Default dusty's Door

Well...I think that's it for my door. Steel front, FB board in the middle, with a 1/2 inch piece of ceramic "hardybacker" board in back next to the fire. I bolted it together with carriage bolts and bolted a gate sping on there for a handle. Fits like a glove. Now for the test. I'm not possitive about the backer board, but I think it will work just fine. Gotta be better than stackin' and unstackin' those red hot bricks!

Dusty,

Nice looking door. I think you should think about a way of sealing the board on its edge. It is an industrial insulating product, and you should keep it sealed to lock in the fibers.

Thanks. You are probably right. Thought about that some, but not alot. I was hoping that the steel or the backer board would take most of the big hits. Will the heat cause it to deteriorate?

Dusty,

It isn't the heat, but the fibers being in the air where you will breath them and they will come in contact with food.

Perfect! It's simple and should work great.
Nice job.

cool looking door dusty. I was wondering the same thing about seeing if you could encase the edge by spreading some furnace cement or something like that on it. I wonder if that would spread on, but then would be "brittle" when dried.

Dusty,
I think James is possibly referring to the possible carcinogenic or other ill effects of breathing/eating the fibers.

Love your door! Something around the exterior to keep the ceramic fibers in there - I've yet to do that to mine.

Nice door Dustman.

How heavy is the sucker?

They make an aluminum tape.... for furnaces etc. I think it would be perfect to run around the edges. It would require replacement from time to time... but it is thin and wouldn't make your door any bigger.

I will see if I can find some online. I usually buy it at Lowe's when I need it though.

Best example I could find.

12 roll Aluminum Foil Tape Duct work Insulation repair - eBay (item 350036353926 end time Mar-20-08 10:10:03 PDT)

But it shouldn't detract from the look of the door.
