Default Re: Morning After

Just thought I would share something interesting on this topic. We fired our restaurant oven Sunday for pizza with our friends and business partners...fire was out about 9:30 that night...closed the door(only cement board right now and not insulated)most of the way that night...Monday morning the thermocouple I installed into the center brick by only 1/2 inch or 2 inches below the surface read 260F and the floor was about 370F...I sealed the door as best I could with the aforementioned door and hadn't returned until this afternoon when the thermocouple read 48F but the floor registered 160F...now as far as underfloor insulation it is 4 inches of vermicrete plus 2 inches cermamic fiber board...
