Montalto Estate Co Down

Multicolumn Radiators & Runtal Rad

From humble beginnings in the 1700’s to the recent renovations, Montalto House and Estate are steeped in history.

Montalto is a privately owned Estate nestled in the picturesque surroundings of the County Down countryside. The Estate has been a family home for centuries. Montalto offers you the exclusive use of a 400-acre private Irish estate with the services you would expect from the greatest 5 and 6 star hotels throughout the world.

Montalto is convenient to Ireland’s airports, famous links golf courses and the attractions of nearby Belfast. Yet this special hideaway is so private, it is one of Ireland’s best kept secrets.

You become the Lord or Lady of the manor with the attention of your personal butler, the scrumptious food of renowned chefs and the hands-on management of one of Ireland’s most respected hospitality professionals.

Heating Solution

Versatile were delighted to supply Mini Canal DBE ( Dynamic Boost Effect) trench heating, which was installed in the perimeter areas of the building and reception areas. The Mini Canal features Jaga’s low-mass Low-H20 heat exchanger, guaranteeing fast response, outstanding thermal efficiency, and an even, comfortable distribution of warm air.


The unobtrusive Mini Canal DBE trench heating finished with rigid aluminium grilles was discreetly set underfoot, ensuring more free space.

For an instant temperature lift, DBE provides a quick boost of heat.
