JIS Europe Ltd. has launched a new offering under its Sussex Range of heated towel rails. The Rye Tilting Rail has been designed to resemble a sleek, ultra modern ladder, leaning casually and lightly against the wall in a clever design twist. Indeed, the spaced out slats arrangement has negated the old problem of trying to force a plump, fluffy towel between the often too small gaps typical of competing brands while at the same time favouring the minimalist fashion favoured by many interior designers nowadays.
The Rye range of towel rails is available in three different heating formats: these being electric only, dual fuel and the ability to be utilized solely with central heating. The rails are also suitable for open plumbing systems.
Measuring 1800mm x 520mm – tapering to 300mm at the top, the JIS element is constructed from 100% stainless steel, with a built in thermostat to prevent the rail from becoming too hot and, of course, to reduce running costs.
With a BTU rating of 1878, the rail consumes just 550 Watts; while each one is manufactured with standard 1/2” BSP tappings and is pressure tested to 12 Bar.
Offering a choice of either satin or a highly polished steel surface, all Rye towel rails are hand finished by the company’s craftsmen to ensure the highest quality is maintained; so it is no surprise that JIS is confident enough to offer its usual no-quibble 25 year guarantee.
All towel rails manufactured by JIS are fabricated from 100% 304 grade stainless steel, including the brackets of which over 90% is from recycled sources – while the steel itself is 100% recyclable at end of life. There are no chemical plating processes in the manufacture of stainless steel, which ensures the rails will not rust, flake or corrode and small marks can simply be polished out making them a durable as well as an attractive and environmentally-friendly choice.
The Sussex Range’s latest towel rails have a recommended retail price of just £449.50 + VAT, while the design of JIS’s new Rye Tilting Rail ensures there is sufficient space to keep the whole family’s towels warm and dry.
