About

The SaunaMed range has been commended for its ease of construction and variety of models available.

 

  • Born out of the factory that was the first to manufacture IR therapy units on a large scale over 25 years ago.
  • The first trusted sauna brand to be using FSC certified wood.
  • The primary brand in the UK to be approved and used by medical professionals.

 

The health benefits of regular sauna use are the main reasons why people are installing home saunas in record numbers. Almost any size of home can accommodate our range of saunas.

 

Solid State Electronics


The SaunaMed manufacturing process uses components which are all solid state with no moving parts, making the SaunaMed system an extremely robust and reliable one.

 

Factory Testing


Each SaunaMed sauna is thoroughly tested at the factory to ensure that it is fully functional. It has been shown that the electrical components in a SaunaMed sauna have an extremely low failure rate meaning your sauna is always ready to perform when you want to relax and detoxify. For example, the DuraWave™ heaters have a failure rate of less than 0.01%. In fact, each SaunaMed sauna is manufactured to a standard to meet both residential and commercial demands.

 

Because of the precision and quality of the parts used in the manufacturing process, SaunaMed saunas are recognized for their durability.

 

World Class Safety Standards


In addition to quality and innovation, our commitment to safety is unparalleled in the industry. With strict quality control measures in place you can be assured all of our saunas are electrically certified to meet and surpass stringent safety standards and are regularly inspected by an independent authority.

 

Many of our certifications are issued by SGS Germany, which is regarded as the premier quality management centre in the world today.

 

Certifications include CE (EMC, LVD), ISO 9001:2000, ETL, ETS, C-TICK, ROHS, GS, and SAA to name a few...

 

All the material we use is non-allergenic, non-toxic and environmentally friendly. Our wood comes from renewable forests. Furthermore, SaunaMed units use half the electricity of standard units. Not only does this save energy, but money as well. We also go a step further and ensure that all of our products are manufactured to ROHS standards, which restricts the release of Hazardous Substances.

 

We are so confident in the quality of our items we offer a 5 year warranty on our wood and glass parts and 2 years on electric parts. If there are any faults with the sauna within this period, parts and simple replacement instructions will be sent out free of charge.


Environmentally Friendly


All the material we use is non-allergenic, non-toxic and environmentally friendly. Our wood comes from renewable forests. Furthermore, SaunaMed saunas use half the electricity of standard units. We also go a step further and ensure that all of our products are manufactured to ROHS standards, which restricts the release of Hazardous Substances.

 

 


SaunaMed is one of the only manufacturers of far infrared saunas with certifications from the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI).

 

“Being certified shows that you comply with the highest social and environmental standards on the market. As public concerns about the state of the world’s forests and timber resources increases.

 

What do these certifications mean?


At SaunaMed, our philosophy for healthy living extends beyond the human body. We believe that by keeping our environment healthy there are fewer toxins in the air and water resulting in fewer toxins for your body to absorb. We are here to help you stay healthy and, at the same time, ensure a healthy planet.

 

What is Chain-of-Custody?


Not only is your SaunaMed infrared sauna an environmentally friendly product, but our entire process is certified. The SFI have certified our manufacturing facilities Chain-of-Custody (COC). COC is the path taken by raw materials from a certified source through processing, manufacturing, distribution, and printing until it is a final product ready for sale to you. So your SaunaMed Infrared Sauna is as environmentally friendly as it can be from the original tree to your final sauna.

 

Chemicals


We manufacture to the ROHS directive and use no chemicals or toxins in our sauna cabins as this could result in toxic fumes being released during operation and these chemicals could easily be absorbed by your open pores.

 

Silent Operation


We have ensured that our saunas are silent in operation to aid in your relaxation.

 

Installation


As our items are packed flat, they are transported and moved around the home easily. All of our items are easily assembled and include clear simple instructions.

 

Installation should take about thirty minutes. We provide you with an easy to read ‘step by step’ manual. Our saunas arrive flat packed in 2 or 3 large boxes, depending on which model. This also makes it easier to take with you if you ever decide to move house. All wall sections are made to fit together precisely, this ensures that our infrared saunas are very rigid and have a solid construction.

 

Do I need an Electrician?


An electrician is not required as our saunas simply plug into any household power point, they are delivered to you in kit-form and all wiring and accessories are already in place.

 

Does the Sauna require any ventilation or plumbing?


The sauna cabin is self-venting and requires no plumbing. There is a sliding vent to control the exhaust of hot air and the unit stands off the floor on 4 cleverly designed supports so no further venting is required and your floor remains protected.

 

Is it difficult to assemble the sauna in a restricted area such as a loft or basement?

