Fire Safety System
AquaSAFE™ Fire Sprinkler System
With the International Residential Code (IRC) requiring fire sprinklers in all new homes built after Jan. 1, 2011, Uponor has the ideal building solution — AquaSAFE — a multipurpose plumbing and fire sprinkler system that provides several key benefits. (1) It verifies fresh water is available each time a cold-water plumbing fixture is used, offering homeowners incredible peace of mind. (2) The non-stagnant system also eliminates the need for expensive check valves and backflow preventers, as well as the annual maintenance that goes along with them. (3) By combining both the plumbing and fire sprinkler systems, oftentimes the trusted plumbing contractor already on the job can also install the fire sprinkler system, saving valuable time and construction scheduling hassles.
For contractors, AquaSAFE is a proven and established product that offers a profitable new business opportunity by expanding on what they already know how to do — install PEX plumbing systems. For homebuilders, AquaSAFE systems often allow tighter development densities, narrower streets, longer cul-de-sacs, smaller water mains and reduced fees. For homeowners, AquaSAFE offers unparalleled peace of mind with a non-stagnant, multipurpose system that verifies fresh water is available to their fire safety system if it is ever needed.
