Insulation material suppliers in South Africa - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

    I'll save you the saga & only share that should you need insulating bricks you can get them at Vereeniging Refractories in Springs (for those who do not know the area, vereeniging & springs is some 100km appart). tel 016 450 6111. The ones to go for goes by the name S20 and costs R12 each

    Ceramic blanket goes by the name B96/25 from RMS in Boksburg North 011 917 0702. Costs R300/box which includes 7.32x6.1x.025

    Hope this helps someone at some stage

      Nice idea Dolf...

      I live in Cape Town, and am at the early stages of planning a build. I've been costing materials and finding suppliers and came across a company called Cape Refractory Industries (Pty) Ltd (based in Brackenfell, tel: (021) 982-7484), which stocks firebricks, refractory mortar and insulation.

      Hope this can help someone in future.
