Danfoss RAS-DÂ² Chrome TRV 8/10/15mm Angled & L/S
Danfoss RAS-d2 Chrome TRV
Considering the cost, screw threads appear very cheap and rough, not the quality product I was expecting from a name like Danfoss.

Very smart valve
The valve looks very good and fits very well with my silver radiator. It seems to work very well so far. I'm very pleased with this product.

Look great and work great
Danfoss trv's are great valves i've been fitting them for years now and only had two call backs that I remember.

Trying to find a decent looking TRV and lockshield to purchase on the same day isn't easy. This, in my opinion, was the best looking one to go with the Oceanus anthracite radiator I had bought (had also looked in the typical DIY stores but found nothing better).
I have a Drayton "chrome" TRV on the bathroom towel rail/radiator and I think the Danfoss doesn't feel as plasticy, though still not as high a quality finish as you would like. Chrome, chrome plated, chrome finish suggests a better quality than shiny looking plastic which is more the reality of these products.
I puzzled over the (required) 8mm reducer as there were no fitting instructions regarding its use. Turns out you just put the reducer over the pipe and tighten up. The reducer then gets compressed round the pipe and separates into 2 parts acting as an olive and reducing bush. I only know this cos I trialled it on a spare section of pipe. Was then a pain to get off and fit to the rad flow pipe.....
I have had no issues and obtained a water tight seal on the first fitting, so far so good.
The valve selector is good and I have fitted the TRV to the return pipe as opposed to the old valve which was on the flow. Nice option to have.
A bit more expensive than some of the other options available and for that I agree that a better finish should be expected.
