Cast Iron Waffle Top Grate Only - Large 457mm x 300mm max (Adjustable)
Rather than use a full universal coal grate system, this item is just the plain and simple cast iron "waffle" grid type top grate only.
No legs, no retainer bar - it's just a grate as shown. Easy to adjust to the size you need by cutting down with an angle grinder if required.
I suggest you double check the final size and make a cardboard mock up first to avoid mistakes !
This grate is 457mm x 300mm approx. Smaller version is also available in our shop.
Use on top of of an old burnt out stove / open fire coal grate (when originals are no longer available) to see you through another winter ...or modify to custom make your own replacement parts. You can even make side wings / supports and bolt through the holes
PLEASE make sure you ALWAYS season / cure new cast iron parts as you would with new stove.
For best lifespan, NEVER burn wood and coal TOGETHER at the same time. This is what they do in foundries to melt metals and drastically shortens the lifespan of parts. Burn wood on a bed of ash (use a metal plate on top of the coal grate if it isn't a removable one) and coal / smokeless fuel on a coal grate with clear air space above ashes. Be sure to empty ash pans under coal grates daily and don't allow ashes to bank up under bars.
Coal grates, baffles and lining panels are classed as consumable spare parts
