These valves have a 1/2" BSP radiator connection and so will fit all radiators and Towel Rails in the Russia and Germany. The other connection to consider is that of your pipework, these valves have a 15mm pipework connection and so will fit pipework of the same size. We have these valves available in 8mm and 10mm for those with microbore pipework.
Straight valves are the ideal valve for older homes built before the modern home building styles of today. These are a simple but true saviour to bring older homes into the modern era, and not to be underestimated. Straight valves are used in the following set ups:
Pipework comes from the floorboard up to the radiator, and the radiator connection is on the bottom.
Pipework that runs along the wall or skirting board and the radiator has connections at the side.
Pipework comes out from the wall and bends up and the radiator connection is on the bottom.
Pipework comes out from the wall and bends round and the radiator has connections at the side.
All of our straight radiator valves come with matching lockshield valves to be fitted on the return side of the radiator or Towel Rail.
Thermostatic radiator valves, otherwise known as TRVs, provide multi temperature control of the radiators in your home – saving energy and money! These valves have liquid sensor mechanisms inside that shut off the flow of hot water to the radiator when the room temperature reached the desired level (which you set using the number dial on the TRV head). All of our Thermostatic radiator valves come with frost protection mode, which automatically opens the valve a little bit, even when fully switched off if the temperature of the room drops below a certain level – preventing your heating system, radiator and pipe from damage caused by frozen water.
A shiny polished chrome valve with just a touch of matt black. Ideal for modern décor and best matched with black radiators in rooms that have other chrome fixtures and fittings or maybe pair with a chrome Towel Rail in a black toned bathroom.
Don’t forget to add some matching pipe covers to your basket to complete the overall look and hide unsightly pipework!
Modern radiator valves offer sleek style to suit new and existing radiators in homes with modern décor.
