Your domestic pizza oven installation can be handled by our staff with our Hiab crane truck if local or we can have a trucking company deliver to your door by tail lift truck. Your local Hiab operator can then install your oven to its platform. If access is an issue the oven or grill can be rolled into place with a skid lifter, pallet jack or other means. Selecting the correct way is easy, just ask our experienced staff.
Please note all products unless specified are sold as an “untested appliance”. Your installation of our product may require design work regarding solid fuel appliances to suit the building code AS/NZS 2918:2018
Selecting the correct place for your Oven or Grill
Over the past 12 years we have seen ovens placed in many different positions. Many of the positions have been excellent for ease of use. It is handy to have the oven as close as possible to the kitchen and seating area, not way out in the garden! More and more we are seeing the ovens being installed under cover or even inside so they can be used all year round. Your Authentic Oven or Grill is designed to be outside in the weather so water wont harm it however keeping your oven dry is a good idea so heat up times are quick as possible. Your oven is painted with an exterior paint called X200 from Resene which can easily be repainted.
Preferably the oven or grill should face across or into any prevailing wind and not be too close to neighbours windows or living areas. Once the oven is hot there is little to no smoke but always consider your neighbours clothes on their clothes lines.
There are different boundary rules for installation of a fireplace relating to the flue exhaust so please check with your local council. The rules have relaxed lately in NZ but always consider your nieghbours and of course fire safety is paramount.
Non flammable floor surfaces. Its important to know the floor area in front of the oven or fireplace must be non-flammable. In the rare case of a log falling out and catching the deck on fire. But it can happen so please make sure you have this non-flammable area of at least 1000mm in front of your open fire.
A brief on delivery and pizza oven installation
If you choose to have your pizza oven delivered by our freight company they will deliver to your door then a Hiab crane is required to lift the oven into its final position. This is normally at a minimum charge of approximately $190-$250 by your local Hiab crane operator. Just ask our friendly staff for advise on installation and delivery of your pizza oven.
If there is no room to have a Hiab crane lift the oven into place there is the option of a lifting trolley or pallet jack trolley. We have one available free of charge for locals or you can hire them from your local hire company. YOUR ACCESS MUST BE AS WIDE AS THE OVEN FOR MANUAL TROLLEY INSTALLATION.
Authentic Ovens are far too heavy to lift by hand, so please don’t try! We can talk you through the pizza oven installation and assist in any way possible. Most installations only take an hour or so. It’s surprisingly easy to install these ovens with the right information so please ask.
PLEASE MAKE SURE THE INSTALLATION OF THE OVEN OR GRILL IS ALSO WITHIN THE STANDARDS NEW ZEALAND RULES. LIKE MOST OF THE OUTDOOR OVENS AND FIREPLACES AVAILABLE IN NZ AUTHENTIC OVENS AND GRILLS ARE CURRENTLY CLASSED AS AN UNTESTED APPLIANCE SO THE APPROPRIATE INSTALLATION MEASURES NEED TO BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT. REF: AS/NZS 2918:2018
ALL COMMERCIAL INSTALLATIONS WILL NEED FURTHER INFORMATION SUPPLIED BY YOUR FIRE ENGINEER OR ARCHITECT TO COMPLY WITH COUNCIL REQUIREMENTS. AUTHENTIC OVEN CAN NOT SUPPLY THESE DOCUMENTS. WE CAN HOWEVER SUPPLY BASIC DIMENSIONS AND SPECIFICATIONS.
