves are available in sizes from ½” to 2″ and feature a stainless-steel ball and stem along with stem extension kits to accommodate insulation thicknesses up to 2″.
Both ProPEX ball valve offerings are backed by a five-year warranty and meet IPC, UPC, and IRC building codes in addition to being listed to NSF 14, 61, 359, and 372 for residential and commercial construction.
