Towel rails are great replacement in any modern bathrooms, cloakrooms, en-suites or kitchens. Compared to panel radiators, towel rails provide easy space for hanging towels and create modern looking bathrooms. Heated towel rail radiators (HTR for short ) will dry and warm your towels as well as heat the room. Heated Towel Rails will prevent bacteria built in damp towels and bad smell.
Inhibitor is a must in all central heating systems these days. Inhibitors will keep your central heating system corrosion and sludge free. Central Heating systems without inhibitor will develop sludge and corrosion over the time.
We recommend warm water and polishing clothfor cleaning your towel rail. Cleaning solutions / agents may contain strong chemicals and strip chrome plating or discolour your white or black towel rail radiator.
The space between the central heating pipes or towel rail valve inlets are pipe centre.
The space between centre points of the valve / pipe inlets called pipe centre. It is also same for your central heating pipes as well. To find your correct replacement radiator you will need to find your pipe centre and choose it accordingly. We do stock many different size width towel rails starting from 160mm pipe centre ( 200mm wide towel rail radiators )
Selecting your valves for central heating connection can be confusing. We did create a short video which explains the angled and straight inline valve connection on standard ladder type towel rails ( Youtube Video Link )
If you have cold areas on your towel rail it means there is air trapped / gap inside. The best practice is closing one of the central heating valve and bleed the towel rail from bleeding valve. After your towel rail bleed you need to open the closed valve. You may need to do this more than once on all your central heating connected radiators.
Dual fuel setup is central heating as well as electric use towel rail radiator. You use central heating in the winter and electric in the summer days when your central heating is off. You need to close one of the central hating valve off in summer days for electric use only.
Your electric only towel rail requires a assembly. Element and towel rail will be packed separately to avoid any damage in transit. You will need to remove the blanking plug off from the desired side ( at the bottom ) and screw the element in.
This is extremely dangerous and not recommended. If element installed upside down at the top of the towel rail, element will over heat itself and may cause fire. Also will not heat your towel rail at all. Please do not try this at all!
Thermostatic elements will control and maintain your desired temperature. There is a temperature sensor and thermostatic controller within the element. Thermostatic towel rail radiator elements will sense only towel rail internal temperature not the room temperature.
You need to select the wattage of the element carefully. If you install less wattage than you need; your towel rail will not heat and if you install more than your towel rail needs; your element will burn out soon. Ideally you need to install min 50% of your towel rail heat output ( wattage rating ) and max 90%. Please feel free to contact us if you will need any assistance.
