Hi all
Hoping I can get some questions answered for a new steam shower I want to build, new construction.

size: 7 ft long, 4 ft wide, 7'6" ceiling hgt. - Frame-less glass doors, exhaust fan just outside the shower door

1) do I need a transom?
2) I have read that installing two steam heads instead of one will decrease noise and fill shower with steam quicker and avoid hot spots - True?
3) is a sloped ceiling really necessary?

Thank you

Hello there!
Let's start with the last question first-is a sloped ceiling really necessary. Yes, we strongly recommend this as its purpose is to prevent moisture from dripping on the bather.
As for your other two questions, it is a matter of preference. If you feel comfortable having a transom, then it is fine. You will just have to make sure the height is appropriate for you and other bathers to easily reach for open and close. Regarding having two steam heads for decreased noise and quicker steam, this will depend on which manufacture you are considering using.
There are many options when it comes to building a steam room. Having all your facts and work with experienced industry professionals is best practice. I would recommend giving us a call and speak with one of our specialists to review all your specifications and help you build the best bathing environment.
