Default Fabricated my insulated door.

We built the insulated door to the oven. Using steel sheets,
4" of CF insulation and gate handles.
No bolts, all welded on. I still have to clean the steel and paint the outside
(only) with
high heat paint.
I plan on using a gasket of some sort but im not sure what, as im skeptical
about ceramic fiber stove ropes,
the fibers are very loose and the package clearly states to not go near food.
I was thinking of using gas oven door gasket ropes, anyone know what the
temp rating is on that?

Anyways here are the photos.

Your build is looking great! I will be interested to hear how hot the outside of the door gets.

My door is 4 inches of ceramic fiber board wrapped in thin aluminum sheet metal attached to a piece of plywood (on the outside). I initially propped it up against the oven opening (which is rimmed by a flat 1 1/2 in lip of brick) with a brick. No gasket. I recently put metal handles on a nice piece of wood and adhered to the outside (plywood) of the door with 600 degree silicone. Now no brick prop is needed.
The oven seals well enough to extinguish embers, and is generally 550 F the next morning after pizza and drops about 100 F each day after that - quicker if the oven is used to bake / cook. I haven't though I needed an additional seal.

Thanks for the info, my door is tight also, however ive got lots of extra gas oven door rope gasket which is not loose fibers, id like to use this but i dont know what the temp rating is, and apparently neither does the manufacture.
