HD Fiber Board

I need to replace the Fiber Board lid on my Glassglow kiln. It doesn't look too hard, just need to find some materia,l looks as if I need a 30x48" piece 2" thick. It doesn't appear there are any other support for this other than the edges, so rigidity is importa.nt. Suggestions?

Re: Light weight Kiln Shelf

You might also try the Armstrong Ceiling tile that Warm Glass sells, it is light weight and fairly durable.
