Terms and Conditions
TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE - Rocky Mountain Saunas
I. Warranty Coverage
Grade A lumber is used on all sauna models. Wood is a living material that continues to respond to climate conditions, even after being manufactured into a sauna. Prior to shipping, the wood is inspected for consistency, color and quality. Variations in the color or grain, and irregularities such as fine cracks are part of the natural beauty of the wood and in no way are considered defects.
Since the wood used in the infrared saunas has been kiln dried, a certain amount of expansion and contraction occurs in the wood within a sauna environment. During normal operation, wood may develop fine cracks due to the changes in humidity level of the wood. This is considered normal and will not affect the structural integrity of the sauna.
Rocky Mountain Saunas are shipped around the globe, and can experience slight blemishes, scratches or scuffs in transit. All structures using wood are susceptible to minor dents, scratches and scuffing which are not covered by warranty. This is normal and will not affect the integrity, operation or Limited Lifetime Warranty of your sauna.
In most cases, minor wood blemishes on the exterior of the sauna may be treated by using a small amount of furniture polish, tung oil or other furniture treatment products. Please avoid any treatment containing Benzene or a high concentration of alcohol. Any interior blemishes, scratches, scuffs or chips can be either left alone, sanded or combination of gluing plus sanding.
Any compensation for small aesthetic repairs or minor cosmetic damage will be determined solely by Rocky Mountain Saunas Inc.
Rocky Mountain Saunas provides an Limited Lifetime Warranty against defects in workmanship or materials on ALL Nano-Carbon™ Heater Panels. Rocky Mountain Saunas provides an Limited Lifetime Warranty against defects in workmanship or materials on ALL Electrical Components. i.e.: Control Panels, Thermostat sending unit, CPU, Terminal Blocks and relays, 12v system, etc.
Glass Doors and Windows
Tempered Glass Door is under warranty through the shipping process. Once the sauna kit has arrived at its final destination and the door is intact, any cracking, breakage or damage of the glass door is the responsibility of the client to repair or replace.
Accessories / Optional Upgrades

Optional Custom One-Way Privacy Wrap has a One Year Warranty for both indoor and outdoor applications. Sales of all Custom One-Way Privacy Wraps are final at the time of purchase and are non-refundable.

The fabric used for the roof of the waterproof cover is resistant to water penetration; however, it is sewn to the acrylic canvas sides. It is required to place the plastic sheet included directly over the sauna roof prior to installing the weather resistant cover and placing an object on the sauna roof to give the fabric elevation for water run off as further protection.
Like any wood exposed to the elements, it is required to treat the exterior wood of the sauna regularly to keep it from deteriorating.
