Rated 5 out of 5 by from great value seems like a great towel rail and that it can be programmed. only reason for a one star on reliability is because it has only just been fitted
Date published: 2020-02-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little radiator I bought this as i was sick of turning gas central heating system on just to warm up the bathroom. Glad i did! Its been on the wall for 4 months set at a constant 21°C. No more chilly bathroom. Not sire about reliability yet but can recommend so far.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible instructions Have installed this product for over a week and still can not make head nor tail of the thermostat and programming instructions. The manual is useless and the settings way over complicated. I will persevere but hold out little hope.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Electric towel rail A good product, easily installed and works well. Programming looks a bit complicated but will give it a go. Only installed today so reliability not known yet

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid this product Easy to fit and looks tidy. HOWEVER...the instructions are truly, truly awful. Seems to pick and choose when to come on during program mode. NO PRODUCT SUPPORT TELEPHONE NUMBER! Life would be really easy if you could just speak to an engineer on the other end of the line to describe what problems you're having with the product. I just know I'm going to be going back to replace this product already.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed after 18 months The towel radiator is great value, has great controls (although a little fiddly to use) and a decent surface area. The controls being built onto the unit are great when it comes to bathroom electrical installations. We had ours set to keep the bathroom at a minimum temperature of 18 degrees C. After every shower we would run the boost for 60 minutes to help drive the moisture out of the bathroom. This system worked really well. At least, it did for 18 months and then the radiator stopped working. The guarantee is only one year so we are now left with a dead radiator. Our electrician has inspected the fuses, the cut out and the installation; all looks fine. But no working radiator. Very disappointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality To say the least. 3 tries and found one acceptable in quality then after installing it trying to program it. How they can make something so simple so complicated I don’t understand. 2 adults of 90 years and 55 yrs and 4 hours later still can’t work it out, Rubbish. Do not buy

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Suspicious specifications Just bought this, not fitted yet, as some doubt whether this unit contains any liquid at all. It only weighs 4.77kgs out of the box, but Screwfix spec says 6.8kgs? Similar size units contain at least 3 to 4 kgs water! And why is the so called vent on the bottom of the unit? Have read the programming instructions, and they might as well be in Chinese. Not happy with these anomalies, so will be taking it back. On the basis it is unused , have given 3 stars ratings on reliability and performance.
Date published: 2019-04-27
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed On opening found the paint was chipped on a couple of the joints between cross bars and the upright. Paint seemed poor and looked like it had been touched up in one place. Appears from the instructions that the fixing drillings have to be really accurate and that there has to be a minimum of 600mm from ground to bottom heated bar - that's quite high for a towel rad. So a combination of slightly dated looks, chipped paint, some reviews reporting they can fail just out of warranty made me decide to not bother with a replacement and to look elsewhere for a towel rad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more cold towels Fitted in on suite, save heating bills for such a small room, what a cracking bit of kit. Should have done this earlier, save a fortune and simple to fit.
Date published: 2019-04-02
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very unreliable We cannot rely on this to come on at the times programmed, nor can we rely on it to maintain the current time. Additionally, it seems that regardless of what programme you set it will always come on if the room temperature falls below 13C (this set point cannot be reduced any further. Basically, a simple radiator with a plug on the end of the cable would be a much better solution. At least then we could use a 7 day mains timer and rely on it switching on at the correct times. Tries to be too complicated - and FAILS.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Economy 10 I decided to buy this heated towel rail because I only have economy 10 electricity in my apartment. The instructions for the timer is a little difficult to understand at first. But if you take your time and read the instructions properly to begin with, you will realise how easy and versatile this heater really is! I only have a small bathroom but when the heat is on "comfort" it warms the whole bathroom up nicely. I love the "boost" button that you can press anytime of day to give a boost of full instant heat (30 deg) at any time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the Best towel radiator I fitted this to a cloakroom as to dry towels without having to keep the heating on, extra bill for a small job. It is a great product so I bought a second one for my studio. I am impressed, Love it. Well design. It’s a smart appearance, work very well and great price. This is one of the best product in the market from my research. I would fully recommend this radiator to anyone. I would recommend Screwfix Wolverhampton - Dunstall Hill, Excellent services. Special thanks to BEX and JILL Thumbs-up

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Guarantee not long enough I liked this towel rail very much as it looks good but it was easily thrown off by power cuts and has now stopped heating within 18 months of low level usage.I'm talking 5 hours a day maximum. Sadly I wouldn't buy again

Date published: 2018-10-14
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hard to hang towels on The gap between the towel rail and the wall is only 45-50mm. Towels need to be stuffed down the back to get them on, rather than just being able to hang them. Unfortunately this issue didn't become apparent until after I'd installed it. When I went back to the product description to check the dimensions I noticed that it mentions two sets of brackets - standard and extended. Unfortunately mine only came with one set. I'm not sure if this is an error in the description or a missing item. Unless Screwfix can provide me with some longer brackets I will be asking if I can get a refund as is doesn't seem very fit for purpose to me.its a real shame, because otherwise it seems like a well featured and nice looking item.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Radiator Broken After 15 Month This has stopped working after 15 months and only has 12 month warranty. The controls all work but radiator does not heat. Seems designed for France as automatic clock (useful in program mode) only works there and needed adjusting every 3 months or so. Was good when it worked. Programming took a bit of time to understand but ok when mastered.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from what happened to simplicity got this new electric radiator it came with an instruction manual the size of a phone book easy to fit unit lookes nice and good quality but cannot get the programer to work. as with many modern controls it is far to complicated and i cannot tel if it is broken or us not understanding the instructions. to electritions and a 10year old have had a go and still not working have changed the unit to one that just has an on off switch. screwfix as susual were great no problem with returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent price and product This is perfect for a downstairs cloakroom where it was very difficult to install a standard wet radiator into. Ample heat output and very programmable settings make for a great and easy to install overall package.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little heated towel rail We have only just got round to fitting this towel rail. Its appearance is good and it has lots of options for different settings in summer or winter. Initially we thought of getting a free standing one but this is so much better.
Date published: 2017-09-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Electric Towel Ever I have purchased and fitted a few electric towel rails over the last 15 years or so and this is by far the best I have fitted. It has been fitted for about 6 months, it was easy to fit and is performing very well, with plenty of room for towels. I looked at some of the alternatives before purchasing this rail and liked the idea of the integral thermostat, which seems to work perfectly. Overall very pleased and excellent price.
Date published: 2017-08-20
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value, looks great This was much better value than anything else I had seen, fitted perfectly in the space I had in the bathroom. Easy to fit and connect up. Quite complicated to setup using the control panel display, had to offset the temperature as the low level setting meant it was coming on when I didn't want it to. The controls have frozen a couple of times and had to reset by switching off and on, then need to reset whatever has got corrupted in the settings. Not sure if this was due to mains outage or noise but a bit of a pain. Overall performs very well, gets to a good temperature to dry towels and still looks like new.
Date published: 2017-08-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing value Good to see a UK manufactured product. Two of these purchased and shipped to Crete for use in cooler months. Comparable items would have cost almost four times as much if bought locally! Easily fitted with appropriate electrical fittings from Screwfix. Look neat and fit in well. Lower scores for last two items only because the items are as yet unused for long term use due to hot weather!

Is it really prefilled?

I have installed this radiator. It is described as “pre filled” but the unit is extremely light; I can’t imagine it is filled with any sort of liquid. Have I got a faulty unit? One that hasn’t been filled properly/at all? How can I check?
