INTRODUCTION
SAFETY
A fireguard conforming to BS 8423: 2002 should
be used in the presence of children and old/or
infirm people. If the appliance is used with the fire
door open, a spark guard conforming to BS 3248
should be fitted.
Do not use aerosol sprays or any other flame
near the appliance under fire.
Do not fit an extractor fan in the same room as
the appliance.
Fire cement is caustic, hand and eye protection
should always be worn, prolonged contact with
the skin should be avoided.
Arada Ltd will not be responsible for any
consequential or incidental loss or injury
however caused.
Before continuing any further with the installation
of this appliance please read the following guide to
manual handling.
• Always obtain assistance when lifting the
appliance.
• When lifting always keep your back straight.
Bend your legs not your back.
• Avoid twisting at the waist. It is better to
reposition your feet.
• Avoid upper body/top heavy bending. Do not
lean forwards or sideways when
handling the fire.
• Always grip with the palms of your hands.
Do not use fingertips for support.
• Always keep the stove as close to the body as
possible. This will minimise the cantilever
action.
• Use gloves to provide additional grip.
THE PRINCIPLE OF THE FIRE
Your Stratford stove is built to the highest standard
of craftsmanship using the best materials and the
most modern equipment available. It is a highly
efficient and sophisticated piece of machinery and
when properly installed and operated it should provide a lifetime of heating satisfaction.
Stratford Tf & Ti Multifuel Boiler Stoves
Safety is the most important consideration when
installing your fire. If not properly installed and
operated a house fire may result. Installation must
comply with the Building Regulations and conform
to all relevant fire safety standards.
Arada produce a variety of appliances ranging
from units, which are traditional in style to stoves
which are modern in appearance, all
bristling
with "High Tech" features.
Model types include simple room heaters,
convectors, integral boiler models and inset units.
Your Stratford stove is constructed from either single or twin wall steel strengthened where necessary.
Cast iron is used where appropriate for decorative
features.
All fire doors are fitted with special high
temperature ceramic glass panels through which
the fire can be viewed.
Multifuel stoves are fitted with a cast iron grate to
give full multifuel facility and positive de-ashing.
All models except integral boiler models are lined
with firebricks or heat reflective panels which
ensure complete combustion and provide a good
heat store to even out fluctuations in burning.
An internal throat plate produces turbulence to
encourage secondary combustion and directs the
flue gas around the whole upper firebox before
allowing it to escape up the chimney.
On multifuel appliances the primary air for burning
enters the ash pit chamber beneath the grate,
controlled by the air inlet mechanism.
Stratford stoves are also fitted with an "air wash" so
called because it provides a curtain of high speed
preheated air behind the glass to help keep it clean
and to provide secondary air/over draught.
The provision of two inlets on all multifuel stoves
gives a wide range of primary air/secondary air,
under draught/over draught combinations. The
optimum settings will only be established by
experience in firing the appliance, and will depend
on type of fuel, the position of the appliance in the
house, condition of chimney etc.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
MULTIFUEL GRATE
AARROW AIR WASH SYSTEM
The Aarrow Multifuel grate comprises of a series of
reciprocating cast iron bars seated on a pivoted
"comb". These should come fitted in your stove, if
not please refer to page 16 for fitting and operation
and also operating instructions on fuels for correct
settings of the grate.
The air wash has an internal sliding plate with slots,
housed in a cover plate, and is located above the
fire door. Sliding the control shaft to the right as far
as it will go achieves the fully open position.
Sliding it to the left will shut off the air inlet slots.
The operating tool should be used to tap the control
shaft to the desired setting.
AIR INLET CONTROLS
Stratford multifuel stoves have three air inlets:
•The air wash system (so called because its
pre-heated high speed air washes across the inner
face of the door glass, keeping it clear), which
provides over draught, and
•The primary air inlet providing under draught to
the base of the fire chamber through the gap
between the body and the ash pit door.
•Most importantly on the Stratford Boiler stoves is
the thermostatic control system.
Please note partial opening of the ash door will
over-ride and negate the thermostatic control.
THERMOSTATIC CONTROL
Stratford Tf Integral Boilers have a
thermostatically controlled side air inlet, beneath an
access plate.
The damper plate at the rear/side of the appliance
regulates the amount of under draught entering,
depending on the setting of the thermostat control
knob (located at the bottom front on the left hand
side of the unit) and the temperature of the water
transmitted through the sensor phial in the water
jacket.
Stratford Tf and Ti with the ash door fully shut,
the settings range from 0 (fully anti-clockwise) a
shut-off setting at which the damper will shut off
the underdraught completely, causing the fire to die
down and in time go out, to 8 (fully clockwise) the
highest setting at which the appliance will burn
fiercely and produce very high outputs.
For more information on the Ti inset model please
see page 20.
Note: The area around the thermostat, both inside
at the back of the firebox and externally, must be
cleared of ash and other debris regularly.
(See page 13). For setting instructions refer to
"Checking Thermostat" on page 19 .

Fig. 1 Fully Closed
Fig. 2 Fully Open
Note: Opening or part opening of the ash door is
controlled by the "interlock" device located in the
front of the unit (refer to INTERLOCK section on
page 9). Even when all the slots are completely shut
a "bleed" of secondary air will be maintained
ensuring that inflammable gases are burnt off.
DISASSEMBLE AIR WASH
The Stratford air wash may be disassembled for
cleaning or adjustment. To achieve this, the
following procedure should be followed:
This should only be carried out when the fire is cold
and unlit.
•Support Air wash cover with one hand
•Move cover up by smartly tapping the bottom with
a hammer. (Fig. 3)
•Remove assembly from appliance.
