KLAFS UK
Uncompromising on quality, defining luxury, delivering wellbeing

Established in Germany in 1928, KLAFS is renowned for its premium range of specialist spa facilities, from saunas, steam rooms and ice lounges to caldariums, tepidariums and hammams. Every spa plan and build is crafted to each customer’s exacting requirements. In 2016, KLAFS partnered with luxury swimming pool specialist Guncast to bring its quality products to the UK, with three regional offices located across the country.

 

‘Over the past year, demand has skyrocketed for home wellness suites, no doubt impacted by lockdown, as well as a growing awareness of the importance of wellness in the home,’ Gilles Darmon, director of KLAFS UK, comments. ‘Fundamentally, our attitude towards health and wellness has shifted dramatically in recent years. While wellness was once reserved for the very best luxury hotels and boutique spas, many clients currently don’t feel able to visit and instead want their own personalised wellness experience in their home. We’re increasingly finding ourselves integrating our full wellness range into properties, so clients can have a tailored oasis of calm that specifically suits their needs, whenever they want it.’

One of the most innovative products in the KLAFS UK range is the sanarium with SaunaPUR that’s turned five saunas into one. The humidity and temperature is automatically adjusted to create different climate zones within the same cabin: a traditional sauna, a warm air bath, a tropical bath, an aroma bath and a soft steam bath. With SaunaPUR, bathers can enjoy an authentic, traditional Finnish relaxation with no electromagnetic radiation or noise from the heater to disturb the experience.

 

Additionally, the InfraPLUS infrared seat, designed to be used mainly inside a warm sauna, can have an intense effect on the body. On top of the many benefits provided by a traditional sauna – strengthened heart and blood circulation, detoxification, rebalance of blood pressure, improved immune system and sleep disorder reduction, to name just a few – the InfraPlus seat with its infrared technology provides targeted relief for muscle tension in the back, shoulders and neck.

 

Sustainability is naturally at the core of KLAFS UK’s offering and is a part of its everyday work. The company ensures that it uses only certified woods in its saunas that conform to ecological, social and economical standards. ‘We strive to use energy and raw materials responsibly and keep our carbon footprint to an absolute minimum,’ the company pledges, whilst constantly looking for ways to reduce it further.

For the most eco-minded clients, the KLAFS Green Sauna package can be added to most KLAFS UK saunas, which lowers electrical use by over 40 per cent with each use while producing the same amount of heat.

Guncast, established in the 1970s, is a family-run business and has built an unrivalled reputation for expertly designing and installing the most luxurious swimming pools. The partnership with KLAFS gives customers access to a one-stop-shop when it comes to at-home wellness. The in-house team manages all aspects, from initial design through to complete installation.
