(a) sauna heater unit intended for fixed installation in a special room that is built or assembled in the field to conform to the manufacturer's size specifications; or
(b) combination of a sauna heater or heater units and a prefabricated, factory-built room or cabinet in which the assembled combination may be specified for field installation, or that may be supplied with a power supply cord and intended to be fastened in place or located in a dedicated space. The room may be arranged so that it can be taken apart for shipment.
