This of course is the first question and perhaps the easiest to answer, because Vidlux range of saunas is the healthiest saunas available in this category of saunas….. FACT!
No one on the market today can offer the same design, level of health benefits or customer satisfaction as Vidalux……. FACT!
If you’ve been researching saunas for more that an hour or so, more than likely you’ve seen the ‘Carbon Vs Ceramic’ arguement being put forward, before we look into our Home saunas, lets first get rid of the jargon and lets move to the facts.
Let’s first explore the advantages and disadvantages of all the saunas types very briefly. We explain in more detail towards the bottom of the article
Ceramic Only Heaters
PROS – Heat cabin quickly, produce a strong FAR infrared close up
CONS – Cold spots away from heater specially in large saunas, Only FAR Infrared, short spread of wavelengh, Does not penetrate the user deeply. Long sessions not advised. Less benefical than carbon only. Old technology
Carbon Only Heaters
PROS – Works better at a lower temperature, user can withstand longer use, penetrates much deeper into the user, more energy efficent, heats sauna better, no cold spots, more advanced and benefical versus ceramic only
CONS – Only FAR infrared, Long time for sauna to heat, large panels required
Far Only Saunas
Missing the benefits of short and medium range
First – throw ceramic rods away, to be honest they never made it on to the design stage, this is such and old technology from decades gone by
After months of testing, our Vidalux’s R&D department confirmed that the ideal way to deliver the best and healthiest saunas was install a hybrid of both nano carbon and full spectrum carbon fibre heaters inside the same sauna to COMPLETELY ELIMINATE all the disadvantages whilst keep all the advantages of all the old fashioned sauna types
PROS – Full spectrum of near, medium and FAR insfrared, Strong wavelengh, no cold spots, penetrates deep into the user, energy efficent, user can turn off back heaters and have the carbon only heaters, much more beneficial for health, increased perspiration at low temperatures
CONS – None!!
Full spectrum is a reference to the entire coverage of the infrared spectrum: near infrared, mid-infrared and far infrared wavelengths.
A lot of infrared saunas on the market today cover only one of these ranges, the ‘FAR Infrared sauna‘.
These inferior saunas completely bypass the numerous health benefits of the remaining two ranges.
All the models in our range incorporate our patented ‘Complete Heat Technology’ Full Spectrum heaters. These heaters are high output infrared heaters producing near, mid and far infrared waves.
While the majority of the benefit you’ll receive in your sauna will come from the far infrared band, there are added benefits and enhancements by adding in the Near and Medium wavelengths.
Adding these two additional wavelengths not only adds these additional benefits but also vastly improves the effectiveness of the Far Infrared band.
With the deeper penetration, full spectrum infrared will raise your core body temperature faster, better aides in healing the body, greater reduces inflammation as well as other all-round performance increases.
It is thought an additional 10-15% benefit is gained from a full spectrum sauna versus a FAR only sauna.
Simply search google and you find companies that offer these heaters as a £200 to £500 upgrade on their ceramic heaters, such is their advantages. Not only that, we’ve redeveloped our next generation of carbon fibre to offer a 20% increase of the infrared output (emissivity) versus regular carbon fibre heaters and with virtually NO EMF.
Near Infrared – between 0.075 – 1.5 microns. The shortest wavelength absorbed and penetrates just below the surface of the skin and creates perspiration that promotes and acts are the gateway to expel the bodies toxins and promotes healing and revitalisation of the skin
Mid Infrared – between 1.5 – 5.6 microns Penetrates deeper into the body’s soft tissue increasing circulation, releasing oxygen and white blood cells from the immune system
Far Infrared – between 5.6 – 15 microns is the longest wavelength which penetrates the fat cells causing vasodilation, where the fat cells vibrate to expel toxins, resulting in the greatest levels of detoxification and stimulation of your metabolism to aid in weight-loss.
All humans send and receive Far infrared waves naturally. The range of far infrared waves generated by the human body is 6 to 20 microns. The optimal micron output range of an Infrared heater, which is best absorbed by the body, is between 6 and 12 microns, this range is very close to the resonant frequency of a water molecule which makes perfect sense since our bodies are made up of almost 70% water.
Our ‘Complete Heat Technology’ heaters cover all three Infrared ranges but are developed to concentrate on this 6 to 12 micron range specifically. A large percentage of the wavelengths are at 9.4 microns, the same wavelength produced by the human body.
This results in the body been able to naturally absorb more infrared than at any other range, making our saunas more beneficial
How it Works?
When far infrared waves are applied to water molecules, these molecules begin to vibrate. This vibration reduces the ion bonds and causes a release of cellular toxins such as mercury, aluminium, cholesterol and toxic gasses such as sulfur and formaldehyde. This optimal micron output also allows for deeper penetration of far infrared heat, which improves pain relief, detoxification, circulation, and increased peripheral blood flow.
Vidalux clinical testing demonstrates that our heaters, only available on our saunas, produce near perfect far-infrared rays that work naturally in harmony with your body.
‘Complete Heat Technology’ Nano-Carbon Crystal Heaters
Sited on the walls and floor of a Vidalux sauna, these long-life, next-generation Zero-EMF panels produce the high-quality FAR infrared spectrum that this technology was designed to deliver. The unbeatable level of health rewards obtained by the user also ensures the cabin is heated throughout with no cold spots while keeping the running cost down.
‘Complete Heat Technology’ Full Spectrum Carbon Fibre Ruby Quartz Heaters
Underneath the ergonomically designed backrest, located close to the user and those large muscle groups, just where the body needs it. These full quartz embedded next generation, near zero EMF carbon fibre heaters begin to heat the sauna instantly, producing a powerful, well balanced, high emissivity full spectrum infrared heat. The Near, Middle and Far wavelengths from these heaters not only delivers additional benefits, but it also increases the benefits of the most useful spectrum, the FAR wavelength.
Because Far- Infrared Rays travel in a straight line, conventional Infrared heating elements found in over 90% of ceramic heaters in saunas on the market cannot reach every part of your body.
Partly because on the face of things, items can look like a bargain, most saunas are sold at the bottome end of the price market and this is really a false economy in every sense.
All our Carbon Fibre Full Spectrum heaters are coiled in a concave shape and use surgical-grade stainless steel deflectors designed to maximize the infrared output. This increase the user/benefits of the heater, DRAMATICALY
