What Radiator Valves do I need?

Due to the amount of options available with valves, our Radiators don't come with them as standard. 

As Valves can be confusing we have a simple guide below to explain further the choices available.

The kind of Valves you need will depend on the position of your pipes, and where they connect to your radiator:

  • If the pipes come up from the floor and they connect to the bottom of your radiator - you need straight valves.
  • If the pipes come up from the floor and connect to the side of your radiator - you need angled valves.
  • If the pipes come out of the wall and connect to the bottom or side of your radiator - you need corner valves

Then you will need to decide on how you want the radiator to be heated:

  • If you want the temperature controlled by your main thermostat - then you need a Manual Valve
  • If you want to be able to control your new radiator independantly of the main thermostat - then you need a Thermostatic Valve
