Tuzio Avento Towel Warmer

All About Tuzio Towel Warmers

Comfort, luxury and sophistication have combined to make Tuzio the most inspiring range of towel warmers in North America. Tuzio towel warmers offer superb quality and exceptional value, setting a new benchmark in performance and excellence – rivaled by none.

Installation Options

When you choose a Tuzio towel warmer for your bathroom, you can choose from hydronic, electric plug-in or electric hardwire! This gives you complete freedom to pick the option that matches the design needs of your home.

Styles and Sizes

Tuzio’s designer towel warmers come in many styles and sizes so you are sure to find the perfect fit for your unique style. From the ultra-modern to ultra-traditional and everything in-between, our Tuzio collection has a towel warmer that will suit your style.

Radiant Heat

Tuzio towel warmers use a fluid-filled heating system technology throughout the towel warmer range. This results in warmer towels and superior heating output over and above that of other heating methods. These towel warmers are capable of not only heating your towel but can become a secondary source of heat in your bathroom.

Adjustable Brackets

ICO towel warmers are not only luxurious, but we pride ourselves in making them as practical and functional as we can. One of these features is the Tuzio’s adjustable brackets. Consider the following scenarios:

  • Is the best spot (visually and functionally) for your soon-to-be new towel warmer over a transition between tile and drywall? Often, when this is the case, towel warmers end up slanted… but not our Tuzio line. You can easily adjust the bracket length to accommodate for the transition.
  • A big fan of the super fluffy and thick towels, instead of the regular-sized bath towel? Tuzio’s adjustable brackets also allow you to extend your towel warmer out from the wall to allow more space for that larger bath towel. What this means is that you can make sure your towel gets full contact on both sides of the towel warmer – more warmth, more comfort, more satisfaction.

Everyday Luxury

With so many great features, including adjustable brackets, the Tuzio line is worth looking into. All Tuzio heated towel warmers come with a limited lifetime warranty, plus the comfort of knowing your bathroom will be extra cozy for years to come. Discover the unmistakable luxury only heated towel warmers can bring.

How To Order A Hydronic Towel Warmer

How To Order A Hydronic Towel Warmer

It’s time, you have made the decision to install a hydronic towel warmer in your home! Now it’s time to place an order… but there are so many options and you don’t know where to start. Don’t worry, just keep on reading and we’ll get through this together.

  1. You need a boiler system in your home to install a hydronic towel warmer.
    • It is important that the towel warmer can also be installed on a closed loop with an anti-rust inhibitor in it to avoid rusting.
  2. Are your feed pipes coming from the floor or wall?
  3. BUT, there are 3 options of valves, what’s the difference?!
    • Regular: This is a regular valve that you can tighten and loosen to increase and decrease the heat output of the towel warmer.
    • Thermostatic: This acts just like a regular valve, but has visual heat settings of 0-6.  This option is our favourite, but we know everyone has unique tastes.
    • Traditional Gate Valve: These are only for our traditional styled towel warmers. If you are purchasing a traditional towel warmer, we recommend these valves.
  4. What else do I need?
    • Every towel warmer will need a hydronic installation pack. The 8” installation pack is great for piping coming from the wall and the 24” installation pack is perfect for piping coming from the floor. It is likely that in either case these pipes will need to be cut down to fit the space. These installation packs replace the standard copper pipe with a pipe that matches the colour of your new towel warmer and a shroud to neaten things up.

To put this in a real life situation: If you have a modern style bathroom with piping coming from a wall and you don’t care about seeing the level of heat and just want a basic valve, you would order the regular angle valve with the 8” hydronic installation pack in whichever finish you need to match your towel warmer.

We hope this helps to clear up any confusion with ordering a hydronic towel warmer, but if not, don’t worry – give us a call and we can help you out.

B9921 Calma Vessel Sink Vivaldi Plus

A Short History of Sinks

Vessel sinks are everywhere these days and we thought we would shine some light on this bathroom feature’s history, beauty and practicality!

The popularity of vessel sinks appeals to the traditionalist as well as to the innovator. It reminds us of the old basins and pitchers and yet allows us to take advantage of modern materials and create elegant, inspirational and durable designs. Whimsical or practical, elegant or massive – the choice is yours. Rather than a boring sink that matches your toilet and tub, you can now make the sink the focal point of your personal creation. Vessel sinks are beautiful, practical and let you express your personal style!

The History of Vessels, Sinks, and Basins

Basins… have been around since the beginning of civilization – an indentation in rock served as a washbasin for our forefathers. Our English word basin comes from the old French word baçon, meaning shallow vessel or dish. Those basins were just basins and didn’t have a drain or plug or other conveniences. What we call sinks are in fact ‘basins’ from which the water ‘sinks’.
The term sink likely comes from the old English term ‘sincan’ – to become submerged, go under, or subside. Originally it referred to the place to where the contents of your basin would sink.
Which brings us to vessel. This term comes from the old Latin ‘vascellum’ meaning vase or urn or ship.

All in all, just as words adapt through time, so do style and design trends. Which is why classic, elegant, conversation-starting vessel sinks are today’s best choice.

