Can the fans shown on your website be used in a Sauna?

Our bath fans have not been tested for sauna use.  Exhaust fans in a sauna are unnecessary as there is required ventilation built into the room.  An intake vent is required under or near the heater to pull air into the room and an exhaust (no fan - just an opening) is required as close to opposite the intake vent to maximize air exchange.
Bath room and shower fans for steam are used to help dry out the room because of the 100% humidity while saunas are already dry and have 30-40% humidity.
