Ceramic tiles ensure naturalness, colourfulness and robustness
Europe’s first wellness hostel ...

The times at which youth hostels stood for spartan furnishings and facilities definitely seem to have gone. A typical example has been realized recently in the Swiss Saas-Fee: the currently first youth hostel with an own wellness area is making international headlines. Carefully selected ceramic tiles are architecturally convincing, which, on the one hand, take into account the alpine character of the environment, and, on the other hand, ensure impressive aesthetics thanks to project-specific special solutions.


How products are showcased

Pleasure in natural raw materials and a love of baking – core competencies which are inextricably linked with the baking trade. Even nowadays when the classic bakery has long become a modern company with many culinary offers. A key role is played by the shop design which puts this traditional craft in the right light.


Intermediate floor with ceramic covering
Sentinel Haus Institut confirms VOC safety

Ceramic tiles with HT coating applied in-plant of AGROB BUCHTAL and JASBA (brands of DEUTSCHE STEINZEUG CREMER & BREUER AG) are beyond doubt with regard to healthy living and indoor air quality. This is confirmed by a differentiated examination conducted by the renowned Sentinel Haus Institut (Freiburg). TÜV (Technical Inspection Authority) Rheinland LGA Products GmbH, Nuremberg, acted as analytical laboratory. The focus of the examination was on emitting volatile organic compounds (VOC = Volatile Organic Compounds) and formaldehyde.
