Product Description

Sit back, relax and take in the soothing dry heat of the Oceanic Finnish Sauna. One of our most popular saunas, it comes as a free-standing timber cabin that goes inside your home. This ready-to-go style is handmade to order in our UK factory, but if you can’t find the exact size you’re looking for we can modify an existing model to fit. Once you’ve chosen your sauna, it will be delivered flat-packed to your door, ready to be installed. 

What is a Finnish sauna?

A Finnish sauna is a wooden cabin that is warmed up by a heater with rocks to an average temperature between 70°C and 90°C, with a maximum of 110°C. You can add water to the rocks for a short burst of steam that will leave your skin feeling hot, but the high air temperature usually stays above dewpoint (the point at which air becomes humid) so it remains dry. 

The cabin comes with a timber floor mat, benches, backrest, electric heater with digital controls, lighting and accessory pack as standard. 

How do you use it? 

A Finnish sauna provides the perfect place to unwind. You simply turn it on and either sit or lie down on the benches that are installed inside (depending on which sauna size you have) and allow yourself to be absorbed in the heat. You can choose your preferred temperature level and decide how much time you spend in there – but remember that the upper level will be hotter because heat rises. If you’re new to the experience, we recommend starting lower and slowly increasing. 

Most people will sit inside for about 15 minutes before having a cold shower, resting for 30 minutes, and then repeating the same pattern. You can do this two or three times, so that an average session lasts about two hours.

The health benefits

Research shows that there are some great health benefits associated with using saunas. Raising the body temperature and heat exposure has been shown to reduce blood pressure, cardiac illnesses and stress. As well as that, there’s also evidence that it benefits the respiratory systemmuscle and bone masschronic illnesses and can help you live longer

If you are intending to use a sauna for a health condition, we recommend you consult your GP first. Please also be mindful that there are some risks associated with using a sauna, so you should make sure to stay hydrated and avoid drinking alcohol. 

Not quite right for you? Choose a different product

We have lots of different styles of saunas and steam rooms. If you don’t think the Oceanic Finnish Sauna is the right choice, find something else to suit you: 

  • Oceanic Commercial Sauna for a heavy duty Finnish sauna 
  • Oceanic Outdoor Sauna to use outside 
  • Oceanic Infrared Sauna for people who prefer a lower air temperature 
  • Oceanic Saunarium if you want to add a steam generator to your sauna
  • Oceanic Steam Rooms for a more humid experience 

Setting up your sauna 

All of our saunas come flat-packed with assembly instructions. Unless you’re a dab hand at DIY, we suggest you choose a local fitter or carpenter to install it. If you can’t find anyone local, we can recommend someone who is familiar with our products. 

The wall and ceiling panels are pre-constructed, but the benches, backrest and floor mats will need to be assembled before they go in. For a two-person sauna, it will typically take around one day to install; anything larger will take longer.

All our Finnish sauna heaters must be hardwired to the mains with an all-pole isolator switch. Our domestic sauna heaters can be wired with a single-phase or three-phase connection. The electrical connection to the heater must be carried out by a qualified electrician.

The installation checklist

Before you think about purchasing one of our saunas, you need to check that you can provide the following things: 

  • A level, washable floor, preferably stone, ceramic or concrete
  • 25mm air gap all around the cabin to allow air to circulate
  • Minimum ceiling height 2,000mm
  • A suitable power supply: an isolated 230V single phase or 400V three phase supply to the correct standard, installed by a qualified electrician
  • There must be space for the door of the cabin to open outward, from either a left or right hinge. In restricted areas it’s possible to assemble the sauna cabin from the inside.

Room panel layout 

Start by planning the layout for your sauna. The room layout is made up of a number of panels, which sit under the timber cladding. The standard wall panel size is 615mm wide x 1,895mm tall x 50mm thick. A half panel is 307mm wide x 1,895mm tall x 50mm thick. Choose from a wide range of predetermined sizes. For example, our D2020 model is two full panels deep by two full panels wide. All the wall and ceiling panels are built in our factory and are fully insulated. 

If you can’t find the right size, we can modify panels for a fee. Just get in touch with our sales department and we can make any of our custom sizes smaller to suit your dimensions. 

See our full list of shapes and sizes. 

Timber cladding

There are two types of timber that can be used to line the inside and the outside areas on show. We fix the timber to the panel frame so that you can’t see the nails, giving it a smooth, clean finish. 

Scandinavian spruce

Spruce is an ideal material for saunas because it has low heat absorption and a low resin content. In the northern areas of Scandinavia where it’s cooler, the trees are pruned and thinned and they grow slowly to provide strong, straight timbers. The timber is kiln dried in the country of origin, then checked for quality before being assembled into a sauna cabin. We only purchase top-grade material that is free from dead knots, splits and shakes.

Canadian hemlock - See our range of Vision Saunas 

Western Canadian hemlock is another excellent timber for saunas. It doesn’t warp even when exposed to extreme conditions, it’s knot and resin free, very hard and strong and has an attractive straight grain. Hemlock ranges in colour from warm reds to browns, which combine to create a beautiful appearance. This timber is typically around twice the cost of Scandinavian spruce so it will affect the final price of your sauna. The frame of any glass or door panels will also be made from Hemlock if selected.

