8 Reasons Why A Barrel Sauna Is So Effective:
3) 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.
4) 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 seal that won't shatter.
5) 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.
6) REMARKABLY COMFORTABLE
Sit opposite another sauna bather with your back nicely cradles in the curvature of the sun wall with enough room for you neck to remain straight.
7) REQUIRES NO MAINTENANCE
Barrel saunas naturally shed water and, due to their structural integrity, they can handle a substantial snow load. The polymer support cradles let you put the barrel on any flat surface, and the western red cedar is naturally resistant to water and insects.
8) BEAUTIFUL ADDITION
Specially designed for outdoor use, a barrel sauna is a beautiful backdrop in your landscaping.
