True Burmese teak is one of the outstanding timbers of the world . It has been used in high quality yacht construction and furniture building for many years because of its beauty, durability, stability, strength, appearance and resistance to damage from water and numerous chemicals and acids. Along with these characteristics, it contains more natural oils than other woods, which gives it the ability to rejuvenate to its original color and beauty from a weathered condition. All these characteristics make it a perfect choice for use in a hot tub.
The hardness of true teak makes it much more difficult to mill and shape, but when finished the wood takes on a beautiful luster. Because of these valuable properties and its superior rot resistance and weathering ability, it is the choice of those who want the very best. Teak has proven to be the best choice of wood for hot tubs.
Perfectly clear (no knots), the finished thickness of our teak hot tubs is 1-1/4″. Each hot tub is individually crafted from the finest burmese teak available. The tubs come unassembled and are shipped, and installed in any location by following our comprehensive, yet simple, step by step assembly guide.
The teak hot tubs are constructed of a tongue and groove method and are frequently conical in shape. The conical design allows for what many feel is a more comfortable sitting position and contains less water then the standard straight sided tubs. Straight sided teak tubs are also available.
Like all our hot tubs, the teak tubs are held together by 1\2″ steel bands, roll threaded at each end, and come with a cast iron coupler, two stainless steel nuts and most importantly a polyethylene sheathing which protects the band from rusting. The conical shaped hot tubs are a bit unique in that the staves (side boards) are notched to prevent the bands from sliding downwards.
The bench, made from the same thickness of wood as the rest of the hot tub, has 8 sections and is supported by 2 x 4’s which are attached to the sides of the tub. We call the bench a ‘full circle’ and no part of it touches the floor, thereby allowing your feet complete freedom underneath. Less than a full circle may be installed to allow for a standing area, and the bench can be installed at split levels to allow for people of different heights. All benches come complete with stainless steel screws for fastening to the tub.
Our hot tubs are available individually, with or without benches, or as complete systems. The complete systems contain virtually everything necessary to put you into bubbling hot water (except for the water). We offer a wide variety of sizes (and prices) and if desired, are more than happy to make custom sizes.
