Hey all, just wondering if anyone has used this product as a dome insualtor, ROXUL? The Better Insulation | Products | RW 60 Blanket and how much should be used if so? I have a hard time understanding r values and all that stuff. When I was on the phone with my local vendor I asked him if there were any alternative products that could substitute for the insulfrax or fiberfrax and he mentioned this. By the way what is the advantage of using insulfrax over fiberfrax? The other thing he mentioned was the stuff jon breck used ,cast o lite 1600/2200. I have made significant progress over the last couple weeks. I now have a 42" 1/3 brick16" tall dome with a pretty aggesive arch. It has a 9tallx 17 inch door which will be fittedwith a true radius half moon stainless steel plats as the oven opening. I got my pipe yesterday and went with triple wall 7". I have attached a few pictures and one is a mockup of what I think I will be doing for the vent/landing. It is simple, but i think it looks strong and effective. I was wondering since I am going to have a 9" tall door, how high can the front of my vent be and still draw effectively? I am not liking my viewing angle of the interior. the mock up has it at 12.5 (with mortar) point. Thanks of all of your help. Its funny, not really, but all of this low dome conversation started, right as I started my build, and I did not look at the sight for a week or so after I started. I have had some worries about the arch being too aggressive and caving in, but I dont think it is going to. hear knock on wood now. Thanks all please chime in -marc
