The foundation of an outdoor sauna is a well-insulated structure. In addition to large wooden surfaces, it is also necessary to carefully add smaller round, oval, or square segments of the sauna, called staves, which form the shape of the sauna. There are two methods for their production.
The first method involves making the staves from thinner material, approximately 28-35 mm thick, and supporting them from the inside with counter-laths (boards running from bottom to top). This method has its advantages - barrel saunas are much lighter, and handling them during construction is simpler.
In the second method, which we use in sauna production, the staves have the same thickness as the sauna's shell, which is 42 mm. This technology is more demanding in terms of material quantity and construction skills, but it pays off. Saunas without counter-laths have a cleaner design and are more beautiful. The more complex construction of the sauna is reflected in its quality and lifespan.
We also fix each wall segment to the stave, which slightly prolongs the construction process, but the benefits it brings are undeniable. We also ensure careful fastening of individual sauna parts in such a way that the screws are not visible. Visible screws are not only unsightly but are also exposed to weather conditions and can rust over time, potentially damaging the wood itself.
All our efforts would be in vain if we didn't use high-quality Nordic wood. Cedar is very strong, and the wood is less prone to splitting and holds better after screwing.
The result of our work and years of proven technology is a longer lifespan. The outdoor sauna then exudes simple beauty and functionality.
