    Hi guys - hope someone can help me.

    I am hoping to fit a bathroom for a friend and he has asked if we can fit an electric towel warmer as he has only an electric fan heater in the bathroom at the moment.

    The room is 2m x 2m and he wants a walk in shower in one corner with the heated towel warmer at the opposite wall so that he can turn around in the shower and reach for a warm towel.

    I have checked the bathroom zone charts but cant quite understand how far the radiator needs to be from the water source (showerhead)?

    The zones do not affect the radiator itself - assuming it is suitable for a bath/shower room.

    However, any switches must be more than 600mm. from the open edge of the shower.

    It appears that that will be doable but if not you could have a flex-outlet by the radiator and pass the cable uncut through the outlet to a switch on the other side of the wall.

    And whatever is powering that rail must be RCD protected.
