Glass and clay firingmodes
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 . You can also fire several shelves of smaller glass pieces using the pottery mode .
Advanced element grooves

The elements in the 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 .
Heavily insulated
Extra insulation saves energy . The 4 thick walls,top and door are made of 3 firebrick backed by 1 of ceramic fiber block insulation . The floor is 4½thick firebrick . The extra insulation not only saves energy but also cools slowly . This gives the micro-crystalline structure and color of the glaze sufficient time for full development .
Hinged control panel
The ventilated switch box is generously louvered for air circulation for the long life of the electrical components . Yet dust is kept to a minimum . Hinged at the bottom,the switch box opens wide for easy maintenance . Open the box in seconds by merely removing two screws at the top . A folding support arm holds the box in the open position . There is plenty of working space around electrical components .
Convenient front loadng
Potters who struggle with top-loadng kilns will enjoy the Janus Dragon . The door swings open wide on a heavy¾ steel rod with sealed bearings . Two spring-loadd latches press the door tightlyclosed .
Lid safety switch
The kiln includes a lid safety switch that turns off the elements when the lid is opened . The controller remains powered and automatically resumes firingwhen you close the door .
Doorway Clearance

The Janus Dragon will fit through a 34 doorway if the handles and back element cover are temporarily removed .
