Narvi Softy Electric Sauna Heater
The class and style of the Narvi Softy electric sauna heater makes it a unique, statement piece in any sauna. This long pillar heater combines an excellent löyly with a distinguished contemporary design. The secret of this heaters great löyly is its’ large sauna stone capacity through which water can flow with ease, down the length of the heater. This large stone capacity, twinned with the electronic thermostat controls, ensures a pleasantly even temperature that can be set exactly to the individual user’s preference.
The adjustable temperature range is between 40 and 110 degrees Celsius, and the inbuilt delay start timer can be set from 15 minutes to 24 hours.This heater has in-built safety control ensuring it will only heat continuously for a maximum of 4 hours.The heater is also compatible with other control units and thus is available as a standalone model without a control unit. However, please note that a control unit is required for this heater to function.
The heater is built with durability in mind, the base section from rustproof steel and the stone basket from chrome steel. The Softy can be stylishly installed within the sauna benching with the use of the Narvi Softy Installation Flange. As with all Narvi electric sauna heaters, the heating element is a considerable 8.5mm, this ensures the longevity of the product as well as guaranteeing a significant reduction in the risk of overheating.

It can be installed on both single phase and three phase power supplies, in the case of the 6.8 & 9 kW models, with the use of the 'Narvi N2014E Power Card, Control Unit & Thermostat', which can be bought together.
