The Ultimate Guide To Heated Towel Rails

To help you purchase the right heated towel rails, we have prepared a lot of information on this page for you to delve into. To make sure you can find the information you want quickly, we have prepared this content directory that will jump to the corresponding location when you click on it.

What Is Heated Towel Rail?

A heated towel rail is a method for heating up towels before you use them. It can be either heated via electricity or through boiler, and it’s a great way of making sure your towels are warm and ready to go whenever you need them. Read on for various heated towel rails on the market, along with how they work.

Electric Towel Rails - Wire Heating

  • The best thing about electric towel rails is that they’re designed to be on the low end of what your power needs without compromising comfort.
  • The surface temperature of the device usually hovers around 40℃ to 50℃ which makes sure that never be too hot or too cold for your skin.
  • Electric Towel Rails connect directly into an existing electrical circuit so you never have to worry about plumbing it or filling them with fluid.
  • Using aluminum heating wire, electric towel rails get warm quickly (taking 5 minutes) before reaching optimum warmth within 30 minutes of operation time.
  • Thermostatic dry element rails cost as little 1 cent per hour to run. This makes them an incredibly efficient way of heating without generating high electricity bills or wasting natural resources like water.

Hydronic Towel Rails

  • Hydronic towel rails are one type of radiator, which is not only designed to heat your towels but will also warm the space.
  • They are connected to the heating system and get heat through the internal flow of hot water – generally 55℃.
  • The whole operation structure of the product is complicated, containing boiler and circulation system, piping, diverter valve, triangle valve, towel rack body, an exhaust valve, which is not easy to install, and the location of the piping must be prepared before renovation.
  • The heat-up time is dependent on if the boiler is already running and the water is hot which is slow.
  • Limited by its own materials and structure, product design plasticity is very low, the style is relatively fixed and traditional.

Liquid-Filled Towel Rails

  • The liquid-filled towel rails heat up the overall temperature by heating the liquid inside, so they need greater power, generally above 600W.
  • They are pre-filled with antiseptic liquid and sealed, then inserted into the power point or hard-wired to the switch, so they have very high requirements for sealing, otherwise there will be a risk of liquid leakage and electricity leakage.
  • In order for the product to maintain normal and even heating, the product generally requires regular maintenance, like replenishing the liquid.
  • The heat-up time will generally be a little slower than the dry element heated rails.

Is It Popular?

The popularity of heated towel rails is on the rise! 

Google Trends shows us that searches on about towel warmer have been steadily climbing each year since 2015; this increase has led many people around the world to take notice of its benefits as well: domestic sales increased by over 50% between 2015 – 2020 alone according to Export Amount data (2020).

A lot people think about installing them when they start looking into remodeling projects because let’s face it: nothing feels quite as good after coming out from under an ice-cold blast of water vapor than wrapping your head in some warm towels (even just using one hand) before getting started with whatever hair styling task awaits us next.

Types Of Heated Towel Rails

There are various kinds of electric towel racks on the market, below we will introduce different types of electric towel racks from 4 aspects such as material, surface treatment, installation method and control mode.

From Material

  • Stainless Steel

Stainless steel has become the most mainstream material for heated towel rails at present.The advantages are durability, corrosion resistance, versatile shape, and the ability to use a variety of surface treatments. The disadvantage is that the price will be a little more expensive than most materials.

stainless-steel-material.jpg
  • Mild Steel

Mild steel is the mainstream material for radiators. It has low hardness and is easy to weld. But the shape is only rounded. Since its own corrosion resistance is low, the surface must be painted. The material and processing cost is low. If it is used as the material of electric towel rail, its service life will be lower than that of stainless steel, and once a small piece of coating comes off the surface, it will rust quickly.

mild-steel-material.jpg
  • Aluminum

Most of the aluminum alloys currently used to make electric towel racks are space aluminum materials. It has a lower material cost, general corrosion resistance, and the surface can be sprayed and oxidized. The disadvantage is that the material is thin, low grade, and can not be finely polished, resulting in its production of products often existing in the case of sharp edges.

  • Brass

The brass heated towel rail is the highest-end product available. However, due to its high material cost and production cost, only very few markets are currently selling related products.

From Shape

  • Tube

The tubular heated towel rail is currently the most mainstream and popular style. It is mainly divided into two kinds of round and square tubes. There are various tube diameters, various shapes of stainless steel tube type, so stainless steel heated towel rail can have a thousand different design shapes.

  • Pannel

With the younger consumer groups, the market is increasingly demanding for the style of the towel warmer, so the panel-like electric towel warmer has become the favorite of product designers in recent years. At present, the mainstream panel electric towel warmer on the market basically uses stainless steel plates or aluminum plates. And with the rise of sintered stone in the last 2 years, sintered stone towel warmer has become a huge trend. BATHVO is the first factory in China to design and manufacture sintered stone electric towel warmer.

