MAAX Spas-A Closer Look
Hot Tubs and Spas, Spas
Relaxing at home has never been so wonderful
At Pettis Pools & Patio, we carry the MAAX line of hard-sided spas. We think they are the best on the market and here is a closer look at some of the construction features to help show you why.
Moisture-proof Base: The ABS Sealed Base is an integral part of the support structure in a MAAX Spas® hot tub. Its one-piece construction provides a rugged foundation that seals the bottom of the spa, locking in heat and sealing out moisture.
Steel Substructure: 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, the inorganic properties will never rot, warp, split or crack and eliminate worries of animal infestation or termite damage.
Superior Energy Management: Thermo-Lock™ is the ultimate in sound and heat energy management for your hot tub. The unique thermal barrier technology recycles radiant heat energy for faster, more efficient heating and energy cost reductions. Radiant heat reflective insulation is applied to the sealed ABS base, which prohibits heat loss through the floor. All four sides, plus the floor are lined with reflective material, combined with BlueMAAX® to create an infrared thermal barrier. Radiant heat energy from the pumps and equipment reflects back to the spa and is absorbed into the plumbing. This helps raise and maintain water temperature, improving heat efficiency. Energy created by the spa stays in the spa.
BlueMAAX Insulation: BlueMAAX™: 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.
Quiet to Run: The same insulation that makes a MAAX Spas hot tub energy efficient also aids in it’s quiet operation. Sound energy is trapped and deadened inside the spa by the thermal barriers. Quiet operation is essential to ensure a peaceful and relaxing experience throughout the entire backyard environment.
Natural-Looking Exterior: 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.
Premium Grade Cover: MAAX Spas® premium grade insulating covers are unique and the tailored fit design keeps water from evaporating while maintaining the perfect spa temperature. The cover also acts as an important safety barrier to the spa.
