Default Re: Is ceramic fiber insulating board worth it?

.... a quick google for the Superwool 607 comes up with:

The Thermal Ceramics Superwool® family of products offers a versatile alternative to traditional insulation ...


It is advertised as "low biopersistence" - so perhaps it is worth it after all.

And I'll be wearing a respirator when installing the blanket anyway ... thanks Dmun.

Also agree to use boards: i used vermiculite insulation and I think that is where the oven loses most heat. Unfortunately couldnt get the FB boards here in the UK otherwise would have done so. I would wait for them.. worth it in the long run.

Default Re: Is ceramic fiber insulating board worth it?

Hi there, a question for you guys with experience. I have read a little about wood fired oven and want to build one, preferably a 'tunnel rather than an igloo, i have a limited area between two existing concrete columns that are built against a block wall, the space between the columns is 39 inches wide and i am limited in front to back depth to 36 max.inches by not wanting to intrude onto a pool deck area mainly for aesthetic reasons.

So the question is… what are the thinest walls that i can have and still reach and maintain the heat i need and what would be the optimum materials for this construction.

i realise that the oven construction has to be insulated or separated from the existing wall and column structure or heat will be lost into this structure.

I also realise that for optimum performance and interior space i may have to use the most expensive materials available.

Any advice appreciated, Thanks.
