A Natural Remedy For Hay Fever Sufferers Whilst the majority of people can enjoy the warmer days of spring to their fullest, for pollen allergy sufferers, it’s a time of year which can often be a nightmare. KLAFS have highlighted that there is a completely natural way to relieve the discomfort though – through the regular use of a sauna. After all, using a sauna improves the blood supply to the mucous membranes and regular use is also a good workout for the immune system. The targeted, repeated application of a strong heat and cold stimulus trains the ability of all blood vessels in the skin and mucous membranes to contract and reopen quickly. The soothing sauna warmth also alleviates the symptoms of allergic asthma, because it relieves the cramped muscles in the deep branches of the bronchial tubes. However, especially for pollen allergy sufferers, sauna visits should not only take place during the cold season. The positive effects of regular sauna sessions are particularly easy to bring into a home with the Zoom Sauna S1 from KLAFS. In addition, the S1

filter – similar to the pollen filter in the car – cleans the outside air from annoying pollen. Sufferers from pollen allergy can now also take a deep breath in the sauna. As one of the leading manufacturers in the sauna market, the company also offers numerous other attractive design possibilities for every room situation and every requirement.

Catalina Brand To Benefit As LPI Purchases Premium Leisure

Aqua Design & Leisure, whose range includes the Catalina Spas brand in the UK, have announced that LPI (the parent company of Catalina in the USA), has recently acquired Florida based Premium Leisure spas and swim spas. The plan is to keep the 90,000 sq ft production facility in place in Florida and relocate the Catalina swim spa production division there. Premium Leisure spa production will be relocated to an existing 320,000 sq ft Tennessee facility. This move will increase efficiency and will see an almost immediate opportunity to expand production for both spa and swim spa ranges. The move will make the newly equipped

Florida plant the world’s largest dedicated swim spas manufacturing facility. The skilled Catalina production teams have agreed to relocate to Florida to help with the seamless transition and to ensure that the quality – which Catalina swim spas are famous for – is retained. This acquisition will almost immediately solve the capacity limitations which LPI has experienced since acquiring Catalina Spas in late 2016. Stephen Crabb, Managing Director of Aqua Design & Leisure says 2017 saw a record number of orders for Catalina swim spas that unfortunately resulted in longer than planned production times. This move will allow LPI to produce more units to meet the growing demand for Catalina swim spas and spas with the advantage of further room to expand. Aqua Design & Leisure are currently building their UK stock levels for the year ready for immediate delivery and with the new facility, any non-stocked model orders should see a production time of nearer to six weeks.
