Stainless Steel Heated Towel Rails

When most people think of a towel rail, the finish they’ll envision is stainless. It is the most common finish on towel rails for a good reason; it provides lustre on the colour of the rail and adds longevity to the product. Trade Radiators is proud to stock a range of high-quality stainless steel towel rails for our customers across the UK.

When you want to add some colour to the bathroom with a copper ladder rail, need to save space with a compact 500mm square rail, or simply want a reliable rail that looks fantastic in any room, you’ll find it here on this page.

What styles do stainless steel heated towel rails come in?

We provide stainless steel in both straight and curved ladder styles.

The expected shape and spacing of the rail will depend entirely on what the use of the rail is. For example, someone would want a stainless steel rail in their bathroom with plenty of rooms between rows for towels and robes to be tucked in to. Someone looking for a rail in their dining room or hallway would prefer a rail with thicker rows and less spacing between sections to help boost heat output.

What colours do stainless steel towel rails come in?

It is important to remember that stainless steel refers to the material and protective layers of the rail and not the colour. This is why we have stainless steel towel rails in the following finishes:

  • Black Nickel
  • Copper
  • Polished
  • Satin

If you are looking for a truly unique colour on the rail, we recommend looking at our full range of towel rails by finish.

Are stainless steel towel rails hard to keep clean?

Trade Radiators provides rails with a high-quality finish, so you shouldn’t have to worry about keeping the rail clean or needing any unique polishes to help keep the shine. These rails can be dusted down and cleaned just like any other radiator you have.

Remember too that a stainless steel radiator can also help prolong the life of the radiator and minimise the risk of rusting from oxidisation.

What brands make the best stainless steel towel rails?

There are a handful of brands that make fantastic stainless steel products. Some of these include:

DQ Heating

DQ is known for creating rails with thinner rows and greater spacing. They are ideally suited for spaces where you are striving for a minimal look, as well as the black nickel colour working well in contemporary commercial spaces.


Pisa provides the benchmark in rail quality, and many of their designer options on this page would be what you’d expect a standard stainless steel towel rail to look like. Their 1000mm by 600mm rail is very popular for open-plan areas like the kitchen and reception spaces.


If you’re looking for something a little different, and space is an issue, Reina is worth a look. The likes of the Reina Deno Towel Rail, Stainless Steel, 500x500mm is proving a popular solution for customers who want a rail but have practically no space to work with.

What size of stainless steel towel rail do I need?

You don’t always need to follow the measurements of where your rail will go to the millimetre or buy the biggest towel rail possible when you have problems keeping a room warm.

The most crucial part of buying a towel rail is knowing how much heat your rail will need to generate. Every room has a specific British Thermal Unit (BTU) is needs to reach to feel warm. You’ll see we list the BTU of every single rail in stock to help you find a size for your space. If you are unsure what that is, our heating calculator can help you calculate the BTU rating of any room, and help you narrow down your selection.
