    Product quality and customer service

    Bernadette Boutier of Grapevine, Texas wrote, “I proudly show off my Fusion-7 to my stained glass buddies. I am not the usual hot glass artist, but rather an odd duck that enjoys refurbishing antique stained glass windows. Much of the glass used in those old windows can never be made again due to the nature of the silicas, colors, and manner in which they were manufactured 100 years ago. I am left to either use new glass made by the various glass companies where the color is not quite right, or I work (play) on fusing several types of new glass that looks like (or comes close) to the broken glass that I am trying to replace. I've enjoyed the experimentation, and I get some awesome colors and textures.

    “I decided that I wanted a Paragon for several reasons: I had heard that the quality was tops, and I found that to be true,” Bernadette continued. “Second, the service by Paragon and the folks who work there is second to none. I could go on and on about why I like my Fusion-7, but in a nutshell, I love it because it is the largest kiln that will run off a 120 volt line, and it is so very versatile, with more room than you would think when working with relatively large pieces of glass. It is a great product, and you guys just keep on keeping on with what you're doing.”

    Judith Conway of glass e-book fame wrote, “The Paragon Fusion-7 is an excellent kiln. Operating on regular household current, it is an easy addition to your home/studio. And Paragon offers better-than-excellent customer service. We have sold many, many Fusion-7's, and all our customers/students/friends recommend them to others as both a great starter kiln and a kiln to keep on hand for both test firings and smaller firings and smaller load firings in the years to come.”

    The excitement of fusing glass

    Paragon’s Fusion-series digital hot glass kilns are packed with exciting features. They come in 6, 7, 8 and 10-sided versions. Imagine the glass you could fuse and slump with the Fusion-7. Make bowls, pendants, earrings, cufflinks, and even bracelets. Enjoy glittering dichroic glass. Make treasured gifts for your friends and family. When you own a Paragon kiln, you can experiment with new glass ideas to your heart’s content.

    Pinless element grooves

    The Fusion-7 heats from the top. For reliability, the elements are mounted in pinless element grooves. Since the element coils are wider than the groove opening, the elements do not need pins.

    18” tall stand, galvanized base plate

    An 18” tall stand comes standard with the Fusion-7. The stand raises the kiln to a comfortable height for loading and operation. A heavy galvanized steel base completely covers the reversible firebrick bottom. The base 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.

    Insulating firebricks

    The Fusion-7 is made with insulating firebricks, which store heat for slow cooling. Thus, smaller, thinner projects may not need additional heat during the annealing range. The lid is 3” thick and the walls and bottom are 2 1/2” thick.

    Features of the Fusion-7

    • Heating elements in the lid
    • Pinless element grooves
    • 2 ½” insulating refractory firebrick in walls and bottom; 3” firebrick lid
    • Sloped switch box for easy operation of the digital controller
    • ¼” heavy duty sheathed Type-K thermocouple
    • Lock-in lid support
    • Full-formed galvanized steel base
    • Louvered switch box, heavy duty wiring
    • Tapered peephole with plug for a wide view

    The Fusion-7 ships by UPS/FedEx. Enjoy lower shipping cost and faster service. Specially designed cartons and foam padding assure that the kiln will arrive safely.

    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.
