A steam shower is a concept born from the convectional shower enclosure but modernised to become a spa environment whilst offering all the same attributes as a standard shower enclosure. Each shower is built as a standalone unit and is self-contained with an in-built steam function providing the ability to transform the enclosure into a steam room. Being a self-contained enclosure, the steam is held within the shower preventing water vapour damage to the rest of your bathroom."
In a steam shower, rather than using hot water, a steam generator is used to generate steam that is then used to humidify the space. All our steam shower cubicles are equipped with digital controls that allow the user to turn on the steam, which in turn activates an electronic valve that causes cold water to be pumped into the steam generator. The generator then heats the water, causing it to boil, and transfers it to a steam head, which causes the scabin to be filled with warm, calming steam.
The Insignia Creative Team has developed a simple and innovative way to infuse the steam in your Insignia steam shower. Essential aromatherapy oils from Insignia can de added to special oil diffuser pads, these are then inserted in the newly developed steam guard, which is fitted at the steam outlet within the shower. As the steam passes through the steam guard and the oil diffuser pads it infuses the steam with the fragrance of the chosen oil. Insignia provide aromatherapy infusion kits for all steam products as well as a selection of essential oils and diffuser pads to give your showering experience that little extra touch of luxury.
Across the Insignia range of showers*, most models now come with the innovative chromatherapy lighting system. This feature allows you to bathe the inside of your shower enclosure with vibrant or soothing lighting to match your mood. The lighting system is contained within the shower itself and can be controlled and adjusted from the shower control panel. Select the colour you desire or slowly scroll through the built-in colour spectrum. A truly different way to enhance your showering experience.
Insugnia offer three types of sauna. 1. Traditional Saunas that will heat up the air around you, water is poured onto heated sauna stones to create steam and increase humidity. 2. Far Infrared Saunas that will provide large wavelength and invisible light energy which penetrate deep within the body. 3. Hybrid Saunas which are a combination of both Traditional Saunas and Far Infrared Saunas offing the best of both worlds.
An infrared sauna heats up your body directly using a far infrared light source, without heating up the atmosphere around you creating a more pleasant environment. A traditional sauna will heat up the air around you, water is poured onto heated sauna stones to create steam and increase humidity. For more far infrared sauna information please click here.
