Important 3rd Party Certifications

Canadian Standards Association High Tech Health Thermal Life Far Infrared Saunas have been safety tested by the Canadian Standards Association to meet or exceed both Canadian and U.S. standards for safety. While US law does not require consumer-use products to be safety tested, OSHA requires products sold for use in businesses to be third-party safety tested by a company on their list of Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories, of which CSA is one. It is important to note that the High Tech Health sauna as a whole has been tested and certified -- most manufacturers of saunas have not had this done and instead have at best one or more components that have been safety tested.
Intertek ETL Listed - Canada, U.S. High Tech Health Transcend Far Infrared Saunas have been safety tested by Intertek to meet or exceed both Canadian and U.S. standards for safety. While US law does not require consumer-use products to be safety tested, OSHA requires products sold for use in businesses to be third-party safety tested by a company on their list of Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories, of which Intertek is one. It is important to note that the High Tech Health sauna as a whole has been tested and certified -- most manufacturers of saunas have not had this done and instead have at best one or more components that have been safety tested.
Underwriters Laboratories The High Tech Health Ionizer Plus has been safety tested and listed by Underwriters Laboratories to meet or exceed both Canadian and U.S. standards for safety. UL is another company on OSHA’s list of Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories approved for certifying the safety of products used in U.S. businesses.
TÜV High Tech Health Thermal Life Far Infrared Saunas and The Ionizer Plus have been safety tested by TÜV to meet or exceed European safety standards. This is a requirement for sale of products in the European Union, which has a reputation for stricter consumer product requirements than the United States.
TÜV High Tech Health Transcend Far Infrared Saunas have been safety tested by TÜV Rheinland to meet or exceed European safety standards. This is a requirement for sale of products in the European Union, which has a reputation for stricter consumer product requirements than the United States.
Restriction on Hazardous Substances Directive The Restriction on Hazardous Substances Directive is a European Union requirement (unfortunately not a U.S. requirement and still fairly uncommon here) that restricts the use of six hazardous substances in the manufacture of electronic and electrical equipment, and is sometimes called the “lead-free directive” (all electronics historically used lead for attaching electronics to circuit boards and is still common in products not destined for the European market). The RoHS directive restricts the use of lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, and two flame retardants: polybrominated diphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE). The High Tech Health Far Infrared Saunas have been third-party tested by TÜV or Intertek to meet or exceed the requirements of this standard.
FCC Part 15
FCC Part 15 is a U.S. regulation covering the intentional, unintentional, or incidental electromagnetic radiation emitted from electronic equipment. Electronic equipment, particularly anything with digital controls or parts (virtually everything electronic these days), has the potential to broadcast energy that is disruptive to communication equipment or affects the function of other electronic equipment (this is why the airlines request that you turn off anything electronic during take-off and landing). Adherence to this standard is through self-verification and testing, often through a third-party, though that is not required. High Tech Health Far Infrared Saunas and The Ionizer Plus adhere to this regulation.
Conformité Européenne
This mark must be attached to products for sale in the European Union. It is a self-declaration that the product in question meets the requirements of the European Union, which also includes requirements similar to FCC. High Tech Health Far Infrared Saunas and The Ionizer Plus have been tested, meet these requirements, and bear this mark.
 
 
 

Our Most Advanced Sauna

High Tech Health's Transcend line of saunas include everything that makes our Thermal Life line of saunas famous, and more. From our use of only premium materials, to our air-circulation design and state-of-the-art heaters, all High Tech Health saunas include everything necessary for the most advanced sauna detoxification possible. That is why High Tech Health saunas are recommended by more MDs and other health practitioners than any other sauna.

 

 


Poplar wood

 

100% Poplar Wood

 

Poplar is the superior wood of choice in saunas for health-minded people.  Poplar wood does not outgas any chemicals or have strong, objectionable odors making it superior to cedar, spruce, hemlock, and basswood for individuals addressing health needs related to toxicity or those with allergies, chronic disease, or chemical sensitivities. Poplar is the wood recommended by toxicologists for clinical or home use of therapy saunas used for medical purposes.

 

There is absolutely no plywood or particle-board in High Tech Health saunas.  Nearly every other sauna made uses at least plywood in the roof and floor.  Plywood and particle-board offgas formaldehyde, which is a carcinogen.

 

Even the wood inside the walls which cannot be seen is also Poplar.  Every other sauna we know of uses spruce or hemlock inside the walls because it is cheaper.

 

Poplar is a sustainable wood typically taking about 50 years to grow, compared to a cedar tree which needs 200 to 350 years.

