W = Width of the towel radiator
H = Height of the towel radiator
D = Depth of the towel radiator (30mm)
PC = Pipe centres of the towel radiator
C = Connection threads (1/2" BSP)
X= Recommended gap between the vertical bar and wall bracket (30mm)
Y* = The distance between the wall and the centre of the air vent (bleed valve)*

  • *All towel radiators are supplied with 4 adjustable brackets enabling you to adjust the distance between the wall and the centre of the radiator (centre of the air vent - bleed valve) to a value between 75mm and 105mm
  • Please note that the actual projection from the wall to the front of the radiator is minimum 90mm and maximum 120mm. These figures only apply to FLAT radiators. You will need to add an additional 30mm to 60mm to CURVED radiators. i.e., a 400mm wide curved radiator will protrude approximately 30mm further than flat models whereas a 700mm wide curved radiator will protrude approximately 60mm more than that of the flat version.
