NOTE 101 Sauna heating appliances may be of the thermal storage type.

This standard also deals with the safety of electric sauna heating appliances provided with a humidifier unit, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances and 480 V for other appliances. The room air is humidified by evaporating or atomising water.

NOTE 102 A humidifier may be part of a sauna heating appliance or may be incorporated in the sauna heater. The sauna heating appliance or sauna heater may be operated with or without the humidifier.

- appliances intended to be used in locations where special conditions prevail, such as the presence of a corrosive or explosive atmosphere (dust, vapour or gas);

- appliances intended to cause perspiration to only a part of the human body;

- sweating baths where the head of the user remains outside the heated space;
