Uponor stands for modern renovation solutions. Uponor PE-Xa pipe used for refurbishment of chilled water pipelines in South Africa

Uponor PE-Xa pipe is known as a clean and easy installation system because of its Quick and Easy connection technology. Its long life-time and corrosion resistance were additional reasons to choose Uponor PE-Xa pipe for the refurbishment of the chilled water pipelines in the head office of South Africa's Standard Bank located in Johannesburg.The existing conventional steel piping system used for the chilled water distribution of the air conditioning system had failed after only 20 years of service. This caused damages to the vapour barrier and resulted in condensate forming on the steel pipes. The building did not need to be vacated and remained operational during the majority of the refurbishment. With conventional steel pipes this would not have been possible due to the high noise level required for cutting, grinding and welding in order to install the material. With Uponor PE-Xa pipes and Uponor Quick and Easy fittings from dim. 20 - 32 mm and the Wipex fittings from 40 - 110 mm, the installation was realised in a modern, efficient way. The installation of Uponor eval PE-Xa pipes started at the risers. The PE-Xa pipes are used to supply a network of fancoil units in the raised flooring system - just like the cables in a computer room. More than 50.000 meters of pipe and thousands of fittings were used for the entire project, resulting in a turnover of 550.000 EUR. Our partner for Uponor PE-Xa pipe in South Africa, Afripex had been working on this important project for at least 6 months and could finally close the deal in the beginning of 2004. The deliveries were completed in March 2004 and the installation was finished a few weeks later. Johannesburg is nicknamed "Egoli", meaning "place of gold". Forty percent of the world's gold has been found there. With a population of around 3.2 Mio. it is South Africa's largest city. Johannesburg had experienced a building boom in the 1960`s and 1970`s. Many of these buildings now require refurbishment and renovation, nurturing great potential for Uponor's state of the art systems in South Africa and raise the expectancy of prosperous business for Afripex in the near future.

Day-care centre to be built with energy piles

As requested by the City of Vantaa, the Vaaralanpuisto day-care centre has been planned based on the "nearly 0 energy days" concept. Construction work for the day-care centre began in late summer 2016, and the project will be completed in July 2017. Project costs are estimated at EUR 5.4 million, and the day-care centre will accommodate about 130 children. Among the various energy production options available for the site, the City of Vantaa chose the energy pile and solar thermal collector system jointly developed by Uponor and Ruukki.

An office building, where proper comfort is provided for doing your job The commercial buildings provide more or less limited space as the workplace for people. Therefore cooling the air is an important factor in maintaining their comfort during their stay. In order to keep the daily work undisturbed, the system used should be installed easily, should be efficient economically, and should be hygienic.

The New Deichmanske Library - Bjørvika, Oslo

Deichman is equipped with Thermally Active Building System - a system for storing the energy in the concrete ceiling. It is primarily a cooling system, but it can also be used as a heating system. When in cooling mode, no energy is used as the heat is drawn into the concrete, only when it is transferred from the concrete and into the water pipes that are cast in the decking. The need for installed power is reduced, and operating expenses are significantly reduced as opposed to in a air-based cooling system. The TABS is cast into the Prefab elements, which is a BubbleDeck construction with spans up to 10.5 meters.
