Default Door design??

I am pleased to say my WFO is working a treat. Cooked in it for the first time on the weekend and have not had pizza that good since I was last in italy (still have to insulate it).

Thankyou to everybody for all the help during my construction time.

I am now deciding on a door. I have some left over cal sil boards and was wondering how I could incorporate them into a insulated door.

Does anyone have any advice or suggestions? I have an igloo style oven with a reveal inside the entry so I can seal the oven when cooking bread etc.

Thanks again.

Cheers
Jase

Woo hoo Jase !
You lucky bugger, I'm coming over for pizza ..lol
Glad it has all worked for you. I'm not much good for advise on the door, we are hoping to use an antique oven door I found.
Hope someone comes up with something useful for you.
Pizza on Matey !!!!!!

Try bolting the board onto a wooden door. Use small bolts so you minimise heat loss through them. Don't use screws the heat gets into where the threads bite into the timber and because they're so hot they char the wood and loosen. I use a 12mm panel in front of a 20 mm hardwood untreated timber door. It makes for a one handed operation to place and remove the door

Only problem is that the cal sil board is in a few smaller pieces (not large enough for one piece as they are off cuts). Also wouldn't the board get damaged as you slide it in and out of the oven, it is pretty fragile stuff.

Thanks

I can send you a list of where I purchased all my material from if you like, that was the hardest part I reckon. Let me know and I will post it as a PDF here.

I have not made a door with cal sil board (or any other ceramic fiber board), I used leftover perlite and made a hollow 3" sheet aluminum door which I filled with the perlite> I can say any and all of the ceramic boards should be encased (wrapped) in some way. Sheet SS or aluminum come to mind...wood on the outside would certainly look good.
As you mention, exposed, it will easily damage......and remember this stuff is toxic; you don't want to breath it or have particles get into any food.

I've used aerated concrete (its called Y-tong around here) covered with wood - works very well, insulates beautifully, and doesn't cost much. the concrete board does become brittle over time, but its also very easy to replace. Check it out:

That said, my favourite doors are the hollow metal ones filled with some kind of insulation. But for tht you need to know or be a competant welder...

This is one example I find very cool, but there are plenty of others:

I have also attached a door design. Thinking of getting it fabricated out of stainless steel and then fill the cavity with vermiculite concrete and a render of high heat mortar on the outside to protect it. Thoughts anyone??

Hi Lee, see attached my materials and where I got them from. Good luck.
