M&G DuraVent Gets Bradford White Approval for All Power Direct Vent Commercial and Residential Model Water Heaters

February 28, 2013

Vacaville, CA – M&G DuraVent announced today that it has gotten more key approvals for PolyPro Venting Systems. Bradford White has now approved PolyPro single-wall, concentric, and flex for all Power Direct Vent tank-type water heaters that accept PVC, CPVC or ABS venting.

All Power Direct Vent models are approved to be vented with PolyPro. Bradford White’s approval includes their High Efficiency Condensing Commercial, Power Direct Vent Commercial, Residential Power Direct Vent, and Residential Power Vent models.

"DuraVent is pleased to have a relationship with Bradford White and others - offering the market an opportunity to vent with PolyPro, an excellent venting product that is safe and easy to install and is perfectly suited for their water heaters.” said Mr. Brooks Sherman, President and CEO of M&G DuraVent.

PolyPro is an engineered system specifically designed for venting heating appliances. Gasketed joints require no primers or adhesives and easily assemble in seconds with just a splash of water. Terminations are designed for superior performance in poor environmental conditions. PolyPro is tested and listed to the ULC S636 standard in Canada and rated as a Class IIA, IIB, and IIC vent system. PolyPro offers the only double-wall polypropylene flex in the U.S., making it durable for relining masonry chimneys, factory-built chimneys, and useful for relining B-vent pipe when retrofitting it to use as a chase. PolyPro is superior in performance and easier to install than PVC or CPVC pipe, which were designed for irrigation, not venting. PolyPro has been successfully venting appliances in Europe for over 15 years.
