Sauna Heaters & Controls
A wide range of heaters is available including the most
popular standard electric type, wood burning models for the traditionalist
with an outdoor cabin and special new designs including "EverReady"
which runs permanently with a "trickle" feed so that sauna is
always ready for use and "Steamy" offering four different climates
with increased humidity for a "softer" bathing experience.
essential part of sauna bathing is "Loyly" - the steam sensation
created when water is ladled onto the sauna rock. Over the years, Helo
has developed electric sauna heaters with more compact dimensions and
efficient materials, reducing running costs and improving longevity but
never compromising on sauna rock. Today even our smallest heaters retain
a full width rock tray with 10kg capacity while the latest SOFTHOT design
can take up to 35 kg allowing for more humidity in the lower temperatures
which most British bathers prefer.

The softhot model represents the very latest thinking in sauna heaters.
Using the same high quality materials as the standard unit, the pleasing
contoured shape permits a larger store of sauna rock for softer sauna
at lower temperatures. This heater is wall mounted on separate brackets
so that the convenient side fitted controls can be sited to the right
or left by simply turning the heater. An optional floor stand allows
for more versatile and imaginative sauna layouts - stand the heater
in the centre of the cabin or in front of a window. Servicing is simplified
by top fitting elements. Softhot is available for use with separate
control panels and in the same power range as the standard heater.
Available from stock in all kW sizes, single or 3 phase connection.

red, blue, green or stainless steel are available to special order.
||SOFTHOT Steamy Heater

cabin climates programmed via a separate dedicated control panel.

is fully automatic and ensures safety, disabling the steam generator
when the temperature rises above 600. Electric rating is 6 or 8kW
(steam 2kW) - choose between manual fill steam generator or automatic
(requires adjacent water supply. Available from stock in all types.
Single phase requires extra contactor box. Finish: shadow grey
Now highly popular in Finland, EverReady is the first heater to offer
instant sauna without the usual heat up time. The secret is in the
huge rock store and incredibly efficient insulation within the heater
walls which retains the heat under an insulated lid. After initial
heating the 110kg of sauna rock is kept at temperature by a minimal
300watt (3 light bulbs!) supply; so effective is the heater insulation
that the outside of the heater remains cool! When a sauna is desired
the lid is lifted and large quantities of water applied to create
instant steamy heat. A booster element, in conjunction with a lower
opening vent, then raises the temperature within a few minutes to
a dryer more usual sauna level. Supplied with a special pre-wired
control pad, this heater is available to special order in 6kW rating.
Finish is black with stainless steel and wood trim.
||WOOD BURNING heaters
A number of wood burning heaters are available to special order for
sauna chalets. Options include glass door, water tank for hot water
production and various chimney types. Please contact us with you requirements.
||SKLE COMMERCIAL heaters
Designed for larger commercial saunas, this heavy duty floor standing
heater has lower watt elements for extended running time. As the power
base for thousands of commercial cabins worldwide, the SKLE series
has a massive 60kg rock store and requires the OK33 control panel
which allows up to 12 hour running time. 9-15kW, three phase connection
only. Finish is stainless steel
an efficient, genuine Finnish sauna experience , it is essential to load
the rocks into the heater correctly. Place the larger rocks loosely around
the elements (never bend them) - do not pack tightly as good airflow is
essential for a pleasant sauna environment and long element life. Place
the smaller rocks on top and ensure that the elements are fully covered.
As the rock crumbles with use check regularly and replace as necessary.
in commercial applications and optionally available for home users who
require eye level operation, Helo sauna control panels offer various timer
choices and thermostatic settings with high temperature protection via
