TIPS AND INSPIRATIONS
The sauna experience can be varied using diﬀerent temperatures and humidity levels. Traditional sauna. Scandinavian sauna bathing takes two traditional forms. The classic sauna is best enjoyed at temperatures of 75-90°C in a relative humidity of 5-15%. Now and then you sprinkle a ladle of water over the hot sauna stones and feel the unique, tingling sensation as wave after wave of heat penetrates deep into your skin. Your pores open, you perspire freely and dead skin cells simply disappear in the shower. Rounding oﬀ by pouring water over the stones is part of the ritual. A slightly more extreme variation on this theme is the dry sauna in very high temperatures (95-110°C) and an almost totally dry atmosphere. This form of sauna bathing is popular among those who like to feel the searing sensation of heat on their skin, when perspiration is the only way to cool the body. For devotees of traditional sauna bathing, we recommend a classic Tylö heater or a model from the Mega series.
The temperature should be at 50-65°C, which many people experience as the ideal bathing temperature. A continuous and automatic supply of steam ensures constant humidity of 40-65%. The result is a more temperate bathing climate that tempts both young and old to linger a little longer. Just like traditional saunas, soft saunas produce the same sensation of clean, fresh skin and give you the same opportunity to unwind and relax both body and soul. For that touch of ultimate luxury, you can perfume the air with invigorating herbs or fragrant essences. If you want to enjoy soft saunas and traditional hot and dry saunas, choose Tylö Combi sauna haters – an ingenious solution that combines all the options in one single heater.
A steam bath is not to be confused with the soft sauna. To enjoy a modern steam bath you leave the realm of the wooden sauna cabin and relax instead in a specially designed room ﬁnished in glass, tiles or marble. The humidity level is a constant 100%. However, the temperature doesn’t rise above 40-45°C, so you can enjoy the experience for as long as you like and lose yourself in clouds of soothing steam. If you are thinking of installing a steam bath at home, a practical solution is to let the same facilities serve as a conventional shower as well. Just complement your choice of a Tylö VA or VB steam generator with a mixer tap and a sprinkler. Alternatively, the new Vista and Stealla shower functions with an integral generator for steam bathing.
Infrared offers the warmth you desire with a quick heat up. It is a safe and comfortable way to detoxify, and relieve aches pains and stress. Room temperature of a customised infrared room stay at 40°C which is much lower than traditional sauna.
Traditional sauna and infrared (IR)
Installing Tylö infrared panels together with a Tylö sauna heater in one and the same sauna is the optimum solution. In addition to their other positive eﬀects, infrared panels heat up the room quickly. This means you can start the detoxing cycle almost imme-diately, enabling you to squeeze in a relaxing sauna when you would otherwise not have had time. Enjoying the beneﬁts of infrared radiation (IR) on your body at the same time as the sauna heater heats up the air in the sauna room is a solution well worth considering – and one which satisﬁes all the diﬀerent preferences of the family for the best possible bathing experience.
