Uponor advances pre-insulated pipes with Ecoflex VIP Thermo


Uponor advances pre-insulated pipes with Ecoflex VIP Thermo

Our extensive experience working on high-performance heating systems means that we know what installers and specifiers need their pipes to provide. We’ve used this expertise and insight to create Ecoflex VIP Thermo, a pre-insulated pipe that combines the highest standards of energy efficiency with advanced installation benefits.
The Ecoflex VIP Thermo represents the next generation of pre-insulated pipes thanks to its ability to significantly minimise heat and energy losses. The efficiency of the product stems from its unique hybrid design which combines technology from both bonded and unbonded insulated pipes to create a solution that delivers up to 48% lower heat loss compared to unbonded pipes, and 34% compared to bonded pipes.

We have combined sustainability with functionality to achieve the perfect balance; due to its design, Ecoflex VIP Thermo simplifies the application process without diminishing reliability. The new pipes are highly flexible and durable, making them ideal for complex designs and complex projects.

With up to 60% less bending force compared to alternative solutions on the market, Ecoflex VIP Thermo can be navigated around obstacles or laid across bumpy ground without requiring additional connections. This minimises potential weak points that could lead to leaks after the pipes have been laid, ensuring long-term functionality.

Uponor’s Ecoflex VIP Thermo pre-insulated pipes are ideal for use in both local heating networks that supply individuals and where house-to-house connections are required, as well as district heating networks that are increasingly being used for large complexes and multi-residential developments.

Where efficiency and sustainability considerations are a priority, installers can rest assured that using Ecoflex VIP Thermo will provide a heating system that meets the highest standards for both. Choosing high-performance solutions is vital, especially as the pipes which connect heating systems to the buildings we live and work in can account for up to 50% of a system’s heat loss.

Another benefit of our Ecoflex VIP Thermo is that the outer diameter of the pipe is up to 30% smaller than other alternatives on the market. This means that the trenches running from a heating network to a building can be smaller, saving time and labour while also making it easier for the installer to find suitable pathways for the pipes to run.
