RUKU’s Thermium is a very special infrared cabin. It has highly efficient Isoholz-insulation and an infrared heating system that is integrated into the Wall.
In a Thermium you can have a traditional Finnish sauna bath or an infrared sauna bath. When a Meditherm steam generator is included then it is also possible to have a steam bath and aromabath with a humidity of up to 100 percent.
Pleasant Infrared Heat
Panel heaters in the cabin walls deliver the heat in a Thermium sauna cabin. The wooden cabin walls get warm quickly but won’t get uncomfortably hot. The heat is radiated as long-wave, mild infrared-C; it feels like the pleasant heat radiated by a tiled stove.
Infrared heat is suitable for all ages. The body will feel hot and will sweat, but at a lower temperature compared to a Finnish sauna. Infrared heat acts directly on the body while heat from a sauna heater mainly heats the air.
An infrared sauna session offers a number of benefits compared to a session in a Finnish sauna: the temperature of a human body is just as high, but the air is cooler and therefore the air’s oxygen level is higher. Blood circulation is less stressed. Heat distribution in the cabin is more even.
More Space and more safety
A Thermium offers more space because there is no sauna heater in the cabin. The heating panels are behind the wall cladding. This completely eliminates the possibility of getting burned, and children can move around freely.
From mild heat to dry sauna heat
A Thermium offers more than other infrared sauna cabins: not just sauna bathing at low or medium temperatures, but also classical sauna bathing with air temperature up to approx. 80°C.

You can ladle water onto hot lava rocks in our infrared sauna and enjoy the steam emitted from the rocks. Each Thermium cabin comes with Therme; Therme is similar to a small sauna heater. It is mounted on the wall, and a guard shields the lava rocks inside.
Herbs or essential oils can be placed into its bowl to infuse fragrances into the cabin.
The installed power rating of a Therme depends on the size of the sauna cabin: either 600 Watt or 1,200 Watt.

You can choose the type of wood you would like for ceiling cladding and wall cladding: pine, rustic pine, spruce or hemlock.
The cladding boards are 16 mm thick and have special routing on the backside. These boards are specifically made for our sauna cabins. They have a long service life and their extra wide tongues and deep grooves give the boards stability and ensure highly efficient heat insulation.
You have also the option to use specially selected woods such as Swiss pine. Our large selection of exotic woods enables you to give your sauna your personal touch.
Our advisers will be happy to advise you on the range of options available for designing your individual sauna cabin.
RUKU builds sauna cabins according to your requirements and wishes – shape, size, design, fittings and furnishings.
Here is a selection of standard sizes and layouts. The door can be in different positions to meet the restrictions of your room. A made to measure version is possible when a cabin is to be placed under a slanting roof or when a room is irregularly shaped. The standard height of a cabin is 2.08 m; however, we can build a cabin lower or higher to meet the requirements on site.
