Oven Clearances

Bistro Home:

  • The Wood Stone Bistro Home (BH) models require a minimum 1-inch clearance to combustibles from all sides, and 6-inch clearance to combustibles from the top and 6-inch clearance from the exhaust transition and flue collar. If building a facade that will contact the appliance, use completely non-combustible materials. Any facade wall built 6 inches to either side of the doorway and above must be of non-combustible construction. Please note that standard Drywall (or Sheetrock) is considered a combustible.

  • This appliance must be installed on a non-combustible floor surface. As with any cooking equipment, we suggest that care be taken when choosing the surfaces in front of the appliance to protect them from potential damage from hot, heavy items that may be removed from the cooking chamber. 

    Note: For ovens listed to burn wood (those with a “-W” in the model number), the non-combustible floor surface must extend 36 inches in front of, and 30 inches to either side of, the door. 

Mountain Home:

  • The Wood Stone Mountain Home (MH) models require a minimum 1-inch clearance to combustibles from all sides, and 6-inch clearance to combustibles from the top. If building a facade that will contact the appliance, use completely non-combustible materials. Please note that standard Drywall (or Sheetrock) is considered a combustible. Side and top clearance to non-combustibles is 0". 
     
  • Any facade 6" to either side of the appliance doorway and above must be constructed of non-combustible building materials. WARNING: Do not pack the required air spaces with insulation or other materials.

    UTILITY REQUIREMENTS

    BistroStainlessSteelStandWrap.jpg

    For specific gas and electrical requirements (BTUs, Amps) please download the spec sheet for the oven you are considering in our Products section.

    Some general considerations about utility requirements include:

    • Wood Stone gas-fired ovens require a minimum ¾” inside diameter for incoming gas lines and fittings (¾” NPT). It is important that all elbows and connections from the gas supply to the oven also maintain at least ¾”, anything smaller than that can restrict gas flow and impact oven performance.
    • Is the gas pressure too high or too low? Wood Stone ovens require a minimum incoming gas pressure (on NG) of 7” W.C. (water column) and can have up to 14”. Below 7” will affect performance, above 14” will require a regulator before the oven. Please also consider that if the incoming is 7” and there are several other appliances feeding off of the same line, then the real gas pressure at the oven could be less than 7”. Please coordinate this with your gas installer and give us a call with any questions.
