Custom Sauna Kits

Client Custom Sauna Kit 

Relax, soothe sore muscles, joints and let stress fade away in your very own sauna with our sauna room kit. Pour water over sauna heater rocks for traditional finnish steam sauna. Select from the most popular sauna wood paneling types, white aspen or western red cedar. Sauna room kits are designed for residential home saunas and commercial saunas (gyms, hotels, military fitness centers and more). We have studied saunas all over the world to perfect the Superior Sauna. Talented architects were involved in the designs to maintain a balance of tradition and efficiency.

A Custom Sauna Kit is a permanent installation into a pre-framed and insulated commercial or residential room. The kit includes all of the sauna room interior parts designed to fit into the rough opening (length x width x height, stud to stud) of your sauna space. In many cases, any room in a house can be converted to a home sauna (recommended at least 4' x 4'). Custom Cut Home Sauna Kits are a great pricing alternative to modular indoor or outdoor saunas, especially for do-it-yourself home owners.

Traditional Versus Infrared Sauna - Comparison and Contrast

Paneling and Trim Options

In a typical traditional sauna, the walls are made of tongue and groove wood paneling. Each of our tongue and groove boards starts out as a 1" x 5" or 1" x 4" board that's milled to perfection. Our paneling is kiln dried to 6-8% moisture which stabalizes the woods and reducing warping and shrinking of the boards once their properly installed in a sauna. Tongue and groove paneling can be installed either horizontally or vertically. We offer several types of paneling with differing looks and various benefits.

Western Red Cedar Sauna Paneling

Western Red Cedar
Clear 1/2" or 11/16"

White Aspen Sauna Paneling

White Aspen
Clear, Non-Allergenic 3/4"

Nordic Spruce Sauna Paneling

Nordic Spruce
Rustic Look 9/16"

Sauna Heater Electric or Woodburning

The sauna heater is the heart of the traditional Finnish steam sauna, providing comforting heat and ample steam when pouring water on the sauna rocks. All of our sauna heaters can be used dry or for traditional steam sauna, just pour a ladle of water every 3 to 5 minutes to produce steam and bring the humidity level to your preference. Eucalyptus sauna oil can be diluted in sauna water bucket for a refreshing vaporized scent to help relieve cold / illness symptoms.

Electric versus woodburning is a matter of personal preference or location. Some prefer the tradition and heat of a woodburning stove while others want the ease and convience of an electric sauna heater. If your building a sauna in a remote area or off the grid the wood burning stove is your best option.

Sauna Benches

Commercial quality meets elegance with our stout sauna benches available in clear red cedar or clear white basswood. For most sauna designs, wall mounted benches are on rails and easily remove for cleaning or adjustment. Bench skirting (or valance) is a popular add-on option for custom saunas. Portable sauna benches are great for guest seating as well as many other uses other than sauna.

We manufacture elegant, commercial strength sauna benches that will last a lifetime. Our quality benches are soft and cool to the touch without knots or exposed fasteners to cause discomfort. Rubber foot pads are used any time a bench support comes in contact with the floor, to prevent moisture wicking into wood fibers.
