Uponor commercial radiant heating and cooling systems
Improve occupant comfort, reduce energy consumption, and save on installation time with Uponor radiant heating and cooling systems.
“The job schedule was critical on this project. Working with Haselden Construction, we knew that the five days allocated to us were not enough time to build all the radiant heating and cooling zones. It was critical we find another way.
— Tony Barela, Project Manager, Trautman & Shreve, Denver, Colo.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colo., leveraged Uponor Radiant Rollout™ Mats to meet energy, cost, and project timeline requirements.
Radiant solutions to meet your commercial project needs
Efficient installation choices
Select from tie downs, staples, rails, or Radiant Rollout Mats when installing your radiant heating and cooling system.
Flexible piping solutions
Save 80% on installation time
Radiant Rollout Mats are a custom-designed, prefabricated network of Uponor PEX pipe that installers can simply "roll out" on the job site, saving up to 80% on installation time. The factory-installed header minimizes connections, manifolds and distribution piping, which provides benefits all the way back to the mechanical room.Watch video

“It’s a really comfortable system and there was a desire to not sacrifice comfort for energy on this project.”
— Joe Wenisch, Project Manager, Integral Group, Oakland, Calif.
Uponor commercial hydronic heating and cooling systems
Uponor PEX and PP-RCT offer a complete polymer solution in sizes from ½" to 12". The corrosion-resistant, lightweight piping systems can work together or stand alone to best meet the needs of your hydronic distribution project, whether it’s transporting fluids to chilled beams, fan coil units, VAVs, AHUs, unit heaters, or radiant manifolds.
“PP-RCT is an awesome product, which is why we are already using it on other projects. The flow characteristics of the pipe, its light weight and flexibility, the ease of lifting and maneuvering it — all these benefits are huge compared with steel. The longevity of the system is also so much better.”
— Aron Frailey, Owner, Thermal Engineering, LLC, South Salt Lake, Utah
Utah Valley University leveraged Uponor PP-RCT for their 970-foot pedestrian bridge snowmelt system.
Product offerings to meet the needs of your project

Uponor PEX turf conditioning systems
Uponor was the first to use PEX piping for hydronic turf conditioning systems. These systems are now used by the National Football League (NFL) and in numerous soccer and other athletic stadiums in Europe, Canada, and the United States.
Preserve natural turf year round
Uponor PEX turf conditioning systems use PEX piping embedded in the soil beneath the turf to circulate a warm water/glycol mixture that helps to maintain an optimum soil temperature for the root bulb of grass plants. This ensures a constant root temperature for lush, green grass year round, which, in turn, helps to protect athletes from serious injury in all climates and seasons.
Benefits of an Uponor PEX turf conditioning system
Superior field conditions
Optimal soil temperature promotes growth, faster recovery, a longer playing season and superior field conditions, which helps protect athletes from serious injury in all climates and seasons.
Transferable limited warranty
Uponor PEX pipe and ProPEX® fittings are backed by a 25-year transferable limited warranty.
Long PEX pipe coil lengths greatly reduce or eliminate any underground connections.
