In our tests, these wood briquettes have shown a burning time of well over an hour and then glowed while releasing heat for over three hours, or 4.5 hours total. One of our customers reported: "Two briquettes placed tightly in the corner of the wood burner (so two sides are not exposed to the fire) will just about last all night with the vents closed".
Delivery on 7.5 tonne vehicles is now limited to pallets weighing 740 kg or less, which includes 3/4 pallets, half pallets and quarter pallets. Please telephone or email us if you would like this delivery option.
- Due to the nature of the bark and chips material used for their production, the briquettes are less tightly compressed than some of our other products. Your bag will contain some sawdust and shavings. We recommend opening the pack near your stove. This does not affect their performance.
- The surface can be rough and fibery - we recommend using garden gloves to avoid splinters. Avoid poking the burning or smouldering briquettes to avoid sparks.
- If used on their own, a minimum of three briquettes should be loaded at any given time. Two briquettes can work well when mixed with other types of briquettes or logs.
- Do not touch burning or hot briquettes to avoid sparks.
- Because they burn much hotter than logs and expand slightly in the fire, it is important not to overload your fire box. Loading to about half the capacity is usually ideal, but try and see what works best for you.
- To maximise performance, get the fire really hot before turning down the air flow and refuelling as required.
- Recommended for all types of fireplaces, wood and multifuel stoves and log boilers.
- The briquettes are of a russet colour due to the presence of ground birch bark. This is normal and provides the briquettes with longer burn properties.
- One pack contains nine briquettes and weighs approx. 9.17kg.
