Our SaunaMed Infrared Saunas are constructed using various 2 types of wood; Canadian Red Cedar and Canadian Hemlock, but why?
Besides the disparity in price, there are several other key differences that are important to understand and we encourage our customers to do the research and learn the differences for themselves. Since the farming of wood is such a huge part of the sauna it should play a part in any purchasing decision.
Canadian Hemlock wood does not give off toxins, under high temperatures, which pine and Sitka wood do. The wood in our saunas has a fine grain and virtually no knots, which eliminates the chances of splinting or any rough surfaces and gives a softer feel. Hemlock is known for its natural strength and durability; it is naturally resistant to decay therefore ideal for sauna uses. Its longevity is 300 -1000 years,
