TRV is plumber's shorthand for 'thermostatic radiator valve'. The thermostatic radiator valve part of this set is what controls the temperature of your radiator or heated towel rail. It is recommended to be fitted on the flow side (where the water flows into the radiator) and the lockshield is fitted on the return side (where the water flows out of the radiator).
The TRV is the larger of the two valves and has an ergonomic cylindrical control. Features 5 temperature settings including anti-freeze frost protection. Temperature level shows in graduated display with 'max' shown for highest heat setting and a snowflake icon shown for anti-freeze mode. Within the TRV is a liquid capsule that is the clever device that senses the temperature of the water quickly. Thermostatic radiator valves or TRV's as they are known, therefore act as thermostat control for your radiator.
