Reliance Worldwide Corporation (RWC), a market leader and manufacturer of water control systems and plumbing solutions for residential and commercial applications, was named NAHB’s 2021 Leading Suppliers Council Spark Award Runner-up.

As homeowners lean into smart-home technology, RWC’s StreamLabs Control is delivering on a crucial need: water and leak management. Thanks to its innovative technology, the leak detection device was honored as runnerup for the 2021 National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Leading Suppliers Council (LSC) Spark Award.

As reported in Chubb’s 2017 Water Risk Survey, “[45%] of homeowners have or know someone who has experienced a water leak.” As an innovation-driven company, RWC saw an opportunity to help limit detrimental water damage with just a tap. Designed to track water usage, alert users of leaks and provide an automatic remote shut-off option, the StreamLabs Control, which installs directly into the main water line, connects to the complementary StreamLabs app to monitor the home’s water system 24/7.

It is the second product in RWC’s portfolio to be recognized by the LSC. The SharkBite EvoPEX push-to-connect system won the Spark Award in 2018.

According to the NAHB LSC Spark Award criteria, “winners are to demonstrate superior knowledge in developing cutting edge products and services, embrace a progressive outlook and exhibit a willingness to push the envelope when it comes to taking the home building industry to the next level.”

“We always seek new ways to innovate and create cutting edge products for customers,” said Jeff Long, RWC’s Product Manager Cash Acme & StreamLabs. “We’re extremely proud the StreamLabs Control has been recognized in such prestigious company. It is a great product, providing homeowners comfort and peace of mind that their homes are looked after.”

With the introduction of the HoldRite 703 In-Slab Tubing Support, HoldRite HydroFlame Large Diameter and 5-inch Firestop Sleeves, as well as improved HoldRite HydroFlame Pro Tub Boxes, RWC continues to bring efficiency and innovation to new construction. 

Atlanta — Reliance Worldwide Corporation (RWC), a leading manufacturer of premium branded push-to-connect plumbing products, valves, secondary pipe supports, firestopping solutions and fluid control technologies, is reinforcing its position as a trusted source for firestopping and in-slab plumbing products with the introduction of several new patent pending HoldRite HydroFlame firestopping products, as well as the new patent pending HoldRite 703 In-slab Tubing Support.

With these additions to the HoldRite portfolio, RWC is investing in innovations to create efficient and cost-effective solutions.

  • HoldRite 703 In-Slab Tubing Support, Enhanced HoldRite HydroFlame Pro Tub Boxes, HoldRite HydroFlame Pro 5-inch Sleeve, HoldRite HydroFlame Large Diameter SleevesHoldRite 703 In-Slab Tubing Support: A one-of a kind stub-up PEX and conduit support, this product helps prevent the common issue of in-slab tubing damage on the job site. Designed to accept 1/2-inch PEX tubing with 3/4-inch protective smurf tubing or 3/4-inch conduit, the support provides a protective recessed cavity in the upper portion of the concrete floor, allowing space for the protection of one to two 1/2-inch PEX tubes or 3/4-inch conduit.

 

  • HoldRite 703 In-Slab Tubing Support, Enhanced HoldRite HydroFlame Pro Tub Boxes, HoldRite HydroFlame Pro 5-inch Sleeve, HoldRite HydroFlame Large Diameter SleevesHoldRite HydroFlame Large Diameter Sleeves: With 8-inch,10-inch and 12-inch options, these large diameter sleeves are available in standard and hollow versions for use with metal, insulated and plastic pipe penetrations. HoldRite is the only manufacturer currently offering a 12-inch option, a 1-inch stackable extension — which can serve as a water dam when two are installed together after concrete is poured — and an OSHA-compliant 3-hour fire rated safety cap.

 

  • HoldRite 703 In-Slab Tubing Support, Enhanced HoldRite HydroFlame Pro Tub Boxes, HoldRite HydroFlame Pro 5-inch Sleeve, HoldRite HydroFlame Large Diameter SleevesHoldRite HydroFlame Pro 5-inch Sleeve: Included as an extension to the Pro series line-up is the addition of a 5-inch sleeve. This new base will come with an adjustable cap, allowing contractors to adjust the height of the sleeve from 7¼-inch to 8-inch without having to make a cut. The cap features locator whiskers to make locating the firestop device easier after concrete has been poured.

 

 

  • HoldRite 703 In-Slab Tubing Support, Enhanced HoldRite HydroFlame Pro Tub Boxes, HoldRite HydroFlame Pro 5-inch Sleeve, HoldRite HydroFlame Large Diameter SleevesEnhanced HoldRite HydroFlame Pro Tub Boxes: With two new knock-out positions, HoldRite’s tub box offers more flexibility to contractors when laying out a tub and drain. Where the previous model was only compatible with 2-inch firestopping sleeves, this model is compatible with 2-inch and 3-inch sleeves.

With the addition of the new products, RWC extends its track record of successfully solving challenges for contractors.

Preventing costly repairs and job delays
Typically, after concrete is poured, PEX and conduit tubing stub-ups are at risk of damage. To prevent costly repairs and job delays, RWC created the HoldRite 703 In-slab Tubing Support to help protect PEX and conduit in concrete, making stub-up plumbing and electrical installations easier. It also includes a protective cover plate and the HoldRite patented locator whiskers, providing a simple and faster way to find buried tubing after a concrete pour.

New innovations in firestopping needs
Since the introduction of the HoldRite HydroFlame Pro Series sleeves, RWC has continued to advance category growth to create complete firestopping solutions. The sleeves’ patented telescoping design eliminates cutting on the job site, and the patented locator whiskers take the hassle out of finding buried sleeves after a concrete pour. In addition to protecting against the spread of fire, smoke and gases, the sleeves also have a built-in W-rated water seal to prevent unwanted water intrusion.

Additionally, changes were made to the HydroFlame Pro Tub Box, which is intended to encompass a broader range of exotic drain and tub designs. Thanks to its new knock-out positions, there is no need for extensions, couplers or field modification positions. In this model, there is more flexibility available to the contractor when laying out the tub and drain. This provides more annular space for tight fits when layouts and spacing become an issue.

“Customers know and embrace the value and advantages of using HoldRite’s HydroFlame products for tubing support and firestopping needs,” said Jeff Hamilton, RWC’s HoldRite HydroFlame Product Manager. “We are constantly brainstorming to optimize products and bring forth new solutions that enable better ways of working to the market.”