•Clean and/or adjust.
•Refit using reverse procedure.

Stratford Tf & Ti Multifuel Boiler Stoves
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
INTERLOCK SYSTEM
DOOR TRIM
Stratford Tf and Ti Multifuel Boiler Stoves are
fitted with an "interlock" system. A situation where
the fire door is closed and the ash door is open may
lead to serious overfiring which could damage the
appliance. Correct use of the doors and interlock
system will ensure that this does not happen.
Stratford fire doors are fitted with a brushed steel
finish trim as standard. This clips on to the small
lugs at the top and bottom of the aperture in the cast
iron fire door, as a "spring fit". When fitted, the trim
locks the glass retaining clips in position. (Fig 5)
Operation is as follows:
A pivoted lug prevents closure of the fire door,
unless the ash door has been shut first. When the
fire door is shut the ash door knob can be turned
anti-clockwise by up to 95 degrees creating a
variable gap between the top of the ash door and the
body, through which primary combustion air can
enter the appliance.
The fire door should be removed so that the above
operations can be carried out on a workbench or
similar. Remove the door by GENTLY tapping the
door upwards; this will lift off of its hinges.
Note: In order to turn the ash door knob
sufficiently for the catch to release and permit the
ash door to be opened fully THE FIRE DOOR
MUST BE OPENED FIRST.
MULTI PURPOSE OPERATING
TOOL
Your Stratford stove comes with a multi-purpose
operating tool which is used to open the ashpit
door, riddling, setting the multifuel grate position
and for emptying the ash pan. (see fig.4)
Trim Fit Fig 5
FIRE DOOR GLASS
If necessary the glass can be removed as follows
Step 1 Remove the brushed steel finish trim by
pressing on the curved edge at the top until the trim
can be disengaged from the lugs.
Step 2 Slide the two glass retainer clips on one side
only, inwards, towards the centre of the door as far
as they will go.
Fig. 4
RIDDLING
Use the operating tool for setting the grate in the
coal burning position or the wood burning position.
This means that effective de-ashing takes place,
and also allows the grate to be set in the coal
burning or wood burning position, as indicated on
the right hand side of the appliance.
Stratford Tf & Ti Multifuel Boiler Stoves
Step 3 Pull this side of the glass away from the door
casting, easing the tags on the glass retaining clips
past the edge of the aperture in the door casting.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Step 4 Remove the glass completely. Store glassretaining clips and white gasket (if sound) safely
for re-use.
•Gently tap the two hinge pins in a direction to
compensate for the misalignment.(fig 7)
Step 5 Follow this procedure in reverse to fit
replacement door glass or gasket.

•Refit the door and check to ensure it now sits
square to the body; if not repeat above steps.
Raising the door as follows:
•When the appliance is cold, open the fire door so
that it is at a right angle to the front.
•Lift the fire door up off the hinges.
Fig. 6
•Drop one washer on the top and bottom hinge pin.
DOOR ADJUSTMENT
•Refit the door and check to ensure door is free of
the interlock. If not remove and repeat fitting
second washer.
The catch can be adjusted by sharply tapping the
catch on the inside of the door.
FUEL RETAINER BARS
Once the appliance has been under fire for a period
of time the fire door may appear to have moved out
of alignment with relation to the door aperture or
catch on the door interlock mechanism. This is
quite normal and due to the settling of the casing.
The fire door can be re-aligned by the user as
follows:
Fuel retainer bars are supplied with the fires.
For wood burning, 1 fuel retainer bar is used,
affording a better view of the fire. Slide and lift the
bar until it is clear of the guides at each side, and
remove through the fire door opening.
The bars are symmetrical and of even lengths
making incorrect fitting impossible.
Note: This operation should only be carried out
when the appliance is unlit and cold.
•When the appliance is cold, open the fire door so
that it is at a right angle to the front face of the fire.
•Lift the fire door up off the hinges.

Stratford Tf & Ti Multifuel Boiler Stoves
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
FUEL TYPES
Wood- Any type of wood is suitable provided it is
well seasoned and has a moisture content below
20%. This usually implies that the timber has been
suitably stored to allow moisture to evaporate for at
least nine months in the case of soft woods, and at
least eighteen months in the case of hard wood. We
recommend that for general burning, wood should
be split into logs of no more than 130mm (5")
diameter.
Larger logs can be used for overnight burning.
WARNING wet wood must not be used as this will
greatly contribute to the creation of tar and creosote
which may, in extreme cases, run down the
chimney in liquid form. This will seriously damage
both the chimney and the appliance, and increase
the risk of chimney fire.
Note: If you have sticky tar inside the appliance or
chimney your wood is 'Green' or too wet.
Recommended Reading:
"Wood as Fuel" available from the Forestry
Commission.
Peat- Can be used in turf or briquette form, but
again the moisture content must be low.
Paper- paper will burn successfully. Burn dry
paper only or chimney damage will occur.
NEVER BURN PLASTICS OR WASTE IN
YOUR STOVE.
Coal - Household coal produces a large amount of
ash and smoke. If used the appliance and chimney
will require frequent cleaning. Therefore soft house
coal is not recommended.
Recommended fuels are as follows:
The Hetas Ltd, "Three Tick" appliance approval
only covers the use of the following fuels in this
appliance;Phurnacite, Phurnacite Plus, Centurion,
Maxibrite, Extracite, Pureheat, Blazebrite,
Taybrite, Sunbrite (Doubles/Singles), Anthracite
(Large Nuts), and Welsh Dry Steam Coal
(Large/Small Nuts).
