Viega Introduces New Insulated PEX Barrier Piping System
Pre-insulated, flexible, piping system ideal for commercial or residential snow melting projects. Applications include helipads, loading docks, parking garages, driveways and other applications.
Viega introduced its ProRadiant™ Insulated PEX Barrier Piping System for its snow melting system. The piping system is ideal for applications including helipads, loading docks, parking garages and stairs.
The Insulated PEX Barrier Piping System’s superior insulation results in a reduction in heat loss over competitive products in the market. The system’s high-compressive strength makes it ideal for burial under areas with high traffic loads or foot traffic. The “smart” membrane between the outer casing and insulation enhances and maintains the insulation value, keeping operating performance high throughout the pipe’s service life.
The bonded system eliminates risk of water penetration and no special considerations for thermal expansion are required. The polyethylene (LDPE) jacket resists any impact or blows incurred during the installation or transportation. The piping system is UV-treated, requires no special tools for assembly and is available in long coils or custom coil lengths.
“The Viega ProRadiant™ Insulated PEX Barrier Piping System is designed to add value and quality to countless snow melting projects,” David Desjardins, product manager, heating and cooling at Viega. “The system is easy to specific, design and quote projects. It is proven to be one of the top insulated piping systems on the market.”
