Two-Handle Shower Valve

I am replacing an old two-handle shower valve with something similar such as:
LINK TO EXAMPLE

Has anyone seen a similar valve product that has a anti-scald device in the middle? I know that would be atypical because the mixing device would be in the wall. In my case it's accessible via an access panel behind the wall.

I'm trying to avoid going to a single-handle as it's an old bathroom with original tile work (not to mention cost).

Thanks.

I prefer a two handle valve too. Is the anti scalding really needed? We took showers without those things for 50 years.

My water heater is set low enough that scalding is not a concern with hot unmixed water so I agree with you but if the product exists, I may as well buy it if I change temperature settings.

I should add two handle valves are against code in many states so any bathroom remodel would be forced to a one handle design.

You didn't mention code in your original post or if you wanted to follow it. To me, code is to be followed if an insurance claim needs to be filed in the future. Otherwise, I don't care about it.
