The Glass Vault 22 is a smaller version of our 36" model, but it's still all about power and versatility! This kiln has most of the features of the taller model, but with less depth at a lower price.
This special production model is specially designed for glass production. This is the perfect kiln designed for mold drying, wax burnout, crucible casting, fusing & slumping, and long glass annealing schedules.
THESE PACKAGES HAVE EVERYTHING A GLASS ARTIST NEEDS:
- Sentinel Touch Screen Controller
- OPTIONAL: Ventmaster (Auxiliary Output Plug - 240V) digitally controlled
- Door Power Interrupt Switch
- Fiber Lid w/ Elements
- Door With Elements
- Solid State Relays
- OPTIONAL: Castors
THE GLASS VAULT 22 comes with a Sentinel Touch Screen Controller.
You can choose to add and the Orton Ventmaster System fully installed with a 240-volt Auxiliary Output Plug. This allows the controller to automatically control when the vent cycles on and off during each segment. This is important because it allows casting molds to be dried in half the time allowing the moisture to burn off without damaging your elements and metal parts in the kiln. PLUS! It allows for proper air exchange in the kiln when burning off fiber particulate (THINFIRE and PAPYRUS papers or fiber blanket), leaving a clean kiln environment, with no cloudy glass. It also allows you to burn the wax out of a mold and avoid the slimy, sticky film build-up on your fire bricks that can sometimes occur during that process. A vent helps keep your kiln clean-clean-clean! In glasswork that's an imperative!!
THE GLASS VAULT 22 features the upgraded 4-sided heat chamber with Added Door Elements which deliver heat from all 4 sides. This is perfect for the longest and evenest drops and making sure drip cast molds are perfectly filled in all the crevices to full capacity. This special kiln comes equipped with Solid State Relays for tighter temperature control and a Door Switch that cuts the power when the door is opened, this is ideal for shop safety.
THE GLASS VAULT 22 also features a Fiber lid with elements to eliminate brick dust falling onto your work, plus a top firing option too! Sometimes you need more heat where the largest amount of glass is, this allows you to control each zone independently!
THE GLASS VAULT 22 fires ceramics as well. With the ability to fire to 2350F, the Glass Vault 22 lets you make your own molds, or switch to working with ceramics when the mood suits you. This kiln is perfect for multi-disciplinary studios and artists with dual backgrounds that like to work with dual mediums.
We designed our dream kiln with the engineers at Paragon! We know you're going to love it too!

Amazing kiln, but not as pictured
The kiln we bought is amazing and the help from Paul at Kiln Frog has been fantastic! However, the kiln that was pictured on the site is not the kiln we received because Paragon upgraded to a new style. Please note, the kiln is wonderful!!!! The problem is that Paragon sent it with the wrong instructions and wiring diagrams. Kiln Frog has done everything to help us through learning about our kiln, I just wish that Paragon was more diligent in getting the proper documentation to the consumer.
