In order for the steam room in the bath to be used as efficiently as possible, it must be properly insulated. Therefore, they use different insulation for the bath, depending on the material of the building structures. Let's talk about the advantages of thermal insulation, the main types of insulation materials, the features of using a thermal insulator in a brick, expanded clay concrete and wooden building.
Manufacturers offer a wide range of insulation
The steam room and the entire bath are insulated not only because of the cold winters. A well-insulated building will also quickly heat up from a melted stove. However, when insulating a building, it is taken into account that different building structures are thermally insulated in different ways. During this process, insulating layers are created that differ in structure.
Insulation of the steam room and the entire bath allows:
Usually a steam room in a bath is insulated from the inside. This is a proven option for thermal insulation of building structures. Thanks to insulation, the service life of the entire structure is increased. The use of high-quality thermal insulation will allow the owner to carry out repair work less often.
A proven option for insulation is the internal thermal insulation of the steam room
Note! You always have to carry out additional insulation of the building structures of the bath, if the building was originally erected in violation of the technology. In addition, improperly folded stoves are often found that cool quickly. In this case, it is thermal insulation that will reduce heat loss through walls, ceiling and floor.
Of course, now straw is no longer used to insulate buildings. After all, it is an ineffective heat insulator compared to modern materials. Instead, they use a heater for the steam room, created in high-tech production. Manufacturers produce it in large quantities.
Note! The thickness of the heat insulator for the steam room is not regulated. However, the approximate values of the material are indicated in SP 50.13330.2012. Experts advise using them as minimum values when calculating the required thickness of the heat insulator. It is recommended that you do not decrease the specified values in the set of rules.
