Liquid filled rails operate using an Electric Element to heat the liquid inside the rail. As the water particles heat up they move around the rail causing the entire rail to heat therefore warming and drying the towels.
One of the advantages of a liquid-filled rail is that you can replace the heating element if it was ever to fail. The element unscrews from the bottom of the upright and a new element can be installed. The Jeeves elements are designed to be used to replace an element if it fails. The Jeeves elements have a 5 year warranty.
Check the existing element to find the required wattage for the replacement. Jeeves elements come in 60, 120, 135, 150 & 220 watts.
How do I control my heated towel rail?
Thermorails are safe to be left running continuously however most times it is preferable to have the ability to control when your heated towel rail is on and off and thus saving you energy. The majority of the range of Thermorails don’t have a switch on the unit but can be very simply wired to a standard switch. Alternatively, you can wire the Thermorail to a timer that can be programmed to turn on and off to suit your lifestyle.
When ordering a Thermorail do I need to specify which wiring option I require?
Any Thermorail that has Multiflex wiring (symbolised by an ‘M’ at the end of the code) has the option of being concealed or exposed wired at any of the four mounting points. All the parts required for any of these mounting options come as standard with the Thermorail – you do not need to purchase anything extra or specify the wiring required, this can be decided at the time of installation.
Can I install the heated towel rail myself?
The towel rail is supplied with complete installation instructions so if the towel rail is going to be plugged into a power point then you can easily install the towel rail yourself. However, if you are hardwiring the towel rail then you will require a qualified electrician to wire it up.
What is Multiflex wiring?
Multiflex wiring means there is a range of different wiring options within the one rail, so the wiring can be decided at the time of installation. The multiple wiring options available are at either the top or the bottom of the rail, on the left or right-hand side – making it possible to come from any of the four mounting points. Wiring can also be exposed (plug in) or concealed (hard wired).
