Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena

Hello,

For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.

If the link doesn't work, simply go to You Tube and type Forno Bravo Channel. The video title is How to Set your Forno Bravo Oven Dome Pieces.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

    I came up with a idea to use fiber glass insulation mixed with spec mix and fire clay to make my insulating layer instead of vermiculite it seamed to work does anyone see me having any problems with this thanks Jason

    I would think Fiberglass mixed with clay would be fiber re-enforced clay. Fiberglass insolation works due to the air space it holds.

      There's no reason not to use vermiculite/perlite concrete if you have the room for it. It's cheap, universally available, and heat proof.

      Mixing fiberglass with clay is a really bad idea, as Mark has pointed out.

        I would just buy the woven ceramic. I can buy it up here for less than $150 and it is enough for a 3" layer plus some for a 36" interior oven I built. The insulation is amazing. It makes a huge difference. Just google woven ceramic insulation in your area. Good luck.

          Some fiberglass insulation will not stand up to the 1000 + F that the oven will reach.
