The latest designs do this using a built in thermostat. These are known as thermostatic mixing valves, thermostat valves, or TMVs, and can be mechanical or electronic. Another type is an anti-scald valve, which is only to prevent the water from getting to hot, but not chilling.
Once you have decided that you would like to purchase a new bathroom shower stall, as well as how large of one you can purchase, you will need to start shopping for your shower. Although you may expect to find everything that you need all in one place, it may be a little bit difficult to do. Although there are a number of retailers, particularly home improvement stores, that sell standalone shower kits, there are others who do not. If you are unable to find a retailer who sells shower kits, you may need to purchase all of your parts separately. The parts that you will need may include, but should not be limited to, a shower floor, shower walls, a shower door, as well as a shower head.
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.
A very important thing to keep in mind is that the steam that comes from the unit needs an outlet. Otherwise, it may cause structural problems in your house.
WMK: WMK is a well known steam shower manufacturer. They have a contemporary look to them with their signature blue tinted glass. Their two most popular models are the A-12 and Apollo steam shower.
