Finishing Your Oven: A Facade Tutorial
Variation: Arched Wall
These illustrations refer to the installation of a WS-MS-5-RFG-IR dual-temperature gas oven. Many details are applicable to all of our WS-MS ovens; some apply to WS-MS-RFG-IR ovens only.
Keep in mind as you read through this tutorial that this example utilizes an Arched Doorway Extension for Flat Wall . This Extension is a new option and we are very pleased to offer it for folks looking for that traditional arched doorway look. It can be flat, meaning flush to a "flat" wall, or curved. This can be paired with a matching flat service panel extension for a uniform wall in front of ovens. We also make many other Facade Extension options that can make much the installation process easier. Be sure to view our Facade Extension page for details.

Step 1. The Base Oven
Figure 1.1represents a standard WS-MS-5-RFG-IR oven. It has shipped with a factory installed Arched Doorway Facade Extension for Flat Wall. Specs for additional sizes are available in our on-line Product Catalog and CAD Symbols in our CAD Library.
For more details on how the oven arrives from the factory, please visit our Unloading & Moving page.
Mount the Service Panel and Toe Kick per the instructions in the installation manual.
Here the stud wall is built (in green). Metal studs are recommended. Consideration must be given to the wall framing position to insure the minimum one-inch offset from the back of the wall surface (sheetrock) to the oven sheet metal (see Offset Detail).
In addition, the studs on either side of the doorway must be far enough apart so that when sheet rock and tile are installed, the Service Panel can still be removed for oven service. For more info, see the Panel Detail.
Note that the control box is mounted in the Service Panelwhere it is convenient for the chef to operate. (The control box can be remounted in a different position, but you will need to specify at the time of order so we can plug the service panel hole and ship the controller with a longer lead).

Step 3. Non-Combustibles
Seen here in yellow is the non-combustible wallboard. This is required directly over the oven doorway and 6" on either side of the doorway.
Non-combustible material is also required anywhere the façade touches the oven or the mantle. In this illustration, the non-combustible wallboard is used as flashing from the studs to either side of the service panel and contacts the edge of the mantle.
Usually a cement board is used for this application. Brand names of appropriate underlayment include Wonderboard and DUROCK. (Drywall is considered a combustible and should not be used)
Step 4. Adding Drywall
Shown in gray is the drywall applied to the stud wall. This portion does not need to be non-combustible.
For the sake of simplicity of construction, many installers choose to make the entire wall out of the non-combustible cement board mentioned above as to avoid cutting many oddly shaped segments.
Step 5. Finishing
Drywall can be finished with any decorative material that can be easily affixed to the wall surface such as tile, stucco, sheet metal, brick etc.
Note: It is necessary for the proper operation of our ovens that the Radiant Flame Control Knob be fully accessible after all finishing is completed. Please see the Radiant Knob Detail. This knob controls temperature in our gas ovens, if you cannot adjust the knob you cannot adjust the temperature.
