Throughout Europe and probably the best part of the world British Standard Pipe threads are the norm. So where ever you buy your valves they will screw into the rads, they are 1/2" (and verry rarely these days, 3/4") BSP thread but the French use mm but the thread is the same. The copper connection on the valve (if you are using copper tube) will not be the same as UK, the likelyhood is that you will use 14mm ext diameter tube to the valves.

How do you arrive at that decision jbc?
The OP has been directed towards Brico Depot (a French Co) and he/she has looked on their site to find that the prices are reasonable. The OP then asks if UK valves will fit them and I have confirmed that they will.

So why post:

Thanks everyone for the info, the reason I ask is that we have already installed some uk purchased rads using 15mm and will need to retro the french pipe sizes. Just needed to know if I needed to bring over more uk rads or if they are available here.

Thanks again

Although My property is in the Somme, the temperature does drop to minus 15, therefore I have used an anti freeze / corrosion inhibitor in my log fuelled boiler. This is manufactured by Fernox in the UK. It has seen the last 2 winters without any problems to rediators or pipework.
