Thermo wood barrel sauna room | 4 persons
This thermowood barrel Sauna room will be a perfect getaway from the outside rush, even if it is placed in your backyard. As a larger version of a barrel sauna, this will be a perfect fit for 4-6 people. Whether it’s your family, your best friends or colleagues – we are sure you will have your best time. Thanks to the extra space for changing room, you will enjoy the highest level of comfort.
Take your time and get ready for your perfect sauna ritual. Now our barrel sauna has thicker walls and better stability thanks to the 42 mm Nordic Thermo Spruce. Thermowood has lighter weight of the material comparing to traditionally treated wood, as well as structural advantages makes it easier to transport and install.
Thermowood is created by heat treating Scandinavian softwood to temperatures ranging from 180 – 230° in special chamber kilns for up to 96 hours. Steam is used as a protective gas and helps to prevent the wood from splitting and becoming damaged during treatment.
Thermowood’s Characteristics & Qualities
This process causes chemical and structural changes to occur within the timber, which therefore alters some of its characteristics and qualities. Some of the characteristics and qualities that make Thermowood such a popular specie includes:
Dimensionally Stable – The intensive heat the wood is exposed to during its production dries out deep into the core, causing all moisture and resin to be removed from the timber. Thermowood therefore doesn’t react to changes in humidity as drastically as untreated wood (the risk of swelling, cracking and shrinkage is decreased), allowing it to retain its shape far better. The wood also doesn’t secrete sap or resin even in high temperatures.
Environemntally Friendly – The softwood used to produce Thermowood originates from well-managed, PEFC-certified forests, and as no chemicals or foreign substances are involved during its production, Thermowood is an environmentally friendly material produced by using only natural methods.
Resistance to Rot and Fungi – Due to the heating process breaking down hemicellulose, the wood doesn’t contain the appropriate nutrients to allow rot and fungi to grow and develop.
Increased Longevity – When wood is treated with heat, its average life span is prolonged meaning your sauna will last a lifetime!
Improved Insulation – Wood that has been heat treated is much more porous than untreated wood, vastly improving its insulating properties.
ON-SITE ASSEMBLY PROCESS
All our sauna kits are designed with the DIY customer in mind. Most cedar barrel saunas can be assembled by two people with basic handyperson skills in 3-4 hours. Our thermowood barrel saunas have a more complex assembly process due to the full glass front window and stadium steading. These saunas can certainly be assembled by a non-professional, however, the level of DIY skill required is higher and the woodworking involved is more complex. As a result, the build time for thermowood saunas is longer and customers without DIY experience may struggle at some points during the build.