Lowest Total EMF

 

Lowest Total EMF

 

There is no point in exposing yourself to EMF if you don’t have to. Virtually all other infrared saunas expose you to high magnetic fields, high electric fields, and if that wasn’t enough, some saunas even have Wifi or Bluetooth transmitters in them. Even the so-called “ultra low” EMF saunas do nothing to lower the high electric fields in them (we think that is pretty dishonest).

 

Your Transcend sauna will expose you to the LOWEST total level of EMF of any sauna available:

 

Magnetic Field Mitigation

  • Transcend saunas have both heaters and internal wiring with magnetic field mitigation
  • Lowest maximum magnetic fields of any sauna available (this is what counts!)
  • Average magnetic fields over the bench are so low as to be negligible
  • No DC or static magnetic fields (other companies simply move their magnetic fields to DC so they do not show up in typical measurements)

COMPARE

 

Electric Field Mitigation

  • Transcend saunas have both heaters and internal wiring with electric field mitigation
  • Our heaters have no electric field by design. Not just low, we mean ZERO.
  • Thanks to our heater's double shielding, even the outside of your sauna is shielded from electric fields

RF

  • No Wifi or Bluetooth transmitters in your sauna to expose you to high frequency EMF.

Bio-Resonance Heaters

 

Bio-Resonance Heaters™

 

Our infrared heaters are famous for their proven detoxification, high reliability, and high power efficiency.  In addition to detoxification, our infrared heaters are known for cardio-vascular benefits, pain relief, relaxation, skin health, and aiding in weight-loss among other things.  And our heaters do not emit near infrared so you do not need to worry about any of the risks associated with near infrared, such as harm to your eyes.

Fresh-air Fan

 

Fresh-air Fan

 

This High Tech Health exclusive feature maximizes oxygen and minimizes carbon dioxide in the cabin. This may seem like a small feature, but in the enclosed space of a sauna, carbon dioxide levels do rise rapidly and it is important to keep the body in balance to maximize the body's ability to detoxify itself. Without a fan, the stuffy air in other saunas can contribute to a feeling of claustrophobia.

 

CD-player

 

Pioneer® AM/FM/CD-Player

 

Enjoy premium sound while relaxing in your Transcend sauna.  This CD-player supports playing MP3 and WMA music from CD-R discs, as well as connecting any other source of music, such as an iPhone, to its auxilliary input.

 

LED Lighting & Chromotherapy

 

Superior Lighting & Chromotherapy

 

Standard in every Transcend sauna is perhaps the best lighting available in any sauna.  96 bright, long-lasting, and energy-efficient LEDs provide plenty of light for reading or enjoying the color-light therapy.  Controlled by a remote that takes easily-replacable AAA batteries (not those annoying watch batteries typical of flimsy credit-card-style remotes) you can set the brightness and color to match your mood, or set it to cycle between colors.  Whatever you choose, the Transcend lighting provides as much light as you could want.

Built-in Backrest

 

Built-in Ergonomic Backrest

 

Every Transcend sauna comes with an integrated ergonomic backrest so you do not need to buy anything extra to ensure your comfort.  You control its height during installation so you can be sure its located in the most comfortable position.

 

Dual Controls

 

Dual Touch-Sensitive Controls

 

A full control panel with touch-sensitive buttons is located both on the inside and outside of the Transcend sauna making it convenient to prepare your sauna for use.  Cheaper control panels use "bubble buttons", which arent as robust.  Its important to have controls on the outside of your sauna -- many companies make a lower priced product by eliminating a full control panel on the outside of the sauna, but this means you need to get inside the sauna to turn it on as well as everytime you want to check its temperature to see if its ready for use.  Since High Tech Health saunas are used in clinics world-wide, our saunas must provide an easy way for doctors to see the settings.

 

No Lift Assembly

 

No-Lift Assembly™

 

The Transcend sauna has no latches on the front or sides enhancing its clean appearance. Normally, this leaves only two choices for putting together a sauna: 1) fasten the walls together at the top and not make a solid connection between panels, or 2) use a key and keyhole system to securely lock the sides of the walls together. Number 2 is most common but requires a panel to be held in the air while 3 connection points get lined up. This can be a very frustrating and tiring process.

 

New in the Transcend sauna is a method that provides the secure connection of the keys without requiring a panel to be held in the air! We call it No-Lift Assembly™.  We know not all of our customers are going to be comfortable with a difficult assembly process, so we have made it as easy as possible while providing a product that is very solid when it is assembled.  We even made the roof as light as we could so it would be easier to lift into place.
