Superior Sauna Cedar Bench Stock

Red Cedar 2" × 6" Bench Stock

Superior Sauna Basswood Bench Stock

Basswood 2" × 6" Bench Stock

Sauna enthusiasts love our "stout benches" with double the thickness of most benches on the market and built to last a lifetime. Our benches are made with premium 1 3/4" × 5 1/2" clear grained basswood lumber or clear select 1 1/2" × 5 1/2" red cedar. Benches have soft, fully rounded edges for maximum comfort. Even in the hottest sauna, they are always cool to the touch. We select our bench boards specifically to be free of hot spots like knots or exposed fasteners. Standard wall-mounted benches are easily removed for sauna cleaning as only the rails are fastened to the wall. Bench spans of over 6 feet require pillar supports. Rubber foot pads are used any time a bench support comes in contact with the floor, to prevent moisture wicking into wood fibers. Several sizes of portable benches are also available or we can custom build to your specifications. Typical sauna bench dimensions are 18" or 24" deep by length of the longest wall. 18" benches are fine for sitting, 24" deep benches are best for having room to lay down. Red cedar is the true classic for a traditional steam sauna while basswood benches stay lighter longer compared to cedar.

Superior Sauna Cedar Flooring

Cedar Flooring Tile Snap Together

Easily snap together a steam or infrared sauna floor (duckboard) in minutes. These beautiful square tiles are made with the finest Western Red Cedar and utilize an easy snap-together plastic grid base. Any excess water flows through wood on plastic grids, then evaporates off of floor. Floor temperatures in saunas are always cooler, so cedar tiles with a plastic base are completely safe to use. The classic style can be set in conventional brick pattern or with all wood slats aligned in the same direction.

  • Actual coverage of each tile: 11" × 11"
  • Height of tile: 3/4"
Superior Sauna Foil Vapor Barrier

Aluminum Foil Vapor Barrier

One of the necessary components for traditional sauna room construction. Foil vapor barrier will protect the building structure by blocking moisture from getting inside walls. Staple foil vapor barrier behind T&G sauna wood paneling on walls and ceiling. It also adds 1R insulation efficiency by reflecting radiant heat back into sauna room. Sauna foil vapor barrier is also commonly used in walls near tub/shower for bath room remodeling. The foil barrier outlasts plastic vapor barriers which will deteriorate from heat and release gases (and no longer protect walls from moisture). Gain 1R of insulation and the reflective heat efficiency of aluminum foil radiating behind the paneling structure. This is the proper sauna foil vapor barrier made for new construction or remodeled saunas.

Superior Sauna Stainless Steel Nails

Stainless Steel Finishing Nails

Make sauna wood T&G paneling and trim installation a breeze and ensure your sauna walls will stay "streak free" for the life of the sauna. Other types of sauna nails will eventually corrode and leave streaks and stains on sauna wood. Choose from several different types and sizes of bonded nail packs to fit a variety of pneumatic finishing nail and brad nail guns. Available in 16 or 18 gauge in boxes of 500, 1000 or 2500.
