Dimplex’s new LSTS low surface temperature electric towel rail offers safety, efficiency and easy installation for convenient towel warming in a wide range of sectors including healthcare, education, retirement homes, sheltered housing and public restrooms.

The LSTS model is surface temperature regulated to 43°C, meeting NHS guidance notes on safe-surface temperature and eliminating the risk of harm for the young, elderly or vulnerable in the bathroom.

Like all Dimplex electric towel rails, it offers quick and easy installation and operates independently of the main central heating system to provide cost-effective towel warming all year round. It is IPX4 rated for use in bathrooms and other wet areas, and comes in a distinctive white stove enamel finish.

Chris Stammers, marketing director for Dimplex, said: “The NHS guidelines act as benchmark for surface temperature regulations in a variety of sectors and the new LSTS low surface temperature electric towel rail provides a reliable and compliant solution for towel warming in each those sectors.

“A whole host of organisations from nursing homes and hospitals, to schools and retirement housing providers, can take advantage of all the benefits of electric towel warmers in the bathroom – safe in the knowledge that the appliance is also safe, cost-effective to run and easy to install.”

The new Dimplex LSTS is the latest addition to Dimplex’s range of low surface temperature (LST) heaters and follows the launch of a new intelligent, fan-assisted LST electric panel heater late in 2014.
