Model – 149 Slider 240 or 208 volt
Inside dimensions: 14.5″ x 14.5″ wide x 9″ deep, fires to 1700° F
The 149 Slider square clamshell designed kiln with inside dimensions measuring 14.5″ x 14.5″ wide x 9″ deep has a sliding floor for ease in loading and glass manipulation. 149 Slider is bolted to an 8″ heavy angle iron stand and comes completely assembled when shipped. The gas strut opens the firing chamber with ease and the sleek wooden handle keeps things cool as you slide the kiln floor out to a fully extended 36″ front-to-back. The model has an element in the lid of the kiln to provide radiant heat needed when fusing temperature is reached and elements in the kiln walls for conductive heat. Elements in the firing chamber are used to evenly heat the glass piece and the lid element is used when fusing temperature is reached. Models have a maximum temperature range of 1700°F to protect the optional quartz glass viewing window but can be reprogrammed to fire to higher temperatures.
The 149 Slider comes equipped with a pilot light, an 8” heavy angle iron stand, stainless steel jacket, and the Bartlett 3 Key controller. Data is entered by scrolling through the up and down arrows for the ramp/hold programming. Included in the kiln package are peephole plugs, and instruction manuals. Two-year Kiln Limited Warranty.
