13 deep for slumping glass

The sidewall elements,mounted in two horizontal rows of grooves,improve heat distribution near the edges of shelves . This is especially desirable for large slumping projects .
Lift the lid effortlessly
Dual spring-assisted lid springs 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 . The spring counter-balance adjusts the hinge to compensate for expansion during firing
Pinless element grooves
The Ovation-1213 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 .
