Why a steel towel warmer could be a BIG mistake.

Why a steel towel warmer could be a BIG mistake.

At Rutland Radiators we pride ourselves on the quality and longevity of our DZR brass towel warmers. Often we are asked why are towel warmers are so special.  Aside from the craftsmanship and care that goes into manufacturing each towel warmer, the fact that they are made from high quality German produced DZR brass is key.

Many towel warmers on the market are manufactured from lower quality steel. This offers a cheaper, mass market product which is favoured by large DIY stores and large wholesalers. Steel towel warmers serve a purpose in the market place as their considerably lower manufacturing costs are reflected in their sale price.

However, if you are fitting your towel warmer on a Domestic Hot Water (DHW) system, you could find yourself in a spot of bother.

The water which runs through a hot water system is the same water that runs out of your taps. Which means it is clean and free from chemicals. This is brilliant – except if you have a steel towel warmer fitted on the system.

Without any chemicals (importantly a corrosion inhibitor) the fresh water will corrode your towel warmer.

This ultimately will leave you with a badly corroded towel warmer which leaks, potentially causing further damage.

This is why at Rutland Radiators we take pride in manufacturing from DZR Brass. Developed during the First World War, it is a material that still to this day remains the material of choice when creating products that will last the test of time.

So if you are currently having problems with a steel heated towel rail, or are working on a new project or renovation, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