Stratford Tf & Ti Multifuel Boiler Stoves
Approval does not cover the use of other fuels
either alone or mixed with the suitable fuels listed
above, nor does it cover instructions for the use of
other fuels.For latest details please refer to Hetas
website www.hetas.co.uk.
Do not use Homefire (six sided) and smaller sizes
than Stovesse, e.g. Beans, Peas,Grains.
Do not use petroleum based solid products such
as Calco or Petrocoke.
To do so will invalidate the appliance guarantee
LIGHTING THE FIRE
Prior to lighting the fire for the first time check
with the installer that:
•Installation and all building work is complete.
•The chimney is sound and has been swept and is
free from obstruction.
•Adequate provision for combustion air has
been made, i.e. a permanent vent of at least
550mm² per kW of rated output above 5 kW,
is fitted in the room in which the appliance
is installed.
•That Building Regulations and any local
by-laws have been followed during installation
(see installation instructions).
•Throat plate is in place.
•Ensure that the system is full of water and
vented, and precautions have been taken to
prevent corrosion
(see installation Instructions).
•That the chimney draw has been checked and is
within specification. With the chimney warm the
draught should be between 1 - 2mm water gauge
(0.1 - 0.2mbar).
WARNING: An over drawing chimney can cause
over-firing resulting in damage to the appliance.
WARNING: Do not light the fire if it is suspected
that any part of the water system is frozen.
11
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE READ &
UNDERSTOOD THESE INSTRUCTIONS
BEFORE LIGHTING THE FIRE.
ALWAYS WEAR SUITABLE PROTECTIVE
FIRE GLOVES WHEN REFUELLING YOUR
STOVE.
SOLID FUEL BURNING
•Set the grate to ‘coal’ position.
•Ensure that the ash pan is in position and the fire
doors are closed.
•Set the air wash to one quarter open position.
•Set the thermostat control knob to position 8
•Light in the normal manner with paper and
kindling, or use a fire lighter.
•If using a gas poker be sure to remove it
immediately the fire is alight.
•When the fire is well alight regulate the burning
rate by adjusting the setting on the thermostat
control knob
•The air wash can be opened sufficiently to keep
the door glass clean
BURNING WOOD
•Set air wash to fully open position.
•Proceed as for solid fuel but note the fire will burn
up and become established more quickly.
MIXED FUELS
•As per coal but allow additional secondary air.
ANTHRACITE
Anthracite is more difficult to keep in for long
periods, consequently more care in setting the
controls and some familiarisation is necessary
when burning anthracite.
Use the smallest size fuel (Stovesse or Small Nuts).
Proceed as for manufactured smokeless fuel. Leave
the air inlet control open about a quarter or less.
Note: The high temperature paint acquires
durability by being "cured" during the initial
firings of the appliance will give off fumes which
are non-toxic, but which certain persons may find
have an unpleasant or irritant effect. Ensure that
the area is well ventilated during this time.
12
OVERNIGHT BURNING
The appliance will burn overnight provided:
•Sufficient fuel is placed in the firebox.
•The controls are set correctly.
•Excess draught is not present in the chimney.
•Close the door.
•If the fire goes out with unburnt fuel left in the
firebox increase the thermostat setting, and vice
versa.
In the morning
Open the air control fully until embers begin to
glow brightly and place pieces of fuel on the fire
until it is well established.
WARNING: When wood is burnt slowly in a
closed appliance it produces moisture and tar,
which will create condensation and deposits in the
chimney. This effect can be minimised by burning
hard for a short period, about 20 minutes, twice a day.
It is usually convenient to do this morning and night.
Note: To avoid chimney problems your fire should
not be burnt slowly for longer than 12 hours
without a period of fast burning.
WARNING: Properly installed, with a suitable
flue and chimney and operated and maintained
this appliance will not emit fumes into the
dwelling. Occasional fumes from the de-ashing
and re-fuelling may occur. However, persistent
fume emission is potentially dangerous and must
be investigated by a Hetas registered installer.
Stop using the appliance if you smell fumes or
see smoke escaping.
If fume emission does persist, the following
immediate actions should be taken.
•Open doors and windows to ventilate room.
•Let the fire die or extinguish and safely
dispose of fuel from the appliance.
•Check for flue or chimney blockage, and
clean if required.
Seek expert advice from your HETAS registered
installer. Do not attempt to re-light the fire until the
cause of the fume emission has been identified and
corrected.
Stratford Tf & Ti Multifuel Boiler Stoves
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
ASH REMOVAL
The ash pan should be emptied at least twice a day
or when the level of ash reaches the top of the ash
pan. On no account should the ash be allowed to
build up to touch the grate as this will greatly
shorten its life.
brigade. A chimney fire may cause structural
damage of the chimney. Do not use the appliance
until the chimney and connector have been
inspected and any damaged parts repaired or
replaced. This should be done by a competent person
such as a HETAS registered engineer.
DE - ASHING
CLEANING
It is necessary to maintain an ash layer on the upper
surface of the grate bars, in order to protect them so
de-ashing should cease as soon as the first red
embers drop into the ash pan. Further de-ashing
will cause heat build-up under the grate, which will
considerably shorten its life. This operation should
be carried out with the doors closed to prevent dust
escaping into the room.
•Move up and down vigorously the riddling lever
(ash will fall into the ash pan beneath the grate).
•When de-ashing is complete re-set grate to
previous position.
• Empty ash pan.
Note: Do not force the riddling lever.
IMPORTANT
TO EMPTY THE ASH PAN
Open the fire door; open the ash door. Fit the fork
end of the operating tool into the ash pan and
remove from the ash pit chamber.
