Am-Finn’s Initiatives
In 2006, Am-Finn introduced the industry’s first Advanced Hybrid Steam Room (HSR). The Hybrid Steam room is 50% more energy efficient than traditional tile and has an exclusive self cleaning system that reduces maintenance costs. Hybrid Steam Room systems eliminate the problems of traditional tile room such as regrouting, re-tiling, leakage and high-maintenance/ cleaning with heavy chemicals. In addition to lower operating costs, Advanced Hybrid Steam Rooms are substantially more hygienically clean than traditional tile. Sanitary concerns and lower operational costs have resulted in a rapid adoption of the HRS by architects and facility operators. Am-Finn’s HSR are Energy Star systems that provide the following LEEDS credits.
