The No. 811 produces 1,320,000 BTU per hour using three modulating gas burners with a
floor-mounted combustion air blower (not shown in the photo). The 7-inch thick
insulated walls are made of  five inches of 2,300 F-rated ceramic fiber and two-inch block
insulation. The 6 1/2-inch thick floor insulation is made of 4-1/2 inches of 2,300 F-rated
firebrick and two-inch block insulation.  Vertical lift doors at each end of
the workspace provide further insulation.

A remote, free-standing control panel (not shown in the photo) is also
included with this Grieve furnace, which features all safety equipment
required by IRI, FM and NFPA Standard 86 for gas-heated equipment.

No. 811 was entirely designed, engineered, built and fully tested by Grieve.
