This distinctive design is 550mm in width and can dry 2 bath towels, ideal for a smaller bathroom. The rail is a round design with thinner horizontal bars that cross over the side posts. A built-in manual switch provides on/off functionality.
Dry towels mean less bacteria. Our heated towel rails are designed specifically for this purpose. Using the technology of Rapid Heating, our rails reach optimum drying temperature within 10 to 15 minutes and towels dry within 4 to 5 hours when folded into four layers, trapping the heat underneath the towels, resulting in 90% less bacterial build up. The energy usage of this rail is 75 watts. Less laundry washes, more savings.
Towel Holding Capacity: This model has the capacity to dry 2 x folded bath sheets.

Built-In Controller: The discreetly built-in PTSelect (Personal Temperature Selection) Switch will enable you to switch the heated towel rail on and off as well as adjust the temperature to suite your personal heat preference.
Electrical Wiring: This electric towel rail is hardwired and the electrical connection must be completed by an electrician. This product has a Dual-Entry electrical connection which means it has both LEFT and RIGHT electrical connections, and can be connected to any of the two sides straight out of the box to better suit your electrical point.
Material: Grade 304 Stainless Steel
Stainless Steel has a natural resistance to corrosion and therefore does not require a protective coating which makes this product ideal for the bathroom environment. The shiny polished Stainless Steel finish is often confused with a Chrome finish, however the two could not be more different. While stainless steel will not peel or flake, chrome products on the other hand are susceptible to chipping and pitting due to the nature of a coated surface.
Cleaning and Care: To keep the product in pristine condition, simply wipe it down with a warm damp cloth and then buff dry with a microfiber cloth. You could also on occasion, use a Chlorine-free stainless steel cleaner to maintain the gorgeous shine. If you use a stainless steel polish, make sure it is abrasive free. When cleaning wall surfaces around your heated towel rail make sure not to use any household detergents that contain Chlorine-based chemicals such as bleach, this will cause permanent damage to the surface of the stainless steel.
