Barrel Saunas

View as

Did you know that regularly spending time in a sauna can have a positive effect on many areas of your health and wellbeing?  Some of the benefits include:

  • Improved circulation - the hot environment raises your heart rate which in turn expands blood vessels, resulting in lowered blood pressure
  • Enhanced immune system - your core body temperature increases due to the heat, tricking it into thinking you have a fever, boosting production of white blood cells as a result
  • Relief from respiratory conditions such as asthma and bronchitis - simply throw some water on the heated stones and deeply breathe in the steam 
  • Pain relief for aching joints and muscles - immersion in the pocket of hot air can provide welcome relief from such conditions
  • Can aid weight management - sitting in the heat raises your heart rate and your metabolism, prompting your body to burn more calories
  • Stress relief
  • Healthy skin - time spent in a sauna helps flush out toxins and bacteria, helping improve skin tone, elasticity and appearance

8 Reasons Why A Barrel Sauna Is So Effective

Heats Quickly

With less unused space (imagine a circle inside a square), the barrel design lets the heater do its job faster and more efficiently.

Distributes Heat

In a square sauna, the heat gets trapped at the ceiling. In a barrel sauna, the heat is pushed back down the curved sides and into the sauna as new heat rises from the heater.

Saves Energy

Because there is less unused airspace to heat, less energy is required to heat the room. The thick staves are excellent insulators, and the exterior of the sauna will remain cool to the touch.

Accommodates Temperature Flux

The ball-and-socket assembly of a barrel sauna lets the wood expand and contract within the steel bands, creating a tight, secure fit that won’t shatter.

Structurally Sound

Built with solid wood staves, the structural integrity of a barrel sauna withstands even the harshest outdoor environment. The notched staves create a tight, secure fit that will last a lifetime without the excessive use of fasteners.

Remarkably Comfortable

Sit opposite another sauna bather with your back nicely cradled in the curvature of the sauna wall with enough room for your neck to remain straight.

Requires No Maintenance

Barrel saunas naturally shed water and, due to their structural integrity, can handle a substantial snow load. The polymer support cradles lets you put the barrel on any surface, and the Western Red Cedar is naturally resistant to water and insects.

Beautiful Addition

Specially designed for outdoor use, a barrel sauna is a beautiful backdrop in your landscaping.
