Finnleo Introduces New Sauna Heater & Digital Control: Designer-Trend

Finnleo is pleased to introduce the new Designer-Trend sauna heater & control package.  This new package combines the classic clean styling of the stainless steel Designer series heater with a modern and sleek digital control.

Designer-Trend - Inside Control Installation ShownThe Designer heater has been a Finnleo Classic with years of proven performance in residential installations, health clubs, day spas, and hotels. The Designer efficiently and reliably produces a soft heat and soft steam desired by sauna bathers. The stainless steel shell with black cast aluminum top gives a modern, finished look to the sauna. The heaters are specified for rooms ranging from 100 to 425 cubic feet (approximately 4’ x 4’ to 7’ x 8’).

Only ¼” in depth and surface mounted with sleek, modern European design, the Trend control includes a new feature to the Finnleo sauna control line-up: The Trend can be installed either inside or outside of the sauna (read installation instructions for details). This interior/exterior feature has been well received by architects, designers, and builders as it gives maximum installation flexibility. For outdoor saunas, bathroom saunas with exterior walls next to a shower or other locations  where an exterior mounted control is not the ideal installation, the control can be mounted inside the sauna.  The desired ease-of-access can be achieved as an alternative to heaters with built-in controls.. Now, the sauna bather can have touchpad control of temperature, lights, and other functions while in the sauna.

Features of the Trend control include:
  • Digital control for improved reliability and performance
  • Time & Temperature settings
  • 10-hour delayed start function
  • Light Switch
  • Can be mounted inside or outside the sauna
  • Surface mount
  • Dimensions: 3-3/8” W x 4-1/4” H x 1/4” D

Trend Control

Keith Raisanen, President of Finnleo, said:

“The Designer-Trend provides the latest digital control technology while selling at our most affordable price point.  The control offers many great features, but the ability to mount the controls inside or outside the sauna will open many new design opportunities. We look forward to seeing pictures of installations.”
