The most important attribute of any steam room is the so-called canopy, the comfort of which depends on the comfort of bath procedures (including their safety). A competent approach to the choice of material and design of the regiments will make it possible to turn this functional element into a worthy decoration of the interiors of the steam room.
Before you make a canopy in a bath, first of all you should familiarize yourself with the existing designs, as well as decide on the material from which you will make it.
When choosing a material, you should take into account the characteristic features various tree species, as well as the specific conditions of their practical application. To ensure comfortable operating conditions for the wood used for the manufacture of the regiments, the following requirements are met:
Of all the wood species we know, these varieties such as cedar, linden, alder and aspen quite satisfy these requirements. When choosing a specific material from the specified series, as a rule, linden is preferred.
Dimensions of the shelf for the bath
Before making the canopy for Baths with their own hands, it is necessary to determine the order of its individual elements, which will depend on the ease of operation of the entire facility as a whole. There are several options for the manufacture of regiments in the double room, the choice of which is determined by the specific operating conditions. Let us consider each of these structures in more detail:
After installation the canopy will need to worry about protecting their surface from destruction, as well as giving the finished structure a more attractive look. But before you treat the surface of the shelves with any of the known methods - you must carefully polish them with a special grinding tool. When choosing a protective decorative composition should take into account the fact that not all known types of wood coatings can be used in conditions of elevated temperatures.
Thus, typical paintwork impregnations are completely unacceptable for steam rooms, since at high temperatures they form a film on the surface of wood.
It is for this reason that special compositions and impregnations are used in the steam rooms that are resistant to high temperatures and moisture and do not form films. As a sample of such a coating can be considered a universal composition of the brand "Supi Saunavaha" (Tikkurila), made on the basis of natural wax.
