Cozy, functional and high quality Sauna Barrel with eco friendly roof is perfect for a garden, a backyard or in a campsite or other scenic location. It both decorates the environment and provides bathing pleasures. Also a regular use of sauna has obvious health benefits. This simple design is highly effective, providing maximum usable space while minimizing excess cubic feet, which means the sauna will heat quickly and efficiently.
Layout. The diameter of the sauna barrel can be chosen from 1.90 m and 2.20 m, but in this model we apply a diameter of 1.9 m. This sauna barrel has 3 m long walls. It takes up a little bit less space than our bigger sauna barrels, and thus is ideal for smoler gardens or backyards.
There are 2 layout options for this sauna barrel*:
- with 0.6 terrace and 2 benches at the front, sauna room 2.22 m, 7 m3 (standard);
- without the terrace, 2.72 m, 8 m3 sauna room;
Additionally, there are various options of windows in the back and front walls available. One of the options is to have an entire back wall made from the glass. This glass is 10 mm thick, tempered, brown-toned and covered with a 100 micron protective film. There is a special safety fence between the glass wall and a sauna heater inside. Upon customer's request, we can install a wood-fired furnace or an electric heater in the barrel sauna.
Timber. Barrel sauna can be made of spruce or thermo wood. Thickness of sauna barrel walls is 38 mm or 58 mm (you can choose one of these two dimensions if the product comes from spruce wood). Thickness of a solid wood flooring is 18 mm.
By selecting your sauna barrel from thermowood cladding you ensure a long lifespan for the barrel and less maintenance time and cost to you. The spruce wood is yellowish white with no clear difference between the heartwood and sapwood. Spruce timber is an excellent material for load-bearing structures and exterior linings. Spruce timber is easily workable and its properties make it suitable for indoor use as well as.
Regardless of what kind of wood you choose for a product, sauna benches will be made of deciduous wood. Deciduous wood is most suitable for benches due to the fact that it does not release resins in hot sauna room.

It is very important to have a proper foundation for your Sauna Barrel. 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.
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.
