Grading System Altaussee

Experience breathing – in the grading system Altaussee

The round grading system: In 1956, an open-air grading system was built near the Seeklause, into which brine is directly applied by a line from the Altausseer Salzberg. This brine drips over the fir tree of the Gradieranstalt and by the atomization of the dripping brine essential oils are released, which provides immediate relief for bronchial and asthmatic diseases. The structure itself consists of a wooden framework, which is once a year decorated with fir trees. The loading of the grading system is pure manual work.
The annual cleaning of the plant, the chopping of the fir tree trunk in the forest, as well as the stocking require a workload of approx. 2 weeks!
These activities are carried out mainly by voluntary work from the population!

The quadrangular grading system: This structure consists of stainless steel elements, over which the brine flows. Wind and sun contribute to the evaporation of the water present in the brine. Due to the drowning brine the air in the grading plant is enriched with salt, the water droplets bind particles in the air.

Effect: A stay in the grading system has a positive effect similar to sea air, for example with pollen allergic persons and asthmatics and others. Autem paths are moistened and the walls of the respiratory organs are positively influenced. The fine salt crystals have a secretion-releasing effect, clean the airways intensively of bacteria and make the mucous membranes decay. Regular application is very beneficial. This can not only bring about relief and health benefits, but can also have a preventive effect.
