SaunaLife Model E8 6 Person Sauna Barrel

This 6 person outdoor sauna has a barrel shape with a 6’5” interior diameter, allowing most people to easily get in and out of the sauna. The Thermo-Spruce barrel outside is connected through a series of 1/8 inch thick stainless steel barrel bands.

The seats inside the barrel sauna feature a 15-inch back and a 17.8 inch sitting space, providing a good body. The black roofing shingles add a quality touch to the sauna, as they provide further insulation.

An LED light bar on the inside provides additional lighting. The two vent system of the outdoor barrel sauna also provides support for electric and wood-burning stoves alike. You can choose to work with either of these power sources for getting heat into your sauna.
