Importance of Optimal Bend Radius

ProGuard makes it easy to maintain the optimal outside bend radius recommendation of 3.3” to 3.4”. HoldRite’s ProGuard PEX stub-out solution will allow for an error-proof install that won’t result in unexpected repairs or replacements.

Incorrect bend radius can create many problems:

  • Kinking
  • Flattening
  • Reduce the flow rate inside the PEX tubing
  • Increased turbulence noise
  • Possible loss of PEX tubing warranty
  • Weak or damaged tubing

HOLDRITE ProGuard:

  • Allows for a grip of 1/2” nominal tubing
  • Stays within drywall thickness
  • Maintains optimal bend radius to prevent kinking and flattening
  • Reduces the risk of damaged tubing and leaks
  • Remains flush with the drywall surface
