What wood is best for my sauna?
We provide a great selection of wood, to best suit your needs:
Aspen – wood is white and soft, but fairly strong, and has low flammability
Alder – The wood is rather soft, however, and care must be taken to avoid denting it in some applications. European alder has excellent gluing, staining, and finishing properties
Spruce – The spruce or fir is sometimes called “bread tree of Central European forestry”, a title that already gives an indication of the great importance of this widespread wood, with very special
properties. In the Alps and low mountain ranges, the spruce is by far the most common tree.
Thermo aspen – Thermally heat-treated aspen is as good as other species of wood. It is long-lasting and has a nice smell. Resulting in a pure, environmentally friendly, solid wood which is produced
with a longer life expectancy.
Thermo spruce – Thermal modification gives spruce excellent weather resistance and durability, as well as a naturally beautiful light-golden tone.
Cedar – Cedar sauna woods are strong, lightweight and generally do not warp or shrink over time. Red cedar provides a more comfortable and cooler sauna surface to sit and lean on, compared to
more dense sauna woods. Cedar sauna wood naturally repels many bacteria, fungi and insects. All Cedar sauna woods have an aromatic scent, but the heartwood of Red Cedar trees has the strongest aroma and is popular in many American traditional saunas.
What is the difference between your heaters and which is best for me?
Infrared directly heats your body through radiative heat, opposed to heating the air around it. Meaning your infrared sauna can be heated to a lower temperature than a traditional sauna while still providing the same effect.
