Appliance Grade Construction 2017-01-27T13:55:07+00:00


The steel structure and Northern Exposure® Insulation System design in MAAX Collection hot tubs allows for complete service of the entire structure and all mechanical parts. Essentially the spa can be serviced and brought back to factory specifications right in your backyard.

We call this feature “appliance grade”.

The Ultimate Hot Tub Insulation System

This unique thermal 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.

Lifetime Steel Structure Warranty

The steel frame is the backbone and support for the entire spa. The Steel Structure of your MAAX Collection spa carries a lifetime warranty. This means for the lifetime of your ownership you can feel secure knowing any component of the structural frame will be replaced or fixed to factory specifications should it become damaged in the operation of the spa.

  • 40% lighter, yet 250% stronger than traditional wood frames

  • Weatherproof

  • Corrosion-free

Steel Sub-Structure

The Steel Sub-Structure used in MAAX Collection hot tubs has the highest strength to weight ration of any building material available. The 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 ot last, the inorganic properties will never rot, warp, 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.


Exclusive to MAAX Spas, the Northern Exposure® insulation system also 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 the urethane foam in “foam filled” hot tubs. (Foam filling produces volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) which are harmful to the environment.)

Lifetime Insulation Warranty

The insulation system in your new MAAX Collection hot tub is warranted to maintain the same insulation value as it had at the time it was manufactured. The high R value, appliance grade construction will allow a technician to service the entire spa and bring it back to factory specifications at home, for the lifetime you own your spa.

Lifetime Warranties

As you enjoy your spa over the years you’ll feel secure knowing it can be maintained at the same high level of efficiency as the day it was made.
