Material

Steel offers the lowest price tag compared to other materials, but it also offers the most diversity in terms of colour and style. Steel is malleable which allows towel rails to be efficient because they can be physically designed to better pass heat from the water inside to the space around them (this is a radiator's job after all, despite some thinking that its job is to “store” heat). The heat output is also good, the proof is in the pudding with this one - would steel be the most common radiator material if the heat output was rubbish? Steel is a highly durable material which is important as towel rails are going to be the victims of some knocks and bangs over time and you want them to withstand that.

Style

A popular pick for those looking to add a touch of design to their bathroom, the flat tube style offers a slimline feel that will work with pretty much any décor. The Tristan has horizontal flat tubes, grouped in threes, which are connected to two vertical round tubes (these are called collectors) on one side of the towel radiator. It is completely reversible, meaning you can have the collector tubes (the vertical ones) on the left or right hand side. This open-ended design makes guiding towels on and off super easy. The powder painting gives the metal a perfectly even finish. It’s easy to maintain and clean and delivers a good level of heat distribution. The design means a greater surface area than a ladder towel rail of the same size and therefore more heat output – get those towels nice a toasty for when you step out the shower!

Colour

Black, the colour that always fits and never fades. This matt black powder painted towel rail is exactly what your home needs. Black radiators go well with anything. As a colour, there are few shades or hues that it does not complement. Whether providing effective shadow tones to an already dark background, or a striking contrast to more brightly coloured walls, black towel rails rarely look out of place. As well as suiting a great variety of home styles, black is a very forgiving shade. It won't show dust, dirt, or rust like white so you know they will look great well into the future.

Heat Source

This central heating/hot water towel rail is one that is plumbed into your homes central heating system. Whether you have a Combi boiler, gravity fed (conventional) system or a system with a cylinder, you can install this heated towel rail.

Accessories

This towel rail has G1/2” connections at the base of either side of the towel rail and so the valves required will depend on your pipework (which is why they aren’t provided with the towel rail):

  • For pipework coming from the wall to the bottom of the rail, use angled or corner valves (angled, for a valve head that sticks out into the room and corner for a valve head that’s tucked under the rail).
  • For pipework coming from the floor and up to the bottom of the rail, use straight valves.

There are a few different types of valves available for you to choose from: Manual Valves provide easy on/off control – simply turn the valve by hand to allow the water from your central heating to pass through into the radiator or towel rail, just like a tap! These are commonly used with towel rails because of their ease, but that doesn’t mean you have to choose manual – unless your main boiler thermostat is located in your bathroom, which is unlikely.
Thermostatic Valves provide multi temperature control of the radiators in your home – saving energy and money! These valves have sensor mechanisms inside that shut off the flow of hot water to the radiator when the room temperature reached the desired level!

All of our towel rails are supplied with everything required to hang the rail on the wall (brackets & masonry fixings) as well as a chrome bleed valve and blanking plug for the top of the rail. For ultimate style we recommend you also purchase some colour matching pipe covers, either match the colour to the towel rail or the valves!

The radiator is stylish and working well. Great to have a duel-fuel tower radiator, especially during the summer months when the central heating is off.
