The CS-14D heats from the top for even heat distribution across the glass surface. The lid elements are mounted in pinless element grooves. Element pins are no longer needed because the element coils are wider than the groove opening. This helps eliminate dust in the firing chamber.
Kiln Lifts Out of the Way for Easy Loading
The CS-14D is dual-opening: You can open the kiln by lifting the kiln body or by lifting only the lid. Lift the kiln body out of the way to assemble glass directly on the shelf; open the lid to load glass over a slumping mold. This is a perfect kiln for combing and screen melts.
The kiln is easy to open because of two counter-weight springs mounted under the kiln. The kiln base extends 4” in the back to support the weight of the kiln when in the open position. The base comes with mar-proof rubber feet.
The clamshell kiln can be opened by lifting the kiln body or the kiln lid, but never both at the same time. The kiln is equipped with safety latches on the side. The gravity-operated top latch holds the lid closed; the lever-operated bottom latch holds the kiln body closed.
Protective Steel Lid Cover
The top of the lid is protected with a painted sheet metal cover. The sheet metal is bent to cover the sides of the lid, and the steel is welded at the corners. You will be amazed at the sturdy construction that has made Paragon kilns renowned. The self-adjusting lid floats at fusing temperatures.
Reliability at the Heart of the Kiln
The CS-14D has a two-year warranty. The temperature sensor, called a thermocouple, is sheathed with high-nickel stainless steel for long life. A heavy steel base supports the reversible brick bottom completely. These features are extra assurance that your Paragon kiln is built to last. No extra stand is needed.
The reliable CS-14D has dual mechanical relays for long life. The digital controller sends a signal to the relays to turn on the heating elements. The two relays in the CS-14D last longer than the single relay of competitive kilns because of the reduced amperage going through each relay.
For your convenience, flip the switch on the front panel to turn off power to the controller when the kiln is not in use. The large, comfortable wooden lid and kiln handles stay cool.
The CS-14D is painted with a durable high temperature, water-based finish. We chose water-base paint because of the low emissions during spraying. This creates a safer working environment for our employees and cuts down on pollution.
My kiln is fantastic. I’m a glass fuser and having a clam shell kiln is winner winner chicken dinner. It is so easy to load, program, and it provides consistent firings. I also must say that my customer service with Kiln frog was wonderful. If you’re on the fence about getting this style Kiln, splurge and get it !! It makes loading so much easier.
Great service from kiln frog
I recently purchased my very first kiln and a friend recommended buying from Kiln Frog. Kiln Frog is so helpful about what to expect during the shipping and provides easy to follow set up instructions. I would definitely recommend them
