Slip Resistant Flooring
When designing your steam bathing sanctuary, consider slip resistant materials for all steam shower flooring and areas where one may walk. This would include the surface material of a lower level seat of a two-level steam shower seat design.
Steam shower enclosures require a floor drain and appropriately pitched floor. The floor of a steam shower will never get hot to the touch except directly beneath the steam outlet head. Typical floor materials consist of stone, tile, concrete and even fiberglass. Always consult with your installer on recommended steam shower floor installation methods and materials.
Steam shower floor care will not differ from the floor of a standard shower. For methods on cleaning or appropriateness of use, always consult the manufacturer.
Note: As with any wet surface, always exercise caution when walking on a steam shower floor as it will be slippery when in use or wet.
