Gas kilns require proper ventilation when firing, especially if the kiln is going to be fired indoors. Olympic builds stainless and galvanized steel gas vent hoods for the updraft and downdraft gas kilns. The vents are square in design and have a 10″ diameter at the top for a non-flammable double-walled exhaust pipe to extend out or to go through the wall or ceiling to the outside.
DownDraft kilns built with the vent option will have an iron frame on the outside at the top of the kiln for the vent to attach to once the kiln has been set in its location. Vents are crated separately from kiln shipments and have an estimated shipping weight of 200 lbs.
