Can the element be fitted horizontally as well as vertically within the radiator?
Yes the element can be fitted horizontally. The only real stipulation for use of the element within a radiator is that the element is totally immersed. Any exposure to air when the element is on will break it. For this reason it is always best to fit the element at the bottom of the radiator. Sometimes radiators can have baffles fitted inside them, which can block an element from being fitted, so it's important to check this out first.
I have a towel rail suitable for fitting an element.
The rail is 1400mm high and 500mm wide.
My question is - Which element would be suitable?
We would recommend a 300W element as a minimum for a towel rail of this size. There is a standard option or a variable option It is also perfectly acceptable to use a larger element like this 600W; you would just find your towel rail getting up to maximum temperature faster, at which point all elements self regulate.
We are considering the introduction of an electric towel rail into our bathroom the size of which is 1.7 x 2.2 x 2.4.
The size of the rail is 1000mm wide x 600mm High.
Would I be correct in thinking that an 600 Watt element would be sufficient for our needs in this application?
As a general rule of thumb we recommend that the element power output be half that of the towel rail's/radiator's rated heat output. e.g. A towel rail that can supply 800W of heat heat when installed on a central heating system would require a 400W electric element.

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.
