Why Choose A Milano Radiator?

There are many reasons to choose a Milano radiator – from high heat outputs to premium quality and comprehensive guarantees.

We uncover all there is to know about Milano heating products, so you can be assured you are investing in a quality product that will last for many years.

Leading UK heating brand

Milano are a UK leading heating brand with over 30 years’ experience in the industry, and their comprehensive range includes radiators, heated towel rails, underfloor heating, radiator valves and accessories – everything you require to heat your home in a stylish and efficient way.

All Milano heating products are made to the very highest of standards. They combine impressive heat output and efficiency, with great durability and the latest designs. Milano are committed to providing affordable quality, and their reputation as a UK brand continues to go from strength to strength.

High heat outputs

Each Milano radiator boasts a high heat output that will quickly transform your chosen room into a warm and inviting space. Before choosing a new radiator, it’s important to work out the required BTUs (British Thermal Units) to heat your room effectively.

You can use a BTU calculator to work out this figure, or measure the length, width and height of the room in meters and note this down. You will also need to take into account the heat loss – are there any windows or doors, and are the windows single or double glazed?

As an example, if a family bathroom with a double-glazed window measures 2.72m L x 2.39m W x 2.4m H, then you will require a radiator with a BTU output of 1975.

At Big Bathroom Shop, on each radiator product page, you’ll find details of each radiators BTU output, so you know how powerful the appliance will be.

Premium quality

All Milano radiators are made to the highest quality to ensure long lasting durability, and are tested and certified to EN442 standards. They are constructed from either steel or aluminium.

Milano uses premium gauge steel for their steel radiators. This steel thickness has a solid, heavy feel, and is durable and reliable, which is why you can be assured your Milano radiator will stand the test of time.

Aluminium radiators contain less water and can easily be recycled.

They reach their highest temperature faster than a radiator made from steel, which helps to save money on energy bills.

Aluminium radiators are also lightweight yet durable, making them suitable for any type of internal or external wall.

Variety of designs to enhance any interior

Whether you want to create an on-trend look or prefer something more timeless, Milano have all styles covered to enhance any interior.

For a classic look, the Windsor column radiators are perfect, but for something more contemporary, choose the popular Aruba or Alpha.

For an ultra-minimalist look, the Riso is a great option. Plus, there’s a variety of finishes to take your pick from too including white, black, anthracite and even orange, plus many more coloured radiators to choose from.

A size to suit any space

From a compact 300 x 600mm to a large 635 x 1647mm, and everything in-between, the Milano radiator collection has a size to suit any space, whether that’s a small cloakroom or a spacious living room.

Plumbed, electric & dual fuel models

Milano offer both plumbed and electric radiators to suit any installation requirement.

Many electric radiators are supplied with a Bluetooth heating element, and are pre-filled with a water based heating solution called glycol, which helps to reduce rust, noise and limescale.

Electric radiators are ideal for where plumbed radiators are not an option such as in apartments, or for where the pipework cannot be extended in loft conversions or extensions for example.

We also supply a range of dual fuel radiators and towel rails that feature both plumbed and electric heating options.

Vertical and horizontal installation options

In addition to an array of sizes, styles and finishes, there’s also vertical and horizontal installation options.

So, if you need to heat a room, but there’s limited wall space, the Milano range of vertical radiators offer the perfect solution.

Horizontal radiator designs have always been a popular choice, but more homeowners and interior designers are going for a vertical style.

Coordinating valves

Of course, your new Milano radiator wouldn’t be complete without valves, that’s why there’s a wide range to choose from for a coordinating look.

There’s angular and straight radiator valves, as well as manual and thermostatic in modern and traditional styles.

Extensive guarantees

Milano offer extensive guarantees of up to 20 years across all their radiators for added peace of mind.

The lengthy guarantees that Milano offer are an indicator of the quality of the materials used and the build of all their radiators.

Milano Torr - Dry Heat Smart Electric Heater

Milano Electric Radiators

Milano electric radiators are ideal for where a central heating connection is not possible, such as in apartments and extensions.

You can manage several devices simultaneously, and program as many heating cycles as you wish. The heating cycles can be assigned to specific devices, and you can personalise the settings of each element such as the time and desired temperature.
