Yes! In-between the Polystone liner of the tub and the ThermoWood Staves is 5cm of polystyrene for insulating. Meaning your water stays hotter for longer.

We value integrity here at Alpine Spas and take exceptional pride in our products. We proudly guarantee that every Alpine Spa is meticulously crafted with over 40 hours of skilled workmanship involved.
All of our spas are fitted with industry-leading components, such as Balboa® and SpaNet control systems. We use American-made Lucite® acrylic shells and the latest in water purification systems. Each model is also fitted with our robust Four Layer Insulation System, designed to heat your spa quicker and save you money.
In most cases, the answer is no. We’re a safety-first company and carefully design our portable spas to meet the fencing requirements stipulated in Council requirements.
Here are the stipulations made by councils.
- A cover may be used as a barrier for a small heated pool with a water surface area of 5m² or less and with walls that stand 760mm above the adjacent floor or ground.
- The cover must restrict the entry of children when closed.
- The cover must be able to withstand a reasonably foreseeable load.
- The cover must be able to be readily returned to the closed position and have signage indicating its child safety features.
Our spa covers far exceed the minimum requirements outlined.
Yes, all our spas and swim spas come with fully insulated, lockable covers. Our spa covers are specifically designed to trap the heat, even in the depths of winter!
Your spa must be placed on a sturdy, flat surface that won’t move or waiver under the total weight of your spa once it’s filled. Do not place your spa on grass.
Your required power supply will depend on the spa pool you choose. Spa pools can range from 15amp to 32amp and sometimes even 45amp. Some 10amp Spa Pools exist on the market however they are very underpowered with small heaters and pumps that struggle to maintain heat – we do not offer these.
The majority of our spa pools are 15amp and include a cable with a plug that can be plugged into a suitable 15amp socket. Any spa pools that require higher than 15amp and generally hardwired directly to the switchboard on their own dedicated feed.
Typically an electrician will install a 15amp outdoor socket, isolation switch and RCD for you to plug your spa pool into.
Spas with a higher draw than 15amp would require an electrician to wire directly into the spa pool controller, set up an isolation switch and feedback to the switchboard protected by an RCD.
We understand that understanding power supply requirements can be daunting. Call us to talk with an expert 0800 99 33 88. We’re here 7 days a week!

One of the main differences between a traditional sauna and an infrared sauna is the heat involved while inside the unit.
Traditional dry saunas use temperatures as high as 80 to 90 degrees Celsius, which can overwhelm those who are more sensitive to the heat.
Infrared saunas use a much milder temperature environment of between 45 to 65 degrees Celsius. However, because the heat of infrared saunas travels much deeper into the body, they can cause a more vigorous sweat at lower temperature.
Traditional saunas use a stove to heat the air. As the temperature of the air increases around you, the temperature of your body increases as well due to absorption by heat convection. This causes your body to start the cooling process by transporting blood closer to the surface of the skin and opening pores through sweating.
Infrared saunas also heat the surrounding air but to a lesser degree. Instead, infrared saunas use infrared heaters to emit a specific wavelength of infrared light. Your skin absorbs this wavelength, causing your body’s temperature to rise. This elicits the same effects as a traditional sauna with less overall heat needed.
Another difference between a traditional sauna and an infrared sauna is the amount of power required to operate each unit.
Traditional saunas require more overall power to run. Our traditional saunas have either a 6kw heater (Barrel) or a 9kw heater (Hut). Our infrared saunas have either a 1.5kw heater (Oslo) or a 2.4kw heater (Copenhagen).
This means that a traditional sauna is more expensive to run than an infrared sauna. This can make a difference, depending on how often you use the unit.
Besides their stunning wooden design, Saunas are a fantastic way of detoxifying the whole body through the perspiration process, helping to remove waste from the body and skin. This can improve overall health by enhancing blood circulation which can reduce joint stiffness and may relieve other conditions caused by poor circulation. Saunas are know for relieving stress and tension, as well as, rejuvenating skin cells leaving you feeling relaxed and looking youthful and refreshed.
