Uponor was honored by Professional Builder® magazine when the publication awarded the newly enhanced proPANEL® mixing panels with their 100 Best New Products for 2008 award. This top industry award recognizes the most significant new building products introduced each year based on technological advancement, significant product improvement and increasing competition of a product line. The goal for redesigning the proPANEL units was to offer customers a mixing panel that helped save them time and money while providing an innovative, high-quality, reliable product. Receiving this recognition from Professional Builder reinforces the idea that the new proPANEL line offers contractors an effective solution for their radiant system application needs.
RBc: Congrats to Uponor for this award...as we have been saying for the past decades...the heating components for radiant systems (and all hydronic systems for that matter) should be treated like any other appliance. Pre engineered and assembled to UL/CSA standards in an appliance factory with quality control and standardization. Use these and you'll reduce carbon emissions, installation times, wiring and start up challenges. Learn more about this here.
