Far Infrared Sauna Features

Constant Concentrated Infrared
Because Far‐ Infrared Rays travel in a straight line, conventional Infrared heating elements cannot reach every part of your body. Infra‐Core's patented Far‐Infrared Heaters are coiled in a concave shape to allow for a much more concentrated range. In addition we use additional emitters to ensure a broader range of Far‐Infrared dispersion throughout the sauna. So no matter how you are positioned in a Infra‐Core Sauna, whether you are directly in front of a heater or not, your WHOLE BODY is effectively receiving the beneficial Far‐Infrared Rays.

Pure Ceramic Heaters
Infra‐Core Sauna's patented pure ceramic Far‐Infrared heaters are more effective at lower temperatures and LOWER WATTAGES because ceramic requires much less energy to heat than steel. Also our Rapid Air System enhances Far‐Infrared penetration and detoxification process by cooling emitters for an even greater concentration of Far‐Infrared. (Patent Pending).

SS Grills
#304 Surgical Stainless Steel grills (felt coated grills may release gases).

Infra‐Core Control
Commander Control panel with a safety shut‐off timer is standard on all models. After the preset cycle is complete, the heaters turn off automatically.

Cedar Backrest
For additional protection, Infra‐Core adds a protective grid which doubles as a backrest to shield your skin from the heater grills.

Renovation Services

If you have an existing sauna or steam room that needs repair, PPL have been constructing saunas since 1970 and are equipped and experienced in proper renovation and upgrading your spa amenities. Many times these amenities are left too long and become a liability and a distraction. PPL will provide an onsite visit and a list of recommendations to improve your spa amenity and ensure it meets code and is operating at peak efficiency.


  1. The interior wood on the walls, ceiling and benches dries out with time. This results in a potentially dangerous situation where benches can collapse or cause splinters, wall or ceilings or benches can catch fire 
  2. With time, the underlying insulation and vapour barrier will either sag or become moisture laden, resulting in higher heating costs.
  3. Old sauna odours minimize sauna use and enjoyment.
  4. Older saunas do not usually comform to modern safety standards and could be a liability.
