The massive, 12-sided Paragon digital
TnF-28-3 kiln is a profit center of the busy ceramic studio. It eats up
stacks of low-fire ware. At a cost per cubic foot, the TnF-28-3 is one
of the most economically priced standard kilns we make.
The TnF-28-3 now 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
The top row of brick in the TnF-28-3 is 2”
high and without element grooves. It is less susceptible to damage
during loading than a grooved brick.
We have upgraded the TnF-28-3 kiln to 48 amps. With beefier elements,
it fires to temperature with less strain. It is rated to 2150°F, ideal
for low-fire ware.
During busy seasons when orders are
backlogged, you will be grateful you own a dependable Paragon kiln.
Studio owners call these kilns “real work horses.”
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 TnF 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
The TnF-28-3 uses deluxe 3” thick firebrick
throughout: in the sidewalls, the reversible brick bottom, and the 3”
thick lid. 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 the TnF-28-3 kiln
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

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
