Product: GL-64AD Kiln, Model/SKU: 6461141AGP, Price: $8,496.60

GL-64AD

Glass Fusing    Glass Painting    Glass Slumping   


The deluxe GL-64AD 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 small pieces. The GL-64AD is proudly made in America by skilled workers. It is designed for those whose livelihood depends on glass production.

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-64AD 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 x 64” long x 16” high

The 16” depth is ideal for glass sagging. Optional sidewall heat offers greater control of sagging and bending. The Sentry 12 key digital controller is standard.

The GL-64AD has eight peepholes along the front. When ordering the Orton KilnVent, be sure to specify whether you want peepholes. Optional 2” solid steel casters require factory-welded mounting plates, so specify at the time of order.

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-64AD comes with three 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.

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-64AD that we back it with a two year warranty.

Paragon’s GL-64AD 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.

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.

The GL-64AD 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.

The GL-64AD brick bottom holds three 20” square shelves; the GL-44AD holds two. Cover shelves with fiber paper when large projects overlap shelves.

Furniture Kit for GL-64AD

The glass must always be fired on a kiln shelf rather than directly on the kiln’s firebrick bottom.

3 - C-20 - 20” Square Shelves
