Clearlight Saunas have a no emf carbon/low emf ceramic heater combination called True Wave II Heaters and also offer the Near Infrared Red Light Heater for Full Spectrum. The Clearlight saunas come in Basswood or Cedar and the Sanctuary Sauna line includes the Near Infrared Red Light Heaters.
Clearlight uses True Wave II heaters are the only combination Carbon and Ceramic far infrared heater. These heater are truly the best of both worlds. The carbon allow the True Wave II heaters to produce long wave far infrared heat. The long infrared wave will penetrate deeper into your body and give you the benefits you are looking for. The patented organic Ceramic compound that we add to the carbon give the heaters a very high infrared output. Traditional carbon heaters are weak, but not our True Wave II heaters. They produce exceptional quality infrared and a lot of it. Please see the comparison test we performed below.
The heaters are positioned so the infrared heat is concentrated on your body. Since infrared heat travels in a straight line, any heater that goes up over your head is only heating the air. By using our high output heaters, we can concentrate the heat exclusively on your body so you get the most benefit. This means better performance well within the optimal wave range of 7 to 14 microns with a good portion of wavelengths at 9.4--which is the frequency at which the human body absorbs infrared heat.
Over the last 5 years there has been a big debate as to whether Carbon heaters or Ceramic heaters are "better". Carbon heaters produce high quality, long wave infrared heat, but the problem is they do not produce a lot of infrared heat - in our testing they seemed weak. Ceramic heaters are powerful and emit a lot of infrared heat, but the wavelength tended to be shorter, thus less therapeutic.
Our R&D department at Clearlight Infrared has ended that debate by introducing the ONLY combination Carbon/Ceramic far infrared heater.
Clearlight Infrared True Wave II far infrared heaters combine Carbon and Ceramic to produce healing infrared heat that is unmatched. Our heaters are comprised of micro-thin carbon fibers (1/1000th the thickness of a human hair) combined with our patented ceramic compound. We start with a high quality organic carbon fiber sheet. We then add our high output (high emissivity) ceramic compound to the heater allowing out heaters to produce long wave infrared heat with a very high infrared output. They are fantastic infrared heaters!
The carbon in our heaters allows the heater to produce long wave far infrared heat. This long wave infrared heat penetrates deeper into your body and the infrared heat is more readily absorbed. The ceramic in our heaters gives the heaters a very high infrared output when compared to traditional carbon heaters so we can concentrate the heat directly on your body. We also developed the first and only virtually no-EMF combination carbon/ceramic heaters. This patent pending process allows us to cancel out virtually all of the EMF (electromagnetic fields).
Using a Tri-Field EMF meter and measuring directly on top of our True Wave II heaters, our heaters have an average EMF output of about 2.5mg. Compare that to over 100 mg for most of our competitors carbon based heaters. In addition, when we use the Tri-Field meter and measure where you sit in the sauna, there is virtually no EMF.
Why Clearlight Infrared True Wave II™ far infrared heaters are better for you?
The larger size of our True Wave II™ infrared sauna heaters mean more surface area, resulting in lower surface temperature. The result of this low temperature is that our heaters produce more FAR or LONG wave infrared heat which is more therapeutic for your body. This means better performance within the optimal wavelength range of 7 to 10 microns with a large portion of wavelengths at 9.4 microns. The human body absorbs more infrared at the 9.4 micron range than any other range.
With the high far infrared output (emissivity) of our heaters, you not only get the highest quality infrared heat, but you get a lot of it, and right where you want it - your body core. We position our heaters so that they surround your body concentrating the heat on your body core.
The key to infrared therapy is heating your body directly so you want heat on the front of your body and on the back of your body. Every Clearlight Infrared model has heaters on the front wall, back wall, side walls and underneath the bench. Most companies using carbon heater saunas don't have heaters on the front walls. That is a big mistake. Without heating the front of your body you will not raise your core body temperature as effectively and you will not sweat and detox as effectively.
Most of our competitors also run their heaters very high up on the wall way over your head. They do this because their heaters have a low infrared heat output and they must add more heater to sufficiently heat the cabin. With the heaters extended up to the ceiling, the heater is just heating the cabin, not your body. That also extends the heaters into the head region, a real no-no in infrared therapy. Because of the high output of our Clearlight Infrared True Wave II heaters, we do not have to extend them up into the head region.
As you can see from the infrared photo on the left, our True Wave II heaters heat your body very evenly. The total coverage of your body core is the key to effective infrared therapy.
Using our patent-pending infrared heater technology, our True Wave II heaters are the only carbon based infrared heaters with virtually No-EMF. Our exclusive manufacturing process allows us to cancel out EMF to levels that are virtually undetectable.
Using a ultra-sensitive EMF testing equipment, all of our heaters are tested to ensure safe levels of EMF. Electro Magnetic Fields are measured in milligauss (mG). It is generally accepted that exposure to EMF should not exceed 3 milligauss. The EPA (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency) has proposed a safety standard of 3 mG. Sweden has also set a recommended safety limit of 3 mG. When EMF levels are measured inside the Clearlight Infrared Sauna all around your seated position, EMF levels are virtually undetectable.
