We here at Amba want to make sure that we have enough product variety to appeal to a wide audience — from the single-panel Elory, to the freestanding Solo models, each collection offers a unique style and different levels of heating. We often though get the question: what is the difference between the Jeeves collection and the Radiant.
The Jeeves collection features a classic towel bar design featuring liquid-filled round bars. These electric models are made in South Africa from locally sourced, 100% recyclable stainless steel. You have a variety of shapes and sizes to choose from, with the option of straight or gently curved horizontal cross bars. All models are available in 4 finishes: polished and brushed stainless steel, oil rubbed bronze, and white.
The Radiant collection is an affordable, wall-mounted heated towel rack made in China. We offer a round or square bar design, with straight or curved horizontal bars, & unlike the Jeeves collection we offer this model in both hardwired and plug-in versions. Made of high quality 304 stainless steel, they come in Brushed & Polished stainless steel finishes. Using Dry Element Technology to heat, it takes only 15-20 minutes for the unit to heat up. The integrated on/off switch with pilot light allows direct control of the unit. Rated at 150 watts, equivalent to a few light bulbs, they are not big power consumers.
Another big difference is in the available warranties:
- The Jeeves Collection includes a 10 year warranty on construction of unit and a 2 year warranty on heating element which can be replaced.
- The Radiant Collection is warrantied for 2 years on the complete unit.
