Solutions for your comfort

Tap water

Underfloor heating


Drinking water – quality makes the difference Water is the source of life. It is important to bear this in mind when building a new home or renovating an existing one. Today, tap water is more and more often chemically treated in order to meet hygienic standards. Therefore, pipes are harmed in different and often more severe ways than in the past. But pipe systems are in contact with water more than anything else. This is why pipe materials should meet the highest hygienic standards – just as high as in the food industry. A fact that needs to be taken care of! Tap water systems – safety and durability count In order to master being exposed to high temperatures and pressures on the one hand and to fulfil long lifetime expectations on the other hand, tap water installations require high-tech solutions. It is essential that the pipe systems are thoroughly tested, easy to install and ensure long-living. Because investing in quality pays back!

Reliable fittings for your safety

Underfloor heating – the “home comfort system”

Uponor tap water systems are safe and economical solutions which cover everything you need for drinking and tap water at home.

It all comes down to connections – and nowhere is this more true than in water installations. Our innovative range of fittings provides you with durable connections and has a proven track record to protect you against any unpleasant surprises.

Comfort is a matter of individual perception. This is why the Uponor heating system is designed to meet a variety of different requirements. Whether you are building a new home or renovating an existing one, you will always get the comfort and cosiness you are looking for.

Our extensive range of connectors, elbows and T-joints means you’ll always find the right connection, whether press, screw or shrink.

At the same time, you can rest assured that your energy consumption is reduced.

We supply you with complete systems for delivering clean water from the house connection to the faucet. Clean and durable pipes Consider the pipe as the packaging of the most valuable food in your life – drinking water. We take care of it by using only the most advanced materials for our pipes. Whether you choose pure plastic or multi layer composite pipes, all our products are resistant to corrosion and tears. Besides, they perfectly endure the high and long-term temperature and pressure exposures of a tap water installation.

Everything under control Perfectly matched components

One of the keys to the comfort and efficiency of underfloor heating lies in the functionality of the control system. What counts is not only the outside temperature, but also the individual sensation of the temperature in a room. As this is affected by sunshine and light irradiation as well as by the air temperature, a control system has to take all these factors into account.

Source the entire system from us – alongside the many material-related arguments in our favour, this is the key advantage of Uponor drinking water systems. And what’s more, they’re quick and easy to install. We do not only offer a wide range of different dimensions, we also have a large selection of accessories.

Our radio control sensors just feel like you! And thanks to the wireless technology, you can place the thermostat wherever it is most convenient for you.

Each of our solutions is based on a tried and tested concept which means we can provide for any type of drinking water installation – be it for a brand-new house, for renovations or extensions.

Complete systems – because comfort begins with the installation Underfloor heating is no longer a luxury or something like rocket science. Being one of the pioneers in this field, Uponor offers a comprehensive system – perfectly tailored to meet your specific needs and your individual convenience. Apart from our proven and state-of-the-art pipe technologies and our advanced control solutions, we offer manifolds and a large variety of accessories for a reliable installation. We have furthermore developed several fixing standards that fulfil a wide range of building requirements and are particularly suitable for different installation conditions. All of them do have one thing in common: they are fast and safe to install.

Healthy home comfort – you can feel it and you can even see it Underfloor heating warms where it is needed: warm feet and cool head – just as the human body requires. Forced air or radiator heating – the principle of conventional heating solutions is based on moving air. And that is nothing that humans appreciate – but dust favours! Regarding the growing phenomenon of allergies, this is especially to be taken into account when choosing the proper heating system for your home. On top of that, underfloor heating systems allow you to use your space as you want – and not as your radiator dictates. Because the home zone is the comfort zone.

Efficient energy consumption – for a better future The sustainability of buildings is becoming more and more important. The efficient use of energy is one of our global challenges. Underfloor heating saves up to 12 % of energy. Thus, it is not only state-of-the-art in heating a home, but also ecologically friendly.

Tap water installation with the Uponor PE-Xa system Tap water PE-Xa system Reliable, quick and easy to install Furthermore we offer our PE-Xa system for tap water installations. Here you can find out more about the specific advantages of our cross-linked polyethylene pipe system. Highly robust, extremely safe and with excellent longrun behaviour – these are the main criteria in favour of our cross-linked polyethylene (PE-Xa) pipes. Using our Quick & Easy fittings, PE-Xa doesn ’t only provide highest reliability in terms of tightness, but also saves you quite a bit of mounting time.

Patented connection solutions – reliable and safe Our PE-Xa system is the perfect solution for tap water installation. One reason is of course the high hygienic quality of our polyethylene materials. However, our connection solutions are as important as the materials. All of the components of the PE-Xa system are complementary, which does not only provide a maximum of installation simplicity, but also contributes to safest performance of the whole system.

Outstanding fitting tightness In terms of connection, we make use of a special memory effect of the PE-Xa pipes. Once expanded with one of our tools and pushed onto the fitting, the material shrinks back to its original state. Thus, absolute tightness of the connection is guaranteed. And this does apply for the long term. Manifolds and accessories for joint free pipe installation Another major advantage of our PE-Xa system is the broad variety of manifolds and accessories. If you want, you can even centralise all connections in one single point.
