FUSION8

Glass Fusing    Glass Painting    Glass Slumping   


Paragon Fusion-8 Glass Fusing Kiln

The 8-sided Fusion-8 will open a world of creativity for you. Fire silk-screening on glass and decals, paint with frit and stringers, fuse recycled bottles. Experiment with glass weaving. Make kiln loads of glass pendants.

Even Heat Distribution from the Top and Sides

The Fusion-8 firebrick lid heating elements are seated in pinless grooves. A sidewall element, which is protected in recessed firebrick wall grooves, adds to temperature uniformity.

18” Tall Stand, galvanized base plate

An 18” tall stand comes standard with the Fusion-8. The stand raises the kiln to a comfortable height for loading and operation. A heavy galvanized steel base covers the reversible brick bottom completely. It folds up under the stainless case on all sides to strengthen the firing chamber. This is one more assurance that your Paragon kiln is built to last.

Basic Fusion-8 features

The Fusion-8 is 11” deep and includes a heating element in the sidewalls. Enjoy enhanced heat control with fusing, slumping, and embossing.

  • Heating elements in top with pinless element groove
  • Heating element in the sidewalls of the Fusion-8
  • 2 ½” insulating refractory firebrick in walls and bottom; 3” firebrick lid
  • Lock-in lid support
  • Full-formed galvanized steel base
  • Louvered switch box, heavy duty wiring
  • Switch box is sloped for comfortable operation of the controller
  • Tapered peephole with plug for a wide view

Detailed instruction manuals

Included with your kiln is a printed controller instruction manual, a printed glass manual, and blank firing record sheets. The manuals have been painstakingly researched and are written in plain English, printed in two colors, and are fully illustrated.

Paragon customer support

When you buy a Paragon kiln, you become a family member of the Texas factory. Should you ever need help, we are here long after the sale. We are open from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Central Standard Time, Monday through Thursday. Our expanded hours allow us to serve customers in differing time zones. Not only can you phone us directly; we also have a wide network of repair technicians throughout the U.S.

Thermocouple with “special limit” wire

The thermocouple senses temperature inside the kiln. It is the small rod that extends into the firing chamber. The ¼” wide Type-K, 14-gauge, exposed-tip thermocouple is made with special-limit wire for superior accuracy. The exposed tip gives the controller a fast response time for even temperatures during holds. The thermocouple is made in America to our exacting standards.

Kiln Comes with Heavy Duty Rolling Stand, 18” Square x 18” High

A deluxe kiln stand with locking casters is included with the kiln. Enjoy the convenience of rolling the kiln out of the way when it is not in use. The stand is rock solid. It fits together with interlocking components that assemble with one size of bolt. (Ships unassembled.)

The 18” tall stand raises the kiln to a convenient height for loading and unloading. Should you need a vent, merely slide the collection cup of an Orton vent into a mounting bracket on the top of the stand.

Designed for production

Paragon’s warranty is not affected by frequency of use. Fire your new kiln every day if you want, even in commercial settings. That will have no effect on the warranty period.

Optional colors at no extra charge

Brighten your studio with color! Order your kiln in one of our standard colors at no extra charge . . . berry, black, blue, hot pink, jade, navy, purple, or turquoise. Scroll down to see color samples in the options section.
