When you need a new radiator valve in a hurry, Trade Radiators can help. We have valves and 8mm reducers available for any style of radiator, no matter what the setup is.
With our valves coming in a range of finishes, they’ll compliment the design of any radiator, whether you have a sleek anthracite flat panel radiator in your kitchen or a traditional white convector single panel radiator in your bedroom.
How Do I Know if I Need an 8mm Radiator Valve?
It is really important to know that you can’t actually buy an 8mm radiator valve outright.
All valves have a universal standard thread of 15mm. When we talk about a valve being 8mm, we’re talking about reducers you attach on to a valve for it to work correctly.
So all Radiators Actually Need 15mm Valves?
No. The reason you would need an 8mm radiator valve reducer will most commonly be because of pipework. Many newer buildings will have thinner pipes to save on costs and materials.
So, while your radiator will always have a 15mm entry, it won’t work if your intake pipe is 8mm. That’s where reducers come in to play.
What do 8mm Radiators Reducers do?
Reducers ensure that the connection from pipe to radiator is clean and sound. It simply takes what would be a 7mm difference and reduces that entry point from your pipes through your valve to your radiator.
When Would I Need an 8mm Radiator Valve?
Some factors will include:
- Your radiator type
- The pipe size
- The angle of your pipes
Why Choose an 8mm Radiator Valve Reducer?
You’ll need a reducer if you have 8mm pipes in your room. It’s a simple solution for an efficient heating system rather than having to carry out costly pipework just to get connected.
What Radiators Look Best with 8mm Valves?
Luckily we provide reducers with a wide selection of our valves. It is possible to get a valve and 8mm reducer in the following finishes:
- Black Nickel
- Jet Black
Straight and Cornered 8mm Radiator Valves
Reducers sit in between the valve and pipe, so there’s no need to worry about whether it affects your valve. If you don’t have a traditional corner/angled connection, you’ll want to take a look at our range of straight radiator valves.
