HOW COLONIAL HOT TUBS ARE MADE
Colonial Cedar Hot Tubs are handcrafted using the traditional method of Coopering.
The Coopering process is a highly specialised skill, a true art form that involves handcrafting staves (vertical wooden slats) together to form a watertight seal.
Coopers are well known for producing Oak barrels for the aging of wine. Instead of Oak, Colonial Hot Tubs use Canadian Heart Cedar with natural anti-mould and anti-decay properties giving the Tub a longer life.
The result is an excellent seal and a very distinctive look with stylish galvanised, gold plated or black powder coated bands used to hold the hot tub together. This method completely eliminates the need for glue or nails in production.
The Tub interiors are detailed and sanded by hand to a smooth finish and the Tub exterior is coated with a custom tinted CD50 stain to protect the wood and bring out the grain details.
Depending on the tub size, 2 or 3 tanalised bearers are fixed underneath to support the weight of the Tub. Colonial Hot Tubs can be installed to most situations but if you have an enquiry please get in touch.
