We Feature Kiln Shelves & Posts By                                              
THORLEY REFRACTORIES, INC.

Thorley Kiln shelves and posts are manufactured with superior quality body formulations, well regulated production, quality control, and an exceptionally long and tightly controlled firing cycle.  They are composed of 50% cordierite and 35% mullite, with lesser amounts of corundum and other combined mineralogical forms.   These shelves posses a remarkably high resistance to thermal shock.

Cress and Skutt Kiln models are listed below next to their corresponding shelf size.   However, these shelves fit many other brands of kilns.  When ordering please give make and model number plus inside diameter of Kiln.  Also state thickness of kiln wall, 2-1/2" or 3" brick.

5/8" shelves are recommended to cone 5, although some users find they are adequate to cone 10 when used in electric kilns.  Use 1" shelves for firings from cone 5 to 10 and in gas kilns.  Discretion should be used when using these shelves in gas kilns as heavy reduction can cause shelves to warp and sag even at lower temperatures.
