Heat storage ceramics and the quality of revitalizing heat radiation
Our ceramic tiles have the decisive advantage of heat storage and due to their special mass they evenly distribute the warmth over a period of many hours.
The gentle thermal radiation heats the surface of walls as well as solid objects in a room, but not the air
The resulting effect of calming radiant heat leads to a uniform room temperature without overheating. The air maintains its freshness as well as purity and the result is a healthy and pleasant indoor climate.
Ceramic radiant heat
The healing effect of pleasant warmth
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.
Feel well and recharge your batteries
Returning home from a day full of work and relaxing at the tiled stove – the human body experiences the healing effect through cozy heat and thus feels more vital and energized. Just like the sun is a source of our well-being, the tiled stove brings coziness into our home.
The gentle thermal radiation of our ceramics is just like a balm for the soul. The tiled stove is a symbol of comfort and coziness; it bestows us with well-being and mental balance. It is the crackling of the fire and the cozy thermal radiation which brings warmth and life to our home.
I love you so much – I would without thought give you a tile from my stove.
Here, you find all of our products tiled stoves & tiled fireplaces.
The health benefits of the long-wave thermal heat 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
- Encourages 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
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.
