Vapor Proof Lighting

(See Products)

Lighting is an important part of a steam bathing environment and should always be considered when constructing a steam shower. Besides the obvious safety consideration, lighting allows for maximum control of steam shower visual ambiance. When on, light will reflect on the steam or airborne vapor particles creating a visually unique and pleasing rolling mist.

See some Steam Shower Lights in our image gallery!

A ceiling mounted light constructed of solid metal, with a glass or polycarbonate lens operating on low-voltage electric and rated for a wet environment is always recommended. Lighting is simply the easiest and most practical way to begin altering the mood of a steam shower. If possible, consider installing your steam shower fixture or fixtures on a dimmer switch located outside the bathing environment to dial in on the desired mood.

Depending on your budget or steam enclosure size, consider the addition of wall mounted, colored, or multiple light fixtures. The visual affect lighting affords a steam shower environment is simply unknown by most. Yet every individual who has driven in fog realizes the unique perspective offered by high beam, low beam and fog lights. Steam bathing is about warm soothing mist, but is also about the pleasant atmosphere, feeling, and aura lighting provides.

The SteamSaunaBath team has searched the globe over to secure the finest vapor proof light fixtures available! We have rigorously tested every facet of these lights including ease of installation, simplicity of light bulb replacement, durability, operation, and aesthetics. We've even forced 2 pounds of pressurized steam (residential generators operate at less than a pound!) directly at the lens and trim seal for 1 hour and found absolutely no evidence of moisture penetration. When time permits, check out these amazing Vapor Proof Lights!

Do not forgo the creation of a steam shower in the absence of available lighting! The SteamSaunaBath team has conducted hundreds of tests with steam and available lighting. Bathing area lighting diffused through a shower door is sufficient to enjoy the pleasures a steam shower affords.