WARNING: The ash can be very hot. Empty only
to a metal container. Even if the ash appears cold,
red-hot pieces of ash may be concealed and could
easily start a fire or cause an injury. Replace the ash
pan and close ash door. Close the fire down.
CLINKER
The formation of clinker suggests that the unit is
being over-fired. Any clinker forming on the grate
should be removed when cold.
OVER-FIRING
Do not over fire your appliance. Using flammable
liquids or too much wood or firing the fire at
maximum for prolonged periods may result in
over-firing. If the chimney connector or casing
glows red it is being over-fired. If this occurs
immediately close all air inlets to the appliance to
reduce the air supply to the fire. Should a chimney
fire occur immediately close the appliance down.
Get everyone out of the house and call the fire
Stratford Tf & Ti Multifuel Boiler Stoves
Under some circumstances soot can quickly build
up on the throat plate and adjacent areas. The throat
plate should be removed and checked monthly, and
any debris stripped off. Similarly, clean the upper
surface of the firebox.
Refer to page 16 for instructions on throat plate
removal/inspection.
IF ASH BUILDS UP AROUND THE
THERMOSTAT OPENING.
1.Make sure the fire is unlit and cold.
2.Remove the access plate. (See page 19)
Carefully clean the cold ash from the thermostat
using a vacuum cleaner. Re-fit the access cover.
Also the area to the left hand side of the firebox
should be swept clean.
WARNING PERFORM THESE OPERATIONS
WHEN THE STOVE IS UNLIT AND COLD.
ACCESSORIES
STANDS
Elegant stands are available for the Stratford
free-standing fires. (Stands are not available for the
inset models). These increase the height of the
appliance and rear flue outlet by approximately:
Tf 30 by 125mm

Tf 70 by 135mm
Tf 90 by 140mm
TRACERIES
For added decorative effect, beautiful door traceries
are available for the complete Stratford fires range.
PAINT
Matching aerosol paint to tone in any connecting
flues, pipes or surrounding metalwork.
13
SERVICING
MAINTENANCE
It is important that your fire is regularly serviced in
accordance with these instructions. This should be
carried out at least annually by a qualified person
and should consist of the following:
When the appliance is cold and unlit ensure to
remove the firebrick liners and throat plate. Inspect
all gasketing on doors, glass etc., and re-order any
items that may need replacing, from your Aarrow
dealer. With a wire brush clean inside the appliance
paying particular attention to the small inlet holes
of the air wash on the inside, above the fire door
and to the door. With Ti40 models ensure to sweep
up around the damper flap regularly to avoid ash
build up.
Sweep the chimney and confirm that it is sound.
Examine all joints in the flue pipe etc., and re-seal
if necessary. Reassemble and leave with the air
inlet and air wash control about half way open. This
will allow a free flow of air through the appliance
thus preventing moisture and condensation from
building up inside the fire and chimney.
CHIMNEY SWEEPING
Sweeping should be carried out with an appropriate
sized bristle brush and rods to suit chimney size and
type. As with all appliances regular sweeping of the flue
is essential to avoid the danger of blockage and the
escape of poisonous fumes. Access for cleaning should
also be incorporated in the chimney (e.g. soot door or
access through register plate).
Any existing chimney should be swept prior to
installation of the appliance, and swept again a
second time within one month of regular use after
installation to establish frequency of sweeping
required. This should be done by a competent
person such as a NACS chimney engineers who
will provide a Certificate of Chimney Sweeping.
Sweep the whole flue way, including the outlet, at
least twice per burning season. It is important that
the flue ways, flue pipe and chimney be cleaned
prior to lighting the fire after a prolonged
shut-down period.
14
DOOR GLASS
The door glass should remain clear during normal
daytime burning. However under certain conditionssuch as burning at a low rate with damp wood, or
overnight burning, the glass may become somewhat
blackened. To remedy this, operate the appliance at a fast
rate. Alternatively when the stove is cold open the door
and clean the inside face of the glass with a damp cloth
or with glass cleaner (available from fire stockists). A
piece of cloth moistened with vinegar and dipped in
wood ash - not coal ash - will provide a good soft
scourer to remove the soot without scratching the glass.
OUTER FINISH
The outside finish of the appliance is a durable high
temperature paint. It is best cleaned by brushing
down with a clean shoe brush. Do not allow
moisture to remain on the appliance whilst cold or
surface rust may form.
The high temperature paint should not require
attention for some time, depending on use. The
hotter the fire burns the sooner repainting will be
necessary. Aerosol tins of paint are available for
complete refurbishing. Before repainting make sure
that the fire is out and is cold.
•Remove the door glass.
•Lightly wire brush, or rub with wire wool, the
body of the appliance to remove any loose paint
powder.
•Mask or remove items such as brass work.
•Any adjacent brickwork, mantelpiece, hearth,
etc., should be carefully masked for quite a
distance around the appliance. (this precaution is
to prevent discolouration of the surrounding brick
work, wallpaper etc).
Re-spray in a well-ventilated area - avoid breathing
the vapour. Refer to safety instructions on paint
cans.
•When the paint is dry refit door glass and any
other parts previously removed.
•Leave the appliance for eight hours before
re-lighting.
•Burn slowly for the first four hours, then build up
heat gradually to cure the paint.
Note: Use only genuine Aarrow touch-up spray as
some paints interact. This could ruin the finish
and invalidate the guarantee.

INSTALLATION
GENERAL PRECAUTIONS
Note - All installations must conform to the
appropriate building regulations.
The Building Regulations for England and Wales
2000 ref Approved Document J 2002 edition
(issued by the DTLR).
The Building Standards (Scotland) (Consolidation)
Regulations.
