Social housing solutions


Creating efficient heating solutions is all we ever think about. It’s the reason why we’re one step ahead and able to produce fires that are dedicated to meeting the needs of social housing.Established in 1890, and one of Britain’s much loved brands, Valor is a name that is synonymous with quality and innovative design. The company’s pioneering gas fire technology not only saw the launch of the first ever living flame gas fire, it saw the debut of the first balanced flue fire.

Being a leading supplier of gas and electric contract fires and electric suites to the social housing sector, the Valor name is today widely acclaimed, and it is this pedigree and experience that makes Valor a number one choice for landlords and customers alike.

Valor is part of the GDC Group, which is the UK heating division of the multi-national Glen Dimplex Group - one of the world’s largest electrical heating businesses. Alongside Robinson Willey and Faber, the Division boasts the largest and most powerful portfolio of gas fire names in the UK.

With millions of UK homes caught in a fuel poverty trap and with fuel bills continuing to rise, energy efficiency and affordable warmth are major considerations when specifying fires for social housing. The pursuit of affordable warmth remains Valor’s number one aim. By working closely with local authorities, housing associations and registered social landlords, Valor continues to design and manufacture products that provide superior comfort and energy efficient heating solutions, without compromising on quality. Producing heating products that meet the specific needs of social housing and some of the most vulnerable people in our society is everything that Valor stands for.

As one would expect from a leading manufacturer, all Valor electric fires are quality tested to rigorous standards. All products are manufactured in accordance with the internationally recognised Quality Management System BS EN ISO9001 that recognises all areas of product design, development, manufacture and service. All of Valor’s electric fires carry the prestigious BEAB approval. Recognised throughout Europe, this Approved Mark not only demonstrates the safety pedigree of the fires, it shows Valor’s commitment to best practice, to producing quality products and most importantly, it highlights Valor’s commitment to the safety of all its customers.
