Scandi Life saunas are born from Scandinavian inspired designs, coupled with English practicality of use and featured with the latest Sauna technology.

Be encapsulated by the luxury of Canadian hemlock and obscured by tinted and toughened 8mm glass, each sauna also comes with complimentary and detachable privacy panels for a different aesthetic.

Standard in a Scandilife sauna, extra height inside creates an airy feel and facilitates an easier entrance. Even the door handle doubles as a tasteful towel holder, we’ve thought of everything.

    Infrared saunas are widely used & incorporated into treatment plans by pain management specialists as a way to decrease muscle pain, aches & to speed up recovery time. The infrared saunas heat action penetrates tissue, joints & muscles to relieve a wide range of aches & pains to even chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia.


    Contrasting to traditional saunas which operate at extreme and harsh temperatures, infrared is a gentle, soothing and therapeutic heat that promotes relaxation and improved sleep.


    Studies have shown that benefits of an infrared sauna session can burn upwards of 600 calories all whilst you relax! As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories.


    Due to the low power requirements on Scandi Life Saunas, you can simply plug into a standard domestic socket and you are good-to-go. Johnsons will even deliver and install it for you!

    An infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses light to create heat. This type of sauna is sometimes called a far-infrared sauna — “far” describes where the infrared waves fall on the light spectrum. A traditional sauna uses heat to warm the air, which in turn warms your body. An infrared sauna heats your body directly without warming the air around you.

    One of the main differences between a traditional sauna and an infrared sauna is the heat involved while inside the unit. Traditional dry saunas use temperatures as high as 185 to 195 degrees F, which can overwhelm those who are more sensitive to the heat.

    Infrared saunas use a much milder temperature environment of between 120 to 135 degrees F. However, because the heat of infrared saunas travels much deeper into the body, they are able to cause a more vigorous sweat at lower temperature, states Dr. Richard Beever in the July 2009 issue of “Canadian Family Physician.”


    A traditional dry sauna uses a stove to heat the air. As the temperature of the air increases around you, the temperature of your body increases as well due to absorption by heat convection. This causes your body to start the cooling process, transporting blood closer to the surface of the skin and opening pores by sweating.

    Infrared saunas also heat the surrounding air but to a lesser degree. Instead, using infrared heaters to emit a specific wavelength of infrared light. Your skin absorbs this wavelength, causing your body’s temperature to rise. This elicits the same effects as a traditional sauna with less overall heat needed.


    Another difference between a traditional sauna and an infrared sauna is the amount of power required to operate each unit. Traditional saunas require more overall power to run, with a typical sauna taking up 6 kw of power in comparison to the typical 1.6 kw needed for the infrared sauna.

    This means that a traditional sauna is almost three times as expensive to run as an infrared sauna. This can make a difference, depending on how often you use the unit.


    Can my Scandi Life Sauna be installed outside?

    Infrared saunas are not suitable for outside use. The reasons for this are that these indoor saunas are not designed for outdoor weather conditions and could damage the structure. The heaters will also not be able to reach the temperatures desired due to the colder outside environments. 

    Which Johnsons showrooms display Scandi Life saunas?

    Scandi Life saunas are on display at the following Johnsons Hot Tub showrooms: Colchester, Eastbourne, Farnham, Gosport, Harlow, Maidstone, Royston, Tewkesbury, Thurrock, Wickford, Whitstable, Wimborne, Woodcote.

    Alternatively, you can see where our saunas are on display on the individual product pages.

    What is the difference between ceramic and carbon heaters?

    We are often asked ‘what is the difference between ceramic and carbon heaters?’ Our current range of Saunas are all produced with Carbon Infrared Heaters. We’ve outlined some more details below on the differences between the two and which might be the best choice for you.

    Carbon Infrared Heaters:

    Carbon heaters are large flat panels varying in size from 900mm by 100mm up to 1000mm by 600mm. these panels have a coating of minute carbon particles which is how the infrared heat is created. These panels have a much larger surface area than the ceramic heaters so cover more of the cabin.

    Ceramic Infrared Heaters:

    Ceramic infrared heaters are hollow rods that measure 650mm long and are 15mm in diameter and inside the rod is the heating element wound around a glass tube. The ceramic tube heats up and emits far infrared rays. These tubes are strategically located around the cabin to ensure that the user is heated from all sides.

    Which one should I choose?

    Carbon fibre heaters use less energy than ceramic heaters as they have lower surface temperatures while being able to heat the body more intensely and penetrate the infrared waves deeper. Ceramic heaters have to heat up to a maximum of 150°F to heat the entire sauna.

    Since both carbon and ceramic heaters heat the body directly, the heat is more evenly distributed through the sauna, though ceramic heaters will create warmer spots directly in front of the heating panels which could result in cold spots further away from the panels.

    One of the major differences between carbon and ceramic heaters is their life expectancy. As newer technology, carbon sauna heaters have a longer life expectancy. Their ability to operate at lower temperatures means that it takes longer for them to reach the end of their optimal usability.

    On the other hand, ceramics are simpler and much cheaper to replace. Ceramic tubes must be heated to higher temperatures in sauna use, which means that over time they can become brittle and crack.

    Saunas that use carbon heaters are often slightly more expensive but this cost may be outweighed by potential replacement costs in ceramic saunas.

    Why choose Scandi Life Saunas?

    • LED Mood Lighting
    • Bluetooth Connectable Sound System 
    • Advance Air Purifier
    • User-Friendly Control Panel
    • Johnson’s will also provide a 2-man team to deliver and install the Scandi-Life Sauna absolutely free of charge. (For a Limited Time).

    What type of Wood/Material is used for the Scandi-Life Saunas?

    Canadian Hemlock. The reason behind this is, it is an ideal timber for use in saunas for a few key reasons; it is knot and resin free, very hard and strong and has an attractive straight grain.

    What type of Carbon Heaters are in the Scandi-Life Saunas?

    The heaters are a Far-Infrared Carbon heater (Longwave Infrared).

    What maximum air temperature does the sauna reach and how long does it take to reach it?

    A carbon heater sauna usually can reach around 60 degrees, because carbon heater emits thermal smoothly. The Sauna max setting temperature is 65 degrees, and the actual max temperature is about 60 degrees. 

    How long does it take to heat up? Time to reach max temperature?

    We tested our Saunas last summer; it needs roughly about 40 mins to reach 60 degrees and 48 minutes to 63 degrees.

    (Please Note: The test was completed during the summer and the environment temperature was 30 degrees, in winter should take longer and can reach around 60 degrees, so the temperature of sauna depends on the using environment, winter and summer temperature rise speed is different).
