Our Western Red Cedar sauna products offer the unique blend of rich aroma and luxurious silk finish that only the best cedar for saunas can provide. Renowned for its high impermeability to liquids and its natural phenolic preservatives, Western Red Cedar is ideally suited for exterior use where humidity is high, such as in saunas.
The cellular composition of cedar, with its millions of microscopic air filled cells, provides a high degree of insulation and cedar’s pleasantly aromatic natural oils are the reason for its decay-resistance and distinctive rich colour.
Your clients will be delighted by exceptional performance and the smooth finish of our finely machined sauna panelling. Manufactured locally by our team of timber processing professionals using our custom machining technology, which enables us to meet even the most demanding sauna specification.
Whilst our sauna panelling range is specifically designed for use in saunas, it is highly versatile and may be used in any other installation where the tranquil, fragrant effect of sauna panelling is appropriate.

Western Red Cedar Sauna Panels
Traditional Finnish saunas were always wood fired and were used both to bathe and also for social enjoyment. Such wood fired saunas still remain popular for outdoor enthusiasts, however infrared saunas are rapidly gaining popularity.
To meet the demands of the sauna environment, the timber panelling must withstand the unique sauna environment in which both dry and damp air is present at the same time.
The high heat (average of 82–88℃) and the low humidity (about 20%), designed to promote natural deep cleansing through overall perspiration, not only take a toll on timber walls due to expansion and contraction occurring each time the sauna heats and cools, but also require a fair degree of insulation from the walls in order to maintain the high internal temperature of the room.
Our sauna profile comprises a tongue and groove design allowing a face or concealed fixing to be used.
Health Benefits of Cedar Panels
Saunas panelled with our Western Red Cedar panelling present the perfect place to relax in a warm aromatic environment while the body’s impurities are flushed away resulting in a clear, healthy skin and a rosy afterglow.
Your clients will revel in the beauty of our finely machined wood panelling as the soft heat and humidity soothes and relaxes tired muscles, relieves stress, and promotes a wonderful after-sauna feeling of satisfaction and well-being.
The exceptional insulation properties of Western Red Cedar panels ensure that the sauna remains hot enough to create the necessary increase in the rates of blood circulation, breathing and pulse so that the sauna acts like mild exercise, burning calories and providing a gentle cardiovascular workout for the heart.
