In the pursuit of creating the perfect shower experience, understanding the various types of shower valves and controls is essential.

At Tapron UK, we offer an extensive selection of shower valves and controls designed to meet every need and preference, from concealed thermostatic valves to exposed mixer valves and multifunctional bar valves.

This guide will help you navigate through our collection, ensuring you make an informed choice for your bathroom.

Understanding Shower Valves

Shower valves are not just about controlling water temperature; they're about enhancing your showering experience, ensuring safety, and adding a touch of elegance to your bathroom. Let's explore the options available at Tapron UK.

Concealed Thermostatic Shower Valves

Concealed thermostatic valves are designed for a sleek, minimalistic look, with the working parts hidden within the wall. These valves maintain your desired water temperature precisely, regardless of any changes in the water supply, ensuring a safe and comfortable shower every time.

Exposed Shower Mixer Valves

For those who prefer a classic or industrial aesthetic, exposed shower mixer valves are a great choice. These units combine hot and cold water supplies into one pipe that sits externally on the wall, offering easy installation and maintenance.

Bar Shower Valves

Bar valves are a popular choice for their ease of use and modern appearance. These valves mount directly onto the wall and feature separate controls for temperature and flow, making them user-friendly and stylish.

Choosing the Right Number of Outlets

The number of outlets on your shower valve determines how many shower components can be operated simultaneously. Tapron UK offers valves with different outlet options to suit various setups.

1 Outlet Shower Valves

Perfect for simple shower setups, 1 outlet valves control a single component, such as a fixed showerhead or a hand shower.

2 Outlet Shower Valves

These valves allow you to operate two shower components – for example, a fixed showerhead and a hand shower – either separately or simultaneously for a more versatile showering experience.

3 Outlet Shower Valves

For the ultimate in luxury and flexibility, 3 outlet valves can control multiple components, such as a fixed head, a hand shower, and body jets, offering a fully customizable showering experience.

Enhancing Your Shower with Sets

For a coordinated look and optimized functionality, consider our Concealed Shower Sets. These sets include a concealed valve along with a matching showerhead and other components, ensuring everything works together seamlessly for an indulgent shower experience.


Choosing the right shower valve and controls can transform your daily shower from a routine task into a luxurious escape. With Tapron UK's wide selection of quality shower valves and controls, finding the perfect match for your bathroom has never been easier.
