Wonderfully versatile, electric towel rails come in a variety of designs to suit your space and we stock everything from traditional chrome ladder towel rails to chic anthracite rails with an industrial flavour. Slender, convenient, and energy-efficient, an electric towel warmer is the definitive must-have for bathrooms, washrooms, and personal en-suites.

The benefits of electric towel rails

How do electric towel rails work?

Electric towel rails for bathrooms use either thermal fluid or dry thermal elements to keep spaces warm and dry your towels. Oil-filled electric towel rails heat a specially formulated thermal fluid within their casings. The oil evenly spreads heat along the length of the rails, radiating warmth into the room and drying any towels draped over the bars. These types of electric towel rails come pre-filled, so there’s no mess or hassle. Dry thermal towel rails use a stretch of wire that conducts electricity. When warm, this wire emits radiant heat across the front surface of the towel rail, warming anything directly in front of it. The difference between dry thermal and thermal fluid towel rails is largely aesthetic. Dry thermal towel rails come with flat fronts similar to an infrared panel, whereas thermal fluid towel rails tend to feature ladder shaped designs. Towel radiators with oil retain heat better than dry thermal towel rails, making them the better choice for heating larger, more expansive bathrooms.

Do I need a thermostatic or manual towel rail?

Depending on your requirements, you can choose either a manual or thermostatic heated towel rail. Manual bathroom heaters offer rudimentary temperature control, allowing you to turn the rails on or off; whereas thermostatic electric towel rails allow you to select different heat levels depending on your needs. Some thermostatic electric towel warmers contain countdown timers and 24/7 programmers, whilst those with smart Bluetooth or WiFi app compatibility offer even greater scope for heat management. Manual towel rails are better suited to infrequently used spaces where towel drying is the main priority, while thermostatic electric towel rails for bathrooms are ideal for hectic family bathrooms that see more use throughout the day. Whichever you choose, you can enjoy the benefits of cosy, warm towels on demand.

Convenient & stylish bathroom heating

Electric towel radiators and rails blend subtle style with invaluable practicality; an attractive and useful addition to any bathroom. Simply hang used towels over the bars and they’ll be fresh and dry for your next visit while also providing additional storage to declutter your space. An electric towel heater also offers an independent source of heat, allowing you to run your towel rail without engaging your primary heating system and unnecessarily heating your whole home. Our extensive range includes traditional-style ladder towel rails in bright chrome finishes to designer electric towel rails that come in bold metallic black – all of which can be purchased in multiple sizes to suit your space. Whatever your taste or size of bathroom, we’re sure to have the ideal bathroom radiator for you.
