FiberFuse-16

Glass Fusing    Glass Painting   


Paragon FiberFuse-16 Glass Kiln

The kiln has a lid safety switch, which means the power to the elements is automatically turned off when you open the lid. The kiln operates on a common 120 volt household outlet and uses only 1,800 watts. That is the wattage of many hair dryers used in homes throughout America. The heat is safely kept inside the kiln even at its highest temperatures. The kiln uses efficient ceramic fiber insulation and is easy to operate.

Exciting projects you can make

Create vibrant, color-saturated fused and slumped glass in the 120 volt FiberFuse-16. Own this kiln and experiment with new glass designs to your heart’s content. Use the FiberFuse-16 to experiment with reactive glass colors, screen printing on glass, and glass clay. Even fire decals. You will enjoy painting not just with liquid colors but with glass frit and stringers. Enjoy the element of surprise that glass offers.

Ideal for teachers

The FiberFuse-16 fires up to 1700°F (926°C). It is suitable for teaching glass fusing seminars, because it is portable, it plugs into a standard household outlet, and it ships by UPS/FedEx.

Light weight ceramic fiber

Ceramic fiber, the space-age insulation in the FiberFuse-16, absorbs less heat than firebrick kilns do. For this reason the FiberFuse-16 fires and cools faster than larger firebrick kilns. Use the FiberFuse-16 to fire small, quick projects at art centers, college classes, and even engineering laboratories. Test batches of glass pendants or earrings before making large quantities in your main studio kilns.

The lid, walls, and bottom are 2” thick. The sides are wrapped in a protective steel case. A deluxe steel top with welded corners covers the lid for durability. Yes the lid is still light enough to lift with one hand. The wooden lid handle stays cool even during extended firing and annealing times.

Surface-mounted sidewall heating elements

The FiberFuse-16 features new surface-mounted sinusoidal “wavy” elements. This eliminates element grooves, thereby increasing the efficiency of the wall insulation for faster heating. Heat distribution in the FiberFuse-16 is so even that the kiln can fire glass without lid elements.

Built-in stand

The built-in stand, complete with mar-proof rubber feet, raises the kiln off the work surface. Raise the kiln to a convenient height by placing it on a fire-proof steel table.

Heavy duty electrical components

The control panel is slotted for air circulation, so the electrical components stay cool even during long temperature holds. Reboot the controller or turn off the kiln with the convenient toggle switch. Costly heavy-gauge nickel-plated copper wiring is covered with high temperature glass-braided insulation. And, of course, the FiberFuse-16 is made in America by skilled craftsmen and women at our Mesquite, Texas factory.

A lid safety switch is standard

The FiberFuse-16 ships with a safety switch that shuts off the power to the elements when the lid is opened. The temperature controller remains powered with the lid open and automatically resumes firing when you close the lid.

UPS/FexEx delivery

The FiberFuse-16 can ship by UPS within the United States to give you lower shipping cost and faster service. Specially designed UPS-approved cartons and foam padding assure that the kiln will arrive safely. Paragon is centrally located in the U.S. along a major shipping route, which often reduces shipping costs and delivery time. We pass this cost savings directly to you.

Support after the sale

We are here to help you long after the sale should you ever need it. We are open from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Central Standard Time Monday through Thursday. We also have a wide network of independent repair technicians throughout the U.S.

The Magic of Owning a Kiln

At high temperatures, magical things happen to glass. Ask glass artists. They will tell you that the kiln offers many serendipitous surprises. Even after many years as a glass artist, you will still enjoy opening your FiberFuse-16 to see your new creations.

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.

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.
