Title: Lights rated for steam shower
Post by: Peanut on October 14, 2009, 09:46:02 AM
I have gone about doing quite a bit of research on UL listings, however have not come across a specific rating for a steam application. My contractor states that a "wet" rating from UL is sufficient. Is that true? Are there no specific lights rated for "steam"?

There is no rating for steam when it comes to lighting. However, 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 (http://www.steamsaunabath.com/residential-steam/lighting/)!
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.
