We recommend larch as the standard type of wood. Cedar, mahogany, cherry tree, walnut, teak and wengé can also be supplied on request at additional cost.
Treatment / Impregnation
In order to guarantee the high quality of the cut timber and to reduce the humidity to an absolute minimum of 8%, the treatment of the timber is carried out in several stages:
- 2 years storage in the open air
- 14 days in a drying chamber at 45 °C
- 12 hours gluing of the wooden posts under pressure by using biologically decomposable, boil-proof resin glue
After the wood has been hand worked by craftsmen and finely sanded, it is then further treated:
By applying a wax impregnation with a wood protector, which is colourless, free of organic biocides, and provides preventive protection against blue fungus stain and rotting. By repeatedly applying an even coat of the colourless plant-based hard-wax oil.
Advantages of wood
Germs and bacteria are killed through the antiseptic effect of the wood. There are no marks from lime or water drops. The wet wooden surface is not slippery, but remains friendly to the skin. Thanks to low heat conduction of the wood, the radiating warmth of the bath water is retained for a longer period. As only end-grain wood is used, there is no danger of splinters.
