Northern Exposure® is 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.                

Available on 5100+ models.


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.)


Elite Spa’s premium grade insulating covers contain a unique copper lining, removable heat sealing pillows to vent excess heat off in the summer and a tailored fit to keep the heat in when cooler. The cover also acts as an important safety barrier to the spa.


Elite Spas’ Bottom Pan interlocks with the steel frame, forming a superior foundation for the spa to rest on.  The single piece unit locks in heat, seals out moisture and protects the spa from bugs and unwanted pests.


The Elite Spas Steel Sub-Structure is the key feature that sets Elite Spas apart.  Engineered to exact tolerances, it allows for complete integration of all the systems of the spa.  The lightweight, high-strength steel frame will never rot, warp, split or crack.  It will never expand or contract with moisture, which over time can damage the spa’s exterior.  A 250% superior strength to weight ratio over conventional wood frames provides you with a lighter and stronger unit.  Plus, with the addition of greater long-term corrosion protection, your sub-structure is weatherproof, requiring zero maintenance.  Elite Spas steel framed hot tubs are built to provide optimal support and to help provide easier access for service with bolt-on panels.


Elite Spas steel framed hot tubs are built to provide optimal support and to help provide easier access for service with bolt-on panels. In order to maintain the highest level of satisfaction, Elite Spas steel sub-structure is covered by a lifetime structural warranty.


Every Elite Spas hot tub has an attractive interior finish mad from continuous cast acrylic. The hard non-porous surface resists stains, fading, scratches and chemical abuse. With the look of granite, pearl or metalescence, this extremely tough finish offers beauty and peace of mind. Attractive, versatile and easy to clean – it is sure to match any backyard design.
