What does a 10mm radiator valve mean?
It is an industry-wide standard for the size of the threading a radiator intake will have from its valve (i.e. the diameter of the hole). A universal size means every radiator, in theory, can fit in any installation across the country. The problem that arises when we talk about 10mm valves is from pipe setup. Why would my system have 10mm pipes?
