Building Code Compliance for Saunas and Steam Rooms

by:Xavier      2020-03-29
Like any major renovation project, adding a sauna or steam room to your home is regulated by the building code of your local building authority.Building codes vary from place to place, but in many places, saunas and steam rooms are subject to special considerations that do not apply to ordinary rooms because they have steam inside.Almost any construction project requires you to obtain a construction permit from the local building authority and to inspect your project during or after the construction.New sauna or steam room is unlikely to be an exception.In addition to the provisions on structural design, fire safety and electrical systems, sauna and steam rooms may also be subject to building code requirements specifically for high-rise buildingsmoisture areas.Before you start work, be sure to consult the specific requirements of your area.The building code generally specifies the type of wall panels that can be used to build bathrooms and other rooms that may be more humid than typical living spaces.Due to the high humidity of sauna and steam rooms, most specifications require wall panels used in construction to be cement boards and cement boards-Gypsum board, not the traditional gypsum board, is even water --Wear-resistant gypsum board.In some areas, the building code may not require the use of wall panels at all, in which case wooden paneling may be connected directly to the bolts of the wall.Building codes include specifications for glass panels in wet areas to reduce the chance of glass breaking and hurting anyone who slips.If the design of a sauna or steam room includes glass on a wall or door, most specifications require glass breakageIf the bottom edge of the glass is less than 60 inch higher than any walking or standing surface, it is a safety glass.The specification usually requires mechanical ventilation in the bathroom and other areas affected by high humidity or humidity.In California, residential regulations require ventilation systems in these areas to be able to move at least 50 cubic feet of air per minute and discharge air directly outside the building.If the room has at least three square feet of glazing and at least half of these windows are open, a mechanical ventilation system is not required.
