Which is better, traditional or infrared?

It is really personal choice. We have an affordable, reliable, traditional residential sauna that can be set up in less than 2 hours with no need for hard wiring/plumbing or hassle.

There is ongoing debate about which is best. Ie Sauna X will extract more toxins than sauna Y. In truth both will have produce much the same result. You get in, you sweat, you relax, you feel good. The main differences are, in a traditional sauna, typically

  • Its hotter
  • You need less sauna time
  • Humidity can be controlled
  • Wooden structure adds to the aroma
  • Essence oils can be added

We have tried both. We prefer traditional. Most commercial saunas are traditional, its the experience you expect when you hear the word sauna. We feel traditional saunas are poorly represented on the residential market limiting sauna users who prefer the stove and stones experience.

Traditional saunas are over three times more popular than infrared saunas. In Finland, the sauna capital of the world, they choose traditional saunas over infrared saunas almost 98% of the time (source)

Is there limited stock?

Yes due to the huge increase in shipping times, raw materials lead times and rapidly increasing material costs we have limited stock available until March next year. Prices are likely to increase in Q2 of 2022. We like to keep our saunas as affordable as possible but with shipping costs increasing month on month it is difficult to absorb.

 How long will my sauna take to arrive?

Your sauna will typically arrive via pallet courier within 2-3 days. You will need to be present to sign for and unload the delivery. Pallet deliveries are kerbside only meaning the driver is not insured to help you get the sauna inside. If you have arranged for delivery and installation, we will make sure you are home to show us where you want the sauna installed and what time and date suits you best.

Do you ship to GB?

No, we cannot ship to GB. Our partners at CYC Fitness handle all GB sales. You can contact gary@cycfitness.co.uk or visit their website at  https://www.cycfitness.co.uk/shop/saunas/54

How does the packaged sauna look upon arrival?

Our saunas arrive via pallet courier in 4 boxes. Each box must be carefully transported inside where installation will take place. We recommend 2 people lift each box with care.

My egg timer is stuck, can I get a replacement

Should i use a towel in the sauna,

Following proper sauna etiquette can reduce the amount of time spent cleaning your sauna. Using absorbent bath or beach towels help reduce stains caused by perspiration, dirt, and sweat. Towels control for the natural excess perspiration that occurs in saunas from staining the wood. They keep your sauna looking new and clean. Place fresh towels on benches and floors each time someone uses the sauna and remember to bring a personal towel to dry and exfoliate your own skin. Remember to always use fresh towels with each use. Stains that result from perspiration are expected and can be treated with household dish soap, water, and a little elbow grease.

How do I clean my sauna?

With the use of your sauna will come the need to clean it after some time, we recommend cleaning once a month under regular or somewhat frequent use. Clean saunas are the most effective and provide the most return on your investment. If you do happen to track dirt in your sauna, you can remove stains using a mild dish detergent mixed with warm water. To keep your sauna smelling fresh, mop the floors with a chemical-free, mild-detergent.

Your sauna should not be operating or producing heat while you’re cleaning. Physical activity within a sauna, while the sauna is producing heat, can cause additional strain on the body and is not recommended while cleaning. Additionally, household cleaning chemicals can react differently when exposed to high temperatures and the inhalation of fumes related to household chemicals is a cause for serious concern, do not clean your sauna while it is running. While cleaning, ensure your sauna door remains open to ensure fresh air circulation. Delay your next use of the sauna until it has been properly restored and the area is dry and free of residual chemicals.

Can I pour water on the stones in my sauna?

Yes we recommend adding water slowly and gradually to achieve the desired humidity. You MUST let the sauna get to full heat before introducing water.

Sauna heaters have been designed to produce steam by adding water on the sauna rocks. The question is whether you want the humid hot temperature feeling or a dry hot heat feeling?  It is just a matter of choice.

When adding water to the rocks of the sauna be careful not to add too much at once and be sure to use a sauna ladle. The steam is very hot, and a steam burn can happen quickly to bare skin. You also do not want to pour too much water on a sauna heater that will result in the water cooling off the rocks quickly reducing the heat in the sauna. If you are adding water to a sauna heater, be sure to consider excess water and drainage of water that does not evaporate.

Water on a sauna heater is a matter of choice. However, one should mention that putting water on sauna heater may potentially reduce the life of the sauna element. This is typically why in commercial environments the owner's do not want you to put water on the sauna rocks.

Can I use oils on the stones in my sauna

Yes you can add oils to the water you are using to create the desired aroma. One of the additional benefits of traditional over infrared

Can I use my sauna outside

No – under no circumstance can the sauna be used outside. Saunas must be installed in an insulated building ie home or commercial premises.

Can I eat and drink in my sauna

No we do not recommend eating or drinking the sauna other than water for hydration.

Can I use this sauna in a commercial premises

These are primarily residential saunas. The sauna may withstand light commercial use due to our quality heaters being extremely robust however we cannot extend our warranty to commercial use due to the unsupervised/unaccountable nature that comes with commercial users.
