An Introduction To Insignia's Signature Steam Generators.

  Insignia's Signature Steam Generators are a range of high-quality steam generators designed for domestic and commercial use. They are available in various sizes, from 3kw to 18kw, to suit different room sizes and user requirements. These generators are designed to provide a luxurious steam spa experience right in the comfort of your home or business premises.

Health Benefits of Steam Rooms

Steam rooms have been popular for years due to their numerous health benefits. Regular steam room use can help with stress relief, detoxification, alleviating back, neck, and muscle pain, and even addressing skin allergies and respiratory issues such as asthma, bronchitis, and sinusitis. Although ready-made steam showers are available, these steam generators allow you to build your own bespoke steam room.

The Signature range is built with superior quality materials, including a stainless steel construction that ensures a long lifespan. They are equipped with overheat protection technology, sectional heating technology, and low water level protection, making them safe and reliable.

The generators also feature a waterproof touch control panel, allowing you to control all functions inside or outside your steam room. You can set your own temperature and timer for the perfect spa experience.

    The HomeFit System includes a 3kW steam generator and a Bluetooth touch button control panel, designed for rooms up to 125 cubic feet.

    How to Add Steam to Your Existing Shower Unit

    Assess Your Shower: The first step is ensuring that shower cabins are watertight. Steam is simply boiled water, and once it evaporates, it turns back into water droplets that will exit via the waste in the same way the shower water does.

    Make Your Shower Steam Proof: Some structural alterations will be required to make your existing shower "steam proof." This includes ensuring that the shower doors are well-fitted and sealed and that any space between the top of the shower screen and ceiling is enclosed with stud work. All shower walls and the ceiling must be entirely non-porous. Ceramic tiles, marble, shower board, and acrylic are all suitable materials.

    Choose the Right Generator Size: The smallest 3kw steam generator HomeFit system will likely suit many existing showers, provided the interior space is less than 120 cubic feet. The ideal shower tray-to-ceiling height is 7ft, but it should be no more than 8ft.

    How to Add Steam to Your New Shower Unit

    Plan Your Shower: When installing a new shower, you can select shower screens and doors that fit well with good door seals. The area of the room where the shower will go can be constructed in advance to achieve the optimum installation for steam use.

    Steam Proof Your Shower: All walls, floor, and ceiling must be steam and waterproof. While brick or block walls are fine, any walls constructed of plasterboard or fibreboard are best covered in marine ply first. It is recommended that all areas are then covered with a polythene membrane first before tiling.

    Choose the Right Generator Size: The 3kw HomeFit Steam Generator System will be adequate for smaller-size new shower installations. This Bluetooth-enabled system lets you stream music or use the FM radio while enjoying your steam session.

    How to Build a Large Steam Room or Enclosure

    Large Steam Room

    Plan Your Steam Room: When planning a large enclosed area or a separate room for your steam room, the steam and waterproofing requirements are much the same as for a smaller shower unit. The optimum height for the steam to be effective is around 7 feet.

    Steam Proof Your Room: The final interior finish needs to be non-porous, with tiles and marble being ideal. Ask your building supply center for a proper vapor barrier to install before tiling. A bespoke glass steam room door and frame can be acquired, and a floor drain will be required.

    Choose the Right Generator Size: The heavy-duty Signature steam generators come in sizes from 7.5kw to 18kw. The size you need will depend on the total cubic feet of space of the intended steam room area. Use the Metric Converter and Online Calculator to determine your ideal size steam unit.

    Remember, safety is paramount when installing a steam generator. Always use qualified electricians and plumbers throughout the installation process.

    7. Exhaust Fan (TL004): Mainly intended for commercial installations, this accessory allows for quick dispersal of the steam from the steam room, allowing it to be fresh and ready for subsequent use.
