    Hi, I'm planning to replace an existing radiator with a towel radiator.
    Will the towel rad fit directly onto the existing fittings?

    Cheers,

    You need to measure the distance between both pipe centres and try get a towel rail with pipe centres that match.
    650mm or so id guess

    Most towel rails have bottom entry connections

    You need ‘in line’ valve fittings rather than the angled ones you have.

    Thanks for the replies, seems I have a bit of digging to do.

    Are you sure you'll get enough heat out of the towel radiator to heat the bathroom?
    Normally towel radiators are good for heating towels ... but pretty poor at heating rooms.
