UK Hard

Please note: The packaging on UK Hard has recently changed from 10kg of briquettes in Cardboard boxes to 5kg of product

in Shrink-wrap (5kg).The plastic is recyclable.


Made from:

UK Hard are a cylindrical, densely packed briquette made from a mixture of hardwoods. They’re made in England using sawdust produced from the manufacture of hardwood moldings for furniture. Each 5kg pack contains four briquettes that very easily break into smaller sections.

Burning characteristics:

They are easy to light and quick to reach a high operating temperature, which enables your stove to work at maximum efficiency. They burn with a lively flame to start with, then turn red hot and provide a good steady heat for a couple of hours. UK Hard will expand lengthways as they burn, so place them across your fire rather than pointing towards the hearth, or break them up to use on smaller stoves.

Perfect for:

Smaller stoves under 5kw. Break them up into smaller pieces and place them around one Waxling lighter for a quick and easy way to light the fire, or use whole as a main fuel.

None of our briquettes contain additives or chemicals. They are made from pure, untreated wood by-product and are held together by compression alone.

UK Hard briquettes come in plastic shrink-wrap. Please check with your local authority for recycling facilities.

The briquetting industry uses plastic to wrap wood briquettes in order to ensure they stay dry, as damp briquettes break up and are 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. For more information on our use of plastics please see Our Environmental Responsibility.
