New Product - Bark Briquettes 

Bark Briquettes are designed for a long and slow burn for up to 8 HOURS. Which solves the problem of overnight heating. The Bark Briquettes require such little maintenance. They are ideal when you are heading to bed or trying to get warm without having to attend to the fire.

Packed in clean and compact 12kg packages, Bark Briquettes are a perfect complement to our Hotties or Logs. The Bark Briquettes fit 99% of wood burning and multi-fuel stoves, each Bark Briquette measures approximately 155mm x 120mm x 70mm and wighs 1kg.

Bark Briquettes must be stored in a dry area without direct contact to moisture.

To achieve the longest burning time, it is recommended putting 2 - 3 Bark Briquettes into the fire just before any flames go out and whilst embers are still glowing red. You must then leave the air intake open allow the Bark Briquettes to ignite, when they have caught fire , the air intake should be reduced to minimal.

We highly recommend the Bark Briquettes for enclosed appliances (wood and multi-fuelstoves) where the airflow can be adjusted. Bark Briquettes are not a smokeless fuel but can be used in a smoke controlled area if used on a DEFRA approved appliance.



Hardwood Heatlogs are clean, enviromentally-friendly, easy to store and low moisture content.

Hardwood Heatlogs are the best alternative to traditional firewood. Our heat logs have a high heating value, and their moisture content is below 9%, as compared to 20% with kiln dried or seasoned firewood.

Hardwood heat logs are packed in handy 10kg packages. The packaging is compact and space saving. They must be stored in a dry area without direct contact to moisture. Each log is approximately 90 mm in diameter and 270 mm long; our hardwood heat logs can easily be broken into smaller sections, we recommend to break them as they expand while burning.
