Oak-tagon are made from pure oak, ash and chestnut sawdust, which is quite fine and so produces a very dense, dust-free briquette. The hardwood sawdust comes from a company producing hardwood flooring and furniture.
Each briquette weighs around 1.7kg, and is perfect for smaller stoves up to about 7kw. This briquette has rated very highly in staff tests, getting five stars from everyone. They’re very highly compressed, so are very low dust and their density gives them a good long ‘glow time’. They generate excellent heat with an attractive flame and hold their form whilst burning. They expand by about 15-20% whilst burning, so due to their length (28cm) they are best broken in half on smaller stoves. We’ve found that they’re incredibly versatile as well – they’re very easy to break and can be broken to into small slices, which light easily. So you can use just Oak-tagon to do everything, with no need for separate kindling.
The unusual octagonal shape stops them rolling in the hearth as well, which is just another point in their favour.
Great for both stoves and open fires, Oak-tagon produce a lot of heat with an excellent flame. They hold their shape and are versatile enough to start the fire with and to use for long main burning.
None of our briquettes contain additives or chemicals. They are made from pure, untreated wood by-product and are held together by compression alone.

Plastic is widely used for wrapping briquettes, in order to ensure that they stay dry, as a damp briquette will break up and be unsuitable for burning. The environmental impact of our products is important to us, so we are constantly working with our suppliers to improve the sustainability of their packaging by using cardboard in place of plastic wherever possible.
