VALOR ARDEN FIRE GRATE - PART NUMBER AFS1078
You have found recently that stock availability of the Valor Arden Fire grate - AFS1078 is non existent? This is because in fact that the grate has now become an obsolete item, meaning that it will no longer be produced. The product was classed as obsolete in January 2020. We bought all the remaining stock which has now been sold. As of February 2020 we believe there to only be a few grates left on eBay which are being sold for double the RRP price.
Whilst all other parts are still widely available thanks to the fact that the baffle, bricks etc cross paths with other stoves so they are staying available for the foreseeable future. The grate unfortunately was unique to that stove and has therefore been dropped.
HOWEVER this does not mean the end. After discussions with the manufacturers and confirming that there was nothing in the pipeline to bring this back we have worked on designing and manufacturing our own aftermarket grate suitable for the stove.
We have produced a prototype that a very kind customer of ours agreed to test for us and after a few alterations to the design it has now been given the thumbs up from our customer.
We are therefore happy to announce that our new style grate suitable for the Valor Arden stove will be available around the 1st April 2020. We believe that the grate will in fact be an upgraded grate and should provide a longer lasting product.
