The retractable, space-saving S1 Sauna

The retractable, space-saving S1 Sauna

If you’re living in a busy city such as London, the idea of having a sauna in your home may seem impossible due to lack of space, but thanks to innovative technology, KLAFS now has made it possible. Visitors to the Ideal Home Show will be able to see for themselves at the London exhibition this March.

Introducing the space-saving sauna of the future – the KLAFS S1. At the touch of a button, the S1 is the world’s first sauna to retract to the size of a wardrobe. Much like a camera lens, the S1 fully extends to three times its retracted depth in just 20 seconds. 

So, if you’ve been dreaming of experiencing the relaxing and health-boosting benefits of your very own home sauna, the S1 provides the perfect solution for where space is at a premium.

KLAFS S1 Sauna – Fits easily. Anywhere.

What makes the S1 so unique is its minimal space requirements with zero compromise to the user’s thermal experience. When retracted, the S1 is only 60 centimetres deep, around the same size as an average wardrobe. The KLAFS S1 Sauna is so versatile that it can be installed in whichever room you desire, from bathrooms to guest bedrooms. This stylish, beautifully crafted sauna is now available in four sizes and has enough room for the whole family. When extended, the sauna is 1.6m deep, with the largest size of 2.3m wide.

Designed to be maintenance-free, you can simply sit back and enjoy your luxury sauna for many years to come, perfect for those with busy lifestyles. However, if you do decide to move home, the award-winning S1 is a completely mobile system and can easily join you on your journey.

Innovative sauna technology for London properties 

With flexible connection technology, the KLAFS S1 Sauna is compatible with a variety of flooring types and can also easily overcome any irregularities in the floor, making it a great choice for any room.

Another great example of the sophisticated engineering that the S1 possesses is the eMove technology that ensures gentle, synchronous movement when the sauna is expanding and retracting. The movement is so impressively gentle that if an object gets in the way the S1 will automatically stop. 

A manual, lever operated option is also available, along with a revolutionary infrared version, which when retracted measures a sleek 45 centimetres deep.
