During busy seasons when orders are
backlogged, you will be grateful you own a dependable Paragon kiln such
as the digital TnF-24. Studio owners call these kilns “real work
Paragon studio kilns have withstood years of
abuse in school environments. High school ceramics teachers fire these
kilns unmercifully, without remorse. Yet the kilns keep going. People
swear by them.
Hinged at the bottom, the switch box on 8, 10
& 12 sided digital Paragon kilns opens forward for easy
maintenance. A folding support arm holds the box in the open position.
The Sentry is mounted at the top of the switch box within easy reach.
Operate it from a comfortable position.
The TnF-24 features sectional construction. Separate the kiln bottom
and sections to repair bricks, change elements, or to move the kiln
down narrow stairwells or through the narrowest doorways. Twist-lock
spring latches hold the assembled collars securely.
The top row of brick in the TnF-24 is 2” high and without element
grooves. It is less susceptible to damage during loading than a grooved
The 10-sided digital TnF-24 comes in standard
2 ½” thick sidewalls and lid. The TnF-24 bottom is 3” thick. For
porcelain or stoneware, order the TnF-24-3, rated to 2350°F. Since the
TnF-24 studio kiln uses 2 ½” wall brick, we recommend it for low-fire
ware, not for porcelain and stoneware.
The massive lid is easy to lift with
Paragon's patented “LiteLid,” which does away with cumbersome pulleys
and cords and reduces lid weight to only several pounds of pressure.
Most people can lift the lid with one hand. Unlike pulleys and weights,
the LiteLid is self-contained on the kiln. No need to drill holes in
the ceiling for pulleys. The LiteLid sharply reduces wear between the
lid and top rim of firebrick. The truss and floating lid allow
expansion of the lid. Ask competitors if their lid spring includes a
truss and floating lid.
The 24” wide stand for 10 & 12-sided kilns supports the brick
bottom with framing that is 4 ½” wide across the top of each side. The
stand is rock-steady, with 16-gauge frame and heavy 12-gauge legs.
If you move your TnF-24 kiln out of the way when not in use, order an optional deluxe kiln stand with steel casters.
Something to consider if you already own a
12-sided kiln: Why purchase a 10-sided kiln such as the TnF-24 when you
produce enough ware to fill a 12-sided kiln? It is because some ware
fires more efficiently in a 10-sided kiln. Example: 10- and 12-sided
kilns both fire four 10” wide bowls per shelf. When you own both sizes
of kilns, you can choose the most efficient kiln for each size of ware.
The 10-sided kiln is a good choice for those whose production depends
on short firing cycles. Since 10-sided kilns are smaller than 12-sided,
they can heat and cool faster. The 10-sided shelves are lighter than
the 12-sided, and easier to lift.

The Optional Furniture Kit (not included)
The furniture kit consists of carefully
selected fireclay shelves and posts for this particular model. When
estimating the price of the kiln, include the cost of furniture. The
furniture allows you to stack multiple layers of ware. Without it, you
could fire only the ware that would fit on the kiln bottom.
