Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple to install Bought to replace an old thermostatic element to use with a new heating element control panel. This reduced the cost of the element and gave more flexibility for the level of heating required. Easy to install. 19 Dec 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good product Good product no leaks did use Ptf tape as recommend by manufacturers. Heated up quickly Customer very happy so that makes me happy Would use again 5 Oct 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by towel rail heating element Easy to fit and works well. However, electrical cord is quite short. Would be better if it was 1.5 meters long. Cannot comment on reliability as I have only fitted the element two days ago. 21 Jun 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by flawed elbow design The elbow replaces a 1/2" BSP stem where the valve has 360deg freedom. The elbow is a O ring design where the final inlet alignment cannot guarantee an O ring seal. No wonder two of the reviews refer to leaks. The instructions say (in red) "Always use PTFE tape ... do not JUST (my emphasis) rely on the O ring seal. That is nonsense, a design should either be PTFE or O ring. I have never had a 1/2" BSP O ring seal blanking plug or bleed valve leak. So I used liquid PTFE in preference to tape. No leaks and a hot towel rail. 7 Apr 2015

Answer: 
Hello Portugese,

This depends on the radiator itself.

If it is suitable for electric installation it should have a max wattage rating that you can use to guide your decision for an element.

Answer: 
Hello,

With regard to the radiator elements, only one is required in one side which subsequently heats the contents of the radiator to the sufficient temperature, there is no ability or need to use two elements.

As towel rails are mostly used in bathrooms it would be very useful to know this Rating as it determines where within the bathroom it can be fitted safely and comply with electrical regs !

Answer: 
In the picture, it has IP64 printed on the item.
(But I'd imagine placement would also be affected by what you wired if into & how.)
