Our Geo baths and basins originate from the Japanese ofuro, traditionally used for a long soak that warms the body and relaxes tired muscles and nerves. Teak is warm to the touch and an excellent insulator, thus helping to keep the water hot.
This bathtub can be made as a double as well, measuring 31 1/2" Wide x 69" Long x 21 1/4" High overall. Both come fitted with a 1 1/2" pressflow drain. A 1 1/2" thick back rest is included (2 for the double). Removable seats are optionally available as are 2 - 4" x 4" feet that extend the width of the bathtub (call for pricing). Photo #3 shows this tub with optional whirlpool jets. See additional photos above and the attached PDF for specs.
Teak is perfect for the precision work of making baths and sinks because of its unique combination of great durability and stability. In wet environment where the timber must behave predictably, teak is the king.
Teak grows in the mixed deciduous forests of South Asia and is not a tropical rain forest tree. It is also found in plantations across the world. This collection of sinks and baths use teak from Myanmar that is harvested in an environmentally sustainable way.
Our teak sinks and baths are treated with Timbertect Plus, an epoxy resin sealant which sinks into the wood and fuses with it, forming an exceptionally tough layer that will not absorb stains. These sinks are easy to clean with standard non-abrasive bathroom and kitchen cleaners. Products containing bleach should be avoided as they may lighten the wood unevenly. Further information on care and maintenance is provided with the product.
