The top and side firing elements on the GM814 make these units fire very evenly and allow for glass projects to heat at a uniform rate. With a 13.5" chamber height these kilns are much taller than other top firing kilns allowing for tall slumping and drop mold projects. They are equipped standard with the GlassMaster Controller which gives you the precision and versatility needed for complicated firing projects.
Lid Lifter is STANDARD with this model.
As most of you probably already know, glass is very susceptible to uneven heating. The more uneven the heat is in the kiln chamber, the slower you need to fire the kiln. Side fired kiln owners understand this, and are willing to trade the disadvantages of having to slow their programs down for advantages of being able to fire on multiple levels.
Our Studio Kiln Series have lid elements and side elements. This does not mean you can fire on multiple levels. The side elements are there to replenish heat on the bottom of the kiln. This not only keeps the shelf warm (which is important), it also provides for uniform heat top to bottom for artists working with deep molds and drop molds.
