How Safe is Your Sauna or Steam Bath? – CSA Safety Certification Approval.
Safety is Saunacore’s number one priority when manufacturing its exclusive Canadian Made far infrared saunas, sauna heaters, steam bath generators and all its other components and equipment. ALL Saunacore products are CSA certified (excluding Sunset infrared sauna which is imported from China – ETL certified) to the most rigures testing methods, and to the most up to date safety standards on the market. CSA certification is concrete proof and assurance that your infrared sauna or any Saunacore products are tested to stringent safety standards. All precautions are documented, and certified and tested in CANADA. As a manufacture we have the power to make immediate and all necessary changes, alterations or corrections immediately to implement a safe product. Saunacore products are tested to CSA, UL and CE safety standards.
Saunacore chooses CSA (Canadian Standards Association) to test and certify all Saunacore products. This is why.

CSA marks are a sign of confidence for millions of people worldwide, every day. Here’s why:
- CSA marks mean a product has been tested and meets applicable standards for safety and/or performance, including the applicable standards written or administered by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Underwriters Laboratories (UL), Canadian Standards Association (CSA), NSF International (NSF), and others.
- CSA International is a North American leader in product testing and certification, with a respected history dating back to 1919.
- CSA works closely with the International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI), the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI), Health Canada, provincial regulators, and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to promote standards for consumer safety in North America and around the world.
- CSA testing is accepted by key conformity assessment organizations in the U.S. including IAPMO and ASSE
- CSA field representatives conduct more than 50,000 factory visits each year, worldwide, to ensure that CSA-certified products continue to meet the applicable standards.
Your Assurance of Recognition
Accreditation demonstrates that CSA is fully qualified to test and certify your products, and that the results are widely recognized in our chosen markets.
