Get to Know Us
What's in a NAME?
In Canada, Saunafin is well known as Finlandia Sauna & Steam. Since 1962, Finlandia has been pleased to serve customers in the Toronto area and across Canada. In order to avoid confusion with another firm in the USA with a similar name, we have established the Saunafin division for US sales. We are pledged to supply our American friends the same quality, care and customer service that our Canadian customers have come to expect and appreciate.
Saunafin is first and foremost a "brick and mortar" company. We are not an Internet invention or an on-line reseller. We manufacture 80% of the products we sell. We manufacture our own line of heaters and controls. We build our own doors. Our cedar comes directly from the West coast and is dried and custom milled to our specifications. Not only do we manufacture sauna kits, but we have also installed literally thousands of saunas in the Greater Toronto Area. Along with our many satisfied residential customers, leading builders and developers have used Saunafin extensively. Our saunas can be found in the Toronto Blue Jays clubhouse, Ottawa Senators locker room, Skydome Health Club, Casino Windsor, and the M Casino Resort and Palazzo Hotel Casino in Las Vegas. We are a specified supplier to the YMCA and Extreme Fitness. (See Installation List)

Sometimes though, jumping from page to page does not give
you the clearest picture. In our opinion, there is nothing
like having a catalog in your hands that is complete, comprehensive
and organized for you. Our catalog includes full color pictures,
pricing, heater specifications, sauna rough-in information
and more. We recognize that while you are interested in saunas
or steam baths, you may not be ready to purchase one tomorrow.
We want you to have our catalog in your file, so when the

Full Thickness Benches
sauna material kit benches are constructed only of clear 2
x 4 cedar bench tops with clear 2 x 4 bench
supports. Many others use only 1 x 4 material
for their bench tops and materials other than cedar for the
bench supports. Using only 2 x 4 material allows
for all bench construction to be done from the bottom. There
is enough 'meat' on the wood to screw from the support into
the underside of the bench top. As a result, there is no need
for countersinking fasteners with the accompanying unsightly
putty or dowel fillers.
Our Tongue and Groove Cedar
We use only full lengths. There will be no unsightly, cost-cutting seams anywhere in your sauna. Our clear saunas use Clear Grade 'A' and better Western red cedar. Our Knotty sauna kits utilize only Select Tight Knot material. All cedar is kiln-dried to 10 - 12%.
Apples are Apples and a Killowatt is a Killowatt
In our review of the literature, we have seen some claims regarding heater outputs that we find irresponsible. The general rule of thumb when sizing a heater is 1 Kilowatt (kW) for every 50 cubic feet. Do not be swayed by those who claim their heater is so efficient that the 4 kW is the equivalent of someone else's 6 kW. Given enough time, the smallest heater can heat a large room. Our goal is to heat the sauna to temperature within 20-30 minutes, not 2-3 hours.
We are in business, so we obviously want your money. But we do not want it at the cost of our commitment to customer service. We will make suggestions to improve your sauna and we will tell you what will and will not work. We will even tell you not to waste your money; if we think what you are planning is not feasible.
