Helo Sauna & Steam and Heat & Glo Partner to Create Ultimate Home Retreat
New Sauna Flame™ combines ambiance of a gas fireplace with a relaxing sauna-bathing environment
Helo® Sauna & Steam and Heat & Glo™ have partnered to launch the world’s first sauna with a fireplace. The Sauna Flame™ offers homeowners the ultimate personal retreat by blending the relaxing, mesmerizing effect of watching a fire with the soothing and rejuvenating aspects of a sitting in a sauna.
Constructed from specialty woods such as European Alder, Nordic Whitewoods and Western Red Cedar, specially-designed Helo sauna rooms can incorporate the Sauna Flame gas fireplace/sauna heater to immerse occupants in heat and steam while also showcasing a vivid flame. The Sauna Flame uses a Heat & Glo direct vent gas fireplace and a unique integral rock chamber with a black granite top to complement the granite sauna rocks. The sauna rooms also include curved benches, ambient lighting and a bay design that features multiple windows for a panoramic outdoor view.
“Finding a sense of balance and a refuge from daily demands is becoming increasingly more important to homeowners,” says Keith Raisanen, President, Helo. “We sought to combine the calming effects of a fireplace with the rejuvenating effects of a sauna to give homeowners a better way to relax and renew. From a style and warmth standpoint, Heat & Glo hearth products make the ideal fit with our sauna designs.” Heat & Glo, Brand Manager, Susan-Hilt Lagos adds: “The partnership with Helo extends both companies legacy of providing home solutions that create entirely new experiences for homeowners.”
The Sauna Flame is available in a range of outdoor or indoor Helo sauna rooms. The outdoor model is approximately 8 feet by 7 feet with a 4 foot by 8 foot covered verandah. The indoor model is 8 feet by 8 feet. The Sauna Flame requires 120 volt electrical service and natural gas or liquid propane service.
A complete sauna package including the Sauna Flame retails from $7,500 to $12,000. It is available to the market only through Helo dealers. For more information on the Sauna Flame visit www.helosaunas.com or call 1-(800)-882-4352.
