How much room do I need for a Steam Room

A Steam Room can be built into an existing room as small as 1.2 x 1.2 m. We can build your Steam Room  as large as you need depending on how many people you need to accommodate at the same time. It also depend if you like to sit up right or be able to lay down relaxing.

Are there special requirements when designing a steam room ?

It is important to not make the ceiling hight too high. As with a sauna room, the heat rises , so we recommend a ceiling hight of 2.1 m and no higher than 2.4 m. We can create a curved ceiling or build a raked ceiling to avoid the water drip on to the users. The steam room have to be fully waterproofed. Timber seating is not recommended.

What materials are used in a Steam Room ?

A Steam Room can be fully tiled,  aluminium benches and aluminium sheeting to walls ceiling can be used, marble, plastic and glass are also materials frequently used.

How long should I stay in the steam room ?

As with the sauna. This will vary with every individual. Stay as long as you enjoy it and feel good. Have a cool shower or dip in the pool and then back in the steam room again. Make sure you drink lots of water to replenish your body.
