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 stabilizes 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 want to make it easy as possible for you to get started so we offer a pre-cut option for no additional charge. It can quicken your paneling install process but you must make sure your framing measurements are precise along with door and window rough openings. We will provide detailed plans and framing instructions. If you have any questions please contact us, our design consultants will be happy to assist you. A sauna is a lifelong benefit and we want you to be happy with the experience for many years to come.
