Limitations? Not with the Studio Pro 28. The Studio Pro 28 offers both front and top access for full artistic control. We call it Dual Access Design and it means you're not limited to front-load only or top-load only designs. With the Studio Pro 28 you get both.
Front load is perfect for glass placement directly on the large 24" x 24" kiln shelf. There are no walls to avoid or work around, just straight to the shelf. Horizontal glass manipulation like raking and combing are unrestricted.
Top Load makes loading and positioning of forms and molds easy and exact. Glass placement for slumping and draping operations is very easy and precise when coming in from the top. Top load also allows for vertical glass manipulation such as embossing. If you plan to slump and/or drape you'll want top load.
The Studio Pro 28 is available with a variety of controls from the TAP touchscreen to the economical Set-Pro. It's also available with our Quiet Drive Solid State output that delivers tight temperature control, longer heating element life and no relays to ever replace.
Like all of our kilns, the Studio Pro 28 is equipped with our exclusive Swing View Adjustable Enclosure. The swing view positions the controls in a pivoting enclosure that can be rotated up for a natural and relaxed position for programming and use. This same enclosure can then be rotated to the down position so controls can be viewed from across the studio. Programming your kiln should not be an exercise in gymnastics and the swing view is a welcome feature.
The Studio Pro 28 is delivered in two easy to manage sections so kiln location options abound. Navigating tight hallways or doors for setup is not an issue.
