L&L designs and builds custom square and rectangular DaVinci kilns. Sizes are very flexible.
The top is typically made of 4" thick ceramic fiber modules. The top is typically lifted off with an overhead crane or forklift but we have designs for pneumatically assisted lift off and swing-away lids.
Temperatures are limited to 2350°F.
Below is a rendering of how we make these now:
