Important Shipping Information about Kilns
(Shipping Estimates Will Not Be Correct)

 The shipping estimate for your order that you are quoted in check out will not reflect the actual
shipping total of the kiln - kilns are drop shipped separately from the manufacturer, so the shipping totals for all orders that include kilns need to be calculated by our customer service representatives.

You will be contacted by one of our customer service representatives once your order has been processed and your shipping total has been figured.

If the manufacturer has the kiln you've ordered in stock it will be shipped fairly soon. However,
please note that shipping may be delayed 2-5 weeks if the manufacturer does not have the kiln
in stock. This is especially true during the holiday season and other busy times of the year.


The Paragon GL-44AD Glass Kiln

Made in America

The deluxe GL-44AD 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 or glass decals. Experiment with reactive glass colors, screen printing on glass, painting with frit and stringers, and glass weaving. The GL-44AD is proudly made in America by skilled workers. It is designed for those whose livelihood depends on glass production.

Industrial-Grade Relays

The kiln includes features not found on competitive kilns. For instance, mercury relays are standard on this kiln for your peace of mind. Relays send power to the elements on command from the digital controller. Mercury relays found on the GL-44AD are industrial-grade and far outlast mechanical relays. The life of the quiet, reliable mercury relay has been measured in millions of on/off cycles.

Interior Dimensions: 22"wide 44" long x 16" deep

The 16" depth is ideal for glass sagging. The robust Sentry 12 key digital controller is standard. The GL-44AD brick bottom holds two 20" square shelves. Cover shelves with fiber paper when large projects overlap shelves.

The GL-44AD has four peepholes along the front. When ordering the optional Orton KilnVent, be sure to specify whether you want peepholes. The kiln comes with welded mounting plates for optional 2" casters.

Lid Counter-Balance, Pinless Lid Elements

The lid is easy to lift with Paragon's exclusive LiteLid spring counter-balance. The GL-44AD comes with two LiteLid assemblies. (We are the only kiln manufacturer with the patented LiteLid system.) The lid is insulated with 1" ceramic fiber and 3" ceramic fiberboard. Replaceable heating elements are mounted in lid fiberboard grooves. The groove eliminates element pins since the element coils are wider than the groove opening.

Reinforced Steel Frame

2 1/2" insulating firebrick lines the walls and bottom. A welded 2" tubular steel frame reinforces the kiln for long life. We are so confident in the GL-44AD that we back it with a two year warranty.

Rigorous Construction

Paragon's GL-44AD is made for years of rigorous firing. 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. The thermocouple, which senses temperature inside the kiln, is protected with a high-nickel stainless steel sheath for long life.

The Joy of Digital Firing

You will be amazed at the convenience of digital firing. The reliable solid-state Sentry controller continually monitors the firing so you can spend your time productively without closely watching the kiln. (Please remember, however, to check the kiln during firing and to monitor it near the expected shutoff time.) The sealed touch pad keeps out dust and is easy to wipe clean.

Paragon's innovative controller will help you achieve consistent results from one firing to the next. The controller has powerful features that you will enjoy using. Yet we have also worked hard to make the controller user-friendly.

Do you ever wonder how much electricity your kiln uses? The digital controller can figure this for you with the press of a button. Find out how little a kiln actually costs to fire.

Water-Base Paint

The GL-44AD has a durable high temperature, water-base finish. We chose water-base paint because of the low emissions during spraying. This creates a safer working environment for our employees and cuts down on pollution.

Save on Shipping

Paragon is centrally located in Mesquite, Texas, along a major shipping route. This reduces shipping costs and delivery time to our customers. We pass the reduced shipping costs directly to you. To reduce freight damage, we ship the GL-44AD in a custom-built, carrier-approved wooden crate.