Detailed recommendations for installation of
appliances, chimneys and flues are outlined in the
current issue of the following British Standards:BS6461, BS8303 and BS4543.
Any Manufacturer's Instructions must not be
taken as overriding statutory requirements.
During installation ensure that adequate
precautions are taken to avoid unnecessary risk to
yourself or any householder. In particular the
danger from the caustic nature of the fire cement
should be avoided by using these accepted
methods:
• Wear gloves when handling fire cement.
• Wear goggles when chiselling or looking up
chimneys.
Make sure that Building Regulations are adhered to
during installation along with any local by-laws. In
the case of heating systems make sure that the pipe
work is correctly bonded to ensure electrical
earthing.
HANDLING
By the time you read this you will appreciate the
weight of the appliance. The Safety and handling
guidelines as set out on page 5 of this manual
should be followed.
To make movement easier internal fittings, fuel
retainers, grates, firebox liners, flue outlets, hot
plate, throat plate, etc., can be removed.
Care should be taken to make sure that the hinges
are not damaged during installation.
Stratford Tf & Ti Multifuel Boiler Stoves
HEARTH
The fire should be installed to stand on a
constructional hearth of non-combustible materials
not less than 125mm (5'') thick conforming to
Building Regulations. Dimensions of the hearth
should project at least 300mm (12'') forward of the
front of the appliance and 150mm (6'') at the sides.
The surface of the hearth should be free of
combustible materials. In most buildings with solid
concrete floors the requirement will be met by the
floor itself, but mark the perimeter of the hearth to
ensure floor coverings are kept well away or use
different levels to mark the hearth perimeter.
COMBUSTIBLE MATERIALS
A gap of at least 450mm (18'') should be allowed
between the appliance and any combustible
materials including furnishings. Adjacent walls
should be of suitable non-combustible
construction, preferably brickwork. In large
fireplaces take care that any supporting beam is
protected by a 13mm (0.5'') sheet of
Masterboard/Supalux spaced 13mm (0.5'') off the
surface with strips of non-combustible material
- not wood.
Make sure that there is a gap between an
uninsulated flue system and any combustible
material. This gap must be at least 3 x the outside
diameter of the flue pipe, or 1.5 x the flue diameter
to non combustible surfaces. See the illustration on
page 22.
AIR FOR COMBUSTION
There must always be a permanent means of
providing air for combustion into the room in
which the fire is installed. A permanent vent with a
total free area of at least 550mm for every kW
rated output above 5kw should be connected
directly to the outside air or to an adjacent room
which itself has a permanent vent of the same size
direct to the outside air. The fitting of an extractor
fan to either of these rooms is not recommended.
2
ACCESS TO THERMOSTAT
A gap of 125mm around the body, and 100mm to
the rear of the stove is necessary to enable access to
service & repair the thermostatic control system.
15
INSTALLATION
MULTIFUEL GRATE
GRATE BAR REPLACEMENT
All bars in the grate are identical, but every other
bar is turned through 180 degrees, with the ends of
the bars marked "H" sitting on the high sections of
the comb, and the ends marked "L" sitting on the
low sections.
After extended use it may be necessary to replace
some of the grate bars. Periodic inspection of the
bars is recommended and the removal of any nails
or wire that may be present after burning wood.
All the grate bars in each appliance are identical
and can easily be lifted out after removal of the fuel
retainers.
ASSEMBLING THE GRATE
To assemble the grate, fit bars to low sections of the
comb first, inserting end marked "H" into rear
channel with groove on underside of bar located on
upstand tab, and then lowering end marked "L"
onto the low section of the comb. The upper bar is
fitted in a similar manner, but with the end marked
"L" inserted in the rear channel, and the end
marked "H" seated on the high section of the comb.
Remove damaged grate bars and replace with
casting of the same type, fitting as per instruction
above. (Check Identification letters on the casting
when reordering).
THROAT PLATE INSPECTION
The throat plate for all types of fires consists of a
profiled steel plate with "drop down" facility for
inspection purposes.
THROAT P LATE GUIDE
THROAT P LATE
OP ERATING TOOL
To "drop" the throat plate (Fig.8), engage the
operating tool behind the downstand tab marked
"throat plate" and pull the plate frontward until its
forward lugs drop into the cut-away at the front of
the side panel. Check the upper surface for soot, ash
build-up, etc. Reverse the procedure to return the
throat plate to the working position.
Warning: If the fire is operated with the throat
plate in the down position the air wash will not
operate effectively.

INSTALLATION
FITTING THE FLUE OUTLET AND
HOT PLATE
The flue outlet spigot is found inside the appliance.
The hot plate (blanking plate) is supplied fitted to
the top opening and is removed by turning
clockwise (as is the flue outlet).
Smear a very thin layer of fire cement on the faces
of the flue outlet and the blanking plate. Fit the
outlet to the appliance in the desired position.
Lock into place by rotating anti-clockwise and
tighten by tapping with a block of wood and mallet
from the inside of the appliance. Similarly, fit the
blanking plate to the unused opening. Clean off any
surplus fire cement.
Place appliance on the hearth and make sure that it
is level and does not rock.
Connect the chimney ensuring all joints are sealed
with fire cement.
FLUES AND CHIMNEYS
Please remember that chimney draught is
dependent on four main factors:
• Flue gas temperature.
• Flue height.
• Flue size.
• Flue terminal.
The stove must be connected to a suitable and
efficient flue that provides a good updraught to
safely take the products of combustion (fumes)
from the stove outlet to the outside air. To ensure a
good updraught it is important that the flue gases
are kept warm and that the flue size suits the stove.
