UL Listings Meet Building Code Requirements for Residential Wood Fired and Commercial Wood/Gas Fired Pizza Ovens

Salinas, CA  March 1, 2016 – Forno Bravo ( has updated their Intertek certification in Canada of its wood and gas burning commercial pizza ovens and wood burning residential pizza ovens. The ETL and Warnock Hersey listings indicate that Forno Bravo pizza ovens have been thoroughly tested to meet industry standards for the United States and Canada. The pizza ovens have been Intertek certified in Canada since 2007.

“We want to emphasize to our Canadian customers and dealer partners that they can be confident that Forno Bravo pizza ovens meet safety and sanitation industry standards when planning installations,” said Tim Cole, COO of Forno Bravo.

The Intertek listings cover Forno Bravo residential wood fired Casa and Premio Series pizza oven kits and the Toscana and Vesuvio assembled pizza ovens. Commercially, the listings cover all wood and gas fired pizza oven kits and assembled pizza ovens.

Canadian building code CSA B365-10 requires that any solid-fuel burning appliances and equipment be installed and certified by a WETT (Wood Energy Technology Transfer) certified technician. Forno Bravo pizza ovens that are installed indoors or attached to a dwelling or outside structure, such as a pergola, are required to have a WETT certified technician install the oven. Free-standing outdoor pizza ovens are exempt from the requirement.

Allan Ham, President of Outdoor Pizza Ovens Canada (, a Forno Bravo dealer based in Barrie, Ontario, stated, “We have experienced great success with sales and installations of Forno Bravo pizza ovens particularly in commercial settings where the Intertek listings are crucial for making the sale. When you purchase a Forno Bravo pizza oven from us, you receive a full consultation and installation by a WETT certified technician if required.”

Forno Bravo wood fired pizza ovens are available for direct sale worldwide through Forno Bravo or through its dealer partners.  The hand-crafted refractory pizza ovens have been manufactured in Northern California since 2005 and are available in a variety of models and sizes to suit the needs of homeowners, restaurants, bakeries, pizzerias and mobile caterers.
