Preparation for your Steam Room:
Below are some key points to take into consideration:
- Floor Waste/Drain: An essential item in a steam room is the floor waste/drain due to the high humidity.
- Ceiling Height: For efficiency, it’s recommended a steam room ceiling be lowered to 2300mm. It’s common to rake or curve the ceiling in the room to reduce drips.
- Waterproofing: Complete room is waterproofed ceiling, walls and floor commonly known as Tanking.
- Tiled Floor: The most common flooring used in a Steam room is a non slip tile.
- Steam Room Doors: Must open outwards and have no latches or locks, a door closer or self-closing hinges are recommended to contain steam. Doors in a residential home are commonly frameless glass with a tight 3mm gap top and sides. Commercially doors are usually aluminium framed glass doors closing into an aluminium jamb.
- Wall Finishes: Tiles are the most common finish in a steam room however glass, aluminium sheet and stone can also be used.
- Exhaust fans: If using an exhaust fan in the case of a shower/steam room it is recommended the fan have either a damper or baffle in the ducting or a closing vent/grill so when using as a steam room the duct is closed.
- SAWO steam generator location: Steam generator can be located a maximum of 7m from steam room outlets. Common locations are plant room, laundry, ceiling space, under floor and outside wall (if installed outside a weatherproof cover or box will be required for added protection).
- Services required at SAWO steam generator: Cold water feed, Drainage/Tundish and power supply.
- Steam generator to steam room: ¾ lagged copper steam pipe from generator to supplied chrome steam outlets. Steam outlets are positioned 300mm above finished floor and away from bathers. Supplied SAWO thermostat sensor situated between 1.2-1.5m above finished floor away from steam outlets.
- Control Panel: Supplied control panel is located outside the steam room and is connected to generator with supplied RJ cable.
- Power Supply: Steam generators are hard wired and require a dedicated circuit from the switchboard.
- Lights: Lights in a steam room are usually low voltage and must have an IP65 rating. LED or halogen down lights are commonly used. Light switch must be located outside the Steam Room
