Shown are examples of wood burning sauna stoves being offered for sale.
Built with an extended door opening for "through-the-wall" installation, this stove allows for the economy and self-reliance of using wood while maintaining safe, clean, smoke-free enjoyment inside of your sauna enclosure. Fire consumes oxygen and emits carbon monoxide. In a space as small as a sauna, these effects take place in a short period of time, and without warning. Loading and drafting from outside of the enclosure eliminates the danger. Firewood, smoke, ash, splinters and mess are all kept outside. You simply cannot beat this design if you wish to burn wood. Some of the example shown are painted. However, your stove will be shipped with no paint, unless specified. This is for several reasons. First, hi-temp paint doesn't cure until it is fired. This leaves it more likely to be scratched and brushed off in the shipping and installation process, and also,unpleasant fumes may be given off by the curing paint during the first few times the stove is fired and some buyers have asked to leave the stove bare for that reason.
The stoves feature fully welded construction of 10ga steel plate. The main fire box of the small unit is 18W x 18L x 18H with a 12 x 12 door extension. The top is inset to create a 4 inch deep rock box which is outfitted with a ring to accept 6" pipe (pipe not included). For use in larger saunas, a bigger 18W x 24L x 18H version of this stove is available. All details are the same as small stove with the exception of length.
Also available are water tank models which feature the same size firebox as the units mentioned, but with an integrated 18 x 18 x 6 inch water tank. A standard 3/4" welded fitting will allow the addition of a valve or spigot of your choosing (valve not included).
As can be seen in some photos, the door extension can be placed on any side. This allows the stove to be turned and positioned inside the sauna to best fit your space and needs. A diagram will be sent at the time of payment to allow you to customize the features to some extent, such as direction of door swing and position of water fittings, etc.
PLEASE NOTE: Stoves will be shipped upon completion and buyer will pay for shipping separately, at that time. FedEx has provided customers with the best rates, so far, and the cost can be calculated to your zip code from 54821.
Figure roughly 130# to 148#, as that is about the minimum and maximum weight. Due to the finished weight being very close to the maximum allowed by the shipper, your stove will be sold and shipped WITHOUT the top rocks or the necessary fire bricks of the standard 4 1/2" x 9" x 1 1/4" size - (20 for small unit - 26 for large unit). This size is also referred to as a "split brick". These are very readily available to most buyers near their location and the added shipping (and handling) makes it impractical to include them. Fire brick of this size usually cost less than $2 each at your local hardware or building center. Your stove is not intended to be burned without fire brick on the bottom and sides (tabs are welded inside the stove to hold bricks securely). So, check the availability of the brick before ordering and install them before you use your stove.
Prices (without shipping) are as follows:
SMALL W/TANK (18X24 ACTUAL).......$725
