ThermaSol celebrates 50 years as the leader in steam by introducing several industry firsts. Fortunately, steam shower owners can now match their control and steamhead to their bathroom fittings with ThermaSol's Traditional and Contemporary Series Controls that offer either Signature Series' advanced functionality options or Temp-Touch's baseline options.
The Signature Series is a miniature command center that offers the user precise temperature adjustment, variable session times, sound system volume control, chromatherapy light type intensity and two user presets when used with the Serenity Light and Music System. Finally, ThermaSol Steamshower owners have complete control over their home spa environment as they can enjoy Mood Light Mode, which generates a gradually changing spectrum of light.
The Temp-Touch Series is ThermaSol's baseline control that offers function for all of their steam bath generators as well as their in-shower Light and Music System. A bar graph details minimum and maximum temperature settings, volume, light type and intensity and there is a 45 minute default session setting.
Both the Signature and Temp-Touch Series' come in two styles: traditional and contemporary. The Traditional Series control and steamhead feature a beautifully sculpted bezel and match the traditional, classical and palatial trim designs offered by most fixture manufacturers. The Contemporary Series control and steamhead blend seamlessly with modern, Euro-style or transitional fixtures in the bathroom.
"Finally, I don't have to forgo style in favor of function," says Travel Channel personality Samantha Brown. "With ThermaSol's new design choices I can match my control and steamhead fitting to my bathroom furnishings. Also nothing is better than coming home and enjoying the new Light and Music System that allows me to relax in my Steamshower while listening to my favorite music surrounded by the most calming colors with aromatherapy treatments that soothe the senses."
ThermaSol's new generation Serenity Light and Music System takes the steam experience to a whole new level. The Serenity Light and Music System includes an all-in-one in-shower, high intensity full spectrum LED type light system for the ultimate in chromatherapy, as well as a high-performance speaker set. The system features built-in FM receiver and two additional input source interfaces. Composite component input can come from portable MP3 players, CDs, DVDs and televisions or just about any audio player device. All ThermaSol steam approved components are mounted behind a 10" diameter solid brass ceiling grill, precision machined to match the new sculptured Traditional or sleek Contemporary series of ThermaSol controls and steamheads.
"Through 50 years of steam manufacturing and development we have become proven leaders in the industry due to ThermaSol's intelligent electronics, state-of-the-art design and technological standards," says President of ThermaSol Mitch Altman. "We look forward to leading the industry for years to come with our innovative designs."
Also included with the Serenity Light and Music System is the optional RF 2.8 GHz hand-held remote, which is waterproof, durable, and extremely stylized to meet the most discerning requirements of consumers who are creating their own home-spa environment. The remote offers complete control over all of the functions from inside the shower and comes in 14 matching finishes.
In addition to the controls and matching steamhead fittings, ThermaSol now offers three specialized generators. The SteamShower Classic Series features FastStart™ technology, which produces steam in seconds not minutes. It also comes with a PowerFlush inner tank cleaning system that promotes decalcification, reduces sediment build-up and is activated at the generator. The SteamShower AF Series has an AutoPower Flush inner tank cleaning system, in which all cycles can be activated through the actual shower and it also comes with FastStart™ technology. Lastly, there is the ProSeries™ which features AutoPower Flush, FastStart™ technology, a custom-fit removable smitty pan and SmartSteam™ technology. ThermaSol's Pro-Grade smitty pan clips directly to the base of the steam generator, has a ¾ NPT drain fitting and is manufactured from stainless steel with fully welded seams.
SmartSteam™ technology is the absolute latest in steam control. Most generators use a mechanical power contactor to turn the generator on and off. This mechanical device opens and closes to provide full energy to the heater located inside the tank. As the steam room reaches the desired temperature the control switches this contactor off. Then when the room drops in temperature the control activates the contactor again. ThermaSol's SmartSteam™ uses a liquid cooled server-duty solid-state relay as the heater control device. This system is a micro processor control and includes Intelligence. The system learns the response time required to get the room to a desired temperature and after a few uses, the technology, rather than completely shutting off, can silently pulse the heater allowing the maintenance of the room temperature at a reduced power level.
"SmartSteam™ technology produces the minimum amount of steam required to keep the steam room at one's optimum temperature," says ThermaSol's Vice President of Engineering Scott Sharitz. "This is truly the greatest change to steam generation that we have seen in the last half century."
