Uponor Quick&Easy is a connection system invented by Uponor for plumbing installations. The Q&E Ring with stop edges represents the Uponor design ethos: it makes installation work faster and easier, improves quality and eliminates material waste. To create a fitting, the Q&E Ring is placed on the pipe. The stop edges keep the ring in place. The ring and pipe are rapidly expanded using a power tool. Due to thermo elastic memory, the Q&E ring instantly begins to shrink to its original shape. The cross section of the ring focuses the force. Within seconds a strong, watertight and ecological connection has been created.
