A NZ first for Nelson Spa Manufacturer

A NZ first for Nelson Spa Manufacturer

Sensation Spas, a Nelson based business, has designed a New Zealand unique reverse moulding for neck and shoulder hydrotherapy in spas.

Their two new spas launched this week, the Pelorus and the Milford, both incorporate this unique reverse moulding which ensures that you get full neck and shoulder support and has jets pointing down directing maximum hydrotherapy. During the highly specialised manufacturing process, the acrylic lining is heated to extreme temperatures to enable the material to be vacuumed over the spa mould.

The new reverse mould has removable sealed sections to allow the formed acrylic sheet to be released. This technically advanced process has not been undertaken in New Zealand before now. Another first for Sensation spas is their recently introduced hot tub which has all the traditional hot tub features but with modern spa pool technology.

It has a lock away ladder option which eliminates the need for fencing. Sensation spas have been made in Nelson since 2003, they now employ 12 staff and supply stores nationwide - predominantly through the 4 Seasons Home & Leisure group. There are 12 spas with 6 colour options for both recreational and hydrotherapy use in their line up.
