Background Owned by the Sommerhuber family, Sommerhuber Ceramic Manufactory combines the advantages of traditional ceramic tile manufacturing with modern living. Following research and intensive technological developments, the company has been establishing a range of ceramics for spas since 2006.

Main services Sommerhuber specialises in the manufacturing of heat-storing ceramics for spas. The product range includes seats and benches for wet and dry rooms, heated loungers, hammam tables, ceramic foot basins, healing clay spas and wall ceramics.

USPs Sommerhuber’s heat-storing ceramics transmit health-promoting, long-wave infrared ceramic warmth to the body. Ceramic warmth acts in a comforting way on the vegetative nervous system, promotes blood circulation, relieves muscular tension and thus positively influences relaxation and vitality. Large area ceramics ensure maximum hygiene, as there are only a few joints, and the surface follows the contours of the body. The velvety-soft surface is pleasant to touch and thereby further promotes relaxation.

The Lounger One Plus takes relaxation to another level

An infinitely variable temperature controller allows for a recommended surface temperature of 34°C. The velvety-soft, ceramic surface only has two transverse joints to allow for easy cleaning. This heated lounger is maintenance-free and can be easily cleaned using a soft cloth. Optional features allow the heated lounger to be ideally matched to its environment. The corpus body and the headrest can be colorcoordinated with the glaze and the electrically heated ceramic surface is available in 15 different glazes. A USB port allows the charging of work and reading devices.
