Things to Consider Before Building a Sauna 

In the design phase, these are the things to consider before initiating the construction work:

Benches and lounges must be designed with respect to the size requirements. Their height and width must accommodate the intended use. Importance must be placed on sauna insulation and ventilation. Sauna door must be an outward-opening door. 

First, the floor and walls must be coated with plaster. Ceramic material will be used for the floor of a sauna keeping the cleaning of the room in mind and a drain is placed. Ventilation system is set with two openings on the walls, one behind the heater and the other on the ceiling, in order to ensure air circulation. A silicon lighting cable is installed for the sauna lighting using a switch placed on the outside of the sauna. After the infrastructure is completed, the wooden parts of the sauna are placed. Panels used in a sauna are generally made of spruce or pine trees. This will be followed by sauna insulation. 

Glass wool insulation with aluminium foil is preferred for sauna insulation. The insulation material must be of a quality resistant to temperatures up to 150 °C. The thickness of this aluminium material, on the other hand, is 0.03mm. After the insulation, the space is adorned with wooden elements. Wooden products must be attached to each other in an interlocking or spring-fit system. After these steps thee sauna cabin will be ready for use and sauna benches and backrests are placed.

Sauna Heater & Sauna Door

The use of lower-than-necessary capacity heaters will lead to delays in heating and increased energy consumption.
