Rated 5 out of 5Â by Scruples Danfoss TRV Chrome Finished
Replacing the TRV's at home and this one was part of a bathroom refurbishment. The criteria for the selection was it had to be Danfoss - have used Danfoss TRV's before at home and commercially, never had any quality issues. It also need to be, in this instance, a chrome finish to match the taps and towel rail, valves, etc. The picture of the product look good but seeing the actual product this looks a really smart product. I bought the combi pack so this includes the lockshield valve as well. Includes fittings for smaller pipe connections up to 15mm so vary adaptable. This TRV has a flow direction selectable feature which can be used without disconnecting the TRV should there be an issue with noise - water hammer, not an issue in my case. Instructions provided were good and concise, packaging OK but a better protection to the chrome finish could have been better afforded for the price of the product. Listing in the Screwfix Catalogue could have identified if a combi pack or if white or chrome - combi pack & chrome / white can be deduced by the price but I had to get both packs out at the counter to be sure. This is a premium product, easily to install by professional or competent diy'er alike. Recommended if a smart looking installation required.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by millbarnowl Great looking valves
Having expected these valves to be metal and discovering they were plastic was a little disappointing for the premium price paid, but now they are fitted, I am glad I didn't go for a cheaper looking product as they look fabulous. Hopefully they will perform well, with a reliable manufacturer like Danfoss, and for something that is on view all the time, especially on towel radiators, they look classy and contemporary.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Bexcina watchout for the lockshield
had this product installed for 6 years I had to wind down both the TRV and the lockshield to isolate several RADs for some maintenance. Horrified to find on re-commissioning that the lockshields have leaked.
This has happened so far on 4 RADS
according to Danfoss this is because theres an internal O ring which corrodes over the years and cannot be replaced
the internet implies if you buy a lockshield with a 'glandnut', you stand a better chance of servicing it if something goes wrong
Whilst i'm not an expert, to me a lockshield is a fundamental part of RAD maintenance. it should be able to seal off the RAD then open it up again for many years. Afterall, if a TRV can be turned up and down and switch off and on without leaks why can't the lockshield be designed to do the same?

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Hoofmeister As good as it gets
You can't buy better than this its top quality, a bit pricey but once again you get what you pay for. If you fit cheapo valves in a bathroom expect trouble and a poor finish
