Bespoke commercial indoor sauna installation: Tottenham Hotspur Training Ground, North London
May 22, 2023
Our stunning commercial bespoke sauna installation Tottenham Hotspur Training Ground features a straight grained, warm golden brown coloured thermo aspen interior and the noble soapstone cladded electric heater from Finnish manufacturer Tulikivi. Durability and style with modern design elements were the priorities in this high-end sauna. The sauna provides a recovery space to support the demanding training schedule and lifestyle of professional athletes.
This sauna was designed for a Premier League Football club who wanted to incorporate a sauna into the training grounds to help with muscle recovery and overall performance of their players. As we have more recently witnessed in the media, research findings suggest that exercise recovery falls into one of the many health benefits of regular sauna bathing. Saunas have been found to positively support athletes’ training regimes by reducing the risk and likelihood of injuries and improving overall exercise performance.
Saunas have been found to support exercise performance and aid recovery. This sauna has a tap inside so the "löyly" water can be easily refilled.
The club wanted an authentic sauna that is both stylish and durable. The refined interior of the sauna is cladded with thermo aspen, which is a great choice for installations where durability is key. Thermally treated woods are dimensionally stable and do not rot or weep resin. The golden-brown colour is not only beautiful to the eye but also fairly easy to keep clean. We recommend a regular paraffin oil treatment to elongate the lifespan of any sauna wood.
Thermo aspen has a straight, knot free grain and a beautiful golden-brown tone.
The commercial grade Tuisku XL 18kW electric sauna heater with a Grafia Patina soapstone finish is robust but doesn’t resemble chunky looking electric heaters traditionally found in gyms and spas. The heater has an elegant soapstone cladding and a digital controller for easy heating and timing adjustments. The soapstone cladding has a low surface temperature, allowing small safety distances to combustible materials. This makes it an excellent heater choice for high-end commercial saunas with a high turnover of visitors.

Notable features in the sauna are subtle ceiling lights hidden around the edges. This creates a warm and dim ambiance perfect for relaxation. The frameless glass wall front also allows more light to come into the 2.4m x 2.4m sauna. An L-shaped seating set up with a step and floating benches allow space for three bathers lying down or up to nine bathers sitting. Floating benches create a modern, sleek look, which can also be admired from outside this sauna.
