The Frigidarium is a cold environment that is normally accessed at the end of the wellness program in warm-lukewarm environments.

Carmenta has created the cold cabin, a super cold room that will be kept between -5 and -10° C to guarantee even the greatest sauna enthusiasts the prospect of diving into the right combination of air and cold typical of the Nordic countries to generate on body a pleasant general toning.

A sensory experience capable of giving vigor and well-being at any time. In creating this elegant and exclusive Cold Cabin, Carmenta chose Biloba Evo hydraulic hinges for the opening and closing of the glass door.
