Would it be possible to route this via a timer? What setting does the element assume when the power comes on, following an off/on?
Yes, this product can operate in conjunction with a timer. When the power comes back on, the element returns to whatever power setting it was on when the power went off.
What is recommended wattage for 1600 x 500 mm chrome ladder towel rail?
The answer here really depends on the specifics of the ladder towel rail in question. There are many styles out there made to the same dimensions, yet some will have greater volumetric capacity due to thicker diameter tubing being used in construction.

If you have standard ladder towel rail, the odds are that it has D shaped tubing down the sides and at least 15-18mm diameter crossbars. Working to this assumption, this 600W element is the ideal size for your towel rail. If you are somewhat uncertain, then there is no harm in using the larger 1000W element (, it just means your towel rail will warm up faster. They are all designed to regulate at the same temperature.

How long do I have to return my goods?
At West Radiators, we want to give you as long as possible to decide that you have the right radiators. To achieve this we offer a 14 days return period on any stock items. This means you have double the amount of time over the legal standard to return goods to us. The only exception to this is for customised radiators, these cannot be returned.

How do I go about returning items to you?
The first step is to contact our customer service department, they will issue you a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number. If emailing customer services you will need to supply your name, order number, items to be returned and the reason for return.

The next step is to have the items returned to us. We appreciate that not everyone has access to a courier, so we recommend We Deliver The World. A helpful website that will scout out the best possible courier quote to suit your needs.
