  1. Does the factory follow safety and high-quality manufacturing standards? Safety is our number one priority, and we would not be who we are today without that core value.
  2. What is the environment the employees are working under? Unhappy and unsafe working conditions make it impossible to construct quality saunas. Poor working conditions and safety accidents contribute to manufacturing slowdowns. Our facility improvements prevent accidents, create a healthy working environment, and improves the overall quality of our saunas.
  3. Wood quality is important to us because we want to make the best saunas possible. We only purchase grade “A” quality wood from Canada for its wood grain properties, it is also free of wood bur holes. We inspect all raw material arriving from Canada from the grade, the evenness, and the age of the wood. Here is a picture of how we store our wood.
  4. As you can see competitors not only purchase lower grade woods but they take less care in inspecting and storing the wood that will be used for sauna construction. We’ve seen facilities storing wood outdoors in toxic rain conditions and then using these inferior materials to build saunas.
  5. Look at the air quality and the dust in our competitor manufacturing facilities. Mishandling of wood and storing wood outdoors in toxic rain conditions and then using it to construct sauna. The toxic wood and dust will adhere to the wood and glues that can be inhaled by the end user.
  6. After inspecting the raw wood we receive from Canada, kiln dry the wood for 4 days to burn away resins and oils that can outgas during a sauna session. The kiln drying process makes the wood hypoallergenic but also strengthens the wood to prevent bending, bowing, warping, splintering, and breakage.
  7. A critical part of constructing an infrared sauna is starting with a solid foundation. Many of competitors will use rotted, broken, glued and stapled wood to create the frame of your sauna. Compounding this structural support problem is that either Chinese Hemlock or European Spruce is commonly used in place of a heartier solid hemlock or cedar wood.
  8. The pictures below are of competitor factories.  You’d be surprised at what leading competitors are building their sauna frames with broken, glued wood and then selling them to you at a premium. Broken pieces for inner frame . Poor Quality non-hemlock wood used in inner frame broken pieces frame . Competitor Sauna Framing- note the broken and stapled support panels
  9. Here are images of factory and how ensure each wall is framed with solid support boards using either solid Canadian Hemlock or Canadian Red Cedar.  Saunas uses solid wood in either Canadian Hemlock or Canadian Red Cedar to construct the frame of your sauna for long-lasting durability and support.
  10. Avoid Companies that use excessive glue used during construction. Another consideration in the structural integrity of the sauna is the thickness of the wood planks used to construct the sauna. All our saunas are constructed with 7mm thick planks, this helps with strength, durability, and heat retention. Does the factory follow safety and high-quality manufacturing standards?

Portable infrared saunas are a short-term investment for people who frequently travel and have already made infrared sauna part of their health regimen. These saunas are extremely portable and are often offered for $150 to $800 depending on the quality. You cannot purchase replacement heaters or components for these saunas and rarely do they have a warranty in excess of a year. They all use an older far infrared carbon technology that emits the entire bandwidth of far infrared light between 5 and 15 microns in equal parts but your body reflects all but 9.4 microns. Many of these sauna heaters lack the opposing EMF heater layer and lack the EMF shielding that contributes to their high EMF fields. Although you can experience some benefits from these saunas it is important to consider the materials they are made from and the toxins these saunas can outgas. Plastics, foam, polyester can all outgas when heat is applied. Many of these types of saunas do produce high EMF levels that are over 100mG in some areas. Due to the close proximity of the heaters and electronic components to your body, you may consider purchasing a sauna with lower EMF readings. Most of these units come with a small portable chair to sit with your head and hands out of the sauna. We lose significant heat from the top of our head so your body is able to cool itself using the air temperature around it limiting the promotion of sweat production, the whole point of using a sauna.
