The FA-44 is a high-quality, small kiln with a convenient front-loading door. With a 1.59 cu ft firing chamber, it is perfect for small to medium-sized classrooms or studios. The Cone 03 firing capacity makes the FA-44 perfect for metal enameling or glass slumping projects. The optional FINE-ART Cabinet Base is great for schools. The extra storage space can accommodate supplies, tools, and works in progress. Additionally, the FA-44 is a very safe kiln to use. The 4” insulation allows for greater efficiency and lower radiant temperature, trapping more heat inside the chamber and away from the user. The front-loading door makes working with the kiln safer and less cumbersome than top loaders. Loading and unloading projects from the firing chamber is easier as well. The Select Fire™ computer control allows for more convenient, reliable, and safer firings. Constructed with highly durable steel frames and 18-guage steel shells, AMACO guarantees customer satisfaction with a five-year manufacturer warranty. The FA-44 is designed for smaller projects and is safe enough for young artists just learning the craft of firing projects.
