Create breathtaking glass in the deluxe GL-22ADTSD Professional Series glass kiln. The GL-22ADTSD is proudly made in America by skilled craftsmen and designed for those whose livelihood depends on glass production. The kiln includes features not found on competitive kilns.

Elements in the Top, Walls, and Door

The GL-22ADTSD digital kiln heats from the top, three sides and door for unsurpassed heat distribution. It is 13 1/4” high inside with room to bend glass for curved windows or cabinet doors and to repair lampshades. Make huge glass-fused platters. Crack the door to drag a rod across the softened glass or to emboss designs in the surface. Explore small-to-medium sized casting and pâte de verre. Enjoy the glittering beauty of dichroics. Make treasured gifts.

The GL-series top elements use an element groove that eliminates element pins. The element coils are wider than the groove opening, so the elements stay in place without pins.

Use the kiln’s side heat for taller projects such as drop-out vases sagged through a ring mold. Side elements, seated in dropped, recessed brick grooves, span the three walls in six horizontal rows.

The kiln’s door elements offer unsurpassed heat distribution for difficult pieces. (The door, with elements, is always hinged on the right side.)

Adjust the Ratio of Heat Between the Top and Walls

The kiln uses advanced power ratio technology, pioneered by Paragon, to balance the heat between top and side/door elements. Program the digital controller to balance the heat between the top and sides in increments of 10%. (i.e., 100% top - 0% sides, 50% top - 50% sides, 80% top – 20% sides, etc.) Set the heat balance for any combination desired between the top and sides so that the total heat output equals 100%. Imagine the precise control you will have in adjusting the kiln to slump glass or to improve heat distribution over large fused panels.

Heavy Duty Construction

Paragon’s GL-series are made for years of rigorous firing, as artists all over America can attest. The insulating firebrick, wrapped in heavy-gauge steel, soak up heat for slow, efficient cooling. A double heat shield and air gap between the kiln and ventilated switch box help keep electrical components cool for long, trouble-free service. Costly heavy-gauge nickel-plated copper wiring is covered with high temperature glass-braided insulation.

Spring-Loaded Door Latches

The spring-pressure latch and a ½" recess around the edge of the firebrick door keep the door tightly closed. The door remains rock-steady on a heavy hinge shaft. Four hand lifts aid moving. The base is open in the back and slotted to dissipate heat.

Peepholes

Watch the red-hot glass through two tapered peepholes, drilled one above the other in the wall opposite the switch box. Peephole plugs are included. The optional glass viewing windows are not available on the GL-22ADTSD.


Door Safety Switch

The GL-22ADTSD is equipped with a door safety switch. When you open the door, the switch turns off the power to the elements; the digital controller continues to operate while the elements are off.

Optional Furniture Kit

Recommended furniture kit for the Paragon GL-22 series and equivalent sized kilns. Included:

1 - C-20 Shelf (20” square x 5/8”)

4 – 1/2” long, 1” wide Square Posts

1 lb. Bag Glass Separator

Shipping size: 24” long x 24” wide x 9” high

Glass is fired in the kiln on a shelf. Coat the shelf with glass separator to prevent the glass from sticking to the shelf. Place short posts between the shelf and the kiln bottom to circulate heat around the shelf.

Paragon’s durable cordierite shelves resist warpage and thermal shock. They are volume-stable.


Optional Ceramic Fiber Top

The standard GL-series kiln comes with an insulating firebrick top, grooved for heating elements. The GL-22AD upgrade option is a ceramic fiber top with element grooves. The fiber top helps keep the glass clean during firing.

Optional colors at no extra charge
