Innovation at Uponor

Use water economically

Water is crucial to humans, animals and plants. Many people do not at all know that it is also a limited resource on our planet. Water is our most important resource and will increasingly become the focus of attention in the coming years. In the future, the professional management of water is therefore crucial to the survival on our planet. Uponor continuously expands its expertise in the area of drinking water. Monitoring water quality and linking the Internet of Things with intelligent monitoring and control point the way to a secure future.

Phyn Plus

Safety and economy

As part of a joint venture with Belkin Uponor has launched „Phyn“ - a new type of system, that automatically monitors the drinking water supply in buildings. This innovation helps to avoid damage from leaks and to reduce water consumption overall. Uponor is thus expanding its competence and offering its customers an added value.

  Phyn can also save resources and money. The early warning of leaks or pipe breaks reduces damage and thus reduces insurance premiums, for example. Expert planers would be able to access digital data from systems that have already been installed when planning the dimensions of drinking water systems. HVAC specialist companies could offer their customers additional monitoring services.

Renovating – potential for more energy-efficient building


Many people are attracted to the special charm of old buildings. What many do not suspect is the tremendous potential for a more sustainable environmental balance is lying in wait in old buildings. Low-emission or CO2-neutral heating improves the energy yield significantly. Especially when they are installed in the flooring. Underfloor heating systems manage low supply temperatures and thus help to save energy. The plumbing systems usually have to be fundamentally replaced when refurbishing old buildings, but when done properly lasts a long time. Drinking water and sewage pipelines must be replaced in order to meet modern hygiene standards, but in long run this saves money, protects from leakages and delivers you fresh drinking water.
