Know The Difference

TRADITIONAL STEAM ROOMS

Historically, steam rooms have been constructed with various forms of tile using ceramic or some form of stone. These tile materials, including the grout and mortar components, are highly porous. It only takes a few days for organic material-matter such as mold, mildew, bacteria and various forms of viral matter-to flourish within the pores of this material in a steam room environment. Dry saunas, on the other hand, typically maintain average temperatures of around 180 degrees, a temperature considerably higher than the maximum survivable temperature (140 degrees) of most virus and influenza strains. Saunas made of cedar also offer the added benefit of natural resistance to mold and mildew. Because the source of heat in a steam room is in the moisture, temperatures within steam rooms are typically between 105 to 110 degrees. The result is a warm, wet and porous environment, ideal for the harvesting of all types of harmful organic matter.

HYBRID STEAM ROOMS

The hybrid steam room uses sanitary and energy efficient alternatives to the traditional tile steam room. These hybrid steam rooms are already popping-up in high-profile clubs such as Gold's Gym and the YMCA, as well as the new Washington Nationals Ballpark. Gold's Gym in Loveland, Colo., opened its doors in December of 2006, and according to owner Lynn Mecham, "the hybrid steam rooms are the cleanest part of the gym-almost no maintenance on our part and the members consistently comment on how clean they are." Many clubs today are opting to convert existing tile rooms into the hybrid-panel construction to bypass health risks and maintenance challenges. "We could not keep up with member complaints," says Shane Riffle, YMCA director for Boise, Idaho.

STERILE, GREEN AND VIRTUALLY MAINTENANCE FREE

Bruce Carter of Optimal Design Architecture in Weston, Fla., a leading fitness facility design firm, says that the unique panel design systems of the new hybrid rooms address nearly all the problems related to traditional tile steam rooms. "Traditional steam rooms typically require deep cleaning on a daily basis, and within just a couple of years grout deteriorates, requiring replacement-leading to the need to re-tile every 4 to 6 years. Hybrid steam systems, on the other hand, sterilize automatically every night and only need to be wiped down with basic eco-friendly cleaning products. For the benefit of our clients, and our clients' clients, we no longer spec tile rooms." Eliminating daily use of harsh chemicals is in line with today's movement towards more eco-friendly business practices.


In addition to nonporous design, hybrid steam rooms come with an advanced corona-discharge sterilization system that automatically eliminates all organic matter (mold, mildew, fungus and viruses) by the infusion of O3. "At night, our cleaning crews simply press the button on the generator, and the rooms are perfectly clean by morning," says Mecham.

Am-Finn Sauna and Steam room company is the original innovator and exclusive manufacturer of the Advanced Hybrid Steam Room (AHSR). We provide commercial steam room installation, corporate wellness steam room, turnkey steam room and custom steam room installation services. Advanced Hybrid Steam Rooms combine a unique construction and material approach with advanced self-cleaning (PowerZone) technology to make them the most hygienic and efficient steam room in the industry. The AHSR cuts energy costs by up to 50% and eliminates the need for harsh cleaning chemicals and retiling. Today, Advanced Hybrid Steam Rooms are the preferred choice for architects and club owners- citing tile rooms as things of a bygone era. Today the AHSR is in use by top corporate wellness centers and professional sport franchises alike including the Morgan Stanley Corporate Fitness Center and the Washington Nationals baseball team. 

Cost Efficient
Am-Finn Advanced Hybrid Steam Rooms© are up to 50% more energy efficient than stone and tile and up to 30% more energy efficient than ceramic tile steam rooms. This translates to hundreds of dollars in savings per year.

Sanitary
Tile and grout used in traditional steam rooms are porous and therefore harbor and promote the growth of molds and bacteria which leads to the ‘musty’ smell commonly associated with tile steam rooms. The acrylic interior of an Advanced Hybrid Steam Room© combined with the PowerZone 4000 ozone sterilizer prevents mold and bacteria from growing, leaving the AHSR© clean and fresh for your use.

Maintenance
Traditional tile steam rooms require daily cleaning of the tile and grout in order to keep the environment clean. Despite daily cleaning, the nature of the material used in tile rooms lead to grout discoloration and deterioration. Am-Finn Advanced Hybrid Steam Rooms© on the other hand are virtually maintenance free, needing only a weekly wipe down with a standard household cleaner for plastic/acrylic shower enclosures.

Installation
A traditional tile steam room installation can take several days to construct and can be quite costly. A typical Am-Finn AHSR© can be assembled in one day and does not require costly waterproofing or excessive room preparation; all we need is an open framed room and a sloped floor. Contact us for more information about sauna and steam room cost and installation services.

Ozone FAQs

What is Ozone?
Ozone (O3), also known as ‘Activated Oxygen’, contains three atoms of oxygen, as opposed to the two we normally breathe. Ozone exists in our earth’s atmosphere as a protective layer that protects us from harmful UV rays of the sun.

What is its life span?
Ozone is extremely unstable and has a short lifespan. It will break up into oxygen in 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the temperature at the time. It is also very susceptible to heat which converts it to oxygen. It also cannot be stored and must be generated on site and used instantly.

How does it smell?
Ozone has natural/grass/earthy smell. The ‘fresh& clean‘ smell that we notice after a thunder storm is actually nature’s creation of ozone. Ozone is nature’s way of purifying and disinfecting the air of our environment.

Is it safe to use?
Ozone is the safest and most powerful oxidant known today. It performs 3,000 times faster than chlorine as a bactericide and 5 times faster than ultra-violet rays for air and water treatment. Ozone, as an oxidant, decomposes contaminants or chemically alters them so that they are harmless to humans.
