Until now it is just a design study – but yet an absolutely realistic one: In a few months KLAFS will launch a second product which is based on the revolutionary, room saving concept of the sauna S1: the infrared cabin S1. That means: Soon there will also be an infrared cabin on the market to retract at the touch of a button – just like a zoom lens on a camera.
This is how the infrared cabin of the future will look like.
The revolutionary, room saving sauna S1 has delivered a brilliant start: After its big success at the renowned “Plus X Award”, where the jury has awarded the world premiere from KLAFS shortly after the market launch in summer 2015 in five categories for its clear additional benefits and in addition bestow the title "Best product 2015/2016" in its product category to the sauna of the future, the S1 has won the prize „Special Mention“ at the German Design Award 2016.
This resounding success has encouraged KLAFS to work immediately on further room saving concepts. Now the market leader in pool, sauna and spa gives an absolutely realistic outlook on the next bang: It is already clear that there will be an infrared cabin S1, which will be available from september.
As with the sauna S1 the key highlight of the infrared cabin S1 is its minimal space requirements, which decreases again. In its fully retracted position this cabin will be only 45 centimeters deep (sauna S1: 60 centimeters), even smaller than the average closet. Yet it will be a really stylish, high-quality infrared cabin beautifully designed down to the last detail and with much space for – depending on the model – one or two persons.
By pressing a button on the new, extremely compact and slim controls on the front panel it will also extend into a ready-to-use infrared cabin in less than 20 seconds. That's because the infrared cabin S1 will consist, as the sauna S1, of three elements which can be completely fitted into each other. And all that absolutely synchronously, thanks to the patent-pending eMove technology.
If it is completely extended, the depth of the room will be 1,15 meters. The flexible connection technology between the individual elements will also ensure that it will easily overcome any small irregularities in the floor and can put a wide variety of floor coverings to the test with its unique skills.
This second version of the S1 will also be designed as a completely self-contained, mobile system. In this way, your guest bedroom, workroom or living room stays just the way it was wherever the infrared cabin is located. And the infrared cabin can be moved just like a closet if you move out.
Furthermore, KLAFS will use the so called frame stability construction also for the new infrared version of its revolutionary, room saving concept – an extremely robust wood sandwich wall construction, which significantly reduces the weight compared to the previous construction at KLAFS.
Two sizes of the infrared cabin S1 are scheduled: The model with one infrared seat will be 1,22 meters wide, the bigger model with two infrared seats will measure 1,72 meters in width. The seat surface is foldable, so that it is not in the way during the retraction of the cabin – just like a movie theater seat. And the infrared seats will be as supple and comfortable as a movie theater seat, because they have soft padding. Instead of the drinks holder at the seat, which is obligatory in movie theaters, there will be a rotatable mounting for tablets on the wall of the infrared cabin S1.
So the motto will be: Sit down, feel comfortable and enjoy the deep-penetrating warmness. The rest is done automatically, as usual with KLAFS, thanks to the unique SensoCare technology, which also conforms to the provisions of the RAL quality mark association for infrared cabins. KLAFS’ experts created this technology in a joint development with Physiotherm, the market leader in IR ray technology. Thanks to this technology you can lean back at ease since SensoCare ensures fully automatic activation of the preselected heating program as soon as you lean on it.
Soft, medium or intensive: Highly sensitive sensors in the infrared lamp measure the skin temperature during the entire program run and adapt the intensity of the ray individually to the body. So the body is deeply warmed in a particularly soft and gentle way. The protective grille with touch-friendly fluffy surface feel provides additional safety.
This will be the main highlights of the KLAFS infrared cabin S1:
- The world's first infrared cabin that retracts at your fingertips - just like the zoom lens on a
camera (only 45 centimeters deep in the fully retracted state!).
- Fully enclosed, mobile system.
- Two sizes to choose from – for one person (width: 1,22 meters) or two persons (width: 1,72
- The absolutely synchronous eMove technology extends the S1 at the touch of a button into a
ready-to-use infrared cabin nearly three times as deep in less than 20 seconds.
- Extremely robust wood sandwich wall construction with the frame stability construction, which
significantly reduces the weight compared to the previous construction at KLAFS.
- New infrared control ML 033: extremely compact and slim design, color touch screen,
intuitive menu navigation, high-quality triac power supply for silent operation and extreme
durability, password protection.
These main options will be available for the KLAFS infrared cabin S1:
- Colored light BELLASENSA with preset color lighting scenarios and the option of individual
light programs (flush with the ceiling).
- RelaxAudio system: the rear wall of the infrared cabin acts as a loudspeaker membrane, music
can be simply transferred via Bluetooth from your smartphone or tablet.
