5 KEY COMPONENTS OF A HEATED TOWEL RAIL

Every bathroom needs a Heated Towel Rail. Every single Australian deserves to step out of a shower to a towel that is warm and dry. There are five key components to consider when specifying a heated towel rail.

 

1. WHO IS GOING TO BE USING THE TOWEL RAIL

When you are designing a bathroom you always need to consider the number and demographic of people who are going to be using the bathroom. The same goes for the Heated Towel Rail. Considering the number of people using the rail will help to determine the sizing requirements of the rail to be specified.

2. TOWEL RAIL LOCATION

In the bathroom there are electrical zones which influence the location of where electrical items can be situated. Whilst the regulation does vary by location the general interpretation is that 240 volt item’s cannot be located in the wet zones of the bathroom and a 12 volt option will need to be used instead.

3. WIRING LOCATION

Always consider where the Heated Towel Rail will be wired. Not all Heated Towel rails can be wired at any of the four legs so you need to consider the wiring location of the rail and ensure that this is shown on the electrical plan. You also need to consider if the rail is going to be wired to a switch or timer and the wiring components for this.

4. OVERALL DESIGN

As the designer or the room you are responsible for the final product, how it looks and feels. There is a large range of Heated Towel Rails on the market so you should be able to find a design that suits your style and colour finish. For larger volumes you may be able to find a supplier who can custom design a rail to suit your exact requirement’s.

5. PRODUCT WARRANTY

When you specify and use products on project it is a reflection on you as the architect or designer. For this reason it is important to always select a product that will uphold your reputation. Consider the product warranty and also the overall company that you are specifying.
