Prefab saunas are ideal for those not planning a major renovation, but still want to have a beautiful sauna in their home. And for those looking for portability or something they can do quickly themselves. Assembles in a few hours with a few tools most everyone has around the house. You will still need a licensed electrician to supply the power and connect the sauna heater.

Prefab vs. Material Kit

PREFAB SAUNAS
(Also known as Pre-Built Saunas)

  • These saunas are pre-fabricated (like the name suggests). 
  • They can be assembled in 4-8 hours.
  • With Pre-Fab saunas there is no additional framing or insulation. The walls are self-supporting.
  • Everything is designed for quick assembly without specialized tools.
  • All our outdoor saunas (as well as our indoor Cabin and Vision models) are pre-fab.

SAUNA KITS 
(Also commonly referred to as Sauna Material Packages, Sauna Liner Kits, Do-It-Yourself Sauna Kits)

  • This refers to a built-in sauna.  The Sauna material kit is the inside "skin" of the sauna.
  • You or your contractor build the frame walls, insulate and finish the exterior.
  • We provide kits that consist of inside materials such as a door, cedar lining, molding, benches, a heater, a vapour barrier, and more.
  • You will trim the boards and nail them to the walls & ceiling.
  • You will assemble and install the benches, hang the door, etc.
  • Kits are installed permanently into a home (or club) during renovation or new construction.
  • The installed kit can blend in to home decor and can be customized in to any shape or size.
  • Sauna kits are more popular than pre-fab saunas

 

WHICH IS BEST FOR YOU?

PREFAB

  • It's portable.  While we would not recommend moving it on a regular basis, it can be dismantled and re-assembled elsewhere.  If you are renting your home, this may be a better solution.
  • If you can't build a sauna yourself and can't get someone to build one, then a prefab is a viable option.
  • Perhaps you already have a finished basement and you do not want to deal with the mess of a full construction project.
  • Sometimes renovators do not want to "do" a sauna for whatever reason.  In such cases we often see a pre-fab sauna and then the renovator drywalls around it so it appears built in.
  • If you are looking for outdoor, there is a larger selection of styles and sizes of stand-alone saunas to choose from.

 

MATERIAL KIT

  • Material kits are available much faster than pre-fab saunas; generally, 2-3 weeks.
  • If you are doing renovations, a material kit allows the sauna to be incorporated as part of the house finishes.  It is not a stand-alone structure set off from the rest of the home. 
  • There are some limitations with a pre-fab structure in terms of size and shape.  With a built-in sauna kit, you can build virtually any size or shape sauna.
  • For outdoor, you can build or purchase your own outdoors shed or cabana and install a material kit inside.

See below Assembly Video:

Cabin Pre-Fab Saunas (2x6 log style)

 

  • Cabin Pre-Fab saunas are manufactured in Canada.
  • Constructed of solid  2x6 tongue and groove Clear Western Red Cedar "logs" with notch corners and threaded rod system for secure assembly.
  • Benches are pre-assembled.
  • Standard heater is the Saaku Sauna CP model with control built into the front base of the heater.
  • Sauna Door with full-length single pane tempered window (15" x 60").
  • Cedar floor in walking area only (not under benches).
  • It is important to remember that a prefab sauna is being built in another room.  You have to plan and allow for clearances required.
  • Outside height is 82-1/8". Due to the assembly process, you need a minimum of 85" for assembly. (we suggest 90" to be safe).
    Some height adjustment is possible when ordering.
    Sometimes people will assemble sauna and slide it into an area of lower height. If you have a height limitation, speak to us and we can review options.
  • Pre-fab saunas are outside dimensions. Add 2" for ceiling overhang. (5' x 6' = 64" x 76"). (Keep in mind when locating the sauna in a corner)
    (Note: We also offer a version without the overhang. Contact us to discuss this option).

     
Wiring tips for Cabin saunas

  • There is no wall cavity so all wiring is on the surface. Cabin saunas include a heater with built-in control. 240v wire comes directly to the heater through the wall (hole not pre-drilled). If you select one of the Optional Tylo heaters with separate control, we provide a channeled trim to mount control and conceal wire.
  • If light included: We recommend the new wireless light bulbs that come with their own low profile wireless light switch. You can mount the light on the ceiling or hidden wall, so the wire is not visible. You then "stick" the light switch on the front exterior wall of the sauna.
    You can also install a standard light switch in an adjoining wall next to the sauna, conceal wire in the wall and come down into the sauna from a blind side.
  • Use a pancake electrical box for the light.  It can be mounted inside the sauna and sauna fixture will cover it.

Selecting your Pre-Fab Sauna Heater (Wiring Considerations)

 

In general, heaters with built-in controls are simpler to install in pre-fab saunas. This is because the supply wire goes directly to the heater. You do not have to route the wire to a separate control. 
As a result the Saaku Sauna CP and Tylo Sense Sport are the obvious choices.

      

 

 

Having said that, you are not limited to a built-in control models.
Some prefer separate controls for the convenience or for the features that are only available with certain models
The Tylo Plus and Tylo Combi are avaialble with the Pure or Elite (wi-fi) control
The "steaming" Tylo Combi only comes with a separate control
When opting for an separate control model with a pre-fab sauna, the control is usually installed inside the sauna. We include extra trim to conceal the wire.
NOTE: When installing a Tylo control inside sauna, the control must be at least 12" away from the heater and no more than 36" above the floor.

            

 

All of our outdoor pre-fab saunas are also available with wood burning saunas heater.
The outside feed wood stove is manufactured specially for our saunas.
You may aslo select the inside feed Harvia M3 with glass door to view the fire
