Warming of the floor in the bath : Materials for insulation and step by step instructions

bath - is not just a place where you can wash clean.Bath for the Russian people - a kind of club, even if you want - the sanctuary.But even such a sacred place not worth it to be cold and uncomfortable.Russian bath should keep the heat perfectly, keeping it for a long time.And wash in a room that instantly loses temperature is also not very nice.That is why a good thermal insulation of buildings in the bath becomes a very important task in its construction.Insulated in all parts of the bath is necessary: ​​the walls and ceiling, and especially - the floor.

High humidity and temperature are constantly present when using bath dictate a careful approach to the selection of materials used for thermal insulation of floors.In a typical room, do not have such extreme conditions, you can use almost any insulation based on mineral oil.But when the floor insulation in the bath by experienced builders recommend the use of heat-insulating material with a cellular structure.The most suitable material to meet all the requirements of all types is the foam.It is widely used for insulation in floors with high humidity.

There are several approaches to the question of what mothers should arrange the floor in the bath rooms.Thus, it can be made of concrete, and wood, and can.When insulating floors of all types, there are some general rules, which we'll tell you.

carry out work on the following algorithm:

  1. We perform dismounting of the floorboards and skirting boards.We recommend that you sign the recorded elements, in order not to get lost in the further installation.
  2. produce verification of wooden elements.Scrollsaw damaged areas and replace them by fresh bars of identical dimensions.
  3. Building up the lower edge of the lag bars of smaller dimension, creating support for rough floors.
  4. Using cheap timber form a rough floor.We reserve the overlap between the joists and boards gap of about a centimeter.
  5. Puts subfloor from scraps of boards, leaving a small gap between them in order to prevent deformation of the floor from the thermal deformation.Trim loose boards laid on joists, not fixing them.
  6. In the case under your bath has a water-saturated soil - forming vapor barrier to protect from the effects of heat insulator nagrevayuschiyhsya groundwater.Vapor barrier should cover the subfloor with the joists.At low levels of groundwater use paroizoliruyuschuyu membrane, but with a high level best to take advantage of waterproofing materials, such as asphalt or the usual roofing material.
  7. The layer of insulation should completely cover the entire floor, grabbing at 15 centimeters, and the wall, forming a kind of "trough."If your waterproofing supplied in a roll - with its plank overlap and fix with adhesive tape strips.To prevent mixing of vapor and waterproofing - sew it stapled to the walls and joists.

  8. Nishi between wooden joists fill insulator, leaving Vecdi top timber and the upper surface of the insulator about 2 centimeters of air venting layer.In that case, if the thickness of the insulator is conveniently situated close to the topcoat - put the crate on top of it to create ventilation.Step lattice should be about 40 centimeters.
  9. adds another moisture barrier, preferably of the membrane material to prevent the ingress of moisture on the insulator.Waterproofing must be between the insulation layer and the crate.
  10. make installation of the floorboards and skirting boards, cut the protruding edges of the waterproofing.

Thermal insulation of concrete floor in the bath should be done after the installation of the roughing screed.We act according to the following algorithm:

  1. place on the rough screed waterproofing.As such, we can apply the usual durable polyethylene.Film spreads across the floor, with a stop at the walls of at least 5 centimeters, the surplus we can then cut off.When using roll material do overlap in the area of ​​10 centimeters, fixing joints with duct tape.
  2. Puts insulating material.As a heater can be used conventional foam.To fix the foam plates forming a frame of wooden beams, fasten them to the floor with screws, self-tapping screws on the dowel plugs.
  3. produce fill foam plates and frame fixing solution, then place on top of reinforcing mesh.The thickness of the screed above the foam sheets must be not less than 2 centimeters.
  4. After drying screed reinforcing fill rough leveling screed.We use self-leveling mixture, the total thickness of the screed above the foam should be as high as 5-8 centimeters.Leveling screed finish needle roller, removing air bubbles.

good option of warming the floor in a stationary bath of warm water will be the device sex.We carry out work in the following way:

  1. Prepare the surface to carry out the installation.Eliminate defects in the floor - chips, ridges and cracks.
  2. placed through the entire surface of thermal insulation material to prevent unnecessary energy consumption.
  3. damping Fix the tape along the walls of the room, preventing deformation of the floor during thermal expansion.
  4. place on the floor of the reinforcing grid, spread the pipe with liquid coolant, avoiding those places where it is not required to heat the floor.The maximum distance from the pipe to the wall should be 10 centimeters.
  5. When laying the pipeline system pipes leave some degree of freedom, ensuring their safety during thermal deformation.
  6. Connect a pipe to the heating system using the inlet and outlet manifolds.Carefully fix the place of the pipe connections using couplings and winding.
  7. Check the operation of the system of warm water floor at a maximum water flow capacity, closely follow the possible leaks.
  8. form a cement screed, first roughing, and then self-leveling When satisfactory test results.
  9. between the screed and the topcoat laid absorbent layer, and then install the final coating.
