- We arrange delivery to your door, Australia wide via AirRoad.
- Kilns are shipped on a Pallet and the Kiln is delivered using a tailgate lifter for unloading.
- Please be aware that delivery is via courier and is limited in scope. The driver will be able to use a tailgate lifter to get it off the truck and can move the kiln a reasonable distance while on its pallet using a pallet jack.
- Please understand you may need up to 120cm of doorway clearance and that the pallet jack has limitations such as grass/gravel/steps or bumps etc. The courier is not responsible for unpacking the kiln nor removing it from its delivery pallet.
- Delivery quotes include packaging and insurance.
- It’s simply then a matter of unpacking the Kiln and taking off the pallet. (How to Video: Taking a Kiln off the pallet).
The short answer is maybe, but you must ensure that it can't get wet from rain from that storm that happens once in a while with horizontal rain.
The Kiln is an electrical device and is not IP rated so you must ensure that no water or moisture can get on the electrics.
As the casing and frame is made from aluminium the kiln won't have any rust issues.
- The shed meets the minimum clearance requirements of 200mm on all sides and 600mm above. eg for the Hobby Fire Max you'd need a shed with min dimensions of 2400x1200x2300mm (WxDxH)
- The shed has at least two windows that can be left open to ensure adequate cross ventilation.
- The shed is completely painted or made from colour bond both sides including fittings (Kiln fumes are very caustic so all zinc or gal treated metal will rust rather quickly)
- Don't keep anything flammable in that shed. (That includes the petrol can for the lawn mower!)
