POD OUTDOOR SAUNA BY DUNDALK LEISURE CRAFT
Dundalk Leisure Craft Pod saunas are highly versatile, and can be configured in all kinds of ways to suit different needs and environments.
We've built this product configurator so that you can select anything and will always get a fully functioning sauna. We don't have "impossible combinations" or chances to select "half saunas". You don't need to be a sauna expert to build your perfect sauna package with this tool, so feel free to play around with all the choices offered!
In order to ensure that there are no negative surprises, we've included the basic necessities in the base price. The base price includes a 6' sauna room with knotty wood walls and knotty bevel roof, and comes with a 6 KW heater. All the upgrades are priced on top of that minimum option. That's a nice sauna even to begin with!
However, you probably want to add a few things, and that's where the extra selections come in. Let's go through each choice in more detail!
THE WALL AND ROOF WOOD TYPES
There are two different wood choices available for the walls. Both are Canadian red cedar, which gives great heat insulation, weather resistance and a pleasant wood smell. The difference is between choosing knotty or clear cedar. Knotty (select tight knot cedar) is more easily available, making it more affordable. The wood knots give a rustic look that some people like in a sauna. If you want a cleaner, uniform look, you can choose the clear cedar walls.
For the roof, you have 3 different choices. The bevel roof can be made of similar knotty or clear wood as the walls, and you also have a choice of cedar shingles. The bevel roof is made of continues wood pieces (specially formed planks), while the shingles are smaller square-shaped pieces. Shingles are more expensive than bevel, and in return you get a fascinatingly detailed look to the sauna sides. Whichever roof material you choose, all roofs are triple-layered. The 3-layer design with inner walls, rain cover and your chosen top material, provides maximum insulation and keeps the elements away.
Knotty wood gives a rustic look and is more affordable than clear wood.
Clear wood gives a more polished and smoother look than knotty wood.
Knotty Bevel Sides
The roof can be made of the same knotty bevel wood as the walls.
Clear Bevel Sides
Bevel roof is made of continuous pieces of wood, knotty or clear (clear wood shown).
Cedar Shingle roof
Cedar shingles give a fascinating, detailed look to your sauna.
All three roof types are easy to install.
PORCH AND CHANGEROOM
The porch and changeroom are optional addons that can be useful in many situations. The porch offers a nice area for cooling down after the sauna, while enjoying the outdoors.
The changeroom is useful if the sauna is farther away from the main building. It also offers a medium warm cooling down area for those times when the weather might not be the best. It is easy to control the temperature by opening / closing the two doors to the sauna and outside.
Cool down after a sauna at this 2' wide porch. Having the porch also helps keep the sauna floor clean.
It is nice to have a few breaks between sauna sessions, enjoying the outdoors at this porch.
4' Changeroom is useful if your sauna is farther away from the main building.
The changeroom provides a comfortable changing space, and medium warm cooling room in winter.
HEATERS AND BENCH CHOICES
The main choice with the heaters is electric or wood-burning heater. If the sauna is going to be placed somewhere where the smoke won't bother neighbors, we recommend choosing a wood-burning heater. The electric heaters are great in cities, or if the supply or storage of firewood might be an issue.
With electric heaters, you have more choice with the benches. You can choose either the 1-tier benches on both sides, or to have a 2-tier L-shaped bench configuration (with the heater on either the left or right side of the front wall).
With wood-burning heaters, the heater is in the middle of the back wall, so the benches need to be on the sides.
The choice between electric heaters mainly has to do with the sauna size: the larger the sauna room, more strength is needed from the heater. It is also possible to choose a stronger heater than the sauna would otherwise need, if you want it to warm up faster.
The main difference with the two wood-burning heaters is about outside or inside feed. Outside feed keeps the wood debris out of the sauna floor. Inside feed shows that natural light of the fire inside the sauna, making your sauna experience perfect!
Electric heater is a simple, care-free choice for urban environments and provides plenty of heat.
Outside feed wood burning sauna heaters help keep your sauna clean by keeping the debris out.
Harvia inside feed wood burning sauna heater lets the relaxing natural light dance in your sauna. With wood-burning heaters, the benches are on the sides.
2-tier benches improve the feeling of heat and are great for kids with families. Available only with electric heaters.
Barrel-shaped firewood storage is a great solution for storing the wood for the heater!
The windows mainly depends on the other choices you make. The one type of windows available with all saunas are the two front wall windows. If you've chosen the changeroom, you can also have similar windows between the changeroom and the sauna.
With electric heaters, it's possible to have a windows on the back wall as well. The two back wall window choices are rectangular 20 inch by 30 inch window, or the signature pod-shaped window. The pod-shaped window will let in a lot of natural light, and provides an additional "wow factor" to your sauna!
Front windows are available with all pod sauna types and provide plenty of natural light.
You can choose to have windows both in the outer wall and between the changeroom and the sauna.
Pod-shaped window lets in a lot of natural light (available with electric heaters only).
Square-shaped window is a simple and affordable option for having natural light (available with electric heaters only).
