Dome Installation Video - Casa / Premio / Modena


For many of you who bought a modular oven, you may have asked how we put the domes together when we build them. For those of you considering one of our ovens, we shot a video to make your install easier.

Check it out on our You Tube Channel.


If the link doesn't work, simply go to You Tube and type Forno Bravo Channel. The video title is How to Set your Forno Bravo Oven Dome Pieces.

Thanks for participating in our Forum. We will have more video content available soon.

  • Aluminum foil

    I was told to use aluminum foil for covering gaps between bricks!
    Any input is greatly appreciated!

    Aluminum foil and mortar is not a good mix, the mortar will rot out the foil, so any supposed advantages, like heat reflection or vapor barrier, won't materialize.

    I used a sheet of foil between my inner and decorative outer arch as a slip plane. It didn't matter if it rotted out, because I only wanted the oven not to be adhered to the masonry exterior.

      What about using the foil after the mortar has dryed and cured?

        reflective barriers only work well when there is an airspace on the hot side of the reflective barrier. If they are in contact with the hot mass they conduct the heat and radiate it more quickly away from the oven.
