TRV4 – Three Decades Of Elegant Design

The fourth incarnation of Drayton’s TRV, the original TRV4 Classic was first launched almost three decades ago in 1992. The sleek and minimalist design became a favourite with homeowners for its looks, and with installers for its ease of installation. Since then, Drayton has expanded the range to include the TRV4 Chrome in 2002 and TRV4 White in 2013.Drayton_trv4_thermostatic_radiator_valves_anthraciteSince its launch 28 years ago, the Drayton TRV4 range has become one of Britain’s best-selling thermostatic radiator valves thanks to its iconic design and high-quality build. With its clean lines and compact size, it stands the test of time again and again both in aesthetics and durability.

The Installers’ Choice

Key features of the TRV4 include the range-limiting pins (allowing installers to set a restricted temperature range) and non-stick internal valves. The Drayton TRV4 makes it easy, cementing its position as preferred thermostatic radiator valve for installers across the UK.

  • ● Hidden air ventilation – sleek aesthetics and easy to keep clean
  • ● Non-stick valve internals
  • ● Easy-to-read numbering and click feedback
  • ● Includes temperature range limiting pins and chrome lockshield
  • ● A premium finish for premium radiators


TRV For Life

Reliability is intrinsic to the TRV4, and extra features and equipment ensure it’ll stand the test of time. Our handy Drayton balancing key, for balancing the system flow rate from the TRV itself, is available to buy from your local merchant (part no. 07 35 162), or claim one for free when you join The Drayton Community on Facebook. This multi-purpose tool can also be used to quickly and easily replace worn out gland seals in the TRV body, extending its lifespan.

The newest addition to the range is the TRV4 Anthracite, designed with a stylish matt finish that perfectly complements anthracite radiators, and is available to buy now from many local stockists.drayton_trv4_anthracite_trv_radiator_valveThe launch follows the rise in popularity of dark grey and anthracite radiators as homeowners place more importance on modern aesthetics, with decorative radiators like this now making up 22% of the market according to the AMA Domestic Central Heating Market Report UK 2018-2022.

Always Adapting, Always Innovating – It’s the Drayton Way

Remi Volpe, Managing Director at Drayton, commented: “Despite changing times, our highly efficient TRV4 range has remained one of the most popular choices amongst installers, with over half a million installed each year. Manufactured at our factory in Plymouth, the Drayton TRV4 allows heating engineers to provide their customers with accurate, reliable and efficient heating control in a range of different styles. As more homeowners look to incorporate anthracite radiators into their homes, it was important for us to ensure there was a style to complement these, which is why we’re excited to introduce the TRV4 Anthracite to the range.”

The NEW Drayton TRV4 Anthracite is available to buy now at Toolstation, City Plumbing Supplies, Grahams (in-store only), and for a limited time you can get a FREE Drayton TRV4 Anthracite and lockshield valve when you purchase selected radiators from Screwfix!
