Sauna POD is a beautiful solution for the gardens with the “soft edges”. It looks nice and is different from the popular sauna cabins or sauna barrels. It can also be built next to the Camping POD and make your camping place look smooth and cozy. Sauna POD is divided into two zones: a relaxing room and a sauna room. In the relaxing room you can not only cool down after the bathing, but also put some things there and change.
Sauna Pod is made from a spruce wood. Upon customer’s request, we can install a wood-fired furnace or an electric heater in the sauna. Thickness of the Sauna pod walls is 38 mm; thickness of the solid wood flooring is 28 mm. A roof is covered with bitumen shingles of selected color: black, red or green. Sauna pod is 4 m long and 2.4 m wide. Overall height including the roof is 2.64 m.

It is very important to have a proper foundation for your Sauna Pod. Therefore we recommend making the foundation according to the sketches here.
First of all, foundation must be prepared according to the landscape and ground conditions. Consult a qualified builder or an engineer to prepare a proper foundation, which fits your location. Make sure to complete the site preparation and the foundation before unpacking and assembling the Sauna Pod.
USAGE. Saunas typically take 30-40 minutes to heat up. The recommended temperature is 80-90º C. The thermometer should be located at head level in the sauna. It should be located away from the heater or the door so it will not give a false reading.
Enjoy the many health benefits of relaxing heat in your own Sauna Barrel just remember that staying in the hot Sauna for long periods of time makes the body temperature rise, which may be dangerous. The recommended time inside a Sauna Barrel is from 10 to 15 minutes. Take a five-minute break and then repeat. Also you should keep safety instructions and keep away from the stove when it is hot.
Never throw water on the stones when there are people near the stove, because hot steam may burn their skin. Be very careful when moving in the Sauna, as the benches and floors may be slippery. Do not hang clothes to dry in the Sauna, as this may cause a risk of fire. Also check your body for any metal (jewelry and zippers, for example) in order to prevent it from burning your body when it quickly heats up in the facility. We strongly recommend shouldn’t use the Sauna to pregnant women and neither should young children.
MAINTENANCE. As wood is a natural material, it can change through time. Cracks of various sizes, changes of the color as well as a structure of the wood are not the errors, but a feature of a wood. Natural wood (not impregnated) becomes grayish after having been left untouched for a while. Later it can turn blue and get covered with the mold. Therefore, you should immediately impregnate the wood to protect the products.
We strongly recommend that you impregnate the door and windows with a wood impregnation agent both the inside and outside of them, because the doors and windows can become twisted otherwise. In general, we recommend consulting a specialist regarding the paints suitable for an unprocessed softwood and follow the manufacturers’ of paints instructions. Properly painting the Sauna Barrel will extend its lifetime. Besides that, we suggest you thoroughly inspecting the Barrel every six months and checking if it needs re-painting or else.
It’s NOT advisable to paint the sauna walls before assembling it – this is best done when the sauna has been already assembled and when the weather is fine. However, if you wish to paint some parts in different colors, this should be done before the sauna is assembled.
