UK RUF Bark is a dense softwood briquette made from the bark of UK softwood conifer trees.
Because they’re square, RUF blocks don’t roll in the hearth, so they’re easy and safe to use in an open fire.
UK RUF Bark react quickly to air flow. They light easily and burn brightly with the stove vents open but quickly go into slumber mode with the air vents closed. In slumber mode they will last anywhere between four and eight hours depending on air flow and the quality of your stove. These briquettes do expand whilst burning so should be broken into smaller sections for small stoves.

Manufacturers widely use plastic to wrap briquettes, ensuring that they stay dry. A damp briquette breaks up, making it unsuitable for burning. We genuinely care about the environmental impact of our products, and are constantly working to improve the sustainability of our packaging by using cardboard in place of plastic wherever possible.
