Fire Safety

Current legislation expressly prohibits the use of combustible materials in buildings with a floor above 18m in height.

Although legislation allows for combustible materials below 18m, a government advice note released in January 2019 recommends that non-combustible materials should be used on residential projects regardless of building height. It is possible that, in time, this advice will become legislation.

In answer to the continuing market demand for matt black coated towel rails, we successfully introduced the Black Edition by JIS Europe into the Sussex Range. @JIS_Europe

What stands the Black Edition Towel Rail apart from the competition is that it is, as always, manufactured from 100% stainless steel.

The rail is then powder coated matt black.

Although it may at first seem unnecessary to manufacture a coloured powder coated rail from stainless steel, the properties that set the non-coated rails apart from their mild steel counterparts still stand.  They will not rust or corrode, you are buying into a product that will endure the entire life of the bathroom itself.
