Usually a tiled room, with a glass door or enclosure. In many cases combined with a shower. The heat is generated by a steam generator that’s placed outside the room, either in the ceiling, adjoining cupboard or in a dedicated plant room. A Special waterproof ceiling is installed with waterproof downlights. This room has 100% humidity and the standard temperature of such a steam room is in the region of about 45-48°C.
Steam Room Sizes
Any shape and size can be used, one should consider the steam units to be used: 9kw is the unit of choice for smaller rooms. There are 6kw units but hardly installed due to the small volumes they heat up:
9kw – 4 – 7m3 – Single or 3 phase supply
12kw – 8 – 10m3 – Prefer 3 phases but can operate on single
15kw – 9 – 13m3 – 3 phase
18kw – 12 – 16m3 – 3 phase
Rooms with a m3 exceeding 23m3 will require more than one unit.
