No one can predict whether this winter will be warm or cold, but in case of frost, you should have an idea of how to insulate the door in the bath so that the heat accumulated in it does not go anywhere. The problem is that the more heat in the room, the faster the cold air seeps into the room.
As a rule, after leaving the steam room for the dressing room, people want to wipe themselves with a towel, dry off, relax and get the much-desired comfort. But having a poorly insulated door, you can forget about such comfort, because a stream of cold winter draft will blow on a person’s legs, while the rest of the person’s body has not yet cooled. All this can end with a cold, and no one likes to lie down with a temperature and take pills. That is why, in order to combat penetrating cold air and prevent blowing, you should correctly and competently approach the insulation of the door to the bath.

Who would have thought that it is possible to insulate the door to the bathhouse, which will not let the cold inside and prevent frost from accumulating between the door leaf and the door block, in just a couple of hours!
A frame of 20 mm bars is nailed to the door. The outer side of the nailed frame should extend from the edge of the door at a rebate distance of approximately 15 mm. To all edges of the nailed frame, attach the insulation folded in half using aluminum nails, so that the edges of the insulation extend beyond the edge of the bar by 15 mm. In an empty place inside the frame, you can also put material for insulation. Next, plywood is laid on the frame, suitable in width and height to the frame, and nailed with small nails.
How does it work.
At a time when the door is closed, the insulation is located between the door block and the door leaf, and bends outward, as a result of which the air from the street cannot penetrate inside. At the same time, the insulation is not pinched, since an air gap forms between it and the door leaf. This layer is able to keep the door dry and it will not allow frost to accumulate. The whole work takes from 1.5 to 2 hours – this is the time that is worth spending to keep the heat inside the room and so that people can fully enjoy the bath procedures, protect themselves from unwanted drafts and fully enjoy the result of their work.
