Prior to installation
Check that all of the parts are enclosed as per the contents list.
If there are any missing or damaged parts please contact us immediately.
The four plastic caps on each corner of the ladder rail should be removed and disposed of.
Ensure that the ladder rail is positioned so that it can be easily connected to the central heating.
1. Select your desired installation position and ensure that the wall is sufficiently strong enough to hold the weight of the ladder rail. Brick or breezeblock walls are ideal. If positioning on plasterboard wall it MUST be fixed to timber batons.
2. Screw the blanking plug B and air vent plug C into the top two threads in the upright channels of the ladder rail A. They can be fitted on either side. Using a cloth to prevent scratching tighten with a spanner. Apply PTEE tape.

3. Thread the tails from the radiator valves (not supplied) into the bottom two threads. Apply PTFE tape.

4. The wall supports should be fitted at approximately 10cms from the insde edge of the ladder rail - 2 near the top of the ladder rail and 2 near the bottom. The mounting height can be varied between any of the ladder rail bars to allow for finding the best fixing point on the wall. Mark the fixing points with a pencil.

5. Mounting to Brick or Breezeblock.
At the required fixing positions drill hole using 8mm masonry bit and insert the wall plug E into the hold ensuring it's flush with the wall. PLace long screw F through the centre of the wall support D and tighten into the wall plug.

Mounting to Wood
Place the long screw F through the centre of the wall support D and screw into the wooden baton at the required fixing positions.

6. Place the spacer H inside the wall support and insert the small screw G into the hole in the wall support. Don't over tighten to allow for adjustment later.

7. Offer the ladder rail A up to the fixing brackets and place bolt J through the bracket bush K.

Place the bolt between the scheduled ladder rail bars and thread into the wall support ensuring the square face of the bracket brush is aligned with the ladder rail.

8. Push the rail flat against the wal, adjust to required depth and tighten teh small screws to secure. Push teh end caps I over each of the brack heads until they click into position.

9. Connect the radiator valve tail to the radiator valve and tighten securely. Apply PTEE tape.

Ensure that your central heating system is thoroughly flushed before use to rinse out and foreign residues.

Wipe the surface clean with a soft, damp cloth. Never use abrasive cleaners on this product as they will damage the surface.

It is recommended that a suitable inhibitor be added to the central heating system to prevent internal corrosion and limescale build up.

Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Which type of radiator valves do I require for my heated towel rail?
Answer: The type of valves you need depends on the location of the pipes connecting to the radiator. If the pipe work comes out of the floor you will require a pair of straight valves. If the pipework comes out of the wall then you will need a pair of angled valves. 
Question: How do I install my heated towel rail to my central heating system?
Answer: Heated towel rails are fitting by using brackets to connect to the wall and radiator valves. The four brackets supplied with all our towel rails are used to fix the radiator onto the wall. The two entry points at the bottom of the heated towel rail are used to connect the radiator to the pipe work. The third entry point on the top is inserted with a small nut commonly known as an "air vent" or "bleed valve" The purpose of the air vent or bleed valve is to let trapped air out of the radiator. Like the fixing brackets all our of rails come complete with bleed valves.
Question: I am in a rush for my heated towel rail, how quickly can you deliver?
Answer: Both Aquaheat and Heatwise towel rails are in stock at our main warehouse. Standard delivery is within 5 working days but for only a small surcharge if you order before 2pm you can chose the option for next working day delivery.
Question: Can I replace my ordinary radiator with a towel radiator
Answer: Yes it is possible to replace your conventional radiator with a heated towel radiator as they both work the same. Hot water enters one side of the heated towel rail or radiator from one side, travels through it and exits from the other side.
Question: What is a BTU?
Answer: BTU is an abbreviation for British Thermal Unit, which is the British standard unit of energy. BTU is the heating measure which determines the heat output from the heated towel rail.
Question: What is the distance between the wall and the heated towel rail?
Answer: The distance between the wall and the heated towel rail for both Heatwise and Aquaheat products is 60-90mm. The brackets used to fix the heated towel rail adjust to give you the option of how far off the wall you want you towel rail
