  • Low ash: 0.4%;
  • High calorific value: 17 MJ/kg (4.72 kWh/kg) - 18% more than Bord Na Mona peat briquettes;

  • Bulk discount of €10/pallet for orders of two or more.


Due to very low moisture levels (approx. 7% compared to 20% in kiln-dried logs and 30% in seasoned logs), the heat logs light easily and give off a lot of heat. In our tests, they produced a nice burn of approx. 1 hour followed by up to two hours of hot "glow". The duration of burning will depend on the quantity used and air inflow settings.

Use recommendations:

A minimum of three briquettes should be loaded at any given time.  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.

Easy to store (well wrapped) clean burn, good heat.

Burn well and last pretty long time

Fantastic service from ordering & fast delivery, burns for long time with no smells, highly recommended

Great product. Burn well and give off plenty of heat. I use them along with seasoned logs- they burn for about the same length of time however give off considerably more heat

there were 2 packs short on my half pallet but didn't feel worth complaining about. The RUF blocks burn brilliantly, very clean and next to no ash

Good product burns well used before

Already done that


I had to call to make the purchase as I couldn’t’ get the online purchase to work. The delivery driver was great but, the trucks offloading platform was really struggling to lower the 1 tonne package. I was afraid the load was going to fall. I suggest the delivery truck capability is reviewed because this was not safe!

Clean and hot burning these logs are a good product and very suitable to our stove.


I have been trying these instead of kiln dried logs for my small Stovax. So far, I am very impressed. <br />They do not burn quite a hot as the kiln dried hardwood (but in my small Stovax that is not a bad thing - the small chamber can easily get too hot). <br />Burn time is really good and consistent - about an hour with a flame and another hour still giving off a good heat; though I have found I need to maintain a slightly higher airflow than with kiln dried logs once the fire is established.<br />They ignite very easily - I now only use a few bits of kindling with the first two logs to get the fire going.<br />They can be a little messy in storage - some sawdust flakes inevitably fall off as they are handled.<br />They burn to a very fine ash.<br />I am going to get the chimney swept earlier than usual because I have a suspicion that they produce a much finer soot, which is more likely to build up on the chimney side (certainly the Stovax has a very fine soot covering the top plate each morning). <br />I cannot see myself going back to traditional logs.

Have used this product previously, gives off great heat with the ash being very fine.


As Above

Great product consistent quality


Do not burn well in open fire, smoulder after a short time and hence no flame or heat

Burn well, contain little dust and will continue to buy them.