The termination of the outlet at the top of the flue
also needs to comply with the Building
Regulations. The minimum effective height of the
flue must be at least 4.5 metres from the top of the
stove to the top of the flue outlet. When warm the
flue draught should be between 0.1 and 0.2 mb.
A chimney may comply with the regulations but
still be subject to down draught and similar
problems. A chimney terminating above the ridge
level is generally less likely to suffer such
problems.
*NOTE
THE FLUE PIPE MUST BE FITTED INSIDE THE OUTLET SPIGOT
FAILURE TO DO SO COULD RESULT IN THE SPILLAGE OF
CONDENSATION ECT. RUNNING DOWN THE FLUE.
Fig. 13 Flue and Spigot Fitting
If a new chimney is being provided it should fully
comply with the relevant Building Regulations that
specify the requirements for solid fuel burning
installations. Suitable types of chimney include the
following.
Masonry chimney built with clay or concrete
liners, or a chimney block system meeting Building
Regulations. These types of chimney should be
installed in accordance with the Building
Regulations and BS 6461: Part 1.
Factory made insulated chimney complying
with BS 4543: Part 2 (often called "Class 1
prefabricated metal chimney"). These types of
chimney should be installed in accordance with the
Building Regulations and BS 7566: Parts 1 to 4.
Stratford Tf & Ti Multifuel Boiler Stoves
17
INSTALLATION
Due to the gradual introduction of European
Chimney Standards chimneys will be specified
according to their performance designation as
defined in BS EN 1443 that covers the General
Requirements for chimneys. The minimum
performance designation required for use with solid
fuel burning stoves is T450 N2 S D3.
The flue and chimney installation must be carefully
checked by a competent person before fitting the
stove to ensure it is suitable and will work safely.
If the chimney is old (ie built of brick or stone
without a liner) or being opened up for reuse
additional checks and smoke testing as described in
Appendix E of the Approved Document J 2002
Edition should also be carried out to ensure the flue
and chimney are in good operating condition.
Unless the existing flue is in good condition with
suitable access for collection and removal of debris.
If the flue size is more than 225mm (9 inches)
diameter or 200 x 200mm square, a suitable lining of
150mm (6 inches) diameter should be fitted, or if the
flue length is over 5.5 metres one size larger than the
appliance outlet should be fitted. This should be a
double skin stainless steel flexible flue liner that is
independently certified for use with solid fuel.
Details of suitable linings for use with solid fuel are
given in the Official HETAS guide that can be
viewed on their website at www.hetas.co.uk
It is also important that suitable flue pipe
complying with the Building Regulations is used to
connect the stove to the flue in the chimney and that
suitable access is provided into the flue for regular
inspection and sweeping of the flueways.
The installer should comply with the Building
Regulation requirements in respect of providing a
Notice Plate giving details on the chimney, flue
lining, hearth and fireplace installation. Approved
Document J of the Building Regulations for
England and Wales is available from The Stationery
Bookshops and can also be viewed at the ODPM
website at www.safety.odpm.gov.uk/bregs/brads.htm
Chimneys should be as straight as possible.
Horizontal runs should be avoided except where
the rear outlet of the appliance is used, in which
case the horizontal section should not exceed
150mm (6'') in length.
If the fire appears to be working hard but produces
very little output to the room it is likely that
excessive draw is present in the chimney, and that
heat is being sucked out of the appliance and up the
chimney. If this is the case we recommend the
fitting of a draught stabiliser in preference to a flue
damper, in the interest of safety and efficiency.
We do not recommend the use of a damper when
burning solid fuel.
FOR ALL APPLIANCES
Access for cleaning the flue should be incorporated
in the system other than through the appliance (e.g.
a soot door or access through register plate).
Purpose-made soot doors and inspection lengths
are available from manufacturers of all systems.
Ensure that the whole length of the flue can be
reached from the soot door.
Note: if the appliance is fitted with a draught
stabiliser or if one is fitted to the flue pipe or
chimney in the same room as the appliance, then
the permanent air entry opening (or openings)
should be increased by 300mm2 for each kW of
rated output.

INSTALLATION
INTEGRAL BOILERS
Integral boilers should be connected, with flow and
return connection of any circuit on opposite sides
of the appliance, (cross flowed), to an indirect hot
water tank/system, adding Fernox or similar
corrosion inhibitor to prevent corrosion and the
formation of lime scale.
It is also essential that the return water temperature
remains in excess of 45 degrees centigrade
(Celsius). The gravity return should be fitted with a
thermostat, which will activate a cut-out on the
radiator circulating pump, should the temperature
drop below this level.
Connect pipe work to the boiler unit.
The connected pipes should be screwed to a
maximum depth of 15mm from the face of the
tapping, (female 1" B.S.R). Steel integral boilers
should be connected to an indirect hot water tank
system.
Note: the flow and return sections of any circuit
must always be opposite of appliance. Remember
to incorporate a draining plug/tap at the lowest
point to facilitate drainage & flushing.
Warning: if a pipe stat is not fitted then cold
water corrosion can occur.
To fit/remove thermostat on Tf models
For fitting/removal of thermostat on Ti models
please see page 20.
1. Pull thermostat knob off of the shaft.
2. Remove access cover plate, use a No. 2 Pozi
screw driver and remove the 2no. CSK M5 screws.
3. Remove the 2no. M5 screws that secure the
thermostat housing. The thermostat is now free, and
you will be able to remove the spacer bracket.
4. On the rear of the stove, remove the thermostat
sensor from its pocket and push this carefully
through the hole in the corner cut-out of the stove.
Take care not to kink the copper tube.
5. Withdraw the thermostat from the apperture.
6. If you are fitting a new thermostat you will need
to remove the knob extension shaft. Use a 7mm
spanner. To remove the M4 Grub screw.
