HEATING OPTIONS

There are two types of HEATING ONLY options as follows:

heating only  HEATING ONLY (HO) - Suitable for ALL circuits

For connection to either direct (open) or indirect (closed) central heating or hot water circuit.

heating only (closed circuit)  HEATING ONLY (HO) - Suitable for indirect (closed) circuits only

For connection to an indirect (closed) central heating circuit ONLY. Cannot be installed on an open circuit due to the item containing ferrous metal (steel) parts.

  • Ensure the towel rail of your choice is suited to the circuit available. Never install an item containing Ferrous Metal (Steel) parts on an open circuit.
  • Wherever possible Vogue towel rails are manufactured using dezincification resistant brass. However, it should be understood the term ‘resistant’ does not entirely preclude the possibility of dezincification occurring. If you intend to install the product on an open (direct) hot water circuit, make reference to your local water authority to ensure dezincification has not previously occurred.
  • Towel rails manufactured from brass tubing should not be installed on an open circuit if a water softener is present. Product compatibility is the responsibility of the installer.
  • In aggressive water areas, or where water softeners are installed, dezincification resistant materials are available and can be specified for certain models.

electric only  ELECTRIC ONLY (EO)

A completely independent unit requiring only a fused spur electric connection in close proximity. Standard format for electric towel rails is fluid filled. Thermal transfer fluid is heated by an electric element located at the bottom of the towel rail. The element is a sealed cartridge and therefore can be easily changed in case of failure.

  • Installation should only be conducted by a qualified electrician and must comply with current IEE wiring regulations and BS7671 or with those enforced by the appropriate regulatory bodies for the country or region in which the unit will be located.
  • Always ensure the towel rail is protected by a suitably rated fuse (typically 5amp) or proprietary brand residual circuit breaker.
  • The electrical element within the towel rail is manufactured and inspected to European Standard EN60335-1 (CENELEC) - CE 61/50. It is splash proof only and must never be immersed.
  • The towel rail must always be installed with the element at the bottom of the unit. Thermal circulation will not occur if the towel rail is installed with the element at the top. Consequential damage to the element will then occur.
  • Electric Only towel rails are designed for continuous operation and are perfectly safe if left switched on permanently. If timed operation is required the time clock utilised should be rated to the wattage of the electric element.

dual energy  HEATING & ELECTRIC (HE)

Also known as dual fuel or dual energy. Connected to a central heating circuit and including an electrical element which allows for operation in summer months when the central heating is NOT in use.

  • Ensure the towel rail of your choice is suited to the circuit available. Never install an item containing Ferrous Metal (Steel) parts on an open circuit.
  • Wherever possible Vogue towel rails are manufactured using dezincification resistant brass. However, it should be understood the term ‘resistant’ does not entirely preclude the possibility of dezincification occurring. If you intend to install the product on an open (direct) hot water circuit, make reference to your local water authority to ensure dezincification has not previously occurred.
  • Towel rails manufactured from brass tubing should not be installed on an open circuit if a water softener is present. Product compatibility is the responsibility of the installer.
  • In aggressive water areas, or where water softeners are installed, dezincification resistant materials are available and can be specified for certain models.
  • Installation should only be conducted by a qualified electrician and must comply with current IEE wiring regulations and BS7671 or with those enforced by the appropriate regulatory bodies for the country or region in which the unit will be located. The heating element in dual fuel units should be installed prior to leak testing of the system but not powered up until the system is full of water and operational. The towel rail must be individually earth bonded.
  • Always ensure the towel rail is protected by a suitably rated fuse (typically 5amp) or proprietary brand residual circuit breaker.
  • The electrical element within the towel rail is manufactured and inspected to European Standard EN60335-1 (CENELEC) - CE 61/50. It is splash proof only and must never be immersed.
  • The towel rail must always be installed with the element at the bottom of the unit. Thermal circulation will not occur if the towel rail is installed with the element at the top. Consequential damage to the element will then occur.
  • The heating element in dual fuel models must never be operated without the towel rail being completely full of water and connected to the central heating system. The system design must guarantee constant filling of the unit. Special care must be taken after any service work requiring ‘drain down’ of the system.
  • In dual energy models allowance for thermal expansion must be made by having the return valve partially open. The flow valve must be closed to prevent cycling through the system. Manufacturers notes do not override legal obligations.
  • On no account should the electric operation of dual fuel models be utilised in conjunction with the central heating operation.
