The unique Finnish material for fireplaces, exclusive to NunnaUuni
Research on the thermal properties of Mammutti soapstone, mined in Nunnanlahti in Juuka, began in the early 1990s. The studies provided proof that the properties of Mammutti soapstone are unique for fireplace use compared to other types of soapstone. Mammutti soapstone is exclusive to NunnaUuni.
The life cycle of NunnaUuni fireplaces is also considerably long, with our fireplaces lasting even for decades.
In fact, the very first industrially manufactured NunnaUuni fireplace remains in use in Simpele, Finland!
NunnaUuni fireplaces and baking ovens are manufactured right next to the material reserve in Nunnanlahti. This means the materials for fireplaces don’t require lengthy transport, which also reduces NunnaUuni’s environmental footprint.
