The Complete Kit - Series 800 Oven

Purchase the complete kit and you will receive:

  1. The Basic Unit
  2. Refractory Floor
  3. Refractory Outer Skin
  4. Support Stand
  5. Detailed Installation and Firing Instructions

With the complete kit two capable people can have the oven installed and the fire lit in approximately an hour.  No need for a crane or forklift, the segments are suitable for two people to install.  The estimated time for installation of the oven assumes that a suitable site is available.



A flat area 1.2 by 1.2 metres is required for the oven.  We suggest that it is levelled with crushed rock, concrete, paver or similar surface treatment.  An additional, cleared flat area is required in front of the oven to allow ready and safe access during cooking.  Please check with your local fire authority.

To comply with local fire regulations it maybe necessary to clear all combustible materials from the area immediately adjacent to the oven and to have a water supply available.

Site preparation is not included in the scope of supply by Clayworks.



Installation is very simple and can easily be completed by two capable people. Follow the Detailed Installation Instructions included with the kit; the following is an overview of the procedure:
