The Paragon GL-44ADTSD Glass Kiln

The deluxe GL-44ADTSD Professional Series glass kiln will help you to unlock your potential as a glass designer. The kiln quickly pays for itself by producing large glass panels, curved windows, lampshades, or production loads of glass pendants.

Heating elements in the lid and walls

The 16” depth is ideal for glass sagging. The sidewall heating elements, mounted in all four sides, offer greater control of sagging and bending.

The GL-44ADTSD has four peepholes along the front. The GL-44ADTSD brick bottom holds two 20” square shelves. Cover shelves with fiber paper when large projects overlap shelves.

Lid counter-balance, pinless lid elements

The massive lid is easy to lift with Paragon's patented LiteLid spring counter-balance, which does away with cumbersome pulleys and cords and dramatically reduces lid weight. Unlike pulleys and weights, the LiteLid is self-contained on the kiln. There is no need to drill holes in the ceiling for pulleys. The LiteLid sharply reduces wear between the lid and top rim of firebrick. The truss and floating lid allow expansion of the lid. The GL-44AD comes with two LiteLid assemblies. The lid is insulated with 1” ceramic fiber and 3” ceramic fiberboard. Replaceable heating elements mount in lid fiberboard grooves. The groove eliminates element pins since the element coils are wider than the groove opening.

Reinforced steel frame

3” insulating firebrick lines the walls. A welded 2" tubular steel frame reinforces the kiln for long life. We are so confident in the GL-44ADTSD that we back it with a two year warranty.

Heavy Duty Industrial Relays

The kiln is built with Heavy-Duty Industrial relays, tested into the millions of cycles.

Optional (Highly Recommended) Furniture Kit

Recommended furniture kit for the Paragon GL-44 series, Pearl-44 series, and equivalent sized kilns. Includes:

2 C-20 Shelves (20” square x 5/8”)

8 – 1/2” long, 1” wide Square Posts

2 lb. 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 warping and thermal shock. They are volume-stable.
