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.

  • Perlcrete mortar mixture

    How fast does the perlcrete insulation layer set up?

    I'm going to use a combination of used insulating firebrick and perlite / perlite mortar for the insulating hearth....just wondering about any experience you have with the consistency of the perlite mixture for that purpose??

    Seems to be about a week for a normal 6-7:1 mix, or much quicker if you add Sodium Silicate.

    Depends how quick you want to continue

    Cheers

        It took one day for me.

        Then I started working on my thermal layer followed by oven floor.
