Bath - a special place of rest and set silBanya has become one of our characters, has won the hearts of almost every citizen of the former Soviet Union. This is a special room where you can communicate well and have a rest and improve their health. Naturally, this "special" place, and requires special care. Materials for building baths must meet certain requirements as Steam - creates a rather "extreme environment": inside a high temperature, and the outside - frost. The set of materials for ordinary houses, simply can not cope with the load and the "contrast" high and low temperatures.
What are the requirements to materials of the ceiling in the steam room of Russian bath
First of all, it is necessary to understand the requirements of the ceiling. What are the properties and characteristics it should have?
The ceiling in the bath should be durable and retain heat well
- The very first requirement - this ceiling should well keep heat in the steam room itself. This is logical, if not in the room will be warm, the steam will go beyond the sauna, what is the meaning of this bath?
- The next mandatory parameter - strength. Of course, this applies not only baths, steam rooms, or other similar premises, but did not mention this point it would be wrong. The ceiling should perfectly protect the building and the room from external influences - it is his destiny.
- A heater in the bath should not get wet.
- The ceiling should serve you for a long time. At this point you need to pay special attention. It should take into account the fact that the qualitative ceiling - quite expensive, which not everyone can "afford". If even a person with average income will accumulate at the ceiling for its steam, then over the next few years it is unlikely to be able to afford to purchase materials for the ceiling and install it once again. That is why a ceiling set for the ages.
To be sure that your ceiling is qualitative, not buy ceilings from trusted manufacturers. In addition, there is a possibility to buy a fake, so it is best to contact the manufacturer directly and order the necessary materials.
Vapor barrier ceiling in the bath

For example, if men growth of 180 cm, the ceiling height should be 2.5 meters. Of course, you can make the ceiling above, but this makes no sense, because even people above 2 meters will be great to feel like a bath.
