Quick Overview

Model - 149 Slider  240 or 208 volt, inside dimensions: 14.5" x 14.5" wide x 9" deep, fires to 1700° F


The 149 Slider square clamshell designed kiln with inside dimensions measuring 14.5" x 14.5" wide x 9" deep has a sliding floor for ease in loading and glass manipulation.  149 Slider is bolted to an 8" heavy angle iron stand and comes completely assembled when shipped.  The gas strut opens the firing chamber with ease and  the sleek wooden handle keeps things cool as you slide the kiln floor out to a fully extended 36" front-to-back.  The model has an element in the lid of the kiln to provide radiant heat needed when fusing temperature is reached and elements in the kiln walls for conductive heat.  Elements in the firing chamber are used to evenly heat the glass piece and the lid element is used when fusing temperature is reached. Models have a maximum temperature range of 1700°F to protect the optional quartz glass viewing window but can be reprogrammed to fire to higher temperatures.  


The 149 Slider comes equipped with pilot light, an 8” heavy angle iron stand, stainless steel jacket, and the Bartlett 12 Key digital RTC-1000 electronic controller. Included in the kiln package are peephole plugs, instruction manuals, warranty card.  Two-year Kiln Limited Warranty.

Receiving Your Kiln

Olympic Kilns packs its merchandise so that it will arrive at its destination undamaged. Olympic orders are FOB origin when they leave our loading dock. This means we hold the carrier's receipt that your order left in good condition. We do not allow any deductions from invoices for damaged ware. It is the receiver's responsibility to understand and comply with standard shipping and receiving practices as described in this section. The carrier is responsible for transporting your freight but not for unloading it. A lift gate is required if you do not have a loading dock for shipments delivered by freight carrier. UPS and FEDEX will deliver smaller shipments to your door.

If you do not have a loading dock, a lift gate for transporting the freight from the truck to ground level is required upon delivery. You will need to request lift gate service when ordering your kiln from your Olympic dealer. Otherwise additional freight charges will be incurred upon delivery of freight. It is your responsibility to move the freight from the truck to its place of use.

Lift gates are available for kilns on 6 ft. x 6 ft. pallets or smaller. Any Commercial Glass Fusing kiln and 20 cubic feet or larger Commercial Electric and Downdraft Gas models require the customer to have a forklift that can move the kiln from the truck to the desired location. If you do not have access to a forklift, check the internet or yellow pages for small moving companies that can take the freight off the long distance carrier and move the freight to the desired location. Give any prospective mover a physical description of the kiln, the weight, and inform them that it is designed to be picked up with a pallet truck or forklift only.


Kiln Location

1. Adequate space - at least 12 inches of space between the kiln and the wall. (However, for operator comfort, allow room to walk around the kiln if maintenance is required. Stackable kilns require tightening of the kiln rings while firing for proper alignment.)

2. All flammable materials such as curtains, plastics, etc. in the area of the kiln should be removed. Determine room size required from the outer dimensions of the kiln you wish to purchase. For commercial kilns, check door width, and if the door is insufficient to allow kiln entry, contact Olympic Kilns to check if modifications can be made to kiln before it is ordered and built.

3. Proper ventilation - Heat can accumulate in restricted areas above both gas and electric kilns if a hood is not used. If the kiln is gas and located in a confined area it is essential that an exhaust hood be place above the kiln and vented to the outside. This ensures removal of heat and exhaust gases, including carbon monoxide. Even if the kiln is outside be sure that the hot exhaust gases do not cause damage. Check all local requirements or codes before installation.

4. If the kiln is to be placed outside, ensure that moisture is not permitted. Use a roof over the kiln or some type water resistant tarp when the kiln is not being fired.

5. Remember to use sheet metal or non-flammable material to shim the legs when leveling the kiln.

Kiln Installation

Position the kiln with the observation holes clearly visible and with the electronic controller within easy reach. For kilns equipped with a power cord, place the kiln to the left of the proper electrical outlet so that the kiln can be plugged in without touching the metal jacket. Because all kilns generate heat the stand or frame should be placed on a concrete floor. Tiles or linoleum could be damaged without this precaution.

If the kiln is to be placed outside, ensure that moisture is not permitted. Use a roof over the kiln or some type water resistant tarp when the kiln is not being fired. Remember to use sheet metal or non-flammable material to shim the legs when leveling the kiln.

Electrical Hook-Up

To provide the performance it was designed to give, your new kiln must have the proper outlet and breaker to supply adequate voltage and amperage. An incorrect connection may cause disappointing or even hazardous results. A qualified electrician needs to be consulted to determine whether your wiring is adequate.

Electric kilns running on 120 volts will plug into a standard outlet but check your breaker to ensure proper performance. Standard electric kilns will run on 240 volts, single phase. If your kiln was ordered 208 volts, single or three-phase power, it will be noted on the nameplate on the kiln. Commercial electric kilns may be wired for 240, 208, 380, or 480 volts; single or three phase. Most commercial kilns require direct wiring and a receptacle outlet is not required.

Any kiln ordered three-phase will be direct wired (there is not a power cord attached to the kiln).
