What are ladder electric towel rails?

Ladder towel rails are most likely the style that comes to mind when thinking of a typical towel rail. They feature two parallel vertical bars with a series of horizontal ones in between, making them ideal for hanging towels and pyjamas over so they’re toasty after a shower.
