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 bathhouse 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 in 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 down a person’s legs, while the rest of the person’s body has not cooled down yet. All this can end with a cold, and no one likes to lie with a temperature and take pills. That is why, in order to combat the penetrating cold air and prevent blowing, it is necessary to correctly and competently approach the insulation of the door to the bath.

Who would have thought that insulating the door to the bathhouse, which will not let the cold inside the room and will not allow frost to accumulate between the door leaf and the door block, can be done in just a couple of hours!
A frame made of 20 mm bars is nailed onto the door. The outer side of the nailed frame should extend from the edge of the door at a rebate removal distance of approximately 15 mm. The insulation folded in half should be attached to all edges of the nailed frame using aluminum nails, so that the edges of the insulation protrude 15 mm beyond the edge of the bar. You can also put insulation material in the empty space inside the frame. Next, plywood is laid on the frame, suitable in width and height to the frame, and nailed down with small nails.
How does it work.
While the door is closed, the insulation is between the door block and the door leaf, and is bent outward, as a result of which 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 in order to keep the warmth 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.
