The Faringdon radiator valve is a traditional thermostatic valve. It has some excellent features, like the real wood wheel head, top grade material brass and high quality polish to ensure it stands apart from its contemporaries. Thermostatic valves allow you to alter the temperature of your room easily by pre-selecting your desired temperature and letting the radiator automatically achieve the correct heat output. The range has a choice of desirable finishes that mean you can match your valve perfectly to your radiator.

We recommend all TRV's are installed on the flow, rather than the return pipework of a radiator. When used in conjunction with a system automatic bypass valve, this thermostatic valve can be installed on either the flow or return in any orientation. System automatic bypass valves are a specific building regulation requirement for all new installations and boiler upgrades. All bi-directional TRV's from any manufacturer require the bypass valve to function correctly and thus avoid radiator hammer.
Two questions: is the price for a pair of valves ie the TRV and a matching lockshield? l need a valve to fit in place of a 15mm compression elbow, are both ends of the TRV and lockshield the correct size to fit onto the nuts from the 15mm elbow?
Firstly yes the price is for the valve and lock shield.
The lock shield and the valve body are the same size. For the bottom of the valve inlet you can't use the elbow nut so you will need to remove the existing nut and use the one provided.The outlet/coupler arm can accept the existing nut on the end but it is not designed to compress an olive, it may be possible to achieve a seal with PTFE tape.
We do think the valve body is likely to be considerably larger than the existing elbow body and so space may be an issue.
We would recommend using our Realm valve for this type of replacement
