The “Greenest” Sauna You Can Buy

Sauna companies make many false claims – look for third-party evidence that confirms what they say.

 

Electronics / Heaters

 

Restriction of Hazardous Substances certification

 

 

Materials

Our electronics are third-party certified to meet Europe’s RoHS requirement (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) by the European testing organization TUV SUD, who also ensures our sauna meets Europe’s strict safety requirements.

 

The RoHS requirement restricts the use of lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, and brominated fire retardants. Lead and fire retardants are very common in electronics. Lead can cause a range of health problems including behavioral problems, learning disabilities, and seizures. Brominated fire retardants persist in the environment, accumulate in living organisms and cause liver toxicity, thyroid toxicity, and neurodevelopmental toxicity.

 

 

Eco-conscious Glue

Our wood glue is non-toxic, non-outgassing, water-based, and solvent free.

 

It's actually not a big deal to find and use simple, extremely safe, wood glue, though we cannot say for sure that all companies do. Wood glue is not the same as other glues so it’s a mystery to us why some sauna companies say you should be terrified of it. We suspect it’s because their small operations couldn’t afford the large presses necessary to use glue.
