Specifically designed to install between studs, and able to mount with the supply line from the top or bottom, this kit includes a white rough in box and frame in your choice of ABS or fire-retardant resin, an 18' 18-gauge galvanized steel support bracket, and a quarter turn gas valve suitable for either natural gas or propane.
Concerned that unlike other mixer valves, bar mixers appear to have no wall fixing, but rely on the pipework to hold them in position. Can this be a potential problem? We are about to put our shower room renovation out to tender, and need to think about which type of mixer valve we would like. Our pipework can be buried in the wall, or (stainless) surface mounted. We don't mind which.9
bar mixers tend to not have a wall plate or a fix to the wall, they tend to just screw to a 3/4 male connection which secures it.2012-01-11T11:05:02+00:00

Yes both methods of pipe work can be used for a bar mixer,some types of mixer eg some miras have fixing plate also! but i reccommend surface chrome pipe work, easy,quicker,and looks nice if done well! the model needs to be able to have surface pipe work, but some have a kit,or a back plate option.. consult a decent plumbs!

Best left to an experienced fitter but there are two ways I know of fitting these valves
1/a manifold is fitted the pipes conect to this, boarding and tiling completed then the valve fitted to the manifold.
2/(the way I do it)Fix a pair of backplate elbows at 150mm centre, complete board and tiling then fit the valve to the backplate elbows.
The measurments and deapth of centres and fittings are critical hence best left to an experienced fitter.
Hope this helps-Kevin.2012-01-11T11:05:02+00:00

Your best option is to use a recessed wall mounting kit . this allows the pipe work to be connected to the fixing bracket then made good and then tiled leaving two chrome plated threads sticking out use the cover plates supplied attach bar shower using the rubber washers supplied tight up job done

Your thoughts are just the same as mine ,as an installer i dont like fitting them, because if someone slips in the shower it becomes a grab rail, and your thoughts are correct but they now do a fixing kit .Never tried it.2012-01-11T11:05:02+00:00

I have fitted many of these type of bar mixer valves and you are right it is a little daunting that they are held in place by only the pipe-work !
A solution I have found is to either
1 To fix a surface mounted chrome fixing plate on the finished wall.
These are available for £ 20.00 from Tool Station. They have the standard
150mm centers. A simple highly polished chrome plate with thre chrome
fixing screws. (Fitted on the finished wall surface). 15mm compression
to the rear, and 3/4' male fittings to the front to accept the female
shower swivel fittings.
2 Bristan, (available from any decent plumbers merchant), produce an
interesting product, which I fitted today ! cost circa £ 25.00
These are two seperate brass mounting plates, again that are
fitted to the finished wall surface. The 15mm pipe-work is left
protruding from the wal at the correct centres prior to plasreing.
The mounting plates are placed over the pipes, secured by an olive
and a special 'bridging' fitting.
This fitting secures the inlet pipe-work, allows a round chrome
cowel, to be screwed over and again has the 3/4' male thread to
accept the bar mixer female fittings.
Hope this is of some help

Hi my name is Mark,
In answer to your question.
Yes the pipe work can old the mixer, then the collars tighten up to your tile work clamping the mixer valve in place.
Alternatively there are wall brackets sold separately which are fitted then tiled over.
