Announcing the New Fireman Commander Tubing Unwinder/Uncoiler

We are proud to announce a new product to our line of Radiant Floor installation tools. The new Fireman Commander Tubing Unwinder. This is an extremely efficient solution to tubing handling and uncoiling.

When you cut the bands on a PEX tubing coil, it is like a snake. It has a mind of its own and requires a person dedicated to "wrangling" the tubing during installation. And if your coils are of longer lengths, 500 ft. and 1000 ft., there is significant risk of kinking the tubing which then needs to be repaired and can significantly slow you down.

A Tubing Unwinder keeps the tubing "caged" and manageable. It uncoils the tubing which takes the set out of it and makes for a flatter more professional looking installation. You will also find one man can do an installation with little problem or your installation will go significantly faster.

Fireman Tools has come out with a remarkably rugged yet light uncoiler. This tool will handle up to the heaviest tubing coils making for an affordable solution for most residential and light commercial jobs. It is extremely well priced for purchase for contractors as well as rentals for the first time do-it-yourselfer.
