Saracen (TMV) Thermostatic mixing valves

Thermostatic Mixing Valves (TMV) by Saracen

TMV2 Valves from Saracen


Anti-scalding device - guarantees safe temperature at your taps.

Thermostatic Safety Valves are becoming necessary in the home and are under discussion with a view to making them law. They prevent accidental scalding and injury and fit discreetly under the bath or sink. The TMVA (Thermostatic Mixing Valve Association) has been working with many associations including the Child Accident Prevention Trust in order to make homes safer. Saracen Thermostatic Valves are a type 2 TMV and will effectively protect against hot water related injuries.

Thermostatic mixing valves (TMVs) are also known as thermostatic blending valves. They should not be confused with thermostatic control - as you might find on a shower valve. Thermostatic control will regulate water temperature, that is to say hold it at a stable temperature +/- 1 degree typically. A TMV prohibits water from passing through in excess of the temperature set on the valve. It is a temperature limiting device. Fitting or using a TMV will not provide thermostatic shower control. Whilst the resulting properties may be similar the control offered by these two types of valve is entirely different.
