The Charleston Barrel Sauna is designed to fit up to 4 people comfortably. It is the perfect backyard sauna for a family or two individuals who want to stretch out. The Charleston comes in rustic fir, rustic cedar, and clear cedar and is designed with a thick tempered glass door.
The Charleston is designed using a ball-and-socket profile that is held in place by sturdy stainless- steel bands and minimal fasteners. This allows the lumber staves to expand and contract to form a tight seal, and the unit sits on polymer support cradles that loft the sauna’s undercarriage off the ground. The Charleston is known for its efficiency, even distribution of heat, and visual appeal. By taking the front round section and setting it back into the sauna, we’ve created a visually appealing and useful outside sitting area. These outside benches are a great place to hold towels or drinks or to relax and cool off between sauna sessions. The Charleston stands apart from our other canopy barrel saunas due to its front–we designed a canopy that is 2 feet instead of the standard 1 foot. The extra space on the exterior of the sauna gives you more room to either rest in between sauna sessions or more space to store your sauna essentials.
The Charleston is designed using natural wood that is thick and insulating. The smooth, natural lumber options are rustic fir, rustic cedar, and clear cedar. We use only the highest quality stainless steel, tempered glass, and fasteners on all of our saunas. With the Charleston barrel, we promise you will be satisfied with the top quality. Along with all of our barrel saunas, the Charleston includes a standard LED light bar to give your sauna a soft accented glow.
The Charleston comes with a 6.0kw heater and sauna stones. It will heat to as much as 195F in under an hour. Sprinkle water on the hot sauna stones for a rejuvenating burst of steam. This can be repeated multiple times throughout the sauna session as a way to add humidity to your dry sauna. With the convenient outside benches, it is easy to take cooling breaks. When in the sauna, always remember to stay hydrated! If you’re looking for a more traditional sauna experience, browse our various sauna bucket and ladle options and other sauna accessories.
Paradise in your own backyard, that is what you will get with the Charleston Barrel Sauna. After a long day, come home to your very own warm, relaxing, and peaceful sauna. The health benefits alone are worth the hype-skin that glows, better circulation, an increased heart rate that gives you a mini workout while you sit and relax. Amp up the atmosphere by adding a few drops of essential oil to your sauna bucket. Then you can be surrounded by calming lavender or rejuvenating eucalyptus and create your perfect atmosphere.
Customize your sauna and make it your own with a variety of design options- bench styles, lumber preference, door designs, and a rear vista window.
