Curved, Large Radius Wall w/ Special Details
To mount Wood Stone hood, approximate the center line of the hood and place on the oven inline with the center line of the oven (A). Mount hood as far forward on oven as possible, this is achieved by moving the hood so the front edge of lower notch is even with the front of the oven (B). Attach hood to oven top by fastening flange with self-tapping screws (C). Connect ductwork.
Note that the studs maintain 1" clearance from the oven. If these are metal studs they may touch the oven, however, THEN the 1" clearance to combustible construction must be maintained from the surface of the finished wall (in other words, no stacking napkins or wood next to the oven facade). If there is an air space between the metal stud, and a minimum of 1" to the wallboard, you will be able to stack combustibles next to the facade. Back to Curved, Large Radius Wall w/ Facade Extensions & Hood: Step 2.
To prevent dripping of grease from the hood in to the space between the oven and facade wall, we recommend you create a custom sheet metal Trim piece as seen in the image at right.
This trim piece should close any gaps between the oven and the wall.
Proper cleaning of the hood filters is an absolute must. For proper cleaning to be occur, adequate clearance for removal of the filters must be maintained.
We recommend a minimum 8" clearance inside front of the hood and any facade. This will facilitate simple removal and cleaning of the filters.
When the facade is complete, the Storage Box Facade Extension must remain removable. "A" represents the unobstructed path of the panel for removal. "B" represents the width necessary to keep that path clear.
A facade will make for a functional installation as long as the following conditions are met: 1.) Service can be performed from the FRONT of the oven by removing the Storage Box Facade Extension; 2.) There is sufficient airflow from the front-of-the-house; 3.) The radiant control knob is accessible, see Radiant Knob Detail below.Air flows to the under part of the oven through perforated sections in the upper sections of the sides of the storage box extensions.
This area must be free of obstructions to allow proper airflow. The burners in the gas oven will not operate without sufficient combustion air. To avoid common installation mistakes that effect airflow, please read through the Dos and Don'ts of Oven Venting.
The control knob for the radiant flame inside the oven should always be accessible.
- Wait, I need to see that again, start me over from the Beginning of the tutorial.
- I'm ready to see an easier fix, show me the Wood Stone Facade Extensions.
- I need drawings. Take me to the CAD Library.
- The Tutorial didn't cover exhausting the oven, show me your Venting page.
- I don't want tile or brick or stone, I want a Custom Finish like Stucco or Copper.
