Heat treatment of aspen and alder improves the properties of wood considerably and opens up new fields of application of these types of timber. Heat treatment is the technology which involves natural changes in wood cells when exposed to supersaturated vapour under the temperatures of up to 240°C and the pressure of 0.1–0.2 MPa. In the result, the pure, environmentally friendly, solid wood with a wide range of colours is produced. Nowadays this type of wood is widely used in the production of decorative dark inserts, which emphasize the classy design of saunas. Thermally modified wood is as good as other species of wood. It is long-lasting and has a nice smell.

Sauna Flooring

When selecting the flooring for your sauna, you should consider its temperature and humidity resistance. Both properties are found in thermo-aspen, aspen, and alder woods.

In case you have a tiled or concrete floor, as an alternative to a wooden floor, you can use a wooden grid. The grid solves the heating issue and makes the space cozier.

In the sauna flooring section of the Amilano online shop, you'll find grids made from sturdy wood species.

Why Do You Need a Grid?

A grid is an elevated wooden platform. The gaps are large enough to let water drain through. With the grid, you're not in direct contact with the sauna floor. It can be used in the anteroom, under the benches and lounges, in the steam bath, and in the shower.


  • Protection from the cold floor. The floor in the steam room often doesn't get warm enough and feels uncomfortable. The wooden grid provides good insulation due to its elevation.
  • Accident prevention. The wooden grid is non-slip, reducing the risk of slipping.
  • Transmission of foot fungi is very low. The small surface area of the grid is easier to clean and disinfect.
  • You don't have to stand in sauna water.
