Rigid PEX Supports

The flexibility of PEX tubing makes it an attractive option for both new construction and retrofit plumbing and heating installations. PEX’s flexibility makes it easier to run, reduces the number of necessary fittings, and gives it added freeze resistance. One minor downside is that PEX can be more difficult to run through walls. Uponor’s Metal Straight-Through Supports provide a safe and easy way to pass 1/2” PEX tubing through a floor, wall, or ceiling. The zinc-plated supports have four nail holes, cover 3-1/2” of a piece of tubing, and are available on SupplyHouse.com.
