NSF fire safety certification meets U.S. and Canadian fire protection requirements.

Uponor is the first PEX pipe manufacturer to earn certification under NSF International’s Fire Sprinkler Pipe and Fittings Program. Uponor’s PEX piping and fittings were tested to ensure compliance with all fire protection requirements for multi-purpose piping as defined in the International Residential Code (IRC) and the National Building Code of Canada.

Uponor’s pipe and fittings also comply with NSF/ANSI Standard 61: Drinking Water System Components-Health Effects, NSF/ANSI Standard 14: Plastic Piping System Components and other standards for potable water applications and residential use.

NSF certified pipe and systems fittings must meet rigorous requirements for use in multi-purpose systems that serve both drinking water and residential fire sprinkler applications, and also comply with UL 1821, Standard for Safety Thermoplastic Sprinkler Pipe and Fittings for Fire Protection Service and ULC/ORD-C199P, Combustible Piping for Sprinkler Systems.

Both U.S. and Canadian building codes require water distribution products used in fire protection systems to conform to these standards. Uponor’s NSF-certified fire sprinkler pipe may now bear the NSF-fs (fire safety) mark, as well as UL 1821 and ULC/ORD-C199P standard designations, and it appears on NSF International’s online listings. NSF International will conduct ongoing testing and unannounced inspections to verify that the pipes continue to comply with all requirements.
