ABS Sealed Base
The ABS Sealed Base is an integral part of the support structure in a MAAX Collection hot tub. Its one-piece construction provides a rugged foundation that seals the bottom of the spa, locking in heat and sealing out moisture.
Exclusive to MAAX Spas, the Thermo-Lock insulation system now features the eco-friendly ‘BlueMAAX’ insulation. Made from recycled natural fiber, it is approved by the U.S. Green Building Council. The insulation contains no chemical irritants, is treated with a borate-based solution to prevent mold/mildew growth, pest infestation, and acts as a fire retardant. BlueMAAX replaces urethane foam commonly used in ‘’foam filled’’ hot tubs. The ‘’foam filling’’ process in conventional spas can produce as much as 50 lbs. of volatile organic components (VOC’s) which are harmful to the environment. The new energy system also allows for easy service access, and can be taken out and put back together to factory specifications right in your home.
DuraMAAX is a state of the art wood-alternative material that has the look and feel of natural wood, without the maintenance. The material is impact resistant, impervious to weather or insect damage and will never splinter, crack or rot. The attractive exterior locks in heat and seals out cold air providing a beautiful look and feel.
Northern Exposure is the ultimate hot tub insulation system. This unique barrier technology recycles the free heat energy for more efficient heating and lower energy costs. All four sides of the spa, plus the floor and cover are lined with reflective copper material to reflect radiant heat energy generated from the pumps back into the spa. Heat is absorbed back into the plumbing helping raise and maintain water temperature. Finally the entire exterior of the hot tub is wrapped in 3M Thinsulate Insulation, the same incredible material utilized in winter clothing. This three layer patented system ensures energy created by the spa stays in the spa.
The Steel Sub-Structure used in MAAX Spas units has the highest strength to weight ratio of any building material available. The light-gauge steel frame provides greater structural integrity than wood, as well as superior corrosion protection for a much longer life. Unlike wood, steel is dimensionally stable. It will not expand or contract with moisture, which over time can damage the spa’s exterior. Sturdy and built to last longer, the inorganic properties will never rot, wrap, split or crack and eliminate worries of animal infestation or termite damage. Stronger, more durable, and ideal for the environment, it’s the obvious choice for a lifetime of worry-free fun.
