Where can your heated towel rails be positioned in the bathroom?

1689 views  June 3, 2021

All of the Radiant Australia towel rails are rated either IPX4 or IPX5 when hard wired. The AS/NZS wiring regulations permit for IPX4 or greater rating appliances to be installed in zone 1 of your bathroom (which includes above baths and at the end of open showers). They must be hard-wired and the controller/switch must be positioned in zone 3.

You electrician can find details of this in their Australian Electrican Standards book on page 249 of AS/NZS 3000:2007 or on page 323 of AS/NZS 3000:2018.

As bathroom designs vary greatly and as with any electrical appliance, please ask your builder to consult the current version of the AS/NZS 3000 electrical regulations and any relevant local authority / inspector in order to confirm the exact position allowable.
