When we went about designing and redesigning our infrared sauna models recently – the mPulse, the Signature, and the Solo – we knew that retaining control of the development and manufacturing was key to producing the best, industry-leading products possible. No copycat saunas here.
This control may be more complicated and more time-consuming but we here at Sunlighten are convinced that it is the absolute best approach to infrared sauna design and manufacturing. Unlike many sauna retailers, Sunlighten controls its entire design and manufacturing process.
Not content to buy a pre-designed and pre-made product to sell, Sunlighten constantly works with designers, engineers and scientists to research and develop new products. In recent years, our exclusive efforts have resulted in first-to-market products like the full spectrum mPulse infrared saunas, the all-new far infrared Signature sauna and the redesigned Solo System.
The creative process pays off. In 2010, our newly launched mPulse model was honored as an Innovation Award winner – a best-in-show designation at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Sunlighten also holds several patents – including the patented Magna-Seal assembly system we designed for use in our wooden saunas.
After the initial design process is complete, we put our saunas to the test with health and safety inspections by qualified engineers and other professionals. Each of our infrared saunas has been put through extensive safety and efficiency testing and certifications.
When we are satisfied with our design, Sunlighten’s sourcing (choosing raw materials and parts) and manufacturing process begins. We control and oversee our own sourcing and manufacturing. We know that that there are sauna retailers out there claiming to use our manufacturers but that is simply just not true.
As with the industry as a whole, our saunas are produced in Asia. Our advantage is that we control our manufacturing facilities in terms of quality assurance and exclusivity, similar to the way Apple sources its products. We have Sunlighten associates employed overseas to ensure total quality control. Home office employees also make regular visits to oversee manufacturing (that’s one of our headquarters-based team members up there in the photo on the top right, visiting the manufacturing facility).
Sunlighten takes every opportunity to be a leader in the health and wellness industry. We are not content to copy others and claim to be just like them as seems to be the industry norm these days. Sunlighten strives to lead at every opportunity.
