How are Warmrails and other towel warmers heated?
Warmrails use a new dry element technology called “Filatherm”,which is similar to the elements used in radiant under-floor heating, to give years of maintenance free and energy efficient heat. Warmrails reach operating temperature within 15 minutes.
Some of our competitors make hydronic warmers, which are expensive to purchase and require a plumber to install them and can only be used in conjunction with a central heating system. Operation is limited to the times that the central heating is running.
Most other models are electrical, but have oils or liquids. These can leak, especially if not maintained regularly to ensure the seals do not perish. Again, good quality oil filled warmers are expensive to purchase, and you should be prepared to have to wait for up to an hour before the warmer reaches operating temperature.
