valves should ideally remain outside of radiator cover if they are
to sense the temperature of the room correctly.
If you would like to keep the thermostatic valve outside of
the radiator cover, the side of the cover that the valve is on
will need to fit between the radiator and the valve.
The width dimension to measure in this case, is that specified
by the arrow labelled "width if thermostatic
When fitting, you will need to make a small cut in the cover to receive the pipe between the
radiator and the valve.
If there is not at least 20mm clearance between the
radiator and the thermostatic valve, you will not be able to
fit our radiator covers in this manner.
To allow you the choice of keeping your thermostatic valve
outside of our cover, you can choose a slim width plinth on
either or both sides of the cover. As there will be no plinth
at the side, the cover can slot between the radiator and the
thermostatic valve. This is only necessary on some models. For
example, you would not need to choose a slim width plinth for a
Contemporary cover as it does not have a protruding plinth.
Slim width tops and plinths are able to solve a number of
problems that may occur when fitting radiator covers. You may
wish to order slim width simply because you prefer the style.
