The art of feeling
To feel the warmth, to experience relaxation, to be able to let yourself go, leave your daily routine behind and to simply feel well – our basic concept is to associate those unique ideas with the advantages of ceramic radiant heat.
Ceramic tiles are vastly superior to other ceramic materials in the wellness sector. They store heat and slowly give it off to the body in form of a mild ceramic radiant heat. Acting on the vegetative nervous system, this heat promotes relaxation and vitality. Combined with large surfaces with only few joints our SPA ceramics tiles comply with the highest standards of hygiene and are visually convincing in a modern and straight or ergonomic design. A unique concept.
Ceramic radiant heat Healing effect of pleasant heat
The long-wave infrared radiation has a soothing effect on the vegetative nervous system because its free nerve endings are located only 0.1mm below the skin surface. Body and mind are soothed and relaxed as a result of this gentle radiant heat..
The health-enhancing healing warmth invigorates body and mind.
Vitality and energy through warmth
Via the skin’s body contact surfaces, the soothing and consistent radiant heat has a regenerating effect on the well-being of the entire organism.
The individual secret to feel well
Individuality and style are expressed in the rooms that you design only for yourself. The wellness and relaxation area show in particular which space you give to yourself in order to recharge your vital energy.
The use of our heat storage ceramics for the SPA area is versatile. High quality SPA solutions for private and public areas with ergonomically shaped heated loungers and benches, ceramic foot basins as well as design radiators for an exclusive relaxation.
You should allow yourself some relaxation. We will arise more powerful and vigorously after a period of rest.
The health benefits of the long-wave thermal radiation
Among physicians and biologists there has long been the consensus: tiled stoves with heat storage ceramics ideally promote a healthy indoor climate, coziness and well-being. Of all different heating methods developed so far it is the ceramic radiant heat of the tiled stoves which is most similar to the positive effects of the rays of the sun.
Every body radiates energy in form of electromagnetic radiation. If rays meet surfaces of bodies and objects the contained energy is released in form of heat. The longer those waves are, the more gentle and comfortable we experience the warmth. The long-wave infrared radiation of the heat storage ceramics amount to approx. 9.000 nm; this is equivalent to the infrared C range in the electromagnetic spectrum. Radiant heat in precisely this long-wave C-range is experienced by us humans as particularly comfortable and soothing.

The reason why this warmth has a relaxing effect may be explained with the texture of our skin. The epidermis, where the free nerve endings of the vegetative nervous system are located, only absorbs C wavelengths. The long-wave infrared-C radiation of the ceramic radiation quality has a gentle and comfortable effect on the vegetative nervous system because its free nerve endings are already 0.1mm below the skin surface. It is this gentle ceramic radiant heat which enhances the relaxation and revitalization of body and mind.

One of the tasks of the vegetative nervous system is the regulation of warmth through blood circulation. Primarily reacting in our body are the water molecules. Those activated molecules invigorate the cells and expand the blood vessels – and we relax. Heat storage ceramics relax our body and mind through the expansion of the blood vessels. Numerous positive effects for our health are thus promoted.
- Relieves the respiratory passages
- Strengthens the immune system
- Eases muscle tensions
- Enhances the self-healing process of the skin
- FEncourages the blood circulation and reduces high blood pressure
- Reduces the level of acidity and purges the body
- Stimulates the cells’ ability to react – the skin appears fresher and more elastic
Heat storage ceramics as a source of infrared radiation
The major difference in the radiation quality of an infrared sauna made of wood and rooms with heat storage ceramics is in the nature of the used materials. Heat storage ceramics per se is the source of the infrared radiation. Infrared saunas on the contrary require an extra infrared radiator whose waves are primarily in the short-wave B-range. Health problems may be counteracted reactively by means of an intensive spot irradiation. But heat storage ceramics are proactive. The rather long-wave infrared C-radiation is more gentle and promotes the preservation of the natural vitality due to its mild, gentle surface radiation.
Ceramic tiles vs. other tiles (flags)
Ceramic tiles should not be confused with tiles for other purposes. Contrary to the ceramic stove tile other tiles are 2-dimensional and dense. That means they do not store any heat. The stove ceramics tile on the other hand is 3-dimensional and possesses a special ceramic mass which evenly controls the discharge of heat. It therefore gives off the heat to the room in form of a gentle long-wave thermal radiation. Any other type of tile performs other important tasks but they do not have the advantages of thermal heat radiation that ceramic tiles possess. Thus, the ceramic stove tile is the ideal material for a gentle and healthy warmth which we humans perceive as so cozy and comfortable.
