EnviroGum natural timber cabinetry - consistent colour cast / sustainable resource / machines well / H3 durable

Our EnviroGum natural timber is a eucalyptus / gum species that is sustainably plantation grown in both Eastern Europe and South America; both sites use seeds sourced from Australia.

Sapphire have selected this particular timber for it’s properties which are quite close to cedar (softwood). EnviroGum does weigh around 30% more than cedar, but is also a lot tougher and more resistant to dinting and minor damage as it is closer to a hardwood in its composition.

This sustainably grown timber is precision machined to our cabinet profile specifications, here in Victoria.

A clear H3 durable treatment is then applied to the timber before being handcrafted into the spa cabinetry.

EnviroGum enables us to deliver an affordable timber choice for your spa that is stunning, stable and readily available.

Consistent colour cast

Producing a balanced colour cast across the entire surface of the spa cabinet, EnviroGum creates a visually stunning profile with timeless beauty. It allows to you seamlessly match your design from inside out. Creatively specify complimentary hardwoods for interior applications within your home to match the EnviroGum external spa profile to cohesively complete the build.


Sustainable resource

In today’s environmentally aware world, we’ve selected EnviroGum for our timber cabinetry as our way of doing the best we can for our planet. It is a 100% renewable resource with environmental attributes that make it a lower embodied energy/carbon factor than the alternatives.

Upon the completion of trials on this eucalypt timber resource, EnviroGum timber cabinetry has been recently introduced to our product range due to the challenge of increasing cedar prices and availability. As prices have continued to escalate at alarming rates, largely being driven by the reductions in harvesting areas of the timber in Canada, we addressed the need to provide our customers with an attractive alternative to our long-standing cedar cabinetry.

Most of the family range has been created with enlarged footwells to allow space for multiple users, including undercut footwells to accommodate even the tallest people.

Their powerful air and water jets ensure a blissful therapeutic experience for all users.
