The Barrel Sauna at a Glance

DSC_5248The Barrel Sauna has been a staple product for Almost Heaven Saunas for nearly 40 years now and have played an integral role in earning us the attention and praise of sauna lovers across the country and around the world. Here’s what we believe we’re doing right…

Conscious Design

We first started crafting our signature barrel sauna several decades ago, developing a layout that was both uniquely attractive and exceptionally functional. The rounded sides of a barrel help circulate the heated air back down and into the main level of the room, meaning that the sauna heats fast and saves energy.

Furthermore, the Barrel Sauna is assembled using a ball-and-socket profile held in place by stainless steel bands and minimal fasteners. The significance of this configuration is that the lumber is allowed to expand and contract while maintaining a reliable seal. The entire unit is mounted on polymer support cradles that loft the undercarriage of the sauna and keep it from coming in direct contact with any moisture on the ground.

Over the years, we’ve developed the barrel sauna design to include our attractive Canopy Barrel Saunas and our spacious Grandview Barrel Saunas. At our factory in Greenbrier County, W.Va., our wonderful craftsmen carefully oversee all the lumber used and even partially assemble sections of the sauna to make final assembly as effortless as possible for the customer.

Superior Materials

Here at Almost Heaven Saunas, we work hard to provide a complete package characterized by strict attention to detail. Our standard Barrel Saunas are available in either clear or rustic Western cedar, a lumber that is specially chosen because of its natural resistance to mold and mildew.

Effortless Performance

All Almost Heaven Saunas come with an appropriately sized stainless steel heater, stones, bucket, ladle, and thermometer/hygrometer so that as soon as you’re finished with assembly, you’ll have everything you need to begin enjoying the authentic sauna experience right away.

Attention to Atmosphere

The authentic sauna experience is best typified by deep, unparalleled relaxation. Every detail plays a role in providing that kind of environment, like the soft, diffused glow of interior LED lighting, the intentional installation of a sturdy heater guard made from aromatic Western cedar, and the positioning of opposite-facing benches that encourages real conversation and interaction.

Whether you’re the kind of person who’s looking forward to escaping to your own private retreat, you’re enthusiastic about sharing the multifaceted health benefits of sauna bathing with those dear to you, or you’re a little bit of both at any given time, Almost Heaven Saunas has something for you – a sauna that offers the highest quality, performance, and value available!
