    Thanks for your enquiry and it is always good to check. The Ferroli towel warmer in the image is actually dual fuel which means that it is part of the central heating (CH) system and also has a heating element connected to a remote switch so that you can still warm your towels when the CH is off. You may be familiar with ingress protection - IP ratings - and the zones in which such electrical items can be fitted in relation to water splash and spray (you can look these up on line or ask your electrician). This particular fitting has an IP64 rating, the second digit relating to water ingress (the higher the figure the better the protection). A 3 rating would mean that a fitting is protected against sprayed water up to 60 degrees from vertical (so our fitting with a 4 is higher than this); the 4 rating permits water splashed from all directions, with limited ingress permitted. You would need a 5 rating if you expect water from a low pressure nozzle to impact the fitting in the form of a jet. So from a practical viewpoint, in this situation, it was fine to fit such a towel warmer at the end of the bath. Indeed, surprisingly little spray actually reaches the end wall in practice. I hope this helps.

    As a footnote to the above, I have just had a look at another of these fittings directly and this was actually rated at IPX5 - so, in principle, an even higher ingress protection for the application being discussed. Thanks. Nick

Here is a towel rack solution inside the shower stall area -- is this a towel warmer/drier and could this work in my washrooms?? I need a wet towel solution in both washrooms.

HW- The floor is okay and I like the contrast with the fixtures but the walls need more of a punch with a different color. EJ - not my favorite bathroom but I like the cream color and floor color contrasted with white fixtures. TB-Same note here about the other photos having more appealing neutral colors
