SV68 Straight Round Swivel Heated Towel Rail
Heated Towel Rails are an affordable luxury for every bathroom for warming and drying your towels. The SV68 Heated Towel Rail is a 570x1260 8 bar polished stainless steel swivel rail.
The SV68 towel dryer is able to be swivelled 180 degrees when installed on the wall. Each bar can also be swivelled independently on the rail. The advantage of the swivel rail is that the bars can be spread out to help drying and they can be installed in a corner with only two mounting points on the wall.
The swivel rail can be hardwired or plugin with the wiring coming from the fixing point at the bottom of the rail. The rail also features an on/off switch on the bottom of the upright.
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.
Do the bars swivel together or independently, and how far can they swivel?
On all Thermorail Swivel Heated Towel Rails each of the horizontal bars can swivel 180°, to the right or left, independent of the other horizontal bars. This provides a flexible and user-friendly design for any bathroom.
Can I wire multiple rails to one timer?
Yes, absolutely, you can connect more than one heated towel rail to a single timer. There are just a few things to consider; You cannot exceed the load rating of the timer (this varies from 1 amp to 16 amps depending on the timer), and all the rails wired to one timer will be on at the same time, they cannot be set on individual schedules. The addition of a timer makes your life simple and rewarding with warm towels everyday and wiring multiple rails to one timer allows you to achieve this result easily and beautifully.
Can my electrician install and hardwire a heated towel rail in existing room without damaging the tiles?
In order to install and hardwire a Heated Towel Rail into an existing bathroom, the first most important consideration is whether your electrician is able to get power from the switch position to where the Heated Towel Rail will be mounted. If power to the mounting position is available, the electrician will need to drill a hole (12-15mm depending on the rail) in the tiles to hardwire the Heated Towel Rails power lead through the wall. For the other three legs, a screw hole into the tiles will be required for the mounts to be secured. Therefore, if the electrician can get power to the position and is able to drill the one hole without damaging the tile, then it is possible to install and hardwire a Heated Towel Rail into an existing room without any damage. Alternatively, the majority of the Thermorail range (excluding 12Volt) have the option to have exposed wiring, meaning they can be easily mounted to your wall and plugged into a nearby power point so that no wiring is required in the wall or roof cavity.
