LIUNE IS SUITABLE AS A DOOR FOR BOTH THE BATHROOM AND THE SAUNA
Responsible construction and the safety of structures are particularly emphasized in damp areas. In order for the structures to remain dry and in good condition, it is very important to choose high-quality and purpose-designed products for interiors that come into contact with moisture. That is why we have designed and manufactured Liune products that are specifically suitable for wet areas, and that can be used safely in both home care facilities and even saunas.
WATERPROOFING AND the PARTITION FRAME
Liune wet room solutions are ideal for waterproofing. VTT-certified waterproofing systems can be used for waterproofing. The waterproofing system should include fiberglass fabrics at the corners, edges and seams. The water vapor transmission value of the waterproofing system must be less than 90 x 10¯¹² kg / m²sPa. (VTT:Finnish water insulation sertificate)
A steel or a wooden frame can be used as the frame structure, but as wood is more susceptible to moisture effects due to improper handling or storage. We recommend using a steel frame,however the frame thickness must be at least 95 mm.
The door elements of Liune for wet rooms have fixed gutters that are well waterproofed. Pipe pulls can be taken into account in the element, and the installation of furniture with structures is possible with the help of furniture supports.
PRODUCTS FOR WET ROOMS
Liune has developed several door assemblies suitable for wet areas. The themed door assembly is a massive MDF door and the frames are treated with moisture-resistant paint. They are resistant to wear and moisture, which can be found in toilets or utility rooms, for example. The standard color tone is white. The themed door does not whitstand splashes of water.
The warm sauna door system completely frees the sauna and bathroom for your use and there is no need to think about the problems of a revolving door. The thermal door can be selected in glass and in three different shades; bright, opal or dark smoke and or in wood. The frame strips included in the warm door solution are always made to fit according to the tiled frame thickness stated in the order.
The glass door solution is also suitable for rooms where there is a risk of splashes. In this case, it is worth informing us when ordering that the product is entering a damp room, in which case we will equip the glass door element with a gutter. The glass door is tempered, 8mm thick safety glass, when you select the recessed pull, the glass door slides completely inside the wall when the door is open. There are three shade options to choose from: light, opal and dark gray.
Wet room elements
Liune element is part of the finished partition frame and is delivered to the site assembled in one or two parts. The damp space element has a chute in the lower profile of the element that protects and directs the flow of any condensed moisture away. Waterproofing is always done in accordance with a waterproofing system certified by VTT (Finnish water insulation sertificate).
The element is made of strong steel sheet: material S350GD + Z. The element is a partition wall structure assembled by welding at the factory and is made of CE-marked steel profiles. All elements have slots for electric boxes as standard. The locations of the electrical boxes in the element are next to the door. When the door is 40mm in a 95mm frame, only surface boxes are possible, in a 120mm frame low electrical boxes are possible. The Liune wet room element can also accommodate pipe pulls when it comes to a 120mm frame. The most common wet room element is a 95mm frame depth.
Wet room frames
The style of the room can also be influenced by frames. Moisture-treated frames are prefabricated, frame-plugged are designed for spaces that may be exposed to moisture, but they are not resistant to splashing water. Fully splash-proof Liunen Design frames are smooth and have no frame plugs. Thus bringing a uniform and smooth surface to the door jambs. To finalize the saunas doorway we recommend the beautiful wooden frame-plugs with sauna wooden frames.
Wet room door leaves
The Theme door leaf made of solid mdf material, designed for damp rooms, painted with moisture-resistant paint. The standard color tone of the door is white, but all shades of the color chart are also possible for a moisture-resistant door.
For spaces exposed to direct splashes of water, you should choose ourTime glass doors,which offer light or vision protection.There are three shade options for the 8mm thick glass door;bright, opal and dark gray.
The sauna is a beloved place for Finns, but still unfortunately often cramped. Heat sauna door slides inside the wall, bringing space without compromising the atmosphere. Safety has also been taken into account here, e.g. with a ventilation space at the bottom of the door. Stunning shades for glass doors include light, opal and dark gray, as well as elegant wood.
Things to remember during installation
The installation of the Liune element in a damp room is successful if you follow the instructions carefully. Well-done waterproofing is key in the bathrooms, as are adequate spills per floor drain. When using leveling compounds, it is always advisable to follow the manufacturers instructions regarding both water quantities and additives. Waterproofing is done on leveled surfaces and once they have dried, the surface materials can be installed and any seams and seals made.
It is good to remember that in under the floor heating projects it is not advisable to drill holes in the floor, but to use adhesive compounds for the premises during installations. All holes required for installation are filled with silicone before drilling in the screws. Both the walls and the floor must be waterproofed in accordance with regulations. In addition, it is important to secure the joints and corners of the walls as well as the joints of different materials with a joint tape.