7. Re-fit is the reverse of the above process. Please
ensure the spacer bracket is secured beneath the
thermostat as in point 3.
FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THESE
REQUIREMENTS WILL INVALIDATE THE
GUARANTEE
See below if adjustment is required.
CHECKING THE THERMOSTAT
AND PRESETTING TO THE
CORRECT DAMPER PRESSURES
However, it is advisable to check the cold setting
distance prior to lighting a fire in it. With the
control set at maximum there should be a gap of
23mm between the fire and the edge of the damper
plate furthest from the control shaft. If this is not
the case adjust by slackening off the lock nut and
turning the adjusting nut on the damper plate.
When the cold setting distance has been correctly
set re-tighten the lock nut.
PLEASE NOTE: THE THERMOSTAT HAS
BEEN FITTED AND CORRECTLY SET AT
MANUFACTURE. SO THE FOLLOWING
PROCEDURES WILL ONLY BE REQUIRED
WHEN REPLACING OR RE SETTING THE

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
FOR INSET STOVES (Ti40B)
BUILDERS OPENING / CHIMNEY
BREAST
Stratford Ti 40 fires are designed to be fitted into a
rectangular recess not less than 400mm (15 3/4'')
deep, not less than 400mm (15 3/4'') wide and not
less than 550mm (21 1/2'') high, the so-called
"standard builder's opening".
The fireplace surround should be vertical, and with
a flat surface against which the unit can be sealed.
The height and width of the flat surface required
will vary according to the model being installed.
Where the unit is to be fitted into an existing
opening it will normally be necessary to cut a hole
through the chimney breast so that a flue connector
can be fitted between the appliance and the
chimney flue. Avoid damaging the lintel.
For boiler models it may be necessary to cut access
holes through the side(s) or the chimney breast, so
that flow and return pipes can be connected to the
appliance.
FLUE
If using an insulated steel flue ensure that the
manufacturer's directions are followed. Take
special note that the first 450mm (18'') of the flue
should be single skin cast iron or heavy-duty steel
flue.
When a flue lining is fitted (to stainless steel or
pumice chimney systems) it should be supported
independently to the appliance, i.e. with clips,
brackets, flue lintels, etc. NOT simply resting on
top of the appliance. It should be possible to
remove the fire for major maintenance work.
CHECKING THE THERMOSTAT
Remove the thermostat knob by pulling off, lift
the side panel up and pull to the left to replace
the opposite side repeat the above exercise.
The control knob which is inside the fire for
despatch is fitted on to the shaft through the hole in
the left hand casing. It is however, advisable to
check the cold setting of the thermostat before
installing and running the appliance. This is best
20
seen from inside the appliance with the grate, fuel
retainer bars, ash pan, etc., removed.
With the control set at minimum the damper should
be just touching the side of the ash pit chamber all
round the air inlet grill.
With the control set at maximum (8) and the
damper plate parallel with the arm, there should be
a gap of approximately 23mm between the body
and the edge of the damper plate furthest from the
control shaft.
If the cold setting does require adjustment it will be
necessary to remove the front trim to give access to
the thermostat. To do this first remove the control
knob from the thermostat shaft, then slacken the
screws, which fix the casing to the unit front (a
screwdriver can be inserted through the slots on the
radius corner of the casing): the back of the casing
laps over the flange of the unit front. Lift the casing
and pull forward to remove. Adjust the setting by
slackening off the lock-nut.
Replace the casing on the unit front and refit the
control knob on to the thermostat shaft.
INSTALLATION
Fill the space around the appliance level with the
top unit with Vermiculite cement (6 parts
Vermiculite granules to 1 part Portland cement).
The flue socket in the appliance is designed to
receive 5'' or 6" nominal cast iron or heavy duty
steel pipe connector which should be caulked with
asbestos rope and fire cement.
The length of the connector pipe will be dependent
on the distance between the top of the appliance
and the bottom of the chimney but should be at
least 300mm (12").
Fill the remaining space around the connector with
the Vermiculite cement to a level where the pipe is
effectively sealed in the chimney flue, ensuring that
the flue gases can only be discharged into the flue
way. Reinstate brickwork to chimney breast and
make good. Remember to make provision for
access to boiler connections for routine
observation/maintenance.
Replace parts previously removed and check unit
thoroughly.

WATER CONNECTIONS
Heating systems
The size of the heating system which can be run,
will depend on the output rating of the appliance.
It will be necessary to work out heat loss
calculations for the system proposed in order to
establish the kW/hr rating. An appliance that will
meet this figure can then be chosen; (for boiler
outputs please refer to the brochure).
The constructional requirements of installing and
connecting the appliance also need to be taken into
account when selecting. Design and calculations
for individual heating systems should be carried out
by a qualified heating engineer. In many cases your
supplier will be able to offer advice and assistance.
Direct Systems
Stainless steel boilers, either factory fitted or
retro-fitted as add-in boilers enable connection to
direct systems to be made without the need to
change the cylinder or to fit an expansion tank.
This applies to domestic water supply only and
should not be done when in an area with soft
water.
If radiators are used then an indirect system must be
utilised.
To connect the cylinder use 28mm copper pipes.
Ensure that the pipes rise continuously to the
cylinder.
Ensure that the runs are not too long, i.e. 20ft
maximum each for flow and return. Install the
cylinder above the level of the fire, and as close to
it as possible. (the higher the cylinder the faster the
circulation). Ensure that no valves are present in the
circulating pipes.
