Hi there,
Either type trv's will do, its personnel choice really, plus how and where the rads are fitted and the space available for rads and valves.

Hi there,
Either type of Trv's are able to fit with column radiators, it just depends on the current installation and whether or not you wish to change this installation to suit the room asthetically i.e pipe fixing etc.

you will require angled valves, usually TRV one side and locksheild on the other.
