Model EE8G Sauna Barrel
The SaunaLife ERGO-Series Elegance 8 outdoor sauna barrel was designed and engineered by sauna enthusiasts to be the most spacious, comfortable, durable, and attractive backyard sauna available.
Ergonomics – Barrel Sauna Comfort
Comfort is extremely important when investing in an outdoor sauna barrel. Smaller barrels use fewer materials, so they can be less expensive; however, there is a big tradeoff in comfort, with lower door height, less headroom, and lower-quality benches. Small barrels also have a tighter arc that compromises bather posture, prevents standing upright, and requires one to duck upon entry and exit.
The SaunaLife Model EE8G is an impressive 7’7” in diameter and 6’7” in length so you can stand comfortably. Due to the large diameter, its benches can be ergonomically contoured and formfitting. The generous barrel arc can support a generous arched backrest for true lumbar support and a natural seating position. Silky-smooth seating is made from beautiful Thermo-Aspen that is 50% thicker than in lesser saunas. This knot-free wood feels comfortable against your skin and has ideal thermal properties for a sauna so it will never be too hot against your skin.
An 8mm tempered glass front wall drenches the sauna with natural light and further accentuates the incredible spaciousness of the interior. The barrel exterior is made from full-length spruce staves that are thermally enhanced for greater strength, dimensional stability, and weather resistance. Secure and level footing is assured with the addition of a fitted floor.
Durability – A lifetime of outdoor bathing pleasure
“Thermo-Spruce” means that the wood was naturally treated with pressurized heat and steam so it can last up to 2 times longer than Cedar wood! Every SaunaLife barrel begins with industry-leading 1.65” thick full-length Thermo-Spruce staves for better durability and exceptional thermal resistance (R-value). This chemical-free, eco-friendly wood is dimensionally stable and ideal for outdoor saunas.
Ingenuity – Engineered to exceed expectations
Superior engineering results in a sauna barrel that is both easily assembled and jam-packed with innovative features. Go ahead, splash the water, the EE8G is built to thrive with water. Industry-leading 1-7/8” wide and 1/8” thick stainless-steel barrel bands compress and secure the massive staves. A watertight shingle kit (a must-have for an outdoor barrel sauna) with drip rails provides exceptional rainwater management and keeps bathers dry in any weather conditions. The EE8G includes dual floor drains – one is conveniently placed under the sauna heater for your water-tossing pleasure and a second drain is positioned near the door, where cold plunge or pool water may collect.
Illumination – Inside and out
Illuminating your barrel highlights the beauty of the wood and further enhances your sauna experience. SaunaLife provides an elegant dotless white LED lighting system that is Wi-Fi app-based that allows infinite adjustment. A hand-held remote control is also provided for on/off/dim operation. SaunaLife’s white LED fixture is heat and water-certified (IP67) and is dotless for an even, uninterrupted glow. Explore the available E Sconce+ Package, which provides two striking outdoor LED wall sconces and a second interior LED lightbar additional illumination. To add an additional sensory layer to your sauna experience, consider adding E MOOD Chromotherapy Lighting Package for an infinite range of colors.
