Frequently asked questions
Are dry saunas good for your health?
Much the same as a traditional sauna, a dry sauna offers a myriad of health benefits. This covers rheumatic conditions such as fibromyalgia and arthritis. What’s more, using a dry sauna regularly can also benefit those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), chronic fatigue and allergic rhinitis.
Additionally, the usual benefits to skin conditions such as psoriasis that you get in a traditional wet sauna are also found. Notably, if you exercise regularly you may also see performance benefits.
Can you supply your custom dry sauna as a DIY kit?
Almost all our bespoke sauna range can be supplied as a DIY sauna kit. What this entails is us designing and constructing the custom sauna to your specifications and then sending the components as a kit. We will then follow up with support to ensure the final installation goes according to plan.
How long should I stay in a dry sauna room?
Whilst there is no exact length you should stay in a sauna, we would expect you to stay in a hot, dry sauna for no longer than 15 minutes. As you’ll appreciate, the longer you are in a hot environment the more at risk you become from dehydration and any other heat related conditions.
Which type of wood is best a dry sauna construction?
There is no particular type of wood best suited to a dry sauna. If your bespoke design uses a certain wood and we do not think it is the best choice we’ll let you know and suggest a suitable replacement. Constructing a dry sauna is much the same as a regular bespoke sauna.
