I'm building a solar powered wood drying kiln and would appreciate some input from members. I have a wood burner to heat the downstairs of my house and also my wife does a bit of woodturning, so I'm always looking for free wood for both. Both requires the wood to be dry hence the kiln
I was going to single glaze but I think it might be a better option to double glazing as it lets heat from the sun in but doesn't let it out so quickly I've been given a pile of toughened, heat resistant glass and I don't know if it'll let the suns rays will get through as good as normal glass.....does anyone know the answer or have any comments.
no it wont stop the rays from entering, but will reduced it if its tinted, toughened glass cannot be cut, without shattering. pilkinton glass has a wide range of glass for different uses try asking them for further info try www.pilkington.com
