Selecting a Kiln
Choosing the best kiln for your application can be an involved process, apart from the initial expense there are such a vast range of options available. This section is designed to assist you to make the correct decision on the type of factors you should consider when making a decision.
Kilns are offered with a range of controller options starting from a simple single programme controller if only firing to one temperature, to a multi programme controller if a number of programmes are to be used. We will guide you through any questions you have.
Siting a Kiln
The following is based upon many years of experience and is designed to help you to make the most of your kiln whether it is an existing one or a new purchase. Correct siting of a kiln is important for a number of reasons, not least from a Health and Safety perspective. If you have any areas of concerns then please do not hesitate to contact us.

All these units will need a minimum of exhaust ductwork to atmosphere, coupled with a heat collection canopy depending on site requirements. This equipment can either be supplied or supplied and installed subject to a quotation on either provision of building drawing or a visit to the site by us.
Delivery and Installation
Standard delivery is with the kiln delivered on a pallet to ground floor external doorway. The kiln will be offloaded from the delivery vehicle.
Non-standard delivery can be provided to offload the kiln and placed into position on a ground floor [no steps], or alternatively on an upper floor via a lift of suitable size and capacity within the building. Our delivery driver would require assistance.
All access points must be of sufficient dimensions to accept the kiln in fully constructed from.
All driveways and access points to ground floor doorway must be level, flat and not of loose construction, ie gravel, loose stonework etc.
When access is a limiting factor we can provide the kiln in split form, or arrange for the kiln to be built on site. The charge for on-site build or split delivery is not included in our list of prices and can only be offered on full receipt of access details.
