McGills Warehouse Online Department Store,HF102 2" Ceramic Fiber Boards Density: 17.5lb/ft3 or 280kg/m3(D1A)(G2B)(G3C)

FWIW, I looked all over for local insulation suppliers and didn't find much. I think price & availability varies quite substantially based on location.

If you do order from McGills, I suggest checking out the ceramic blanket prices too - they are really low.

McGills Warehouse Online Department Store,HF10 Ceramic Fiber Blanket 2" - 8lb/ft3 or 128kg/m3

Good Luck!

deejayoh.....These prices from McGills are great!! Almost too good to be true. What was your experience with them and the quality of the product you received? I am about ready to order board and blanket. Thanks

There are a bunch of FB dealers in or near CT, if you can pick it up locally - otherwise, the shipping can cost as much as the product. By the way, the 1" blanket is easier to drape over the dome.

404 error on the first post's links... This has probably been mentioned before, but you really should take them down if they're not working anymore, and possibly revise the first post?

Unless it's just me?

It appears to me that McGills offers THREE boards (24" x 36" x 2") for almost the same price as FB has for TWO boards.
Am I missing something here?
Is this the same product?
I would much rather buy from FB but money is money...

Hi there. I am from the UK. Just joined this forum and think it's great! Finding it very helpful!
The problem I have is that it seems the products you are talking about have different names over here.
I am looking to find an insulating blanket to wrap around the dome.
Could I use rockwool? Which is the Same as the insulation I use in my loft. Or is it not heat resistant?
Would a fiberglass blanket or ceramic fibre blanket be something I should use?

Rockwool is fine temperature-wise, but thick or high-density versions are pretty stiff (harder to wrap around the dome). There may be a smell for the first few firings, while the resin binders cook out. Ceramic blanket is the "best" -- easy to drape, good R-value per inch, and you'll never overheat it. Fiberglass has the lowest temperature rating, so I'd avoid laying it against the dome.
