Default 39" Tutto Forno in Socal

Well, here I go! I am currently doing a layout on the oven floor. The stand is done and I am ready to lay the herringbone pattern floor. I am considering using Greentherm 23Li insulating brick as the floor insulation. I propose to place the insulating brick on edge giving me 4.5" of insulation. The insulating brick meas. 9 x 4.5 x 2.5 . Anyone been down this road, and what feedback can anyone offer, before I start. Thanks in advance.

Bill

I never used insulating brick under the floor brick but, there is no reason why laying them on edge wouldn't work....whether they insulate as well as the more commonly used materials would be my question. From the PDF's I have read, they seem like a nice product.

Thanks for the response Stonecutter, I also questioned the insulating properties, but after comparing the specs to FB Board, they seem equal. That's using them on the flat (2.5") and not the 4.5" dim. At the 4.5" ht. the isulating properties should increase.
Also, I wanted to get a few more inches of cook floor height, as my stand is finished already.

You're welcome.

I didn't look for specs about compression, but I image those brick will support the weight very well. Post pics as you go!

Were in Socal are you? I was born in San Diego.

V-wiz, thanks for the input, upon checking out the cal -sil it is rated to 1200 F, while the insulating brick is rated to 2300 F. Although I know we won't be reaching those temps, wouldn't the higher rating give more insulating properties? Just want excellent thermal performance for heat retention.

Thanks, Bill
