Why are 28cm length Safety Matches better than lighters or small matches?
Our 28cm length Safety Matches are designed to allow you to hold the match at length and be able to light your fire with the full length of the match being able to get into the fire and light the firelighter, therefore reducing the chance of injury to yourself. The box can be stored away ready for the next time you light your fire. Our 28cm long safety matches are also fantastic for lighting candles when as they are so long they will allow you to light multiple candles in one go. They are popular in restaurants for lighting those hard to reach grills. You can even take them camping!

HOW MUCH FUEL DO I NEED?
How much fuel you need will depend on a number of factors and will vary from customer to customer. Obviously how often you light a fire in your stove or fireplace is an important factor. So is the heat output of your appliance and the type of fuel you are burning. The air flow into your appliance also effects the time it takes for your fuel to be consumed. Keeping the vents on your stove open will increase the speed the fuel burns.
We have spent time putting together some tailored packages that will allow you to test each type of fuel we sell. These tailored packages are available with FREE DELIVERY inside the M25 and Surrey. We also deliver Nationally using the Palletways Network, who will contact you to arrange the best time for delivery with you. Deliveries are made Monday to Friday to our nationwide customers between 9am to 5pm.
What is smokeless coal?
Smokeless coal refers to natural or manufactured coal products that do not give off tarry or other hydrocarbon vapours when heated below their point of ignition. Anthracite is a naturally-occurring smokeless fuel which has a long burn time and a high heat output. It can, however, be difficult to light and burns with a subdued flame, so many fire-owners choose other options. Manufactured smokeless coals contain anthracite and a mix of other fuels. Our smokeless coal has been developed to combine the long fire life of anthracite with the bright flame and easy-lighting qualities of house coal, and can be used on an open fire cast iron insert, and in multi-fuel stoves.
How do you use natural wood shaving firelighters?
These are really simple to use.
First lay a bed of kindling, place a single natural firelighter on top.
Lay 3-4 pieces of kindling over the top in a "tippi" shape and place two small logs over the top of the kindling.
Light the natural firelighter and away you go!
If you are lighting a stove or fireplace on a cold day, it may help if you use 2 or 3 natural firelighters to help warm the flue quickly, as a warm flue will draw properly once warm.
If lighting charcoal or a fire pit when cooking outside, or a wood fired oven using a compressed beech log, then use 3 firelighters, as this will get your fire up to temperature quickly. This is the same for burning smokeless fuel, get the fire as hot as possible at the start so that the flue warms up!
Where do the Olive Wood logs come from?
Olive Wood logs are from the many places including Europe and Turkey where olive's are produced. Olive wood logs are a fantastic fuel to heat your home and cool with, burning for twice the time of a kiln dried log due to it being very dense. The olive wood trees naturally die over time and in the counties where it grows the wood is used locally for heating and cooking, the brash (small branches of olive wood) is traditionally used for pizza ovens and cooking and the larger trunks and branches are used for firewood. It is then chopped up into manageable sizes, seasoned for over a year, creating olive wood logs and chunks. The olive hardwood logs are put into bags and weigh around 10-12kG. Olive wood smells amazing too and is the best hardwood log to cook food with. Why not try some as a top up on your order?
