Install Instructions - Electric

Fitting Instructions

Please read and follow instructions carefully to ensure the Vogue towel dryer is properly attached to the wall and floor (depending on model). Failure to follow these steps could result in problems.


The Vogue electric towel dryer is designed and constructed to give you dry and warm towels throughout the year. The towel dryer is a fully sealed unit filled with a water and ethylene glycol mix and is supplied complete ready to install (fig1&2). The towel dryer is powered by a UL approved electric element rated to IP55, for use on a 110/120Volt AC 50/60Hz single phase GFCI protected electrical supply. The Vogue towel dryer can be run constantly without interruption however please allow 30/45mins from switching on to warm up to its full potential. We recommend using the supplied timer to improve running efficiency and environmental impact.

 

The towel dryer is not intended as a room heater but can be used as supplementary heat source in a bathroom/en suite/restroom/washroom or lavatory. The surface temperature runs at approximately 120 deg. F which is the temperature zone at which mould and mildew are killed off; thereby keeping your towels fresher for longer. Please note, theface temperature will fluctuate depending on the amount of towels you are drying and also the ambient conditions.

Aftercare


From time to time it is advisable to your towel dryer to maintain its pristine finish. Do not use any abrasive or chlorine based cleaners on the towel dryer. A mild detergent (eg; a weak dish soap mix), used with a soft damp cloth and then a soft dry cloth, will restore the towel dryer to its original lustre. Please make certain the towel dryer is switched off and cool when cleaning.
