- Product Code: B08R7V48LH
LATEST ENERGY SAVING HEATING TECHNOLOGY: Our PTC elements are the latest and most energy efficient towel rail heating elements on the market today. PTC technology unlike traditional heating elements that use a resistance wire, use ceramic stones. These ceramic stones are manufactured to heat up to a around 65 degrees and then maintain that temperature by reducing the power used. Initially the element will use 300 watts of power until the rail reaches its’ designed operating temperature of 65°

PTC heating elements are the latest and most energy efficient towel rail heating elements on the market today. This element allows you to convert a standard central heating towel warmer to run on electricity – perfect for when you don't want to alter your central heating pipework, if you don't have regular central heating or if you want the freedom to use your towel rail throughout the year. PTC technology – how does it work? Unlike traditional heating elements that use a resistance wire, PTC heating elements are made as ceramic stones. These ceramic stones are manufactured to heat up a defined temperature and then maintain that temperature by reducing the power. Initially the element will use 200 watts of power until the rail reaches its’ designed operating temperature of 65°C after which it will reduce the electrical current whilst maintaining the rail temperature. As a result, a separate thermostatic control unit is not required, and the heating element uses significantly less electricity than a conventional heating element. Suitable for standard ladder rails 300mm wide x 800, high, 400mm 500mm wide x 600 high and towel rails with a small number of cross bars.
Customer questions and answers
- Do I just refill the radiator with water or is there a special gel/fluid? How long is the element (I want it for a 400mm wide normal radiator)It is special oil you buy in a plumbing shop, the oil will keep the heat longer.150W is more than enough for this size of a radiator.
- Can you still use a temperature control unit on itOf course, I bought some cheap controller and it works just fine
