Colin,
Fyi those bricks are sitting on CaSi not my concrete hearth.

I did something similar to Russel - used Insulated firebrick splits under my stainless steel and a piece of Soapstone that is my landing.

I just got the landing fully installed in front of that today... the picture was taken last August

I think there has been some discussion of how well Granite will handle the heat of a landing - I would do some searching on that.

Thanks again.

Hey Deejayoh, that looks great [you photos] and I was doing the search on Granite Landing while you were typing the message.

Russell it did look like it was on your concrete base. I am trying to avoid having Calsil in landing area as I am concerned with the oven being out in the weather as I do not intend covering the area [at this point]. I have been told that calsil can perish if it stays wet.

Hi all

Not that I felt like it today [big night at Bruce Springsteen at Hanging Rock what a great concert. Have to be one of the best showmen I have seen] after a couple of big nights and days. But, I got the calsil down this afternoon taking Doug's advice and used the Hebel adhesive to bed it in.

I made a little faux paux , forgetting to allow for the base arch bricks when cutting the Calsil. Not to worry though I kept the offcuts so easily fixed .

All looking good thus far. But that is enough for today, am going for a SNAP [short nap] or nanna nap whatever your persuasion is .

Thanks Allan

I did some googling the other night and I get different answers, 1.59 in one or two cases but mainly 1.29 when looking at conversion. So I will go with 1.3 or 1.6 .

Goes to show google doesn't always work.

Colin,
You are correct on CaSi does not like exposure to weather/water. My Ca Si is sitting on 2" of FoamGlas which in not affected by water and then I veneered the FoamGlas and CaSi with a firebrick veneer (abt 1.25" thick) which were left over cut offs from my build. Tip, make sure you shim arch form to add release or you won't get the form out. Save the form for a future door template.

Hi Russell and thanks.

My plan is to use the stainless steel 100*50 stuffed with calsil since I have some scrap. Layed flat at this point in front of the inner arch door side, I will then have a vertical piece of calsil cut to height dependent on the granite (probably 25mm) thickness. I will use the firebrick tiles and some fire brick splits to bring the rest of the landing to the right height. I will have no calsil forward (other than 50mm) of the thermal break. The granite will be flat and come down the front edge of the landing so it looks like a monolithic piece of granite.

Haven't forgotten the shims, was just lining the arch up.

Mine was 0.065", so 1.6mm thick, if that helps
