Energy Efficient Heated Towel Rail

DESIGNED TO WARM AND FLASH DRY TOWELS, CHALLENGING THE CONVENTIONAL HORIZONTAL HEATED TOWEL RAIL

Gordon is a beautiful heated towel rail

Gordon’s design embraces the way that most of us already hang or dry our towels. Plus it’s space-saving design is perfect for all bathrooms and shower rooms. Wondering if Gordon Heated Towel Rail is the right fit for your bathroom? Check out our Gordon AR, which uses augmented reality on your phone.

Gordon heated towel rail offers exceptionally low power consumption, so you can leave it on all year round. Lab testing shows Eskimo’s innovative design dries towels in a third of the time compared to traditional horizontal heated towel rails.

Gordon is also made from Aluminium. So couple that with low running costs and you’ve got a power efficient product that is 100% recyclable. Aluminium has high thermal conductivity and a low thermal mass. This gives a very rapid warm up time.

Your Gordon towel rail will reach operating temperature 3 times quicker than a standard heated towel rail. Gordon – flash drying towel warmer.

Why Gordon – Heated Towel Rail?

Next there’s the physics. Using only natural convection the speed with which a towel will dry is a function of temperature, air flow and humidity.

Temperature

Designed to operate at a constant Low Surface Temperature standard of 43°C ensures complete safety. The temperature will rise slightly when covered to minimise drying time and maximise efficiency.

Airflow

This was the clever part… How do you promote the convection currents that will provide a constant flow of warm dry air over the towel. This is where our two decades of experience designing high performance radiators combined with state of the art modelling techniques come in. It’s essentially all in the form.

Humidity

This is where the traditional ladder rail design breaks down completely. Not only does it not provide adequate airflow, but due to the horizontal nature of the towel hanging it also traps a pocket of damp air underneath the towel that, once it has become saturated with moisture, cannot absorb any more and so prevents the towel from drying further in that area. Gordon towel radiator’s use of long vertical fins provides free air galleries that constantly exhaust the humid air, replacing it with dry air from underneath the towel warmer.

Our energy efficient heated towel rail

Test program 1

Consisted of heating the ladder rail with its recommended heating element of 350w. Gordon’s heating element was only 200w. The results showed that to reach atmospheric humidity level, at which point the towels were considered dry, Gordon required 84 minutes whilst the ladder rail required an additional 27 minutes. Because of the higher power consumption of the ladder rail this means that Gordon requires only 43% of the energy needed to dry the towel effectively. Over the course of a year running a Gordon instead of the less effective ladder rail could save you approximately $215 at current energy prices. Check out our socials for more stories.

Test program 2

Consisted of fitting the ladder rail with a heating element of 200w, this time designed to match the energy consumption of Gordon. Under this condition the ladder rail took nearly 3 times as long to dry the towel to the same level.

The results show that Gordon, despite taking up less than half the space of the ladder rail and looking 72.4 times better* was more than twice as effective at drying towels and should make substantial energy savings over its lifetime. Good for the customer, good for the environment and good for your towels. Good on you Gordon.
