Check before installation
  1. Check if the power of the main fuse matches the parameters of the heater.
  2. Does the output (kW) of the heater match the volume (m3) of the sauna room? In case there are any uninsulated brick, tile, glass or log walls in the sauna room, an additional volume of 1.5 mshould be added to the sauna room for each square meter of such wall. You can use our sauna calculator for it: Calculator
Positioning the heater
  • DROP stove should be positioned on the wall close enough to the sauna bench so that you can easily throw water on the stones from the bench. The top layer of stones should be at the level of your feet when you are sitting on the sauna bench.
  • Check Table 1 for minimal safety distances between the heater and the sauna room’s ceiling and walls.
  • Pay attention to placing the heater in a way that prevents dangerous situations during its use. Make sure people do not have to pass it too close when it is hot.
  • Before installation remove the protective film from the steel plate behind the heater.
  • When installing the wall mount, consider the full weight of 143 lb / 65 kg.
Connecting the heater to the power supply
  • Only a certified electrician is allowed to connect the heater to the power supply!
  • The main cable input is located in the center of the heater, 10 cm above the lower edge.
  • The power cable of the heater must meet the requirements of UL 62 in US and CSA 49 in Canada. It is forbidden to use a non-heat-resistant cable with PVC isolation.
  • The joint box must be waterproof and it must be located up to 50 cm from the floor.
  • We recommend connecting the unit to the mains without an earth-leakage circuit breaker.
  • Check Table 2 for the maximum current intensity in the cross-sectional area of the cable and circuit breaker.

  • Open the cover of the heater’s electrical box.
  • Attach the power cable on the terminal block according to the circuit diagram.
  • Close the cover.
  • Fix the cable on the output with a cable strap.
  • Install the heater on the wall frame. Make sure it remains securely attached to the wall.
  • DROP heater requires 121 lb / 55 kg of 2-3.9 in / 5-10 cm stones.
  • Read more about how to stack the stones correctly.
