Fire both glass and pottery in the new Paragon Janus kilns


Photo: Top-loading kilns, left to right: Janus-1613, Janus-23, and Janus-27. The front-loading kiln is the Janus-24.

The new Paragon Janus-series kilns can fire both pottery and glass. Heating elements are mounted in the top and sidewalls.

Select between glass and pottery with the flip of a switch. With the switch in the glass position, heat comes from the top elements and the middle sidewall element. With the switch in the pottery position, heat comes from only the sidewall elements.

In the glass mode, fuse and sag large glass projects placed on a single shelf. In the pottery mode, fire to cone 10 (2350°F). You can also fire several shelves of smaller glass pieces using the pottery mode.

The elements in the lid/roof are mounted in a firebrick “ball” groove that eliminates element pins. The element coils are wider than the groove opening, so the elements stay in place without pins. The groove dissipates heat efficiently.

The lid on the Janus-23 and Janus-27 top-loading kilns are easy to lift with the exclusive, patented Paragon spring counter-balance. The LiteLid reduces the strain and wall flex on the kiln body from the pressure of the lid. This lengthens the life of the firebricks. The LiteLid eliminates cumbersome pulleys and ropes.

For easier maintenance, we use 2” high blank wall bricks in the top row of the Janus-23 and Janus-27. Since the brick is without element grooves, it is less susceptible to damage during loading.

The patented control box on the Janus-23 and Janus-27 opens forward for easy maintenance. A folding support arm holds the box in the open position.
