Helo was first established in 1919 in Vyborg, Finland and in 1949, its first prototype electric sauna heater was built. Helo is the most popular sauna brand worldwide and has been well known since the 1960’s by U.S. architects, builders, and commercial contractors alike. In 1990 Helo was acquired by Saunatec Inc., which has become the world’s largest sauna and steam manufacturer.
The major focus of Helo R&D is to actively develop new products and solutions that meet market demand by drawing on feedback from their network of distribution partners worldwide. Helo works with top designers and experts to ensure that new products both look and perform to exacting standards.
Premium home and club sauna products brought to you by Helo include a wide variety of traditional and far-infrared sauna products. There are many sauna rooms, custom-cuts, electric sauna heaters, sauna control units, sauna accessories, interior solutions, wood burning sauna stoves, outdoor saunas, and far-infrared saunas to choose from.
Helo’s sauna rooms have been so beautifully planned and laid out, it’s hard to believe they’re modular! With a variety of styles to choose from, you will feel like you have designed your own personal sauna. These sauna rooms involve minimal assembly time because of precision manufacturing. Unique angles and curves, precision finished doors and windows, and abundant use of glass give these saunas an elegant-upscale feel. Panel-built sauna rooms are also available complete and ready to assemble. Although, for those who require flexibility, Helo’s custom-cut sauna room packages are ideal. Each package contains all the material and equipment necessary to complete your sauna once it has been framed, wired, and insulated. These custom-cut sauna rooms are great for customers looking for the ease in assembling a kit, but want more flexibility in the layout. The most essential component and the so-called “heart and soul” of a sauna is the sauna heater. Helo supplies nine impressive series of sauna heaters that are durably constructed of rust resistant materials including a stainless steel body with standard stainless steel heating elements. Each series of heaters ensures soft heat with pleasant steam. Each series operates using one of Helo’s easy-to-use sauna heater control units or utilizes built-in controls mounted directly on the bottom front or side of the sauna heater. Helo provides over 40 assorted sauna accessories to choose from to enhance all aspects of your sauna experience. These accessories are crafted of the finest materials that are guaranteed to add years of enjoyment to your sauna.
Exclusively offered by Helo are the interior solutions, outdoor sauna rooms, and wood burning sauna stoves. Design and quality are evident and features not found anywhere else are found with Helo’s deluxe interior and exterior upgrades. Raising the bar on sauna design, Helo and a well-known Finnish designer created the stunning and innovative Helo-Deco Sauna Interior System. These interior solutions provide a fresh European look with benches, a lighting system, a glass water bowl with faucet, and an entertainment system. What is a better way to spend time with family and friends than on the patio or in the backyard? Helo offers both patio and backyard outdoor saunas that tie in perfectly with outdoor entertaining. Enjoy either of the various Patio and Surburban series of outdoor saunas. To traditional sauna enthusiasts, the wood burning sauna is something special. Capture the best of wood-fired saunas with any of the eight series of wood burning sauna stoves provided by Helo. These wood burning sauna stoves produce soft heat, soft steam, and a crackling fire.
Far-infrared saunas are the perfect way to warm up with new breakthrough technology. Helo has spent the last 4 years developing a new technology that nearly eliminates harmful radiation while still maintaining the positive effects of the infrared sauna. Helo’s wall-to-wall flat panel carbon-fiber CarbonFlex IR heating system literally wraps you evenly in gentle heat, avoiding uncomfortable temperature fluctuations found in other IR systems. All Helo models can be simply plugged into a 120 volt household outlet. These models also allow you to select one of three lighting systems depending on your mood. Your preferred comfort settings for heat, sound, and light are easily managed from a touch screen control.
