Hi. What valves will I need for this? My towel radiators will be hung on the wall with the pipes sticking out from the wall. Thanks

Anton Grant

Hi Will

Sounds like you will need a dual fuel conversion kit – for the configuration you suggest (pipes from the wall) you’ll need angled valves – I’d suggest our integrated Dual Fuel valves with this Thermostatic heating element which come together in Dual Fuel Towel Rail Conversion Kit B.

I hope that helps
