Paragon GF-85B Glass Fusing Kiln

Our first glass fusing kilns, the GF-series, have passed the test of time since 1985. They helped start the glass fusing revolution.

“I’ve fired your kilns all over the country during my seminars. I never hear complaints about your kilns. They are reliable and last a hell of a long time.” —Dan Fenton, Fenton Glass Studio, Oakland, California

The GF-85B has one infinite control and safety pilot light. This kiln can be ordered for any electrical system world wide.

The GF-85B lid elements use a new element groove that eliminates element pins. The element coils are wider than the groove opening, so the elements stay in place without pins.

  • Pinless heating elements in lid
  • Two hand-lifts
  • Lock-in lid support
  • Galvanized steel base
  • Reversible brick bottom
  • Heavy-duty stand with mar-proof plastic feet

Glass must be fired on a ceramic shelf; never directly on the kiln firing chamber bottom.
