Finnmark turns a box van into sauna


FBCC member Finnmark Ltd has launched a wood-burning sauna using a box van from Ifor Williams Trailers. The box van sauna was featured in the Northern Echo newspaper. Read the whole article here!

The box van sauna is new, purpose-built mobile sauna, which has a dimmable LED-lit back rest. The sauna will be parked up at idyllic tourist spots including the Lake District and at endurance events, cycle races and triathlons once lockdown restrictions lift.

Jake and Max Newport of Finnmark ltd consulted distributors Alan Tuer Trailers in Carlisle to find the perfect box van model to their project – the BV127. Finnmark ltd used western red cedar wood from Canada during construction, to keep weight to a minimum. Ifor Williams Trailers was chosen as the brands share the same values of quality and durability.

Finnmark Ltd is so pleased with its box van sauna it could lead to a new product range for leisure companies or private hire.

Finnmark Ltd is known in the industry for their uncompromising dedication to quality and authenticity when it comes to the sale of sauna equipment and bespoke installations. The growing company, which was founded in 2016, is based in County Durham’s Enterprise City.
