Not only are our Solocarbon™ heaters the most effective infrared heater on the market, they are also the safest. Our proprietary heater design produces virtually NO EMF. Our exclusive manufacturing process allows us to cancel out EMF to levels that are virtually undetectable.
Our heaters have gone through comprehensive third-party testing to ensure safe levels of EMF. Electro Magnetic Fields are measured in milligauss (mG). When EMF levels are measured inside Sunlighten saunas around your seated position, EMF levels are virtually undetectable.
Please see the testing below performed by EMF testing lab VitaTech Electromagnetics. These EMF reading are measured directly on the heater (Diagram 1.0). Where you are seated in the sauna, the levels are virtually zero.

AC ELF EMF Testing – Sunlighten Sauna Panel Heater
The EMF levels of Sunlighten heater panels were considered by VitaTech to be excellent with the component magnetic field levels measuring at 0.05mG or less on all axis.
The Truth About EMF & Infrared Saunas
Sunlighten saunas are safe – and always have been. Our saunas have always been made with steel conduit electrical shielding to make them as safe as possible.
There has been a lot of buzz recently about EMF levels and infrared saunas. Despite extensive research over the past 20 years, two national research organizations (the National Research Council and the National Institute of Health) have looked at the studies and have concluded that there is no strong evidence supporting EMF exposures pose a health risk. Although the current scientific evidence provides no definitive answers regarding EMF, there is enough uncertainty that some people want to reduce their exposure to EMF.
The truth is, the recent EMF buzz has taken us by surprise because our saunas have always been low EMF. For more than a decade, we have made quality products with health and safety in mind. Only Sunlighten infrared heaters have been tested by independent engineers who concluded that our proprietary heating technologies meet the most rigorous standards for safety, emissivity and power for infrared heater applications. This is one of the reasons why Sunlighten remains the #1 sauna brand recommended by health experts!
When purchasing a sauna, your top two priorities should be safety and effectiveness. Solocarbon® heating technology is the foundation for all of our sauna products. It is the only heater on the market clinically shown to raise core temperature, lower blood pressure and aid in weight loss.
Solocarbon® panels contain a unique proprietary blend of materials that are 100% quality controlled by Sunlighten™. This means – unlike other saunas on the market – we can ensure the safety & effectiveness of each individual heater.
If you are purchasing a sauna for health benefits, the single most important element to consider is heater emissivity which determines how efficient infrared heat is conducted and emitted. If a sauna is not efficient at emitting infrared, you are not receiving the potential benefits. Solocarbon® heaters are 95-99% efficient at emitting infrared. When researching infrared saunas, always ask for emissivity data on the specific heater you are considering. This determines the quality and effectiveness of infrared heat.
Sunlighten contracted the services of Bruker Analytical Services to verify the emissivity of several heater materials. Emissivity is the ability of a material to absorb and release energy in the form of infrared heat. To best measure emissivity, we measured the reflection of energy off of a heater and subtracted that from 1 to calculate the emissivity.