Bench kit

Our bench kits come with benches, backrests and floor mats. 

Bench timber

You can choose from either spruce or knot-free abachi timber for the benches, backrests and floor mats. Abachi timber is less dense and cooler to the touch, so you don’t need a towel when you sit on it, but it is typically around twice the price of spruce.

Glass panel layout

Glass panels can be added to the sauna to let in more natural light, help you see in and make a small area feel more spacious. We can add in glass panels in three different ways:

  • Layout A - Timber on all sides with a glass door
  • Layout B - Front wall in glass with the rest in timber 
  • Layout C - Front and side wall in glass with the remaining rear and side wall in timber

Sauna heater

The Oceanic Finnish Sauna is supplied with a Finnish-style electric sauna heater with sauna rocks. You can add water to the rocks if you want but this is primarily a dry sauna. If you want to increase the humidity, there’s an option to add a small steam generator and convert the sauna into a saunarium. A heater guard and rocks are supplied with all heaters as standard.

For most domestic Finnish saunas (up to and including 6kw) we provide an Oceanic wall-mounted Finnish sauna heater with built-in digital controls. This heater is the simplest to install, requiring one power cable to the heater. 

For some saunas, you can choose the Apollo heater that stands on the floor and has more rocks. It requires less maintenance and is more efficient. You can also add a steamer attachment which is controlled through our saunarium control system to provide more humidity. 

External controls

If you would like an external keypad to control the sauna, you can upgrade. There are two keypads available: the standard Oval keypad and our touchscreen OSX keypad. All heaters over 6kw require external controls.

The Oval keypad allows you to digitally program the start time, working time and target temperature for the sauna. You can also add up to two lighting circuits. The keypad also displays diagnostic information, such as if the sauna overheats. The OSX keypad has increased functionality and is simpler to use and includes a child-lock function.

Lighting

To brighten up your sauna, you can opt for a variety of lighting options, which include: 

  • Low-voltage downlights, which are provided as standard. These can either be controlled via an external control system or wired into a nearby wall switch
  • Optional linear LED accent lighting kit available in either warm white or  RGB colour change variant. Required to backlight backrests and bench infills
  • Optional wall lamp and shade
  • Optional fibre optic ceiling lighting with changing colours and twinkle effects

Timber protection 

Saunas are a safe, relaxing space, which is why our saunas are typically made from untreated timber so as not to release any chemicals in the air. If you want to change the colour of the timber on the inside or outside, you can use our specially manufactured sauna wax which won’t produce any toxins. We also have a bench protector to make it easier to clean. Saunas with a steam unit included will be supplied with a special coating for the timber to prevent water absoption.

Speakers 

Want to add in a few more gadgets? If you fancy listening to some music while you kick back, we can provide bluetooth speakers or heat-proof IP-rated speakers that can be fitted into the ceiling panels. 

Accessories 

A full set of accessories are included with each sauna, but there’s also the option of upgrading to the designer Loly sauna accessory pack. This includes a deluxe bucket, ladle, sand timer and thermometer or hygrometer.

Electrical info

  • Sauna heaters do not operate from a 3 pin plug, they require hard wiring via an isolator switch using a high-temperature silicone rubber cable (not included) to BSEN 6141. 
  • Built-in control heaters require three core silicon bound heat proof cables, 4m length is supplied with the heater. Longer lengths can be ordered as an extra.
  • Heaters with external controls require five core silicon bound heat proof cables, a 4m length of cable for wiring onto the ceiling is supplied.  
  • Each timber panel has an internal gully that allows the wire to be hidden inside the panel if required.
  • For heaters with built-in controls the lights must also be controlled separately.
  • Wall lights must be wired with a silicon bound heat proof cable. Silicon bound cables are available to purchase from our sauna accessories page. 
  • For heaters with external controls, the control box will supply power to the heater, keypad, lights and temperature sensor. The control box is typically positioned on the roof of the cabin if there is sufficient headroom (minimum height 2.2m). For lower ceiling height mount the control box onto a nearby wall, longer lengths of five core cable is available if required.
  • The cost to run an average sauna cabin with a 4.5kw heater is £1.26 per hour. (using an average unit cost of 28p per kWh). Please check with your service provider for exact unit costs.

Installation need-to-knows

We recommend a carpenter or joiner assembles the sauna. Installation for an average-size sauna takes around one to two days, larger and commercial models may take two or more days. Please bear in mind that you’ll need the following: 

  • A level, washable floor, preferably vinyl, stone, ceramic or concrete
  • 25mm air gap all around the cabin to allow air to circulate
  • All measurements are external measurements and are + or - 10mm
  • A suitable power supply: an isolated 230V single phase supply to the correct standard installed by a qualified electrician
  • In restricted areas it’s possible to assemble the sauna cabin from the inside
  • The door of the cabin can be hinged left or right but must open outward
  • A qualified electrician must be used for the installation of the sauna heater.
  • This sauna cabin can’t be made smaller. For a bespoke model, please get in touch with our sales team.
