Sauna Ceiling Height

Ceiling Height Diagram

While an 8′ Ceiling is acceptable, It’s important to reduce Sauna room height from a standard ceiling height of 8′ to the Sauna standard of 7′ from the finished floor if possible. An 8′ ceiling wastes heat, energy and building material; and it increases the heating time. The diagram below shows the variance of temperature at various levels in the Sauna room. We do not recommend a Sauna ceiling lower than 6′ 2″.
