  • Rough-in Requirements - "The Best" Sauna Kit...

    • Framing Size - the sauna space must be framed (normally using 2"x4" studs at 16" centers) and insulated with R12 or R13 insulation. Example: A 5'x7' sauna room should measure 5'x7' (inside measurements). Sauna height should be 7' for optimum performance - except for very large sauna rooms.

    • Door Location - the wall dimensions on either side of the door need to be confirmed. The typical door rough opening for the popular #1 door is 26"x75".
      >>... Learn more - See Door Location in Floor Plans & Layouts.
    • Sauna Door Specs - the standard sauna door rough opening is 26"x75". The door always swings outwards either left-hung or right-hung. The hang of a door is defined by the location of the hinges when looking at the sauna door from the outside. For example, a right-hinged door (or right-hung door) has the hinges on the right if it opens toward you. Please specify left/right when ordering.

    • Sauna Floor Specs - Installing ceramic floor tiles with a 2"-3" vertical lip along the edge is the classiest finish of the floor. A floor drain is not needed. The alternative to a concrete floor is to apply a coat of concrete floor sealer or grey concrete floor paint or order the duckboard lay-down floor.

    • Sauna Wiring Specs - wiring to the sauna needs to be supplied by you or your electrician. >>... Learn more - Sauna Heater Wiring.
    • T&G Lengths for the Ceiling - the T&G ceiling boards are normally supplied in the shortest length for easier installation. The ceiling should be framed to accommodate the ceiling boards to this specification. If the ceiling framing is not the right direction, consider strapping with 1x2 or 1x3. or buy longer TG boards that can cost up to $250 more on some sizes of sauna rooms.
