OPTIONAL Tall Heavy Duty Rolling Stand, 24” Square x 18” High

A deluxe, rock-solid kiln stand with locking casters, is now an option. STANDS ARE NOT INCLUDED. Please check the options box if you would like a stand included with your kiln order. You will enjoy the convenience of effortlessly moving the kiln out of the way when not in use. The stand is rock solid. It fits together with interlocking components that assemble with one size of bolt. (Ships unassembled.)

The 18” tall stand raises the kiln to a convenient height for loading and unloading. Should you need a vent, merely slide the collection cup of an Orton vent into a mounting bracket on the top of the stand

The Paragon Ovation 1013 will inspire you to make glass. It is rugged, reliable, and designed to last. Enjoy fusing, slumping, pate de verre, and painting in this large production kiln. If you have been firing a smaller kiln, you will be amazed at the space inside the Ovation 1013. Fire several large projects such as bowls or platters in one load.

Lift the lid effortlessly

A dual spring-assisted lid supports transfer the weight of the lid to a massive hinge assembly on the back of the kiln. This reduces the stress on the kiln wall to give your kiln the long life that Paragon kilns are famous for. 

Pinless element grooves

The Ovation 1013 lid elements use an element groove that eliminates element pins. The element coils are wider than the groove opening, so the elements stay in place without pins. The sidewall element coils are protected in dropped, recessed grooves. 

Optional Mercury Relay

The Paragon Ovation-1013 has two mechanical relays for long life. (The relays turn on the heating elements after receiving a signal from the digital controller.) The two relays last longer than the single relay of competitive kilns because less amperage goes through each relay.

You can also order optional, industrial-grade mercury relays for your kiln. This type of relay is a must for long annealings and soaks because the mercury relay is not only quiet but also outlasts other relays by a wide margin.

Optional Solid State Relays

Optional solid-state relays that are mounted to aluminum heat sinks. SSRs last far longer than standard mechanical relays and offer better temperature control during holds. SSRs also have no moving parts to wear out. You will also notice that SSRs are silent. The only sound you will hear is just the reassuring hum of the heating elements.

Sloped control panel

The Ovation-1013 comes with a sloped control panel for easy viewing and programming. The digital keypad is mounted high in the switch box. This, combined with the 18” stands, brings the controller to a comfortable height.

The control box is finished in a durable high temperature, water-based blue paint. We use water-based paint because of the low emissions during spraying. This not only cuts down on pollution but also creates a better working environment for our employees.

Optional windows

The Ovation-1013 comes with two large you can add, tapered peepholes. They offer a wide view of the firing chamber with little heat loss. Or you can order the kiln with optional glass windows, which replace the peepholes.

The peepholes, both sides of the lid, and the top rim of the sidewall firebrick are hardened and sealed with a special refractory coating to protect the ware from dust.

Kiln Frog Rocks!

I purchased a Paragon Ovation 1013 from Kiln Frog. I researched the interweb to find the best deal and I found it here. Great Price with Free Shipping. Whatever brand kiln you want; Kiln Frog has the best price. I love this kiln and the ease of operation. I slump/fuse cut wine bottles to make wind chimes. This kiln is large enough to make glass for 5 wind chimes at a time. I chose the Berry Color for my kiln and it looks Fantastic.
