Leading plastic pipe manufacturer Uponor will be exhibiting at the Chartered Institute of Housing’s annual conference ‘Housing 2023’. As a trusted solutions provider to the social housing sector, Uponor’s team of technical advisors will welcome visitors to Stand E59 to discuss how its products can help to support a sustainable future.
Taking place from 27 – 29 June at Manchester Central, Housing 2023 is considered to be Europe’s largest housing festival. It provides ‘a platform for key stakeholders to come together to discuss, debate, partner, learn and improve the lives of the people we house’.
With a wide range of products to suit every type of development, regeneration or retrofit, Uponor will showcase its collection of drinking water, radiant heating and cooling solutions. Notably, visitors will learn more about the company’s PEX Pipe Blue – the world’s first bio-based PEX pipe. This pipe was on the shortlist for CIBSE’s Embodied Carbon Award earlier this year.
This innovative product is engineered with a reduced carbon footprint (of up to 90% compared to fossil based plastic PEX pipes) making it an ideal specification for use in conjunction with radiant heating and cooling systems in both new builds and renovations where sustainability and environmental impact are a key focus.
Delegates will also have the opportunity to learn about the company’s expertise in district heating networks and how Uponor’s pre-insulated Ecoflex system is an ideal solution for social housing upgrades seeking to minimise disruption to tenants, thanks to its easy installation.
The company is also offering stand visitors the chance to win a £100 Amazon voucher by entering a prize draw that will run during the event.
James Griffiths, Business Development Director at Uponor UK, says: “Sustainability remains a key topic for the housing sector and at Uponor, we believe that water holds the key to a sustainable future.
“Our product, service, and solution portfolio is built for responding to the changes and challenges of the coming decades, and we regard Housing 2023 as an important date in our event calendar where we can meet with stakeholders from the sector and discuss how we can work together to deliver for those living in our communities.”
With over 100 years of experience, Uponor has built a reputation for leading the way in the fields of infrastructure, local heat distribution, plumbing and underfloor heating. To find out more, visit www.uponor.com.
