R2 Electric Heating Element


Ensure a tidier installation with the R2 heating element. As all functions are housed into a single unit. So that no additional connections needed.

The R2 monitors the temperature of the radiator, rather than the room temperature. Not only does this increase the accuracy of the element, but it isolates the radiator form other heat sources, which may otherwise interfere with your towel drying. Simply select the times when you need the element to be on and relax.

Packed with all features that you could ever need. You will be able to use the 7-day hour by hour timer, alongside the adjustable temperature control. All settings are changed by using the infa red remote control.

The remote control’s display shows operating status. With the ECO button, the radiator enters the energy saving mode. With the key lock function, can be used in low temperature areas. So, a low temperature e.g. 40 °C can be safely maintained where regulations require it.

The R2 element is complete with a comprehensive 2 year manufacture’s guarantee.

  • 24 Hour Timer
  • Adjustable temperature from 70 – 30 degrees
  • Remote Control
  • IPX4 Rated
  • 1.2m Flex
  • 2 Year Guarantee

    I bought this in January 2015 for my Creda OTRC500 electric towel rail when that element failed. The Creda uses a pilot wire system, so on/off times are set from a central controller. I couldn’t get a replacement at a sensible price and I certainly wasn’t going to replace the whole towel rail unit, so I hunted around and found this R2 unit. Kieran and Neil from Sol*Aire were very helpful and, with their reassurance, I pressed ahead. It was pretty straightforward to fit: the heating element is a standard 1/2″ thread, which was a direct replacement for the old element. The wiring into the wall was also straightforward.

    So, what do I think 15 months on? I’m absolutely delighted! The remote control has allowed me to set up different on/off times for each day of the week, and to set a general heating level – I set this higher in the winter and low in the summer. It all works well. I’ve used the eco setting for when I’ve been away, or just turned it to off. Only minor niggle is that the instruction manual could be clearer on how to set up the remote, but I worked it out ok.

    Highly recommended.
