Traditional Western Red Cedar saunas are widely used in commercial applications. The natural oils and extractives from Cedar act as preservatives to prolong its ability to withstand rot and decay. Primarily, Western Red Cedar is the essential choice for traditional saunas as it can withstand years of usage in various conditions. The stability and low shrinkage rate of Cedar maintains its shape and stays straight even in high moisture environments.
Aside from the beauty of Western Red Cedar’s colour and structure, its high insulation value captures the heat inside for better circulation. In addition, Cedar can easily suppress and absorb sound to create a comfortable and private ambience. Western Red Cedar is easy to work with and easily reparable, as a result the beauty and comfort of a cedar sauna can last a lifetime.