Our Calma Collection

ICO carries a line of vessel sinks called Calma. The name Calma recognizes that, for most of us, our bathrooms should be a relaxing retreat from the daily hustle, a place of relaxation. A place of calm.

Quality Control

We are committed to quality. From concept to design and solution, our vision is to provide an inspiring range of modern, contemporary products to every house in North America. Each of our products has been created for a specific look and feel to suit the needs of architects, interior designers and individuals who appreciate sophistication and substance.

To keep in line with our beliefs, each and everyone of our towel warmers goes through a strict quality control assessment before being carefully packaged and sent out to you. Our warehouse team start by carefully assessing the finish of the product. They check for dents, dings, scratches and shine. The next step is to make sure that the towel warmer can warm up your towels – each one is tested to ensure correct heating. If anything is wrong that cannot be shone, buffed or fixed, the towel warmer does not leave the warehouse.

The final step is packaging our products to ensure that they arrive at their destination in perfect condition. The towel warmer is carefully placed in a protective wrapping of Styrofoam around the back, sides and top. This packaging protects from scratches and damage during shipment. Along with the towel warmer, we also include mounting brackets and any other hardware needed. These extra items are carefully placed between the towel warmers bars so you can’t miss them when unwrapping your new towel warmer.

We back our products and stand by our quality – if you ever receive a shipment that is less than perfect, we want to hear from you. You can call us at 877-757-8930 or email our amazing customer service team at cs@icobath.com.

CosyFloor Brochures - All About CosyFloor Infloor Heating

All About CosyFloor!

Heated flooring has become a popular addition to homes throughout North America and if you have ever felt one, you will understand why. There is something special about being able to walk around barefoot and not have your feet touch anything cold. Not only does CosyFloor heat your floor, but it also creates ambient heat to help the whole room warm up.

Our CosyFloor cable systems can go under almost any flooring so you don’t have to compromise on style in order to get the comfort you want. Imagine stepping into your master bathroom and instead of feeling cold tile first thing in the morning you are greeted with a warm touch. Our cable system is suitable for rooms of any shape or configuration due to its versatility.

If you are looking for quick installation, our mat system is for you. All you need to do is roll it out and hook it up. The cables are adhered to a rolled mat spaced at 3” apart, the ideal spacing to ensure equally heated flooring. This system is great for large areas and ideal for standard room layouts.

If you are worried you won’t have enough juice in your electrical system to power these systems, you don’t need to. With our master/slave unit controller units the power needed can be spread over multiple breakers for efficient power usage. This also allows for zoning capabilities throughout larger heated floor layouts.

For an added touch of ease, we have introduced our wifi and touchscreen thermostats! Our wifi enabled touchscreen thermostat can even be controlled from your phone! Both the wifi touchscreen and touchscreen thermostat include air and floor temperature settings for your optimal heating goals. Our wifi and touchscreen enabled thermostats can run multiple programs so you and your family can have heated floors when you need them. For those who like to keep it simple, we offer a programmable thermostat controlled solely with buttons on the device, no need phone apps or wifi.

Bathroom renovations only happen once about every 20 years, so when you are considering your flooring think about adding the luxury of in-floor heating. Avoid the regret on cold mornings… live with the luxury now.

What Kind Of Towel Warmer Is Right For You Blog Post

What Kind Of Towel Warmer Is Right For You?

There are a few different options to choose from when selecting a towel warmer and it might feel overwhelming at first, but with a few easy questions, we will help you find the towel warmer of your dreams!

  1. Is the towel warmer going to be used as a secondary heat source or only to warm towels?
      1. There are two different heating varieties of towel warmers, liquid-filled and electrical wire.

    Liquid filled towel warmers will not only warm your towel but will also act as a secondary heat source in whichever room it is added to.

    The electrical wire towel warmers will create enough heat to dry and warm your towel but cannot act as a secondary heat source.

  2. How much do you want to spend?
      1. We have 2 brands of towel warmers, Tuzio and Kontour.

    Our Kontour line is our economical line and prices range from $300-$700. These towel warmers are a great product at a great price. Keep in mind that Kontour towel warmers are heated by electric wire and cannot act as a secondary heat source.

    The Tuzio towel warmers are higher end towel warmers and prices range from $700-$3,000. This brand can also act as a secondary heat source.

  3. How can I power my towel warmer?
      1. There are three options to power your towel warmer; plug-in, hardwire and hydronic.

    The plug-in option is great if you don’t want to open your wall to access the electrical. The towel warmer is simply plugged in and turned on when you want to use it.

    The Hardwire option is great if you are renovating or building and the finishing touches in the home are not yet done. With this option, the towel warmer is wired directly into your homes electrical system. Hardwire allows you to hide the cord with a decorative tube and the towel warmer can be controlled using a programmable digital timer.

    Hydronic Heating is the final option. This is possible if you have a boiler in your home and can create a separate line to the towel warmer. Hydronic heating is great as no electrical elements are needed.

Once you have the technical decisions made, it’s time for the fun part… picking the size, style and finish!
