CoreLite kiln shelves, which have a honey-comb, hollow-core center, are lighter and flatter than standard shelves. Customers often choose CoreLite shelves to help reduce back strain from loading/unloading kilns.
We all know that replacing kilns shelves is expensive. Corelites are designed to last longer. Due to their I-beam structure and higher mullite composition, CoreLites are less likely to sag and crack than standard shelves.
Simply using CoreLites will lower your firing costs. The hollow-core structure reduces total mass. Because of its lower mass, heating a Corelite shelf requires less energy than heating a solid shelf and less energy means it will cost less to fire the kiln.
This half-round kiln shelf is 15" diameter and 5/8" thick. We do not recommended it for raku, salt, soda or wood firings and find it performs well in electric firings. It will fit any round kiln that has an internal diameter 17" or larger. This shelf is recommended for the following Skutt kilns: 818, 818-3, 822 and 822-3.
