Affordable Luxury: Radiators and Towel Rails from Zehnder

Since the early 1930’s when Robert Zehnder became the first person to invent and successfully market the tubular radiator, a far more efficient product than the cast radiators of the time, the Zehnder Company has been innovating and introducing heating and cooling products which have been market leaders. A new range of their products is being distributed by UK Bathrooms and features a collection of cloakroom towel drying radiators that is sure to elegantly and efficiently enhance a period or modern cloakroom.

The Zehnder Stellar Stainless Steel Cloakroom Radiator is a classically modern towel drying radiator manufactured from stainless steel which has many advantages over some other materials, for example it out performs chromed steel on outputs. Strong and durable, stainless steel won’t suffer flaking either, and due to the material’s natural resilience and elasticity, it can absorb impacts far better than mild steel. The specification for this ladder style cloakroom towel dryer/radiator is 788 mm high x 300mm wide.

The overall size of these small charming radiators is 613mm high x 450mm wide.

The Charleston Spa is a move toward the more traditional styling of radiator with the emphasis on heating the area but also offering a very neatly designed chrome towel rail attached. In keeping with the more traditional styling it is offered in white that should blend with any decor, but for a more contrasting finish it is available in volcanic, which is similar to a charcoal colour. The radiator comprises of six traditional columns and is 742mm high and 306mm wide and projects 90mm from the wall.

The Zehnder Lambeth Traditional Towel Warming Radiator really is a beautiful retro style radiator, very reminiscent of the iconic photographs of classy hotels and period films that we see at the cinema or on our television screens. This style of radiator is a move in a different direction for Zehnder, but do not be taken in by the fact that it looks somewhat old fashioned. It is a highly efficient radiator, which serves a dual role, heating the room and drying and warming the towels. The cleverly designed wall or floor mounted radiator is 952mm high x 683mm wide and the wall mounted version is 686mm high x 673mm wide. This along with all Zehnder products are offered with a full manufacturers guarantee.

Terrier Straight TRV & Lockshield Thermostatic Valve Pack

The cost of oil and gas for heating our homes in not likely to come down in price very much at any time in the near future, a very good reason to preserve this precious resource. Although most, if not all homes will have some thermostatic control, this thermostat will usually be situated in a hallway or sitting room and when this area reaches the set temperature, the whole house heating is switched off.

This is one of the sound reasons for fitting thermostatic valves to each radiator. These valves individually switch off each radiator to which they are fitted when the desired temperature has been reached in its vicinity. The aspect of the room south facing large windows as an example would be ideal for a thermostatic radiator valve. This room would reach a desired temperature faster than a north facing area and vital fuel can be saved here. A full range of thermostatic valves can be found at UK Bathrooms and one example is the Terrier TRV which boasts features and benefits combining many functional advantages with attractive styling and exceptional value for money. Operation of the TRV is very user friendly. The operational temperature range is 7°C to 28°C.
