What is a Satin Radiator Valve?
Satin radiator valves are brass or copper valves that have been coated in a satin metallic finish to help them look just like stainless steel or provide a sleek metallic finish to compliment a radiator.
Like the majority of pipes in your home, most radiator valves are made from brass. Brass valves don’t always match the look you’re going for with a new radiator and can look out of place.
Why Aren’t Valves Made From Stainless Steel?
Stainless steel is a very expensive metal to work. This would mean that steel valves would be expensive too and seen as too much for a product carrying out a simple function.
Are There Any Advantages to Using Satin Radiator Valves?
The clear advantage is cost. Brushing a valve in a satin finish provides the same look as steel on a much cheaper budget; which in turn is passed on to the customer.
Another advantage comes from the brass used. Brass is a hard-wearing metal and doesn’t easily corrode, meaning it will last longer than valves made from other materials.
Because satin is a brushed finish, we can apply it to different styles of a valve to help fit the majority of radiator installations.
How Do I Know What Satin Valve to Buy?
The most important factor will be the location. You’ll need to know first if you need a straight, angled or corner radiator valve. Straight valves are used when your pipe goes straight from the floor to your intake; angled valves are when you need a right angle for your intake from the floor, and cornered valves are used when pipe comes out horizontally from a wall.
What Style Satin Valve Can I Get?
We have valves to match a wide range of radiator styles. You can get a satin valve in styles such as:
- Minimalist with a manual valve
- Traditional with tap top
- Square with block top
- Balmoral with an umbrella top
- Belgravia with ornate wooden handle
What Radiators Suit Satin Valves Best?
Satin valves are ideally suited to radiators with a metallic or matte finish. Products like our silver towel rails and lacquered metal column radiators look fantastic with a satin valve.
And while white doesn’t traditionally go with a satin finish, if you have similarly coloured pipes or your fixtures have a satin finish, a thermostatic satin finish valve works with most radiators.
