|Sommerhuber’s heated loungers
Owned by the Sommerhuber family, Sommerhuber Ceramic Manufactory combines the advantages of traditional tile stoves with modern living concepts. Following thorough research and intensive technological developments, the company established large area ceramics with a clear style for spas in 2004.
Sommerhuber specialises in the production of heat storage ceramics for private and public spas. Sommerhuber’s product range includes seats and benches for wet and dry rooms, heated loungers, hamam tables, ceramic foot basins, healing clay spas and wall ceramics.
Unique selling points
Sommerhuber’s heat storage ceramic stands out from other ceramic materials because it transmits health-promoting, long-wave infrared ceramic radiant heat to the body.
Ceramic radiant heat acts in a comforting way on the vegetative nervous system, promotes blood circulation, relieves muscular tensions and thus positively influences relaxation and vitality. Large area ceramics provide maximum hygiene as there are only a few joints, and the ergonomic surface perfectly follows the contours of the human body. The velvety-soft surface is pleasant to touch and thereby further promotes relaxation. Sommerhuber’s home spa/suite spa concept is unique within the spa market, offering a multifunctional room for use as a steamroom or tepidarium, for aromatherapy sessions or simply as a shower room. Each project is customised to the individual needs of each customer and the area they have available, starting out with a minimum 3m2 space.
Just launched, the Healing Clay Spa combines Sommerhuber’s unique heated, infra-red ceramics with therapeutic mud treatments to rejuvenate the entire body.
