Uponor's Quick & Easy joint technology was chosen by six housing companies located in the Hurttivuori district in Turku, Finland, containing a total of 104 flats to renovate their piping system. The accommodation had a joint heating plant, whose insulated elements were renovated in such a way that all residents were able to live in their homes for the entire duration of the renovation.
Thanks to the joint technology, there was no need to assemble T-shaped pieces separately from parts. T-shaped joints made of PPSU plastic were used instead. This significantly reduces the number of joints remaining underground. The mains run all over the plot, and several branches were built. One of the advantages of Q&E joints is that they are quick to install. Easy-to-use tools can always be installed without problems. The joints have also proved to be reliable in pressure tests.
Pipes run underground for a total of 5 kilometres. This is an interesting site as it uses all of the products within the product group – from the large 110 mm pipe in the heat distribution room all the way to the 18 mm flat-specific pipes.
