Vapor Proof Steam Shower Doors
A steam shower door is the entryway to your 10 minute vacation and should be elegantly designed to showcase this sanctuary, keeping the steam in and stress and worries out!
A door constructed for steam shower use should be constructed with superior vapor proof gaskets, tempered safety glass, and custom built for a steam tight seal. SteamSaunaBath always recommends constructing the steam shower door finished opening prior to ordering any vapor proof steam door. Waiting until your tile has been installed to obtain an actual finished opening measurement will almost certainly delay your steam shower completion, however, will guarantee a hassle-free, custom fit! Take our advice...it is much easier to build a steam door to fit a finished opening than to build a finished opening to fit a steam door.
A vapor proof swing (hinged) door is the most common type of door installed in a steam shower. Consider one or two side panels if more glass is desired, or the addition of a hinged top panel for effective, post-steam bath, ventilation. When considering a swing door for your environment, realize that for safety reasons, this door must always open out.
A vapor proof sliding door is less frequently installed, however, equally effective! Consider sliding doors for the generous lighting they afford, flexibility & ease of steam shower entry and convenience of post-steam bathroom ventilation. For the finishing touch, designer frame finishes and glass patterns should be selected to achieve the desired look.

When designing your steam shower, consider using large areas of glass (door, side and top panels). Though glass has a higher heat loss factor than most steam shower wall materials, it contributes wonderfully to your steam shower's ambiance and warms nicely to the touch. Not only is it stylish and befitting your environment, glass allows for outside light, increased depth perception, and aids significantly in the creation of deep, rich, foggy steam!
