Steam Shower Frames: The supporting beams of a steam shower are typically made of aluminum. Aluminum is widely used because of it strength and light weight. The bathtub and shower trays that make up the bottom of many steam showers are typically constructed of a stainless steal frame. It is important that steam showers have both a sturdy base and strong supporting beams. This is a must when shopping for a steam shower. Beware of cheaper models that have plastic supports, these don't have nearly the strength of aluminum and the finish can be scratched off easily.
Some shower faucets have the pressure/anti-scald valve built into the mixing valve and others have a separate valve completely (not built into the unit at all). Replacement unit must be exact, so take faucet manufacturer's name and unit model number or old valve.
Certifications: There are many Safety certifications such as ETL, CE, UL, and ISO-9001. Depending on where you live your building inspector may require your steam shower to have certain certifications. ETL certification however is universally accepted in the United States and Canada. It is important to check with your building inspector before purchasing a steam shower that isn't ETL certified; this can save you from having to return the shower which can be expensive and hold up construction.
