Hygiene at its heart
It is not just stylistic preferences that can affect the relevance or suitability of a company’s products. Sometimes an event, such as the coronavirus pandemic, can change buyers’ priorities completely.
Covid-19 has increased the need for hygiene in all spa areas, but particularly in close-contact thermal zones. In this respect, Sommerhuber’s expertise in creating large-area surfaces sets it up as the perfect partner for evolving and newly developing thermal suites.
Again exemplifying that this is a company with its finger on the pulse of spa operators’ concerns, the Lounger One Plus has a velvety-soft, ceramic surface with just two transverse joints, meeting the highest hygiene requirements in private or public spaces.
“Large surface areas are becoming more popular than tiled structures as they minimise the number of joints, which can make rooms more difficult to clean and sanitise,” says Sommerhuber. “Our larger, smooth surfaces are much easier to clean and maintain.”
