RAUPEX® PEXa pipe with 12-month UV shield protection (compared to other PEXa manufacturers at one to six months only) is the smart alternative to copper and other polymers. RAUPEX means proven durability while saving money on both materials and installation. It also means added flexibility and precision during project planning, while achieving excellent long-term flow performance and water quality.
The patent-pending design of every EVERLOC+ compression-sleeve fittings features the latest in polymer and lead-free brass technology, including four sealing edges designed for no-leak security. When compressed with a textured PEXa sleeve, EVERLOC+ connections are immediately ready for pressure testing and warranty-backed for years of reliable service.
The heavy-duty EVERLOC+ power tools feature quick-change expander heads and color-coded compression jaws sized for up to 2-inch pipe. The power tools easily overcome installation challenges with a 360-degree rotating tool housing and multi-position compression jaws.
Independent testers at Home Innovation Research Labs put EVERLOC+ to the test in three days of exhaustive time trial applications against PEXa pipe with F1960 cold-expansion fittings, copper with solder fittings and copper with press fittings. The results: RAUPEX UV shield pipe and EVERLOC+ compression-sleeve fittings took the checkered flag with installation times of up to 65 percent faster than copper plumbing systems and up to 20 percent faster than other PEXa cold-expansion fittings.
And keep in mind that EVERLOC+ creates secure connections in ANY weather that are instantly ready for pressure testing. Installers master the consistent EVERLOC+ technique after just a few connections. And with easy visual verification, leaks based on overlooked dry-fitted connections are ancient history.
EVERLOC+ is already turning heads in the residential market. So why not run the numbers – copper versus EVERLOC+ – for your next commercial or multi-family project?
