Drying and airing towels
Good airflow, which allows the replacement of humidified with fresh air is essential for efficient drying, so Gordon functions best when no more than two layers of towels or similar fabric are draped over each fin of the Gordon, and air is allowed to vent from the area between the fins. Items should be placed evenly over the whole surface of the fins where possible.
It is not advisable to leave very damp towels or clothes on the towel rail when not in use, as this may in time, affect the paint finish.
Gordon, although warm to the touch is not hot enough to scorch or burn fabrics. However, soap and detergents remaining in articles after washing can cause discoloration. Therefore, care should be taken to thoroughly rinse articles before airing.
Heat will be distributed along each of the fins. Some variation in the temperature across the surface of the rail is normal. When the appliance is covered the temperature, particularly at the upper part of the fins will rise.
The towel warmer may be switched on and off at the isolating wall switch. A timer can also be utilised to improve energy efficiency. The specification and installation of switches and any additional controls are the responsibility of the installer and must be installed in accordance with current electrical installation regulations.
There are no user serviceable parts on the towel rail.
The powder coated finish on your towel rail can be maintained by occasionally wiping over with a damp cloth and lightly finishing with a soft dry cloth. This should only be carried out when the rail is cold. Do not use abrasive cleaning powders as this could damage the surface finish. Avoid harsh chemical cleaners and do not use solvents or petroleum-based cleaning products – these can damage the coating of the Gordon and therefore reduce its service life. Essential oils, especially those containing eucalyptus, may harm the powder coated surface – it is recommended that these are kept away from your Gordon.
