For any radiator, you will need two valves. Our valves are sold in pairs – one valve is the temperature control while the other one is used to help balance the system and it’s called a lock shield.
You will have to decide between manual and thermostatic valves. Both types offer the same control over the heating. Read below for more details on differences between them. If you feel like the information provided was not enough, feel free to contact us.
Manual valves act like simple taps that control the flow of hot water into the radiator, determining how hot the radiator gets. Manual valves require physical action from your part, to turn heat up or down. An advantage of manual valves is that they are smaller and more discreet than thermostatic ones.
Thermostatic radiator valves have a built-in temperature sensor. These help maintain the room temperature constant, by automatically adjusting the heat output from the radiator.
Thermostatic valves are preferred as they help on money saving and prevent energy wasting by overheating a room. The valves ensure the radiator performs as efficiently as possible, taking into notice the exterior heating sources such as the sun or other running electrical appliances.
Radiators are usually positioned in the coldest part of the room, against an outside wall or under a window, where the cold air drops to the floor, ensuring air circulation. However, you can choose where you want your radiators to be positioned, according to the overall design of the room.
Our radiators are compatible with normal central heating systems with the standard fittings. If you already have a central heating system set up, you can choose to replace all the radiators or just some of them.
We recommend asking a competent plumber or heating engineer to install your radiators.
