PE-RT Barrier pert flexible piping radiant heatingIntroducing NIBCO® PERTpro™: the next evolutionary step in flexible piping. A unique combination of flexibility, economy, lack of coil set, tight dimensional tolerance, and on-time delivery makes NIBCO PERTpro the plumbing professional’s first choice for potable water distribution and radiant heating. NIBCO offers a full PE-RT system, as PERTpro can be used with NIBCO poly or bronze insert fittings and crimp rings, crimp sleeves or stainless steel sleeves. 

NIBCO PERTpro is stronger at hydrostatic pressure, has a lower carbon footprint, is 100% recyclable, and creates a seamless transition from PEX because it uses the same fittings, tools, and joining devices (copper crimp ring, copper crimp sleeve, or stainless steel sleeve).

Barrier PE-RT for hydronics offers a distinct advantage over barrier PEX: it is more flexible. This means installers will find it better for making the floor loops common in radiant heating. Barrier PERTpro is green in color identifying it as the environmentally-friendly choice for hydronics. Radiant heating is not only a more comfortable heat, it is a green choice since radiant heating is more efficient than traditional forced air.
