Each of our Oven Kits has a long list of inclusions, which can be found in the written instructions for each kit (linked below). As an example, please see below the list of inclusions for the D105 PreCut Brick Oven Kit;
D105 KIT CONTENTS
CALCIUM SILICATE BOARD
3 x Calcium Silicate Boards 1000x610x50mm
This is the 50mm thick insulation board layer that you will install underneath your oven; it comes with printed paper templates & drawing pins so that you can pin the templates onto the CalSil board and cut out the pieces you need, following the lines shown on the paper templates.
4 x Refractory Castable 25kg bags and 1 x 6kg bag
Refractory Castable is premixed high temperature concrete, which you’ll use to form the sub-floor heat bank under the Fire Brick Floor Tiles, and for pouring the dome keystone. The 6kg bag is extra, just in case.
FIRE BRICKS – OVEN DOME
All bricks for the Oven Dome are provided, carefully cut to keep the internal gaps on the inside face of the oven to a minimum. These fire bricks are 38% Alumina, rated to 1350°C and are 115mm thick.
FIRE BRICKS – FLOOR TILES
The Floor Tiles are all cut to size and ready to lay; the center tile has a 3mm hole pre-drilled in the center for the trammel tool to lock into. The fire bricks used in the oven floor are 38% Alumina, rated to 1350°C with an exceptionally hard wearing surface, and are 50mm thick.
FIRE BRICKS – ENTRY & VENT ARCHES
The bricks for the Entry and Vent Arches that form the mouth of the oven are all cut to size from 38% Alumina fire bricks rated to 1350°C, ready to lay.
The Entry Arch Bricks (the opening into the dome) are machine-ground on their back face to follow the curvature of the dome, to give you a smooth transition from the dome into the opening.
The Vent Arch Bricks are carefully selected as these will be on display at the front of the oven. They are all cut to size, and are designed to lock into the Entry Arch for strength and stability.
FORMWORK – ENTRY & VENT ARCHES
We provide CNC machined timber formwork with your kit to construct the Entry and Vent Arches around, to ensure that your brickwork is exactly as per our design. The Formwork is clearly marked to help you position the arches accurately, and has machined markings showing the location and thickness of each mortar joint.
The trammel is a tool that you will clamp each dome brick into, enabling you to lay the dome bricks in a perfect hemisphere. It has a hardened pin in the base that fits into the hole drilled in the center tile.
FIBREGLASS DOME FORMWORK
To lay the last few rows of bricks in the dome we provide you with a fibreglass dome form, made to the same curve as the oven dome. It comes with a round timber support, to spread the load when you jack it into position.
HYBRID REFRACTORY BEDDING MORTAR
Dry Airset Refractory Mortar: 2 x 6kg bag
This is the mortar you will use to lay the fire brick tiles that make up the oven floor. Please be aware that you will need to mix the Airset mortar with General Purpose Cement, Lime and Washed Sand* in the ratio shown on the bag. This makes a smooth hybrid mortar mix perfectly suited to bedding down fire bricks for oven floors.
REFREACTORY MORTAR (two part mixture)
Refractory Mortar Part A: 3 x 25kg bags
Refractory Mortar Part B: 1 x 25kg bag
This is the mortar you’ll use to lay all of the dome bricks in the kit. It is rated to fill joints up to 75mm width.
PRECAST FLUE GALLERY
The PreCast Flue Gallery is the molded section that fits over the brick arches at the front of the oven. Made from refractory castable and reinforced with stainless steel fibres, it’s fitted with 7” Stainless Steel Flue sleeve, ready to attach the flue section onto. A brushed stainless steel ring covers the flue expansion joint.
CERAMIC FIBRE BLANKET
One full roll and one half roll of 25mm thick Ceramic Fibre Blanket are provided, which will give you two full layers over your brick dome for 50mm coverage which is precisely what we recommend.
LiteFill Perlite: 1 x 100L bags + 3 x 50L bag
This is the material you will use to cover the Ceramic Fibre Blanket layer, which you will be mixing with GP Cement, Lime and Washed Sand* to make a high-build Render mixture. There is enough Perlite in the kit to build up a 50mm shell of render over the oven dome, with plenty left in reserve if some is wasted on accident.
* Sand, Lime and GP Cement are available at hardware stores and need to be purchased in addition to the kit.
STAINLESS STEEL FLUE & HAT
1 x 7” Stainless Steel Flue – 900mm Length
1 x 7” Stainless Steel Cowling
ACRYLIC ROLL-ON BASECOAT RENDER
1 x 1.3gal MAC ‘Rustic Roll-On’ Acrylic Render (White Basecoat)
This is the membrane coating that you will apply over the outer dome, once the oven has been completely cured and all moisture has been driven out. It gives the dome a good waterproof basecoat which can be rolled over with more roll-on render, or other similar exterior acrylic coating. It can be tinted at most paint stores.
The final part of your kit is our Stainless Steel oven door, coated in a satin black finish. The handles are beautiful oiled hardwood, with solid stainless steel rings top and bottom. The door comes with a vacuum sealed temperature gauge accurate to 550°C (packed inside the bag of extras within the door box).
