Inquiry:
I have bought all my steam room products  and now the last thing I need to do is put in the shower/steam room door. I read somewhere that there needs to be a 1" gap at the bottom of the door to allow freah air to enter the steam room. That dosent sould right to me. Is there a need for an air supply while in the steam room?
my room is 5' x 6'.

Your instinct is correct.  There should not be a gap at the bottom of the door.  You want it sealed as much as you can to contain the heat & humidity.

Now if you were talking about a Sauna room, that's a different story.

but if i stay in there a long time with the door sealed isn't there a danger of oxygen deprivation? I think i heard that somewhere

We get that question often and no worries.  Oxygen is rich in the atmosphere.
And the steam is good for opening up your airways.
