 Ultra Low EMF Technology

Solocarbon heaters effective infrared heaters,  Sunlighten's proprietary heater design produces virtually NO EMF. Their exclusive manufacturing process allows us to cancel out EMF to levels that are virtually undetectable.  Sunlighten heaters have gone through comprehensive third-party testing to ensure safe levels of EMF. Electro Magnetic Fields are measured in milligauss (mG). Since there are no EMF safety standards set in the U.S., they have used the Swedish safety standard of 3 mG as the benchmark. When EMF levels are measured inside Sunlighten saunas around your seated position, EMF levels are virtually undetectable.

Please see the testing below performed by EMF testing lab VitaTech Electromagnetics. These EMF reading are measured directly on the heater (Diagram 1.0). Where you are seated in the sauna, the levels are virtually zero.   The EMF levels of Sunlighten heater panels were considered by VitaTech to be excellent with the component magnetic field levels measuring at 0.05mG or less on all axis.

There has been a lot of buzz recently about EMF levels and infrared saunas. Despite extensive research over the past 20 years, two national research organizations (the National Research Council and the National Institute of Health) have looked at the studies and have concluded that there is not strong evidence supporting EMF exposures pose a health risk. Although the current scientific evidence provides no definitive answers regarding EMF, there is enough uncertainty that some people want to reduce their exposure to EMF.

Only Sunlighten infrared heaters have been tested by independent engineers who concluded that our proprietary heating technologies meet the most rigorous standards for safety, emissivity and power for infrared heater applications. This is one of the reasons why Sunlighten remains the #1 sauna brand recommended by health experts!

What is truly important when buying an infrared sauna – Safety and Effectiveness!

When purchasing a sauna, your top two priorities should be safety and effectiveness. Solocarbon® heating technology is the foundation for all of our sauna products. Solocarbon® panels contain a unique proprietary blend of materials that are 100% quality controlled by Sunlighten™. This means – unlike other saunas on the market – Sunlighten can ensure the safety & effectiveness of each individual heater. Not only have Sunlighten saunas been electrically certified to meet safety and performance standards, they have also been environmentally tested and approved for no off-gassing. Visit the Sunlighten website to view their safety certifications.
