Heated Towel Rails

Hydronic Heated towel rails are the ultimate in bathroom luxury. They provide radiant heat to the bathroom whilst keeping your towels dry, fluffy and warm. These heated towel rails not only warm the bathroom but are also a practical space saving idea if you have radiator panels throughout the rest of your property.

What’s so special about our Hydronic towel rails?

All towel rails installed by Nissl are proudly 100% locally made by Hydrotherm Australia, based in Melbourne, making custom orders no problem at all.

Our towel rails can be chrome or powder coated to suit your bathrooms colour scheme and are also available in a variety of elegant shapes and sizes to fit in with your bathroom size and décor. This makes them a stylish, efficient, and durable heating solution for your bathroom.

All Hydrotherm towel rails are manufactured from the best quality copper and brass and won’t corrode in the “wet area” of the bathroom. With an industry leading 10-year warranty, you can bank on our towel rails being able to withstand the rigors of bathroom use. Compare this to radiator panels that only have a 12-month warranty if installed into a “wet area”. Why have a radiator and a towel rail in the bathroom when you can just have a towel rail that does both jobs.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do hydronic Towel Rails work?

Towel rails work in the same way as hydronic radiator panels. Water warmed by the hydronic boiler is circulated throughout the hydronic system and once that warm water is circulated into the towel rail it heats the rail which them gently radiates heat into the room and surroundings. This includes any towels hanging on the rail.  Towel rails will heat up when the rest of the hydronic system is running.

Do towel rails use a lot of energy?

By comparison, having a towel rail instead of a radiator panel doesn’t require any more energy to heat. In fact, the best way to ensure the house is beautifully warm with hydronic heating is to ensure there are no cold patches (or unheated rooms) in the house. Utilizing a heated towel rail that is functioning in conjunction with the rest of your hydronic system is an excellent way to ensure you don’t lose warmth from the other areas of the house.  So, having a hydronic towel rail operating in your bathrooms as part of your overall heating is a wise choice.

Where can a heated towel rail be installed?

Hydronic towel rails can be installed anywhere there’s adequate access and enough wall space to fit them.

Whilst most towel rails are obviously installed into bathrooms, we have also installed them in laundry areas. They can be used to dry washing and provide some warmth into the otherwise unheated laundry areas.

We have also installed them as stand-alone rails or as drying racks within specially designed drying cupboards. A hydronically warmed drying cupboard is a great way to maximise your clothes drying potential whilst your heating is on, and your hydronic system is running and will costs to less than half the price to run than traditional electric drying cupboard or clothes drier.

Are heated towel rails safe?

Like any of the radiator panels within the house, towel rails will be hot to touch when they are in heating up mode. This, however, isn’t hot enough that you will burn yourself by touching them. Towel rails can also have thermostatic relief valves installed whereby you can manually turn down the temperature on the individual panels or towel rail.

If need be, we can also turn down the overall water temperature flowing through your hydronic system though this will increase the amount of time it takes the hydronic system to get up to your desired temperature and can affect the systems efficiency. Older children and pets will learn to avoid the towel rails and panels when the system is heating up though if you have very small children, feel free to discuss any concerns with whichever sales rep is designing your system..

Can I have my towel rail heating when the rest of the heating is turned off?

If you have a fully hydronic towel rail? No, you can’t run them individually.

However, if you would like this as a feature, please let us know, as we can install an electric heated towel rail which are totally independent to the hydronic and can be used at any time and can be controlled manually and used at any time.

These electric towel rails feature an electric element inside them, and they are full of water (just like the hydronic version). The element gently heats the water inside the rail, and they radiate heat in the same way as a fully hydronic towel rail. It’s a great option and gives you more versatility with the design of your heating system.
