Specificity door to the bath
The bath should be at least two doors, one of them - the front, the other - leads to the steam room.Operation of doors in a steam room is marked by characteristics.The product should not be heated, deformed by increased hum
why the door to the bath must be deaf wood, made by old Russian technology.In the Turkish baths, where there is a wholly-owned humidity, welcomed the installation of glass doors.
In dry saunas and baths that "the white" fueled, it is advisable to install single-leaf doors.If you are a fan of smoky Russian bath, it is best to make the double bathhouse door.It is enough to lift a flap to get rid of the smoke room.This does not mean that for conventional steam rooms are not suitable double doors.It depends entirely on your desire!
Catching manufacturing doors in a steam room with your hands, you should pay attention to its size.To better keep the heat, the door to the bath to do much less than for homes:
- door height from the floor to the sauna should be no more than 150-170 centimeters;
- width of the door to the bath should be 60-70 centimeters;
- threshold should be higher than 15 centimeters.
better to put in a steam room single leaf doors that open outward.In the manufacture of doors with their hands, remember that between the washing room and steam room threshold is not put.The gap between the floor and the door should be around 5 centimeters.
materials for the manufacture of doors
to manufacture a door that leads into the steam room, it is advisable to take these kinds of wood like basswood, aspen and alder.It can be applied to softwood, but in this case it is necessary to treat the surface of the material that was not allocated resin.It would take such basic materials: Strapping - timber sizes 65 to 80 mm for leaf - sexual stable planks of pine 36 to 120 millimeters, for cladding - wall paneling of 12 by 96 millimeters.
Besides wooden planks for doors to the bath is quite possible to take other modern materials.Depending on what style it is planned to issue the interior, it is used more often the door of heat-resistant plastic or glass.
The advantages of glass door for a bath set.They are durable, not exposed to a large extent influenced by the temperature and moisture, do not need special care.In addition, the bathroom door made of artificial materials are presented in a huge variety of colors, finishes and patterns.These doors are only one of the parameters of inferior wood products - they are completely devoid of any beneficial or curative properties for the human body.
Production of doors in the bath
You already know what requirements must meet the door for Russian bath on the wood and the Finnish sauna, you select the material for the manufacture of doors and calculate the size of the product.Now is the time to begin the practical part of the work process.Our step by step guide will help you make a door for a bath as soon as possible.
Piping wooden door for the bath should be carried out in the following sequence:
- is milled grooves in the bars with a hand mill and end mill.First taken to carry out the roughing process tolerances on the side of 1-2 mm for further finishing milling in size.Groove for lining should have a depth of 10 millimeters and a width of 60 millimeters and groove boards - a depth of 15 millimeters and a width of 26 millimeters.
- Hacksaw be cut along the length of the horizontal sections in size 570 mm.Then both ends of milled seats for docking them with a vertical profile binding.It is necessary to cut the vertical profiles of strapping in the size of 1800 mm.
- going frame, makes the final layout, and finishing in milled grooves all sizes.Again going to the frame, and exhibited angles are measured at the joints with the web bathhouse door dimensions in the seats.
Canvas for bathhouse door decided to make in the following order:
- first need to prepare and take extreme board a plane flush with the stud body board.
- cloth to collect on the flat surface of the grooved boards should start with the first board by the method of "thorn in the groove".The width of the door leaf must be greater than the width of the door on the size of the width of the board.Next is to make a pencil mark at several points on the board at a desired width dimension and connect them by a straight line.Naturally, leave the admission for final processing.The size of the door to the bath as previously defined.
- circular saw to cut along the last board.
- After that final assembly of the web.Fix the flat bar on the table and collect the door leaf thorn in the groove, causing pre-PVA glue.
- After installing the last board should fix the base plate to the table with a gap along the long sides of the door leaf and wooden wedges to pull your board completely to each other.To plane bulge, you need to put it on a flat, chipboard and preload clamps.
- Check the quality of the assembly after the glue dries.If there are gaps on the opposite plane, they should be repaired with glue sawdust.Skins and planers remove all irregularities with blank canvases.
- With roulette, line and polygon outlines need to draw a web to the bathhouse door with length 1720 mm and a width of 570, based on a line adjacent to the ends of the support bar and the outer face of the first wooden planks.
- circular saw cut on the drawn lines and smooth out a skin cut site.
- on to make around the perimeter of the leaf symmetrical veneer width 15 and a thickness of 26 millimeters.You must use the router and base strips that passed along to fix the treated side of the bathhouse door.Strips should be set in such a way that their upper faces are located horizontally and in the same plane.The plane of the door leaf must stay in parallel to the upper faces, because they are the support for the router.Place the router on the base strip, mills in several passes lengthwise spike.
