It’s impossible to overestimate the importance of wood in sauna construction. Each type of wood has specific characteristics. Choosing types which are best suited for the sauna is crucial – and can determine whether or not you feel comfortable and happy in the sauna. And expert craftsmanship of this product of nature is of equal importance – because ultimately, it’s the wood that exerts perhaps the strongest influence over the climate in the sauna. The sturdy, knot-free wood of Canadian hemlock is perfect for saunas and SANARIUM®. Even when subjected to extreme conditions, it doesn’t warp. It also radiates heat very evenly. For our sauna seats and benches, we use soft, splinter-free woods such as abachi or poplar, or other woods with low thermal conductivity. The seats and benches are then fixed from the underside using screws which do not corrode or rust. The benches can support up to 200kg in weight, and are simple to remove when the sauna is cleaned.
The sauna heater has always been at the heart of any sauna. Which is why we treat these stone-filled heaters with the consideration they deserve. When you choose your sauna heater, we offer competent and comprehensive advice, sophisticated designs and bespoke quality. Because not only do you want your sauna heater to generate the perfect sauna climate – you also want it to serve you for many years to come.
Sauna control panels
The first Finnish saunas provided a welcome change to the cold, but when it came down to it, they only had two settings – fire on, or fire off. The rest was up to Mother Nature. KLAFS sauna control panels, on the other hand, are packed to the brim with state-of-the-art technology: microprocessors, phase sequence relays and a diagnostic system. This makes them safer, more durable and more user-friendly.

The Dresden Institute for Wood Technology awarded its seal of approval to KLAFS quality real wood veneer panels, certifying that the panels we use do not contain formaldehyde, and therefore conform to legal requirements. KLAFS real wood veneer panels also meet all legal demands with regard to the emission of VOCs (volatile organic compounds).
In order for you to feel completely relaxed and safe in your sauna or spa facility, we strive to ensure our products receive all certification and seals of approval from the relevant quality assurance boards. KLAFS saunas meet all RAL quality requirements in accordance with the guidelines published by the Quality Assurance Board for Sauna Construction.
