Cedar contains oils and phytoncides which have beneficial effects on the cardiovascular, nervous, respiratory systems.
What is the difference between a bath barrel and a regular bath?
* The most important difference between a bath barrel and a regular bath is the cost. Cedar bath barrel cost is from three hundred thousand rubles | Regular bath cost is from one million. * It is mobile, so it is not subject to taxation (article 130.1 of the Civil Code of the RF.). * Another advantage is that a bath barrel is a saver of time and strength during the assembly. You can get our bath in 10 minutes, and in 10 days it will decorate your site. * There is another important difference -the size, our bath barrel takes up three times less space on your site without losing its functionality.
How to install a bath barrel?
A bath barrel is installed on any flat surface so that its bases (legs) do not touch directly the ground (there should be a stone, brick, gravel laying).
Why are additional bars needed?
Additional bars raise the bath above the ground and minimize the possibility of subsidence of the soil under the bath. They are easily replaced in decades. The bars are planed and treated with an antiseptic.
Is it difficult to maintain a bath barrel?
After steaming, you need to put a little firewood into the stove, open windows and supply and exhaust valves to remove moisture. You need to adjust the tape in winter and summer when thermal expansion of wood is observed (Depends on the climatic zone).
How quickly does a bath barrel heat up?
Due to the absence of corners, a bath barrel warms up in just 30 minutes. Low firewood consumption and high efficiency. Keeps temperature for a long time due to the specific round shape. 25% less heat loss due to lack of corners.
How long does the heated bath keep warm?
In winter if you turn off the stove and do not open the doors and windows, the temperature in the steam room drops from one hundred to sixty degrees in two and a half hours.
How fireproof is a bath barrel?
Around the chimney pipe there is a custom-made AISI 439 stainless steel passage unit with kaolin wool. A sheet of Minerita with ventilating ducts is installed on the walls and floor under the stove to remove temperature. Minerit and basalt cardboard are also used around heating flue in stoves with stoveholes in an adjoining room.

Why do we need hoops?
Any wood is a living material. It accumulates water from the air and rainfall. Adjustable hoops make it possible to adjust the tightening of the bath barrel, depending on the dryness and humidity of the season. In our technology, the hoop does not carry the main bearing function and is mainly designed to strengthen the structure in transportation and installation. Therefore, after installing the bath in place, it is necessary to adjust the tightening of the hoops so that the hoop moves freely (sagging freely) and the distance between the hoop and the surface of the bath at the bottom of the bath is at least 3 cm. This is necessary to compensate for the effect of natural expansion of the wood on the design of the bath (sagging doors, prevent damage to the wood profile) in rainy and wet period when the wood collects moisture. Tighten the hoop only when moving and transporting the bath.
How is wood protected?
From external influences: rain, snow, the sun and insects, mold and fungi, the outer surface of the bath is treated with a long-acting antiseptic, which: - forms an elastic, water-repellent, breathable coating on the surface, which is highly resistant to adverse weather conditions. - It contains highly effective biocides to protect wood from mold, rot, blue stain, and algae common in Russia. - Due to its light-resistant pigments, it protects wood from the harmful effects of UV radiation. - Wax enhances the water-repellent properties of the coating. - Natural linseed oil provides the protective film with elasticity and prevents it from cracking. We recommend you to treat the inside of the bath with the Finnish composition Tikkurila SUPI for indoor treatment of saunas and wet rooms. The composition contains anti-blue and mildew components and forms a dirt and water repellent surface.
