Towel Rail Type Guide

Heated chrome towel rails are fast becoming an important element in every bathroom through the UK. You will discover heated towel rails in every good hotel, in most modern-day B&Bs; plus countless new build homes. So what is with the craze? Well, the towel rail has several good things going for it. First, its ideal for heating bath towels and far a lot better than using a traditional panel radiator.You do not need to concern yourself with balancing the shower towels on top of radiators as towel rails are purpose built for you to hold several bath towels in the spaces offered (normally at least two spaces to carry and heat towels). An excellent feature is you can find them in any height and width which means you could go for a large 1800mm high by 600mm wide towel rail if you have an abundance of space or you can go for a smaller 750 x 400 towel rail if you have a little bathroom with little free room. It is possible to acquire towel rails with widths between 400mm and 600mm and heights between 750mm and 1800mm.

Should you be looking for a towel rail, you must choose which kind of towel rail you intend to select. With ever increasing popularity, you can find ever increasing designs available. The main choices are generally chrome plated steel and also white coated steel. The chrome towel rails seem to be the most popular because everybody seems to like shiny things. Had you been a magpie, i’ m sure you’d go for a chrome towel rail. However, the less common white towel rails currently have some benefits over their polished counterparts: for just one, there’s no need to bother with polishing white towel rails because they aren’t magnets for fingerprints. Another good thing is that white towel rails may match in with a bath room decor until, you possess a chrome plated wc, sink, bath tub and bidet!? (Does anyone have that? Answers on a postcard)!

So if you are a magpie, you will choose a
chrome towel rail
but before you finish reading and fly over to purchase one now you need to look at the quality. You’ll find a low priced towel rail for under ?50 but there is however a likely answer why it is inexpensive – consider it… The chrome plating going on the steel rail is definitely an expensive process. There are several manufacturers around who will attempt to deliver the results with less nickel for example that is great if you’re after a value towel rail though the chrome finish isn’t likely to be as good as higher end towel rails. Furthermore, you should think about the tube diameter. Once again — less expensive towel rails will typically have 19mm tubes or 22mm tubes. Note that the tube diameter affects the amount liquid the rail can carry and thus, is going to change the BTU output. The most effective tube diameter available right now is 25mm. Top quality is hard to locate. 25mm is really a key indicator that you will be purchasing a really good towel rail!

There are other things you should consider as well. There’s two common types of towel rail: straight (aka flat) and curved. Flat towel rails have a flat profile so the towel rail will be parallel with the wall and curved towel rails have a bend so the middle of the towel rail is going to be further from the wall than the sides.

Tip: check the centre to centre of a curved towel rail and check that it’s got the identical centre to centre as a straight towel rail (many manufactures scrimp and grab the tubes from a straight towel rail and curve it to create a curved towel rail (that means when you buy say a 400mm towel rail – a curved towel rail would really be 10mm approximately short of 400mm). A curved towel rail created properly should have more steel than a straight towel rail to retain the exact same width.

Heat output is a factor if you utilize the towel rail as an alternative to a compact radiator to heat the toilet. If you do not understand how much BTU you must have to heat your bathroom, locate a “heat loss calculator” that when completed using your room dimensions, exterior walls, insulation type, window types and doors etc – will explain the required BTU you’ll need. Obviously, when you currently have a radiator in your bathroom and merely buying a towel rail as an add-on there’s no need to be concerned about this as any towel rail can heat your towels.
