Towel rail FAQs
How do I clean my towel rail?
The finish on your towel rail can be maintained by occasionally wiping over with a damp cloth and lightly finishing with a soft dry cloth. This should only be carried out when the rail is cold. Do not use abrasive cleaning powders as this could damage the surface finish.
How many layers of towels or clothes can I drape over my towel rail?
It is recommended that for efficient drying, no more than two layers of towels or similar fabric should be draped over the rail. Items should be placed evenly over the whole surface of the rail where possible. It is not advisable to leave very damp towels or clothes on the towel rail when not in use as this may in time affect the paint finish. The rail, although hot to the touch, is not hot enough to scorch or burn fabrics, however soap and detergents remaining in articles after washing can cause discoloration, so care should be taken to thoroughly rinse articles before airing.
Will I need to drain and refill my towel rail?
No. The rail is filled with a precise quantity of special liquid and should never need draining or refilling.
Will a towel rail warm my bathroom?
Towel rails are designed to provide an all year round service for airing towels and articles of clothing. It is not intended to be a primary heat source, but will take the chill off a small size bathroom, lavatory or en suite.

Installed fan heater FAQs
How can I clean my installed fan heater?
The external appearance can be maintained by wiping occasionally with a damp cloth. For stain removal, a weak soap solution can be applied and then wiped dry.
Internal Cleaning & Maintenance
To help prevent the build-up of dust and fluff in the heater, it is advisable to apply the soft brush attachment of a vacuum cleaner to the grille occasionally. From time to time it may be necessary to remove the heater from the furniture unit so that the interior of the heater and the heater compartment can be cleared of any accumulated dust or fluff by means of a vacuum cleaner.
To remove, unscrew the six fixing screws and withdraw the appliance from the plinth. To gain access to the inside of the appliance, remove the screws securing the top cover and clean the interior of the heater using the soft brush attachment of a vacuum cleaner, taking care not to damage the fan. Refit the top cover. The interior compartment of the furniture unit should also be cleared of dust and fluff using the vacuum cleaner nozzle. Remount the heater in the plinth ensuring the rear support bracket is still adjusted correctly. The electricity supply to the heater can now be switched back on.
