Service & Safety

It is essential that all kilns are serviced on a regular basis to ensure that they continue to give the best possible results. Like any other equipment it is important to have kilns checked and serviced by qualified engineers on a regular basis to ensure that they continue to operate and perform in a safe and efficient manner and to avoid a potentially shortened life of the kiln.   Here at Kilns and Furnaces we have a dedicated Service Department which ensures that our kilns give many years of service.

Our Service Engineers operate Nationwide and are fully trained, company approved and CRB checked.
