Meet Demanding Specs, Tight Deadlines and Budget Targets with LOC-It-Up Confidence

By combining RAUPEX® UV shield PEXa pipe and the EVERLOC+ compression-sleeve fitting system, you can meet or exceed common standards for commercial or multi-family plumbing projects on three critical measures:

- Reliability
- Safety
- Cost

Reliability

Freeze-break Resistance – Manufactured in-house to exacting formulas from the finest raw materials, RAUPEX® crosslinked polyethylene PEXa pipe resists breakage by expanding in freezing temperatures before returning to its original diameter.

4x More Secure – EVERLOC+ compression-sleeve fittings with four sealing edges and textured compression sleeves outperform alternative plumbing systems with our zero-leakage design.

0 Build-up – RAUPEX pipe resists corrosion, pitting and scale buildup, which means no reduced flow or pinhole leaks.

Up to 1-year UV Resistance – RAUPEX UV shield pipe features UV resistance of one year, the highest among PEXa plumbing pipes, which prevents the pipe from becoming brittle. 

Safety 

NSF 14/61 Certified – Always safe drinking water with no mineral build-up. 

Protects Workers and the Environment – No harmful glues or chemicals are used during installation, and there’s no burn or fire risk from soldering.

Quiet Operation - Our full-flow EVERLOC+ fittings plus the flexibility of RAUPEX pipe limits pressure loss and absorbs pressure surges, thus reducing water hammer.

Savings

Fastest Installation  RAUPEX pipe and EVERLOC+ compression-sleeve fittings can be installed up to 65 percent faster than traditional copper plumbing systems and 20 percent faster than other PEXa with cold-expansion fittings, according to this independent time study from Home Innovations Research Labs.

Flexible Pipe, Stable Pricing  Fewer fittings, less weight and simplified installation add up to savings on time and materials. Plus, pricing for PEXa doesn’t fluctuate like it does for copper.

0 Wait Time  Once the EVERLOC+ fitting has been installed, the system is ready for pressure testing. In fact, EVERLOC+ installed 35 percent faster than alternative systems when temperature was dropped from 70° F to 33° F (21° C to -6° C) in a cold-room time study.

Forget the Negative Stereotypes

Look Closer at the Advantages of PEXa

PEXa is now used almost exclusively in single-family new construction and remodeling. That’s because residential contractors and builders know PEXa is a vastly superior product to the polymer pipes that first came onto the market.

And they know that the REHAU PEXa Plumbing system is easier to install and more durable than copper.

So, forget those negative stereotypes about PEX and let us show you the difference the REHAU PEXa plumbing system will make in the success of your next commercial or multi-family plumbing project.
