Todays Deal of The Day is a Towel Radiator, which i think is a fab price!!! Was £184.95!!! I previously posted a similar deal, but for a smaller version of this radiator, see post 1 for the link to previous deal.

If your looking at sprucing up the place, a towel radiator makes all the difference, well i think so, it adds that finishing touch :o)

Stylish designer towel radiator looks fantastic in any bathroom

There appears to be a tech mistake on the website with the towel rad spec, its listed as 2949 watts which is near 3kw elec fire type heat output!! it should be 864 watts output at t50.
The 2949 watts refers to the Btu/h heat output.
Hot ordered just got to work out how to fit the thing without flooding our house

Radiators are traditionally described with a heat output that is measured in British Thermal Units (BTU). The industry has (slowly), been trying to simplify things and as such radiators (towel rails come under that description), are now often quoted in watts. But there are many (like myself), still working in 'old money' so some manufacturers provide the heat output (it's actually 'input' but we'll not get into that), in BTUs and WATTS.

Mike is correct, they have the BTUs and WATTS in the wrong order. To explain, 2949 BTUs is actually 864 Watts (well, it's 863.688374979 Watts to be precise). In other words, they are providing the Heat Units in both BTUs and Watts. There is NO WAY this is chucking out 2949 WATTS!

Hope that helps.
Is this the place that was formerly Stax,i used to go there years ago with my then OH,i never knew it had changed it name,i used to like having a wander around there
Any photos of this particular item? The "curved" bit is what I'm confused about.
Shame it is white only - looking for chrome. Otherwise, excellent deal and a good make.
Hmm. That's VERY cheap. I wasn't going to install one in the downstairs ensuite and all the plumbing has gone in for the CH radiators, but for this price, I might get this one installed on an electric heating element separately and try and squeeze it into the room design!

Normally the curved ones are the ones that bend out slightly from the wall in the middle, as opposed to the straight ones that are like a ladder. If you search ebay for 'curved towel radiator' and straight towel radiator you'll see the difference. Most people don't notice much difference!!

Shame these are white and not chrome or I'd have definitely picked one up!! The white ones seem to have dropped dramatically in price lately, even B&Q had some for around this price the other day (although much smaller).
Thanks OP! ordered

Yeah the picture is pretty misleading showing various sizes and finishes!
Don't think valves included, although could possible re-use ones in current radiator, factor this in .....................
top one, just what the wife wanted in the house, cheers and heat added

No Brooklyn has been around for a while, it burnt down a few years back but has now got another premises across the rd, they basically trade in discontinued items from major DIY stores, not as cheap as they used to be but if you fall lucky and they have what you want then you can grab yourself a bargain.
:p:)
Thanks,

There is also a code for £10 of a £50 spend. Got 2 radiators and some vinyl tiles and a cable thing for £51 delivered.

Code NEWS023495
Hot hot hot!! Been toying with the idea of changing our ensuite rad to a larger one and this has just made my mind up.
Ordered!!!
Many thanks, great spot.
Ordered - thanks for spotting

Intend to redo our downstairs bathroom but right now its a rubbish radiator in there anyway so this is perfect Even cheapy cheap comparisons are still £100+
hi there, not to good at the diy thing but are these easy to put on 2 electric- with an electrition, but where do i get the element for this from? and do i need anything else ta
Thanks OP just ordered.

Beware though, the first time I put it through the checkout, after the card details part when you confirm order it went through at 79.99. I went back and redid and showed as correct price then.

Hot Hot Hot (Hopefully it will be)
hi i really want one of these but dunno how to fit it my hubby said we could do it if its electric but what does no element mean and does it take much for an electrician to do dont want to miss out but dont want to buy and then its no use any help greatly appreciated x
just ordered this radiator and another with the £10 discount £46 for 2 towel radiators a proper bargain thanks to the origional poster and to the person that put the discount code up
Chrome one might look good; but white one is better keeping the heat!

Choose an element from here or here and connect and wire it in. It really is that simple.

With respect Bunglistik, I think it fair to assume the posters have little or no knowledge of the technicalities of the electrical installation of a Heating Element. For instance, where are they going to wire this into in a bathroom? You and I may be aware of the regulations with regard to zoning and integrity of electrical installations within bathrooms but for a lay person to undertake such a task could be dangerous.

To anyone considering installing a Towel Rail with an Electrical Heating Element; The installation would require a fused socket that the Element would be hard wired into. That fused socket would also require it's own independent protection via a circuit breaker within a Distribution Board. If you have no idea of how to undertake those processes and/or have no idea what any of that means, then please employ the services of a competent person to carry out this work for you. It could literally kill someone if not done correctly.
