Our claim to fame is the cooperage design of our quality Barrel Saunas, but our red cedar sauna designs provide a very practical function as well. Everyone knows that heat rises, and that is why it is hotter at the ceiling of a sauna than at the floor. However, the radius design of a barrel sauna forces the heat back down, causing airflow in the sauna and increasing the temperature of the lower parts of the sauna.
The nearby illustration demonstrates this very well, and while a sauna will always be hotter at the top, an Almost Heaven Barrel Sauna will cause the lower parts of the sauna to be hotter than a conventional sauna design. Additionally, since there is less unused air space in the sauna, there is no wasted heat, thereby causing the sauna to function more efficiently.
Of course, the design of our saunas is only one advantage of many. The quality of Almost Heaven Saunas is legendary, and for good reason. We utilize only the highest quality materials, from our western Canadian red cedar to our stainless steel hardware and accents. Each of our saunas are hand-crafted by professional woodworkers, and our heaters are high output, high quality units that heat the room hot and fast.
If you compare the clear red cedar lumber of an Almost Heaven Sauna to others in the industry, you will see a marked difference. Not only is our lumber free of knots, the grain is consistent, the color beautiful, and the texture soft to the touch. A sauna is “all about the wood,” and an Almost Heaven Sauna incorporates the best lumber available. Plus, all of our lumber is harvested from managed forests, insuring the environmentally friendly nature of our business!
