ALBION

From simple towel warmers to complete bathroom heating, Albion have the answer. With all classical and contemporary designs catered for, Albion towel warmers can be powered via your central heating, mains electricity or a combination of the two. Finished in Chrome or Bright Nickel, these products provide the ultimate finishing touch.

 

To ascertain the heat output (BTU) required per room, multiply the length x width x height of the room (in feet) x 4. i.e. room length 10ft x room width 8ft x room height 8ft x 4 = 2560 BTU’s required for a output of 50°c (please note other manufacturers may be to 60°c).

FAQ

Towel Warmers & Radiators

Your questions answered...

Q. Can an Albion towel warmer or radiator be fitted onto any heating system?

 

A. All products made of steel or iron can be fitted onto an open-vented, sealed central heating system. Products manufactured from brass can also be fitted onto the domestic hot water system.

 

Q. Can I use my towel warmer in the summer months without having to worry about turning on the entire central heating system?

 

A. Yes. As well as electric only models, Albion products can also come as dual energy models. This comes with an electric heater kit, so in the summer when your heating is switched off, the electric element is used to heat the unit, allowing you to enjoy the comfort and convenience of warm, dry towels.

 

Q. What if I don’t know my heat output requirement?

 

A. The simple formula to find your required heat output in BTU/hr is to multiply the room’s volume in cubic feet by 4. Therefore, length(in feet) x width (in feet) x height (in feet) x 4 = BTU/hr.

Q. What does BTU mean?

 

A. BTU stands for British Thermal Units and is measured per hour, hence Btu/hr. In easy terms, the higher the number, the more heat the rail will produce. If you have a large bathroom and you want to heat the room as well as your towels, then you should go for a rail with a high Btu/hr rating.

 

Q. What if I don’t have central heating?

 

A. All Albion towel warmers can be supplied as sealed-electric units. The same quality and craftsmanship goes into your product, but instead of fitting it to a heating system, it is wired into your mains. Always consult an electrician to ensure that the installation meets the required standards.

 

Q. Will a towel warmer also heat the room?

 

A. It all depends on the model of your choice. The higher the Btu/hr the more heat will be given off into the room. Please note, if the unit is covered with wet towels, the heat will be absorbed to dry them, therefore less heat will go into the room.

 

Ensure the space you have is of adequate dimensions and that suitable services can be directed to the location. Check you have sufficient room to accept the projection of the towel rail without impeding access or door opening etc. Always install a towel rail with suitable means of local isolation. All Albion products must be installed in accordance with BS5449, BS7593 and BS7671 to avoid invalidation of the guarantee.
