          Protect your sauna from the elements and keep it looking its best for longer by protecting the wood with a shingled roof. We recommend adding these asphalt shingles to keep water off the sauna and increase the wood’s longevity. The shingles are black in color. Note* not installing a roof system of some sort may result in water seepage into the sauna.



          Don't love the look of shingles? Prefer the natural look of wood? Consider a removable rain cover that can be put on or taken off depending on the weather.

          ADD A RAIN COVER $149CAD


          Turn the round bottom of your barrel sauna into a flat floor. Just like our sauna, this flooring is made with the highest quality wood and designed to fit all our barrel saunas. Upgrade your sauna experience with flat flooring.

          Very Happy With The Purchase

          We shopped around for months looking at different options. Nothing comes close quality for price Backcountry offers. Very happy we decided to move forward. The installation was pretty easy but we did need three people to assemble instead of the two recommended. Overall a painless experience.
