Collection: Outdoor Saunas

Outdoor Sauna Buying Guide 2021

So you're looking at purchasing your first outdoor sauna. The great thing about outdoor saunas is that they bring a higher level of luxury. In addition to being larger, they can also come as a pre-fab saunas, or in the case our outdoor saunas, will be assembled for you. The most common types of outdoor saunas are either barrel saunas or cabin saunas, both of which fall under the category of pre-fab saunas.

Outdoor Sauna Wood

An outdoor sauna will typically be made from a few different types of wood. For starters, they all include a wood stove and solid wood rails. Solid wood rails will typically be made from 1-5/8″ nordic spruce wood or 1-3/8″ thick Canadian Hemlock wood, otherwise known as 1-3/8″ thick wood.

  • 1-5/8″ nordic spruce wood
  • 1-3/8″ thick Canadian Hemlock wood
  • 1-3/8″ thick wood

1-5/8″ nordic spruce wood is picked for it's aesthetic pleasure and makes a great material for solid wood rails. Overall, you'll find most outdoor sauna manufacturers will choose to use 1-5/8″ nordic spruce wood for their solid wood rails.

Pre Built Sauna Heating

Most outdoor saunas will come with a heating foot pad and portable chair as well as infrared heating panels for rapid heating. The heating foot pad and portable chair are really just accessories and not mandatory, but will improve your outdoor sauna experience. Rapid heating from the infrared heating panels will also prove quite useful. At Supreme Saunas, we do not sell a combo of a Heating Foot Pad and Portable Chair and thus those must be purchased separately from a Heating Foot Pad and Portable Chair vendor.

Pre Built Sauna Glass

Tinted glass and double pane glass are common requests for an outdoor sauna. All outdoor saunas use tinted glass to give you the privacy that you need. Without tinted glass, an outdoor sauna would be a little unnerving. In addition to tinted glass, the double pane glass will add the extra layer of privacy.

Outdoor Sauna Roof

Most people like for a few design features when it comes to roofs. The most requested design features include adjustable roof vents and a Finlandia Skylight roof. Additional requested features include a cedar shake roof. The adjustable roof vents help let in fresh air when needed

Home Sauna Wall Preference and Selection

Terms:

  • 1-1/2" thick walls
  • exterior side walls
  • frame walls
  • pre-assembled wall sections

Outdoor saunas come with all sorts of walls, from exterior side walls, to frame walls, to pre-assembled wall sections, to 1-1/2" thick walls. As long as they're aesthetically pleasing to you, then it won't matter too much because pre-fab saunas tend to be assembled for you.

Outdoor Sauna Price

An outdoor sauna can easily come at an affordable price. Normal prices can be anywhere from $5,000 - $7,000 but through Supreme Saunas, those numbers are brought down to $3,000 - $5,500. Pricing depends on which feature you're looking for and the size of the outdoor sauna.

Home Sauna Construction

Instead of building the outdoor Sauna yourself, it will be a pre-fab sauna delivered to you will just require the outdoor space to fit it. Unfortunately, Supreme Saunas does not work with 4-person Construction sauna projects, or 6-person Construction projects.

Why Not Buy a Home Sauna Amazon?


Although you could try and buy from Amazon, you typically won't get the best prices.

Health Benefits of Sauna

The health benefits of outdoor saunas went mainstream when Dr. Rhonda Patrick appeared on the Joe Rogan experience for the second time. While we could send you the direct scientific research, Dr. Rhonda has done a great job of synthesizing the information in this article titled "Sauna".

Heat Shock Proteins

Heat shock proteins (HSP) are available throughout the body and are important in a wide range of functions. Outdoor saunas increase the production of HSPs which has shown to boost immune systems, prevent neurodegenerative diseases, and increases the body's ability to repair cells. Outdoor sauna sessions are shown to increase the body's production of Heat Shock Proteins.

Nrf2

Nrf2 regulates the expression of genes with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and cytoprotective functions. The most important factor here: anti-inflammatory. Few people know this, but inflammation is the root of many of today's major diseases, including depression.

Nrf2 is actually what is responsible for upregulating the production of Heart Shock Proteins. Outdoor sauna sessions are shown to trigger Nrf2 transcription.
