Frequently asked questions
What is the purpose of a Roman caldarium?
Originally a hot room treatment with plunge bath, modern installations of a Caldarium have heated surfaces (usually a heated floor and tiles). They are driven by electric heating units or low pressure hot water (central heating) pipes within the curved benches, backrests and floor. The radiant heat of a Roman Caldarium treatment room stimulates circulation and regenerates the body’s natural energies.
Can I combine a Caldarium with a bespoke spa?
You can indeed combine a Caldarium with a custom spa. In fact almost all of the Roman hot rooms we install are part of a larger spa complex such as a commercial Turkish Hammam or domestic basement spa.
Which thermal rooms go well with a Caldarium?
Any custom built Caldarium is usually part of a larger wellness spa. You won’t often see this hot room installed individually in any spa setting. Consequently, when you see a Caldarium you’ll also see thermal rooms such a Laconium warm room, Tepidarium warm room and Frigidarium cold room.
