Frameless glass for bespoke steam shower room
Showerpower recently helped to make a Hampshire couple’s steam shower room ideas a reality with custom-made glass and specialist expertise.
Our client, a retired engineer, had spent many years building a home where he and his wife could enjoy their retirement. He had designed and constructed two luxurious steam shower areas featuring made to measure Corian shower trays with matching wall cladding. All that remained for him to do was find a company to supply and install the steam-tight glass enclosures he envisaged.
He knew this would require a specialist glass company with the relevant technically-skilled team who could work closely with him to achieve the exact result he wanted. That’s why he chose to hire Showerpower.
Specialist glass expertise for steam rooms
Glass steam room enclosures are often sizeable and can present complex condensation and ventilation challenges. Our specialists can advise you on the best combination of layout, configuration, products and finishes to ensure complete success.
One of the finished enclosures shown here, features a bespoke glass door, one fixed glass panel and an operable transom above the door.
Venting steam shower rooms with glass transoms
Steam rooms must have a perfectly sealed, floor-to-ceiling airtight construction to allow the steam to accumulate. However, ventilation is key in a steam room. So instead of bringing the door all the way to the ceiling, it is advisable to incorporate an operable transom above the door of the glass enclosure.
The glass transom acts like a vent and can be tilted open to release hot steam or kept tightly closed to keep the steam in.
The moveable overhead glass transom also allows ventilation to the area when the steam room is not in use. This enables the space to dry quickly, avoiding the build-up of mould or mildew.