Indirect Systems - The Domestic Hot Water
Circuit
In addition to providing hot water the primary
circuit is essential in providing a "heat leak" to
absorb excessive heat produced in the event of the
circulation pump shutting down.
effective circulation can occur around the primary
circuit to carry heat away and thus stop boiling.
The output of any radiator installed as a "heat leak"
should not be less than 10% of the rated output of
the appliance. The radiator should not be fitted
with a control valve.
The cylinder must be of the indirect type with a
minimum capacity of 110 litres, conforming to
BS 1566 part 1.
Primary flow and return pipes should be 28mm
diameter. The cylinder should be installed at a
higher level than the appliance, and as close to it as
possible (the higher the cylinder the faster the
circulation). The flow and return pipes should not
be longer than 20ft each. Pipe runs should rise
continually from the boiler to the cylinder.
A radiator of approximately 25 sq.ft. should be
connected into the primary circuit, if installed in the
bathroom it provides a means of drying towels in
the summer.
Safety Vent Circuit
This circuit consists of a cold feed pipe, expansion
pipe, and expansion tank. The possibility that water
may boil can never be completely ruled out, and it
is therefore vital to ensure that cold water can be
supplied to the boiler and steam vented from it at all
times.
The expansion tank should have a capacity of at
least 7 % of the system's water capacity. The cold
water feed pipe should be at least 22mm diameter.
There must not be any shut off valves in the circuit.
Pipes should be run to avoid air locks. A safety
relief valve should be fitted to the expansion pipe
close to the boiler.
It is often possible, and is good practice, to utilise
the primary flow and return as part of the safety
circuit. The ball valve should have a copper ball.
The overflow pipe from the expansion tank should
be 28mm diameter copper. Pipes in unheated
spaces must be lagged.
Heat is produced in varying quantities while the
fire is alight and care must be taken to ensure that
28
Stratford Tf & Ti Multifuel Boiler Stoves
INSTALLATION
Temperature and Pressure Relief Valve
With solid fuel appliances it is not practicable to
provide a sufficiently rapid reaction for shutting
down fuel in the event of a sudden rise in water
temperature and a temperature relief valve or
preferably, a combined temperature and pressure
relief valve should be installed to operate in the
event of high water temperatures occurring.
See diagram below.
•Check the circulation round the primary
system and the heat leak radiator,
particularly when the pump is running, to
ensure circulation is not reversed.
•Be sure that the chimney is operating and
that ALL smoke and fumes are vented to
the atmosphere through the chimney
terminal.
•Check all joints and seals.
•Clean the outside of the appliance to
prevent any stains becoming burnt on.
•Check the flue draught which should read
1 - 2mm, or 0.1 - 0.2mbar.
The following details must be checked and
completed in full by the installer at the time of
installation. Please answer all questions as fully as
possible. Arada Ltd can not be held responsible
for chimney or installation.
HOT WATER SYSTEMS
HOT WATER SYSTEMS
Before handing over the installation to the
customer it is strongly recommended that the
appliance is lit and the functioning of the chimney,
hot water and heating system is checked.
A checklist (Pre-lighting Checks) appears in the
Operating Instructions, but in addition to this the
installer should:
Is the boiler cross-flowed?
YES / NO
Are the pipes correctly sized?
YES / NO
What is the calculated output
required to heat the system?
Is a heat leak fitted?
YES / NO
What is the return water temperature?
Is the pump thermostatically
controlled by a pipe stat?
YES / NO
What is the height and distance of the
hot water tank above the stove?
•Operate the heating system and set the
pump head.
•Balance the radiators.
•Re-vent and ensure no air locks.

GUARANTEE
Guarantee
• During the third year the manufacturer will pay
one third of the cost and the purchaser two-thirds.
Once again we would like to thank you for buying
a Stratford multifuel boiler stove.
When you buy an Stratford stove, you are not only
buying a first class appliance - you are buying a
commitment from us to look after you and your
appliance for as long as you want.
USE OF SPARE PARTS OTHER THAN
THOSE SUPPLIED BY Arada LTD WILL
INVALIDATE THE APPLIANCE
GUARANTEE.
Your Stratford stove carries a decreasing guarantee
against manufacturing defects for a period of three
years from date of purchase providing the
registration card has been completed and returned
to Arada, otherwise only a one year
guarantee
will apply. The three years guarantee applies to the
main body of the fire, i.e. the steel carcass and
items fixed immovably thereto.
The external paint finish and thermostat carry a one
year guarantee.
Arada Ltd., cannot guarantee items which are susceptible to breakage or damage through careless
handling, dropping, etc., or through misuse of the
appliance by over firing, burning petroleum coke,
etc. Nor can the guarantee extend to
deterioration of parts through fair wear and tear. Firebox
linings, grate bars, fuel retainer bars,
baffle, gasketing materials and door glass are therefore not
covered by the guarantee.
The guarantee is conditional upon the appliance
being serviced and checked annually by a qualified
heating engineer, with documentation to be
retained and to be produced in the event of a claim
being made.
Claims are not valid where the installation does
not conform to appropriate Building
Regulations.
Parts will be repaired or replaced at the discretion
of Arada Ltd. The price of replacement shall be
shared by the manufacturer and purchaser as follows:
• During the first year of purchase the
manufacturer will pay 100% of the cost of parts
only.
• During the second year the manufacturer will pay
two thirds of the cost and the purchaser one third.

during guarantee, we will repair or replace it

installed according to the manuals instruction
and the Final Installation Check List on p29 has
been completed and signed by a suitably
qualified engineer at the time of installation.
All Guarantee periods commence on the date of
purchase and are non-transferable.
Our Guarantee is offered as an addition to your
statutory rights.

the event of a breakdown, please call your local
dealer.
