History Channel filmed an episode of its More Power series at Pulp Studio’s facility in Gardena, Calif. The original series features Tim Allen, Richard Karn and April Wilkerson and covers how tools have evolved over the years.

Pulp Studio’s chief operating officer Kirk Johnson gave the More Power team a behind-the-scenes-factory tour.

The show, which is in its first season, has highlighted everything from magnets, blades, lights and lasers, bearings, batteries and now heat. Its newest episode, titled “Heat,” takes a look at how Pulp Studio makes tempered glass in ultra-hot kilns.

To achieve this, Pulp Studio’s chief operating officer Kirk Johnson gave the More Power team a behind-the-scenes-factory tour. The tour included stops at an electrically powered custom kiln, which can be heated to more than 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit. The tour also involved demonstrations of the technical challenges and the craft involved in printing and bending glass for architectural projects.

“We had so much fun shooting for over six hours with Tim, Richard and the whole More Power History Channel crew,” says Johnson. “They took a genuine interest in learning how we bend and strengthen glass in our custom kilns and tempering furnace. Most people experience our products as they walk on a glass floor or lean against a glass polished railing without thinking about how that product was created. There are so many steps and hand craftsmanship to bend glass, but also to make a finished design that is easy to maintain, plus safe to use with heavy traffic over time.”

Allen and Karn also witnessed the effects of thermal stress on glass production and learned how Pulp Studio minimizes the risks of glass shattering when not cooled properly. Additionally, the duo was shown Pulp Studio’s innovative furnace that strengthens glass.

Johnson says that despite several scenes being left on the cutting room floor, the overall experience with the film crew was amazing.

“Those two comedians had me laughing the entire day,” says Johnson. “The episode – even though it felt short to us – is amazing for the industry. Now everyday consumers can experience what a glass factory is like and how much work and passion goes into our processes.”
