Heated Towel Rails

We offer a great range of heated towel rails suitable for central heating systems and electric elements systems. All our rails come in a choice of styles to suit your bathroom and heating requirements.

With next day delivery on our heated towel rails if ordered before 2.00pm we can have the towel rail at your door the very next day. Our radiators are individually pressure tested and can be accompanied perfectly with a set of our quality brass radiator valves. As with all our products you are guaranteed a comprehensive warrantly.

Replacing An Existing Heated Towel Rail
To replace an existing rail, the easiest thing you can do is find a rail which has the same pipe centres as your old rail. This means that you can simply swap the old rail for your new rail without having to adjust any pipe work. You may, however have to replace the existing wall mounts as they could well be in a different position to your old rail. This, however should be pretty straight forward and any unwanted screw holes can easily be filled and painted to match your tiles. Once your new rail is fitted you won't be able to see they ever existed.

Take care never to attempt replacement when your system is heated as this could lead to a nasty burn. Ideally you should drain your central heating system although many plumbers will quickly remove the old rail and temporarily blank off the pipework, this makes the job easier as you don't have to balance your central heating system again afterwards. As with everything if you are unsure then please contact a professional plumber for advice or to get him to do the switch over for you.

Accomodating your pipework for a different size towel rail:
If your new radiator has different pipe centres than your existing towel rail then you will have to adjust your pipework accordingly, depending on the adjustment you need to make you could add an elbow to one pipe to bring the distance up or down and from there you should be able to create the correct spacing. Some people may not like this approach and find it messy and therefore prefer to take back and make new some of the existing pipework. This may require removing some of the floor or wall tiles and thus will involve more work however will provide a much tidier installation.

Once your old rail is removed, clean the pipe ends taking care not to allow any debris to fall into the pipe itself and potentially harming your central heating system. You are now ready to unbox your new towel rail and begin to prepare the wall mounts. Install the rail as per the specific instructions included in the box. Once your radiator is connected to the valves you can fill it by opening the valves and bleeding any air out of the system using the supplied bleed valve. While bleeding the valve hold a cloth under the valve to catch any water should it escape.

Bleeding Your Towel Radiator

The following are general instructions on how to bleed your bathroom radiator, this procedure may differ slightly from your own radiator so please consult any documentation that came with your product when carrying out this procedure.

Your bathroom radiator is more or less the same as any other radiator in your house, apart from the fact that your bathroom radiator will be more than likely chrome finished which helps them blend in (or even stand out) in your bathroom. Because of this chrome finish you need to be especially careful when bleeding the heated towel rail.

The first thing you need to do is make sure your heating system is off and the radiator is cool - this is essential for basic safety as the water in your central heating system can burn. You will also need to place a towel under the radiator to catch any water which may drip onto the fllor. There should only be a small amount of water escaping but it is best to be safe.

Your bleed valve is usually at the top of the rail and is a five sided screw (again this may vary slightly depending on your actual rail). Slowly turn the screw anti-clockwise and if there is air trapped in the rail you will hear a hiss as it is relieved. Be careful only to open the valve ever so slightly you do not want to undo it completely. After the air is expelled you will see water begin to bubble out of the bleed valve, when this happends the radiator is bled sufficiently and you should close the valve by turning clockwise. Clear up any dribbles and polish the rail if necessary.
