Uponor PEX-a Pipe Support is a galvanized steel channel that provides continuous support of PEX in suspended piping applications, enabling hanger spacing similar to that of copper or steel pipe. The product is available in 9-foot lengths for ½”, ¾”, 1″, 1¼”, 1½”, 2″, 2½”, 3″ and 3½” PEX pipe sizes and comes with nylon-coated, stainless-steel strapping to secure the pipe to the support.
