REFRACTORIES. THE FIRST INGREDIENTS IN BRICK OVEN BAKING.
Somewhere at the end of each new brick oven is an intensely passionate chef or cook who labors over every ingredient. These artisans never compromise when it comes to their food’s appearance, texture, and flavor. There’s only one oven they want to stand behind: one that performs to the highest degree.
HarbisonWalker International’s NSF / ANSI Food Grade OVENZZ™ refractory solutions are a leading choice for commercial and residential oven suppliers, designers, and builders because our refractory materials deliver exceptional durability and cooking performance.
When you have an even and thermal-efficient heating environment, foods cook better and taste better.
PIZZA? BREAD? PANINI? WHATEVER YOU BAKE, OVENZZ™ FOOD-GRADE PRODUCTS WILL WORK FOR YOU
We provide solutions for all kinds of brick ovens and cooking applications. Our NSF / ANSI food grade refractory firebricks, and high-temperature cements and mortar have a fireclay base to assure exceptional high heat capacity. And because our brick requires no priming, there’s no need for the hearth or deck to be fired before you start baking.
From small stoves to large commercial pizza ovens, we have just the right products to help ensure safety, and cooking efficiency. Our NSF-certified food contact products include:
OVENZZ™ BRICK — ASTM C27 super-duty firebrick, available in numerous shapes and sizes. This product is high fired and requires no priming.
OVENZZ™ LW CAST — lightweight, insulating castable refractory with extraordinary strength and excellent insulating properties. Suitable for casting shapes, pouring in place, and filling large cracks and holes.

OVEN DESIGNS MAY VARY BUT FOOD SAFETY IS NON-NEGOTIABLE
At HarbisonWalker International, food safety comes before all else. Our OVENZZ™ products have been certified by NSF International. And all OVENZZ™ products meet American National Standard / NSF International Standard 51 for use as a food equipment material and are approved for contact with food.
And of course we always have our eye on kitchen safety. Our ceramic fiber blankets and bulk fiber products help keep oven exteriors cool and improve baking environment safety.