 

Our saunas are supplied flat packed for assembly on site. Providing you can get the panels through any loft door etc. there will be no difficulty to assemble the cabin. By using advanced Far Infrared technology an Aqualine sauna can be installed in any room (even on carpet) and only requires a standard 13 Amp plug socket. Unlike old style steam saunas there is no need for venting, special wiring or special flooring. Your spare room, conservatory, garage or any spare space can become a centre for relaxation and wellness.

 

Can the sauna be used outdoors?


Only if installed in a garden building such as a summer house or a shed.

 

Accessories Included


The ability to control the sauna from inside and out, timer functions, stereo sound, oxygen ioniser system, aromatherapy, air vents, lighting, drinks holder, magazine and towel racks are all extra features that you will really come to appreciate with use of a SaunaMed sauna.

 

Electrical Considerations


All SaunaMed Saunas run on standard 240 volt/13 amp domestic plugs. You will not need to change your electrical wiring to run our range of infrared saunas.

 

Many sauna companies fail to explain the differences in wattages, volts and amps 13 amps equals 3120 watts. Any sauna requiring more wattage than 3120 will require you to upgrade to a heavier duty circuit.


Certification


Electrical Testing Laboratories (ETL) was founded in 1896 by Thomas Edison, and is one of the oldest product safety testing laboratories in the world. Certification by ETL and ETL-C assures you that all signature models have been tested to meet the required safety and performance standards.

 

The RoHS Directive stands for "the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment".

 

GS - Recognised throughout Europe and particularly important in Germany, the independently authorised GS mark shows that a product complies with the minimum requirements of the German Equipment and Product Safety Act. The GS mark shows a product has passed safety tests, exceeds legal standards and is of a high quality.

 

The ISO9001 standard requires a continual improvement in the operating processes and quality management system. This standard is important as it guarantees a consistency in product and service that will achieve customer satisfaction.

 

Our manufacturing facility has implemented a quality management system in order to maintain the highest standards in product development and quality assurance.

 

Besides these approvals, all of our electrical wiring is encased in stainless steel fireproof conduit.

 

Why are Certifications Important?


SaunaMed proudly holds the industry`s top certifications. Any organization who issues a certification is responsible for what they have issued for a certain product. Accordingly, their standards are extremely high and they would never issue a certification for an imperfect product. That`s why other sauna manufacturers are eager to get certifications but rarely get one.

 

Our values and standards have made us with our revolutionary infrared technology the leaders in the market and research. In doing this we have set international standards and now have highly successful representatives in different continents.

 

SaunaMed has established an excellent reputation. Competent advice, consistent research and continued development as well as premium quality are just some of the building blocks for our success. Experts claim that SaunaMed infrared technology is among the most efficient and, above all, most effective the world over.

 

How often can I use the Infrared Sauna?


As with any form of exercise, it is important to build up a tolerance. Use a lower temperature (35°c) for about 15-20 minutes, initially 3 times a week. Once conditioned, many people enjoy daily sessions of up to 35 to 40 minutes.

 

What temperature is best?


We suggest beginning at 35°C and working up to the higher temperatures. It is often not necessary to reach maximum temperatures and most benefits are experienced at lower temperatures.

 

Should I drink water before or after a sauna session?


Yes you should do both, as well as drinking water during the sauna session. All our saunas include a handy drinks holder inside.

 

Is the sauna suitable for anybody?


Due to the more controlled temperature and safe heating apparatus, far infrared saunas are beneficial to a wider variety of people. A healthcare professional should be consulted if you have specific health conditions, including pregnancy.

 

Is sauna safe for use by the elderly?


The older we get the more toxic we become. Many anti-ageing practitioners are now incorporating far infrared sauna therapy into their programs. It is important to note that most patients over sixty are dehydrated to some degree and this should be addressed by consuming fluids as instucted. Begin at 30°C and gradually increase the temperature.

 

What about children?


The sauna can be used by all people due to its safe heating apparatus. If the sauna is used at all for children under ten, it should be used for a short duration at a low temperature (30-40°C) and ensure fluids are replaced through drinking plenty of water. Good results have been noted with autism and ADD/ADHD.

 

Is there any maintenance involved?


Not much at all, just give the glass door a wipe down, and change the light bulb when required. If a problem does occur we have qualified technicians available to speak with you, also a troubleshooting guide is included in the kit, if needed. The floor can be mopped out using warm water and disinfectant. The benches should be sponged down using warm soapy water. This must be used sparingly to avoid soaking the wood. If necessary, the heater can be switched on at a low temperature to assist with the drying out of the benches.
