Heated Towel Rails are an affordable luxury for every bathroom for warming and drying your towels. The SB79M Heated Towel Rail is a 680x1200mm 7 bar polished stainless steel ladder rail which is ideally sized to fit two towels. The ball joint detail of the SB79M helps to add a heritage feature style to the rail and make it the design feature of a bathroom.
The SB79M towel heater features multiflex wiring. This means that you have a connection point on the right or left-hand side of the rail, this would be typically at the bottom but the rail can be flipped so that it is at the top and provides the option of hardwired or plugin, all as standard out of the box.
The electric towel rail is designed to rapidly heat up and reach a temperature of around 45-55 degrees. The rail can be operated using an on/off switch however we recommend using a timer to allow you to set and forget and control your running costs. As the rail is electric it is very energy efficient and can cost as little as a $1 a week to run.
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).
