Does anyone know the best way to wire a heated towel rail in a bathroom,
would i need to use a switched spur or do they come with theyre own connections that are IP rated for the zone they are to be fitted in

Should be installed in zone 2 of the bathroom and i'd use an unswitched spur

Or possibly a 20A pullswitch then into a connection outlet.

When I installed one of these i just wired a switched spur as part of the ring main outside the bathroom , with a flex outlet in the bathroom

I can't see any mention of the circuit you are wiring from being rcd protected. If it is fine, if not I would use an rcd fused spur.

You don't want to do it like that, you want to do it like this.

Ho dear

All circuits in the house are rcd protected,
In the end i did as advised, spured from the bedroom socket with a swithced fused spur which was back to back with the bathroom.

I generally I spur from a local circuit and provide a RCD spur if circuit not already protected with one, for switching I will use either a pull switch in the bathroom or a DP switch outside. Flex outlet plate inside the bathroom to supply the heater. Need to remember supplementary bonding if all circuits not protected by a RCD.
