FAR Infrared Saunas
You may be wondering what is a FAR Infrared Sauna and what makes it different from a traditional Sauna.
Well while traditional saunas use hot rocks or heaters to increase the temperature inside the room, an infrared sauna uses multiple infrared heaters. Each heater uses Infrared Light beams to transfer energy and heat to other objects in the sauna.
The light beams penetrate the body and cause its internal temperature to increase. That is different to a traditional sauna which uses heated air to heat the skin first, then eventually heat the body’s internal tissue.
So because the Infrared heats the body’s internal tissues first, infrared saunas achieve a deep heat faster and at a lower temperature.
The Dynamic Saunas Venice is made from a highly durable and environmentally friendly Reforested Canadian Hemlock Wood. It uses a doubled paneled wall construction, using thicker, sturdier panels than other saunas in this price range.
Comfortably accommodating 2 people this sauna uses carbon emitters to heat up the sauna quickly and thoroughly and includes:
- Interior & exterior soft touch control panel
- MP3 Player with aux connection
- 6 Carbon emitters
