Infrared sauna review: Brighton Sauna Alpine

Another sauna in my series of 2-person infrared sauna reviews is Alpine sauna from Brighton Sauna. There is no information on their site how long this company works in infrared sauna industry, but they say that their company is run by “sauna industry veterans”. I have pleasant impression from their site – it is functional, contains complete information about sauna design and models and has a decent buying guide. They list benefits, but say clearly that an infrared sauna won’t do miracles to your health. My advice is to visit their site even if you are looking for a different sauna model.

Here is an overview of a 2-person Alpine sauna model:

Wood: White wood (spruce, hemlock fir).

External dimensions: Width: 53 in, Depth: 49 in, Height: 79 1/2 in

Internal dimensions: Width: 48 1/2 in, Depth: 44 1/2 in, Height: 72 1/2 in

Heaters: Ceramic heaters, on front and back panels.

Outlets: 110 V, 15 Amps.

Accessories: Ionizer, optional multimedia kit (8.1in LCD with DVD, CD, CD-R, MP3 support).

Warranty: Heaters – lifetime, controls and wood – 5 years. I found no info on a multimedia kit warranty and suppose it is a common 1 year warranty.

Price: $3595.00

The overall impression is that Alpine sauna model has a decent, thought-out design. It’s all in the details: adjustable feet, adjustable lighting direction, non-solid bench and backrests design, so infrared ray can reach every part of the body. Heaters have T-form, matching the human body position on the bench.

The bench is 24in in depth, and has comfortable non-adjustable backrests. In every sauna unit there is a ionizer included, which should help to remove sweat odor left in the sauna after usage, but its effectiveness is in question, and it can be more marketing move than real benefit.

The unit can be assembled easily with the help of the magnet locking system, similar to that in Armana 2 from Sunlight Saunas. Unfortunately there is no assembly guide or owner’s manual on the Brighton Sauna site, so one can’t see the details of sauna installation and assembly.

The final conclusion is that attention to the details in design makes Brighton Sauna Alpine a very good quality sauna in a row of available 2-person infrared saunas on the market.

    […] The main advantage of this sauna is its price. It costs $1000-$2000 less than some other 2-person models (see Health Mate HM-NSE 2 or Brighton Sauna Alpine). Drawbacks of such a low price are evident – it is clearly a budget model. It is smaller, has common ceramic heaters, and its design is not very appealing. […]

    I have owned the Alpine since March 2005. I believe that was their first year. It is the lower end company of another infrared sauna company, but I can’t remeber their name.

    I got it for two reasons, one it was less expensive with the quality components and two the LCD screen. Watching DVDs passes the time. The little LCD screen just went out so I am going to upgrade to the new one.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed my Alpine and everything is working great. I see they have made quite a number of improvements. I paid $2695 for mine, plus $200 for the LCD monitor, which is about 7 inches with a double glass case.

    It is simple to put together and take apart.

    I just couldn’t be happier with my suana and use it quite regularly.
