ASENSO IS MUCH MORE THAN JUST A SAUNA
The manufacturer of Asenso saunas is AS PRODUCT, a leader on the market of professional design and construction of swimming pools, as well as SPA & Wellness zones.
It is time for a revolution!
It all started with an offer for an individual client. AS PRODUKT wanted to create a collection of saunas that would be an inspiration when designing a home SPA or a bathing room. Projects were carried out in terms of both sauna design and construction. The company was well aware that hard evidence was needed in order to change the habits that had remained unchanged over the years. The team appointed to implement the ASENSO project suggested conducting research on the replacement of mineral wool as the insultation material with expanded cork. The results exceeded their expectations. In order to implement the changes, both in terms of technical aspects, as well as in the way of thinking about saunas, sufficient funds had to be secured first. Thanks to the undertaken research, the company was offered a chance to participate in the Intelligent Development Operational Program: “Research for the market”. A project entitled “Implementation of sauna construction with thermal insulation made of expanded cork” was launched. As it met with positive reception, the project of the sauna with the new insulation solution was submitted by AS PRODUKT to the Patent Office. Each sauna is a work of art, created with attention to the smallest detail. A lot of attention is paid to the heart of the sauna – its heater. The ASENSO collection includes indoor and outdoor saunas. You can choose from over 200 different models with different arrangement, such as recess, corner and free-standing saunas of various dimensions, created as a result of cooperation of designers: Katarzyna Stefaniak, Marek Walczak and Paweł Klamann.

The materials used for the construction of our saunas are 100% ecological. The ASENSO project inspired the brand owners to conduct a research on effective and ecological methods of thermal insulation for saunas, which compared two types of materials – mineral wool and cork. The results clearly showed that expanded cork used in ASENSO saunas is a product that is not only 100% ecological, but also perfect as insulating material. Due to its cellular structure, it is characterised by high vapour permeability without absorbing moisture. Unlike other materials, it does not create a greenhouse effect inside and high air humidity does not affect its technical parameters. It has high dimensional stability and unlimited durability. Cork is also a self-extinguishing in case of fire, it does not emit toxins and is resistant to bacteria, fungi, insects and rodents. Based on the test report, AS Produkt submitted the project of the sauna with adhesive-free thermal insulation made of expanded cork to the Polish Patent Office, and the application was approved. Expanded cork has the potential to revolutionise the sauna construction industry. It offers numerous advantages, meets environmental expectations and can successfully replace mineral wool. In order to highlight the eco-friendly aspect of ASENSO, everyone who buys our sauna receives a tree as a gift, which is planted in Madagascar by the Treedom organisation. As the new owner of the tree, the Customer can name it and watch it grow online.
In the contemporary world, where people are busy rushing around, often breathing in the suffocating smog that shrouds the cities, we turn to look for a place to have a break from all of it. ASENSO saunas offer a solution. You can enjoy tranquillity and feel closer to nature. You can experience time slowing down. For our ORGANIC collection, we selected natural elements offered by nature that significantly enhance the experience of a hot bath. Instead of the conventional panelling, we opted for sauna plywood with a textured surface to emphasise the feel of real wood. Decorative elements are made of alpine hay and wild flowers, adding an extraordinary scent and look to the design. We locked in nature itself in our saunas, free from allergens and polluting adhesives. The materials used for ornaments, mainly hay and flowers, are harvested from alpine meadows by hand once a year, in mid-August. The meadows are located at an altitude of 1700 m above sea level, close to the Wildspitze, the highest mountain in Tyrol, and can only be reached on foot. Down in the valley, the harvested hay is cleaned and cut and then pressed according to strict quality guidelines.
The ASENSO brand was developed in harmony with nature and the Sauna Spirit, which “speaks” when water is poured on the stones and brings good luck both to the house and the bathers.
Lovers of sauna cannot imagine even a week without it. You can either love it or don’t use it at all, without any in-betweens. Beneficial effects of sauna on health have been known for a long time. Alternating heating and cooling of the body strengthens the body and boosts the immune system. In addition, it offers an almost mystical experience and a mental escape to a different world away from trouble. The “Sauna Spirit” hugs you with the smell of wood and dim light, allowing to achieve full harmony. Smartphones, radios and TV that bombard us with information are banned from this sacred space. Sauna helps to calm down, relax, as well as improves sleep quality and mood, whenever you need it. If you already have your personal sauna, make sure to regularly take advantage of its benefits. If not, do not hesitate to contact us.
We woudl like to warmly invite you on a journey through all of our ASENSO collections.