- when handled the entire path, turn fabric and perform the same operation, but with the difference that the caliper is necessary to control the thickness of the stud (26 millimeters).It is important to make it a little more for a possible revision of his landing in the harness.
Sheathing leaf can be done during binding.But it is more convenient to do for this technique:
- Take blank lining that has a length slightly longer line that extends at an angle of 45 degrees from one long side of the door leaf to another.Secure it with screws in the slot to the web.Further installation of the boards made of lining fabric and covered all.
- must then otchertit circuit installed on the casing so that the lining does not interfere with the harness to hold.Number each battens from the top down.Disassemble and a hacksaw, cut the lines held by both sides of the door leaf.
- Then again, should set the cut workpiece in place and fasten each element to the canvas three screws into the groove at an acute angle of 45 degrees.Extreme board needs to be fixed with screws from above in such a way as to harness hid their heads.To avoid cracked groove, drill holes in it is recommended to drill a 0.5 mm larger than the diameter of the screw.
Assembling the door to the bath or sauna is reduced to mounting around the door leaf trim.Previously prepared blanks should be inserted in the door leaf spikes on all sides with a slight interference fit or without play.If necessary, frezeruem or spike, or groove.It is important to exclude the gaps between them.
Check the assembly and proceed to the final stage - seal the docking place with white glue and screws fasten the harness.Self punch made with the side faces of tying into the web, keeping a step that is 200-250 mm, and in such a way that they do not interfere with installing the hinges (3 pieces).In addition, the need to fasten the corners and strapping elements themselves.Lower profile strapping prokleivat not necessary.This technique is useful to upgrade or repair the door.
side of the door, which will be exposed to vapors, steam insulating layer should protect, and already on top of it the door can be clad with thin boards.Good water-resistant door also obtained from the door frame, lined on both sides with glass-fiber sheets.Fill the space between these sheets and insulate the door to the bath can be foam or mineral wool bituminized.
To avoid getting burned at the entrance to the steam room, locks and door handles are made of wood.For handles fit small bars that are left over from the construction of the sauna.Show imagination, of which will make different shapes that correspond to the general style of the interior decoration.Instead, you can use wood or bone horns that will give your bath on the wood "hunting" look.
Castles and locks should be installed in the top and bottom of the door to retain heat in the steam room.This constipation is also necessary to make out of wood.Upper constipation is usually carried out in the form of a bolt or bolt for the lower latch pick usual metal hook.Such an arrangement provides an excellent fit to the door jamb, and a good seal helps keep heat in the bath.
In no case can not be installed on the front door to the sauna and the steam room door locks British collapsing because it prevents the ability to logically be accidentally locked in the hot room.Air
better to hang on the door hinges are made of stainless materials.Ideally set on the door in the bath brass hinges.As a rule, only two loops to secure the door.If the manufacture of door you choose hard wood or want to achieve maximum tightness, you can set the door to the bath for three metal hinges.As in the sauna room doors open to the outside, the possibility of accidentally burned on metal hinges almost impossible.
Installing doors in the sauna
important factor when installing the bathhouse door to the steam room arrangement is considered to be the threshold.Advantageously, the height should be 15 centimeters, although perfectly acceptable from 10 to 30 centimeters.With regard to the door that separates the washing compartment of the steam room, the threshold is not necessarily to do.
Furthermore, at the bottom of the floor between the door and decided to make a small gap for security purposes, which also serves as an additional opening for the admission of fresh air to the steam room.The height of the gap is usually not more than 5 centimeters.
installation of doors at the entrance to the bath should be done with the help of okosyachki using grooves and ridges in obsade on logs to avoid distortion door shrinkage of the wooden structure.Boxes for the doorway to the bath is made of thick rectangular or square bars.Install it in a way opening the rack.
Within the walls of the bath combs are cut down and make nests on the lower horizontal beam, which then insert the rods, which are selected in advance spikes.At the bottom of the doorway lay thick massive log that will be used for arranging the threshold in the future.If
room built of stone or brick, then input the doorway box must be more massive than the inner door.For this purpose, most board width 10 and a thickness of 5-6 centimeters.The depth of quarters selected from the blank should correspond to the thickness of the bath door.Width quarters on average should reach 1.5-3 cm.Connection made using spikes.
Assemble and install the box in a doorway in such a way that the door opens outward to the bath.Level the box and secure to the wall.When fitting the door is recommended whenever possible to achieve a snug fit over the threshold and jambs.
