eFL Series Front-Loading Kilns

The First Front-Loading Kiln for the Price of a Top-Loader

eFL Series Front-Loading Kilns are designed with the same arched bricks L&L has used successfully for 30 years in our square and rectangular DaVinci kilns. The sides and top are arched for super strength. The base, door and door frame are formed from precision sheet metal to be both lightweight and strong. Two shelves provide optional storage for kiln furniture and structural support. Rated for cone 10. These kilns ship easily by common carrier, are inexpensive to buy, install, and maintain.

Note on Receiving the Kiln: Although these kilns are much lighter than a Hercules or an Easy-Load kiln they still take some effort to remove from the pallet. If you do not have a forklift available be sure to have 4 strong people to help move the kiln off the pallet. If your kiln comes with the caster option then you will be able to move it immediately. A pallet jack can lift the kiln also once it is on the floor. Also note that the kiln is top heavy and be careful of moving it up or down an incline or steps. Again have 4 strong people available if you do not have the proper equipment like a forklift.
