Sustainable thermowood

Rooted in Swedish tradition

The Panel wooden hot tub sports a refined exterior and a practical clip-on fence, both made of eco-certified ThermoWood®. The thermal process is environmentally-friendly and confers weather- and mould-resistant properties, which is why Skargards uses this material exclusively for all cladding and wooden accessories.

  • Eco-certified ThermoWood®

Powerful direct-heating stove

Perfecting a proven concept

As with all traditional wooden hot tubs, the log-fired stove is submerged in the bathing water to heat it directly and effectively. Heat transfer is optimised thanks to the cylindrical stove design and the wise choice of material. Indeed, high-grade stainless steel ensures long-term durability and performance as well as resistance to seawater and chlorine.

Direct-heating stove

Ergonomic bathing area

Your new comfort zone

Fitted with Skargards’ signature tub, the Panel is remarkably comfortable. Multi-layered fibreglass has replaced the plain wooden interior of traditional wooden hot tubs, providing a smooth surface and ergonomic shapes instead of sharp 90° angles. Once you get in, you may find it hard to get out.

Premium materials

Quality within your means

The Panel combines sleek Swedish design with strong, durable materials such as the ThermoWood® cladding, the stainless steel stove, the multi-layered fibreglass tub and the galvanised steel undercarriage. And with low running costs, you can take pride in a smart wooden hot tub purchase for many years to come.

Wherever the warmth takes you

Delivered ready-to-use, the Panel is designed to immediately be set up in your location of choice thanks to its solid self-supporting structure. Feel free to place it in your garden, near your cottage or in any other remote, picturesque area. That's the beauty of a wooden hot tub with no electrical components.

Skargards' classic wood stove

The way nature intended

We believe that a log-fired stove is the natural and authentic way to enjoy a wooden hot tub. The experience offers a welcome break from hectic everyday life and all the technology that comes with it. It is a simple concept that has stood the test of time: burning wood in a stove to heat the bathing water.

Simple heating process

Harnessing fire with ease

How does it work? Simply start by laying some kindling and a few logs at the bottom of the stove. Once ignited, the fire's intensity can be regulated with the wood-handled stove lid that controls the air flow. To make it all the easier, the stove's height facilitates wood loading — its large size accommodates long logs and significantly reduces the number of refills.

  • Large fire chamber
  • Easy temperature control

Durable cylindrical construction

Created for all seasons

All Skargards wooden hot tubs were made to withstand the harsh winters of Sweden. Made with durable AISI 316 stainless steel, the Panel stove is cylindrically shaped which renders it highly resistant to warping despite extreme temperature variation. As the strongest and most structurally sound geometrical shape, a cylinder allows for a thinner stove lining which optimises heat transfer. 


  • High-grade Stainless steel

  • Winter proof

Protective thermowood fence

A safe space to share with loved ones

An elegant wooden fence safely separates the bathing area from the stove and flue. For safe use, the wide handle on the stove lid is made of treated wood which does not conduct heat. Skargards is committed to your personal safety — that's why it is the only producer to have all its wooden hot tubs CE-certified.


  • Certified product

Simple enhancements

Building on the basics

Although wooden hot tubs are based on a beautifully simple concept, there are always ways to push the enveloppe with some equally simple enhancements such as optimising air flow and water circulation.

​​​​​​​

Air flow is regulated thanks to the stove lid which sports a wide handle for safe use. The side-channel on the right ensures that air can reach the core of the fire to increase its intensity.

The bottom of the stove is fitted with two channels where the heat is at its most intense. Due to the Venturi effect, the natural circulation of the water is given a boost, thus distributing the warmth evenly throughout the entire hot tub.

Multi-layered fibreglass tub

Durability first and foremost

Every Skargards tub is carefully crafted with the same material used for sailboat hulls. The glass fibre reinforced plastic confers impressive strength, durability and light weight. The top coat allows the wooden hot tub to be used with chlorine as well as seawater.

  • Multi-layered fibreglass
  • Chlorine resistant
  • Seawater resistant

Ergonomic seating

Comfortable for all sizes

The tub's unique design supports the contours of your body to provide superior comfort for hours on end. The curves are specially shaped to accommodate people of all heights. A wooden hot tub this comfortable is hard to come by.

  • Seamless rounded edge
  • Ergonomic shapes

Easy maintenance

A breeze to clean

In contrast to traditional wooden hot tubs that need to be brushed clean, the glossy surface of the Skargards lining is exactly like that of your home bathtub. No wooden seating to scrub or tough corners to reach — simply detach the fence and wipe the tub clean with a cloth.


  • Glossy surface

  • Clip-on fence

Thermowood clip-on fence

A neatly-divided wooden hot tub

Made from the same durable ThermoWood®, the tub's fence elegantly separates the stove from the bathing area. It is robust thanks to a stainless steel frame. A convenient locking clip ensures quick removal of the fence so that cleaning the tub is as simple as can be.

Colour options

Pearl white or ocean blue?

All Skargards hot tubs come in a standard pearl white colour. Ocean blue is also available as an option for turbid water from a lake or a well.

Panel for 4-5 persons

Panel Plus for 6-8 persons

Please note that the optional ocean blue colour is priced at £150 per hot tub, whereas the standard pearl white colour is included at no extra cost.

Heating recommendations

Stove

The Panel stove improves on the proven concept of traditional wooden hot tubs. As such, it is submerged in the bathing water to heat it directly and effectively. The main barrel contains the fire. A draft pulls air into the stove, thus optimising combustion and leading the smoke out through the flue. The stove lid is specially designed to adjust air intake for temperature control.


  • Large fire chamber

  • Stove lid

  • High-grade stainless steel

Interior

Skargards' signature ergonomic tub is crafted with 5 layers of glass fibre reinforced plastic.

  • Multi-layered fibreglass
  • Ergonomic design
  • Chlorine resistant
  • Salt water resistant

Exterior

All Skargards hot tub cladding and wooden accessories are made of eco-certified ThermoWood®  sourced from Scandinavia. The environmentally-friendly thermal process confers strong weather- and mould-resistant properties to the wood. According to the Building Research Establishment (BRE), the expected service life of ThermoWood® is over 30 years.

  • Eco-certified Thermowood®

Base frame

The Panel features a robust base frame made of galvanised steel. Each hot tub is elevated 4 cm to allow to lead hoses and wires at any point. This also allows air to flow through and avoids condensation.

Drain

Hidden from sight, the drain is located to the left of the stove behind the wooden fence. A string connects the plug to a floater at the surface of the water. Emptying the water is as simple as pulling the floater. A 2-meter hose is included to direct the water outflow.

What's included

The Panel is delivered fully assembled and equipped with everything you'll need. All hot tubs from Skargards are built for long-lasting durability, produced with the highest quality materials. Each hot tub can be complemented with accessories such as an insulated lid, a side table and steps.
