Types of heated towel rails

From the traditional to the ultra-modern, wall-mounted towel radiators offer flexibility and practicality. We have created a guide to choosing your type of towel rail.

In most bathrooms a towel rail should not be considered as the main source of heating but as a supplementary source for drying and warming your towels.

Many towel rail ranges have both floor and wall mounted options and some require valves to be ordered seperately.


This towel rail is heated by hot water and is typically installed on the central heating line.

Dual Fuel

Balancing between the water and electric, the dual fuel supports both options, able to run on the central heating as well as independently as required.


Electric towel rails have the flexibility to be installed almost anywhere, with the added benefit of being able to run independently.
