Warming baths: principles, materials, milestones

Recently again becomes relevant construction and insulation of the bath on its own site.If previously used for heat preservation widespread and cheap (sometimes even free) moss, linen and felt, but now to replace these materials come modern synthetic: foam, aluminum foil, mineral wool and others.The main requirements to the materials - a high degree of vapor and thermal insulation, chemical and physical stability, durability.

Warming bath is necessary for its full use.Without insulation it for a long time warming up and cooling down quickly, and to maintain the required temperature in the room leaves a lot of energy.A steam room with a well made insulation does not require excessive overhead: heats up quickly and retains heat for a long time at the right level.

started warming bath, in any case, one can not ignore the issue vapor barrier.Devices suitable for its aluminum foil, roofed over foam or mineral wool.It is only slightly warms the room, but it helps to keep a long time intact materials that

make up the design.To kill two birds with one stone, you can use insulating material Ā«ISOVER Sauna" 50 mm thick, which not only protects the rails from moisture, but also reduces heat loss in half.

What to insulate?

Warming bath - a complex process.To determine where it is necessary to make every effort necessary to understand what is the most powerful conductor of heat.On the one hand, the heat rises to the ceiling, so it is necessary to make it impermeable, and the other - much depends on the materials composing the structure.Even the walls of the bar are absolutely the same thickness can vary greatly in the degree of heat, if one is to the outside, and the second is adjacent to a waiting room.Due to the fact that the temperature difference between the steam and the larger street, just outside the wall will be the "weak link" that need to be strengthened.


Wall insulation bath takes place in several stages: first, spread a crate, which is attached to a heat-insulating material.If this layer of foil, all joints are carefully glued between layers of aluminum tape.Further reinforcing bars prefixed thickness of 20-25 mm, providing an air gap between the insulation and the interior trim.The last step is to install a lining or panels.

works is similar to the ceiling, while the floor has its own peculiarities.Primarily, it is important that the cold is not pushed through the slot in the base, so no holes in it should not be.Under floor trim can put any inert thermal insulator.

One of the most dangerous areas in terms of heat losses are the windows.Usually, in the bath are not many, but it is better to use instead of the usual plastic frames gemetichnye windows.

How warm bath all the rules

  1. Set the site that you want to warm first.
  2. Select the appropriate material.Roofing felt, roofing felt and asphalt for our purposes is not suitable: when heated, they emit pollutants and emit a foul odor.The rationale is to use foam, glass wool, expanded polystyrene, mats URSA, jute with the addition of flax fiber, red building moss or penoterma.The thermal conductivity of a material is usually indicated on the label.Accordingly, the lower it is, the lower layer is required to achieve the desired result.
  3. Leave an air gap before finishing.

Following this algorithm, walk all the weak points, and then you can proudly show off to the heat that reigns in your steam room.
