    Hi guys

    I have removed two old radiators and looking to replace them. A plumber will be installing them I am just buying the ones to be installed.

    I have measured my old radiators and they were:

    600mm x 1040mm the width from the pipe ends on the radiator was 1075mm

    600mm x 1490mm the width from the pipe ends on the radiator was 1515mm

    I am looking to replace these with the following two and am not sure if they will fit the current pipes:

    http://www.bestheating.com/milano-a...-designer-double-radiator-635mm-x-1411mm.html

    The above say "Pipe Centres 1100mm (approx)" and "Pipe Centres 1510mm (approx)" is this what I need to compare to the 1075mm and 1515mm that I measured?

    Thanks.

    I really would not worry about it!

    It is not just the distance between the pipes that counts but the distance of the connections from the wall. If the Radiators fit without pipe alteration then great. But most likely your plumber will be able get over any alignment changes.
