HTE was the first company to introduce
'sauna' to the public in North America. It is called
the FIR Hothouse Dome.
The traditional sauna companies took note and followed
suit, as well as
many copycat dome type units. All they did was
introduce carbon coated
metal rods or ceramic plates to their existing units
and then renamed
them as far infrared sauna.
saunas, to clarify
NONE of the traditional saunas (or the
copycat domes) use the same unique patented
crystal chip surface as HTE's Hothouse
infrared sauna dome which emits 100% far
infrared. Most infrared saunas emit from only 40% to
around 90% infrared (very few units reach 90%). Some
units generate too
much heat and thereby dramatically reduce the
actual infrared emission
