Modern Towel Radiators

Modern towel radiators have come a long way since the age-old days of cast iron radiators. Now you can find state of the art flourishes in the guise of thermostats, Bluetooth operated radiators and electrically heated towel rails. This change in the way that we approach our home / office heating has led to a transformation of the modern radiator.

If you're thinking.. “What can make a radiator more modern?”, well it's not just the style. Even the way some of our radiators work inside is constructed with futuristic designs. Like our electric towel radiators, instead of connecting them to your copper pipes to have water delivered from your boiler, you can instead install them near plug sockets and just plug it in. Or even materials, instead of the heavy cast iron that used to be common, we now have a mixture of light weight aluminium, corrosive resistant stainless steel, mild steel and so much more. Not to mention you're no longer stuck with limited sizes. We offer a vast array of size options for many of our towel rails if you have a small or large space.

Before you decide on your perfect radiator, you need to work out the optimal BTU output from your space. We have created a free BTU calculator for you to use. This will allow you to view the radiators that will best heat your space.

Modern Towel radiators are so vast in design now that they are no longer bound to the bathroom. Many of our towel rails are highly stylish and extremely practical in kitchens, cloakrooms, washrooms and even hallways to hang your coats on.

Towel rails and towel radiators have come much further than the olden days. With modern technology and optimised designs, many towel radiators can heat your space. This includes our towel rails too.

Where Is The Best Place To Install A Heated Towel Rail?

Installing a towel radiator here will help distribute the heat around your room. If you're placing your heated towel rail in your bathroom then it's also recommended to place it closer to your bath or shower so towels are easy to reach.
