We have a new towel warmer, which I believe would not technically comply with codes in the U.S. Electrical connections need to be inside junction boxes, unless I'm mistaken, and this towel warmer does not include a junction box. So it looks like the connection would need to be made inside the faceplate of the towel warmer mounting bracket, from what I see in these instructions.
I've seen a lot of towel warmers without junction boxes included (some have them), so it's unclear where the connection is supposed to be made. (I've also seen nobody complaining online about failing an inspection due to a towel warmer.) Are all these towel warmers being sold in the U.S. violating code if they are hard wired?
Or is there a water proof faceplate I can buy made for this situation?
Also, our town requires metal conduit which further complicates things.
Here is a picture of a different towel warmer with a junction box that would be code compliant I think:
