Built-in Braai Installation Guidelines

This is a basic guideline for the installation of a Megamaster Built-In Braai. For further information and the full installation manual for your specific Megamaster product please send email us at info@megamaster.co.za

  1. Construct brick support walls for the unit to your personal desired height. Concrete lintels can be used for the base support.
  2. Position the unit and cover the back, sides and top with insulation, before unit is bricked in. Any type of fire-glass wool or ceiling insulation can be used. Not included with this product.
  3. To allow for expansion, ensure a gap of 20mm between back and sides of the body of the unit and the brickwork.
  4. Also make provision for electrical wiring for the light fitting on the left side of the braai in the holes provided.
  5. Chimney height with a minimum of 2.0m is critical for a proper draw. It is recommended that one steel flue pipe be installed. The remainder of the chimney may be constructed from brickwork. You may choose to use more than one flue pipe.
  6. The inner dimensions of the chimney must not be less than the flue outlet opening on the top of the unit. Example 230mm X 400mm.
  7. Steel flue linings will provide a smooth surface for better draw and protect the brickwork against heat corrosion.
  8. Use standard flashing material and procedure to waterproof the roof around the chimney. Not supplied with this product.
  9. The flue can be offset to avoid obstructions, providing sufficient support to prevent sagging. 45 Degree bends are available at Megamaster Retailers.
  10. A rotating cowl is necessary to prevent down drafts on windy days and will prevent rain from entering the chimney.  The chimney and the cowl must be 100 % level and the gap between the lowest part of the cowl and the chimney must be minimal. A “bolt-on base” is supplied with the unit. (Not included in contractors or plasma models).
  11. After installation, all exposed parts of the chimney and rotating cowl can be painted with good quality heat resistant black enamel paint.
  12. The rotating cowl axle must be greased regularly to avoid rust. The unit is supplied with 2 x stainless steel ball bearings to allow the cowl to rotate freely. Slide these two bearing into the hollow round tube of the base. Grease is NOT included with this product.
  13. The brass knob supplied can be fitted by fastening the screw supplied from behind the door panel into the hole on the rear of the knob. The Plasma models have a door knob pre-fitted.
  14. Before having your first fire, a normal size fire is to be made and burned until no paint smell remains.
