Danfoss RAS-DÂ² Chrome TRV 8/10/15mm Angled & L/S
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.

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?

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
