  • fireproofing

    I'm putting a drop-in grill into a wooden kitchen base. Can I get a way with ceramic tile left over from an oven design for heat protection of will I have to buy a [$700] stainless steel heat shield [jacket]?

    Or how else to shield?

    Code (in most places)=4" of masonry, 2" air gap to combustible materials.

      I assume you mean EITHER 4" masonry OR 2" air ?? And the 2" applies to under the grill also? Of course this may vary on the brand of grill?

        No, both, but that is for interior use. Do you have a pic of your project?

            As a rule, outdoors and wood structures (without a roof, i.e. indoors) do not play well together. Without seeing it, all I can say is don't pay 700 bucks for a SS sleeve, but do not ignore code which is normally a MINIMUM, not the optimum.

              The wood is acacia. Will not rot for 25 years. The structure is tested to hold 350-lbs. But there's a still a fire issue. I'll figure it out.

                  Is this visible wood or structural?

                          Re: fireproofing

                          Page 8 of their manual has the information you are looking for:

                          To Combustible Construction:
                          Above and below the cooking surface, maintain a minimum of 12" from the sides and a minimum of 12" from the back to adjacent vertical combustible construction.
                          Do not install this unit into combustible enclosures without an OCI insulated jacket!

                            The manual is ambiguous - 12" distance WITH or WITHOUT an insulating jacket?

                            It's probably zero distance when using their jacket. I'll have to call their engineers to be sure.
