Front-loading kilns offer the best of convenience!
In heat-treating kilns, you have concentrated heat on the sides on a narrow tube. The heat is just where you need it!
You'll get the volume of a top loader and the convenience of a front loader. Front-loaders offer easier access to projects within the kiln. In glass models whether its loading drip crucibles for castings, drying molds, deep drops, multi-stage slump molds, or other projects front loaders reign supreme. In ceramic loading from back to front makes it much easier to position pieces and parts for the best heat penetration.
No matter your height, or the depth of your kiln, a front-loader can have some great add-ons that make working on any medium easier. You can add elements on the door and roof that consolidate heat just like top loader! It really is the best of both worlds!
