Spa Design - Traditional sauna or Infra red PDF Print

What are the basic differences? The traditional timber sauna normally operates at around 80-100 degrees C and this heat from a stove is used to heat the air in the room. The Infra red sauna200x150sauna however, is actually heating the body directly and not the air. In the traditional sauna water is introduced on top of the heat source to add humidity to the air. The time for heating the infra red sauna is usually between 10-20 minutes, whereas the traditional sauna will take a minimum of half an hour to be ready for the first guest. It takes longer to start perspiring in an infrared sauna as the temperatures are much lower. The spa design has to take this into account as , it can for example impact on such areas as electrical load and water consumption and non slip surfaces.
