ThermaXX Jackets was asked for expert insulation advice concerning a barbecue that was placed too close, in the customer’s opinion, to the exterior side of the RV for safe operation of the BBQ. BBQ’s can reach temperatures of 400°F and above, which, when placed too close to a fiberglass surface could cause serious problems. The biggest worry was not fire, although that was a consideration. The main worry was discoloration of the exterior portion of the RV directly behind the BBQ. Additionally the BBQ itself did not come with any kind of a weather cover. Our customer was concerned that if the BBQ was left outside that over time the BBQ components would seriously deteriorate!
Thermaxx made a custom “Heat Shield” that was strapped to the bbq support system that was directly on the RV. The Heat Shield was made of a high temperature Teflon/fiberglass cloth that can withstand temperatures up to 600° for the covering and an extreme high temperature ceramic paper insulation was used as the insulation core. The cover and insulation were sewn together to make the Heat Shield with Kevlar thread. To address the actual BBQ and the weather, Thermaxx made a custom WeatherMaxx cover that is perfectly tailored to fit the BBQ. Now the fiberglass gelcoat is safe from heat and the BBQ is safe from the weather!! Thermaxx Guarantees the RV Heat Shield and the BBQ WeatherMaxx cover for Five Years!!
