Angled Valves are the most common style of valves. Angled Valves are best used when you have a radiator with connections on the side at the bottom (referred to as ‘BOE’ connections) and your pipe work is coming up from beneath, usually out from the floor. By using Angled Valves in this circumstance, you keep the head of the valve pointing up towards the ceiling and tucked neatly away by the side of the radiator, which is both the most visually pleasing option and the easiest to adjust. For pipework which comes out from the wall instead, we would recommend corner valves.
When using angled valves on the side of a radiator, remember that your pipework would want to be approximately 80mm-90mm wider than the radiator’s tappings depending on the exact valves used. To make sure there are no mistakes, be sure to order your valves first so your heating engineer can be certain.
Unsure which Valves you need?
To figure out which kind of valves you need you will need two key pieces of information.
Where is your pipework coming from? Your pipework for your radiator will either exit the wall of your room or the floor of your room.
Where are the pipe connections on your new radiator? The connections of your radiator will either be on the side or the underneath.
Once you have this information, we can easily determine which valves you need:
