How to Install a Towel Rail

Towel rails should be positioned for easy access from the shower, bathtub or vanity, but not where they can get wet from splashing. The ideal height is 1200 to 1700mm, depending on the ceiling and any obstructions.

How to Install a Towel Rail

STEP 1 : Mark the fixing points
Assemble the towel rail and measure between fixing points. Run wide masking tape along the tiles and use a spirit level to draw a straight line on the tape. Measure and mark the spacing of the lugs on the line.

 
Attach the lugs

STEP 2 : Attach the lugs
Select a sharp masonry bit to match the size of the supplied plastic plugs and fix to a power drill. Using the drill setting, apply pressure to slowly drill through the tiles. Tap the plugs into place and screw in the lugs.

 
Attach the rail

STEP 3 : Attach the rail
Slide the rail sleeves over either end of the rail and over the lugs. Tighten the pair of screws at each end with the supplied key. TIP: The small allen key nuts are hidden from view on the underside of the sleeves.