From Surface treatment

Color

Display

Brushed Nickle

Brushed nickel is one of the effects of polishing, which is more of a subtle, softer-looking finish. It has a slightly brushed appearance with a semi-satin finish. 

※ Popular in the USA, Australia, and New Zealand markets.

Silver

The silver surface is the other effect of polishing. It is made through multiple polishing processes and finished with a mirror-like finish.

※ Popular in the global market.

Painting

The painting process is mainly divided into two types: powder coating and painting. They can both be made glossy or matte and can be made in a variety of colors. The mainstream colors in the market at present are matte black and matte white.

※ Popular in Australia, New Zealand, USA, and European markets.

Electroplating

Electroplating is the most popular metal surface treatment that can be done in a wide range of colors. At present, the common colors in the market are chrome plating, gold, rose gold, brushed gold, brushed rose gold, and gunmetal grey.

※ Popular in the global market.

Oxidation

Oxidation is a surface treatment process specifically for aluminum. It can be done in many different colors, just like electroplating, and the current mainstream colors are brushed gold, brushed rose gold, and gunmetal grey.

From Installation method

  • Exposed

Exposed installation means the product’s power cord and power plug are exposed. Connect the power plug to the power outlet to energize. The advantage of the exposed installation method is that the product can be changed at will, while not having to consider pre-buried or damaging the wall.

Only electric towel rail can realize the way of exposed installation, and basically, all electric towel rail can be made into exposed installation. 

htr-s7-13-1
  • Concealed
Concealed installation means that the heated towel rail does not come with a power plug and the power cord is hidden. The power is energized by connecting the hidden power cord to the power cord on the wall. The advantage of concealed installation is hygiene, safety, anti-ligature, reduced vandalism, and enhanced aesthetics.
 
The most heated towel rail can realize the way of concealed installation.
  • Both Exposed & Concealed
At present, most of the hot-selling tubular heated towel rail can realize the exposed and concealed installation as one. It means that the customer can choose exposed or concealed installation independently according to the decoration conditions and application environment. The biggest advantage of this approach is the convenience of consumers, but also greatly reduces the pressure of merchants to stock up, because only one product version needs to be purchased.

From Control Mode

  • No Power Switch
Heated towel rail without switch, directly connected to the power supply, plug and work.
This type of control is popular in some markets, such as Australia and New Zealand.
  • With Power Switch

The heated towel rail comes with an on/off button to activate itself by pressing a button.

This is currently the most mainstream way of controlling the heated towel rail. The switch is divided into metal button switch and boat switch. The metal button switch is divided into with indicator and without indicator. The boat switch is divided into waterproof and ordinary versions.
  • With Timer
The timer controller is a built-in controller that can be assembled on the heated towel rail.
It can make the electric towel rack start and then automatically turn off the power at the end of the pre-set time, so as to achieve the effect of saving electricity. Currently the most common is the 2-hour and 4-hour timer off.
However, because the power and power consumption of the electric towel rack is quite low, even if the power is always on, it will not cause huge electricity bills, so this control method is not mainstream.
* Since the timer comes with a circuit board, the warranty time of heated towel rail will be reduced if with timer.
  • With Touch Screen
With the development of the smart bathroom, the touch screen controller also began to be applied to the heated towel rail. It can touch the switch, control the temperature, timing, wifi connection, and other functions.
However, controlling temperature and wifi connection is not significant for a heated towel rail. And considering the warranty risk of touch screens, heated towel rail with smart touch screen is still niche in the market.
* Since the timer comes with a circuit board, the warranty time of heated towel rail will be reduced if with timer.

Points To Note When Purchasing

FRAME

Pay attention to several factors that affect the quality & price:
① Material
② Thickness of tubes
③ Polishing and Welding

SURFACE TREATMENT

① Different surface treatments, different prices. Generally, the cost of plating is the highest.

② Even for the same finish, there are different standards, and this is a factor that affects price and quality.

HEATING WIRE

① The aluminum heating wire is always the best choice because it is mature and has all the necessary certifications.

② Regarding the emerging graphene film heating, it is not mature in the field of electric towel rack as it lacks relevant certification.

POWER CORD & PLUG

① Be sure to tell your supplier about your target market in advance, as there are many different standard power plugs around the world.

② If there is a need for certification, you can ask the supplier to provide the relevant certification for the power cord and plug.

CONTROL METHOD

① The price will be different for different control methods.

② For electric towel racks, a switch is not necessary, depending on the usage needs and habits of the target market segment.

INSTALLATION

① Not all heated towel rails can be achieved in one exposed and concealed installation.

② If you are purchasing concealed products, please find out in advance if their installation method is suitable for your market.
