Universal Dry Kiln Manufacturing – They manufacture the rolling door carrier.
The company is in business in Indianapolis, IN, and can provide any additional parts needed.
There are two custom made urethane/panel steel insulated doors surrounded by welded aluminum frames.
We custom made these doors for our 40′ wide kiln opening – they are each about 12′ High x 22′ Long.
These doors worked really well.
They covered the front of our 20,000 bf kiln and provided full access.
One door rolled in front of the other, so they were a compact way to access the full kiln area.
Doors hang on hooks – the carrier picks them up and rolls them aside, hanging them to access the kiln.
It worked like a charm!
The most difficult part of a custom dry kiln is the sealing and insulating of the doors.
The rest is basically a big, insulated room and a heat & dehumidification source.
Nyle and Ebac both offer kiln systems, but neither provide for the doors.
