Make sure that you take your time when finding anything for your bathroom because you must consider you spend a lot of your life in the bathroom.

Everyone has thoughts about upgrading themselves and improving their fitness, health and even indirectly their confidence levels. It is however far too easy to lose motivation, especially if you are expecting drastic and short term results. Its a hard truth but changing your body shape, fitness, diet and lifestyle is something that takes time. Realistically 'diets' can help you loose weight, if you start eating less but continue to be as active as before your body will loose weight and depending on the extremeness of the diet it can do so quite quickly.
BUT there are a few BIG problems with this firstly any crash diet is likely to see you losing the wrong type of weight. If you suddenly cut out all the fat from your diet your body will start burning your body fat in its place right? Well sadly NO this is not really true. If you starve your body of fat it is more likely to hold onto the body fat you already have as its supply has been cut of, put simply it rations! You may well loose weight but it is likely to be muscle wastage (this is called atrophy) and is especially true if you have quite a lot of muscle to start with.
The other big problem is even if you loose weight as soon as you stop the diet you will put it straight back on again! what you really need to do is change your lifestyle and diet (as in your life diet not a diet period) if you eat badly it is almost impossible to just change just like that, the key is to start small and make little changes that are realistic and you can stick to. For example start by cutting crisps out of your daily diet or replacing them with a baked alternative, once you have got used to this change make another one say eat 3 average sized meals + 2 - 3 snacks per day as opposed to gorging yourself on 3 massive platefuls! This will keep your metabolic rate up and means your body will be burning calories more consistently.
Other than diet the main factors which can effect you reaching your targets are lack of sleep and stress!
Stress and Worry
Stress is an unavoidable fact of life, if your lucky it will be infrequent but its likely it could be a daily inevitability if your job involved pressure and stress. When you are stressed you body releases a hormone called cortisol and reduces the amount of testosterone that your body produces which is a terrible combination which will stop you from putting on muscle or making cardiovascular fitness advancements. This is similar too, and can be linked with, lack of sleep.

Any parts of this product which have required joining (particularly the stainless steel frame of the steam shower trays) have been expertly TIG welded to ensure long lasting and top quality welds leading to a top spec product.
What is TIG Welding?
Tungsten Inert Gas welding (also known as ‘Gas Tungsten Arc Welding’) is a welding technique which uses gases such as Argon and Helium, or a mixture of the two, to join two pieces of metal together. These particular gasses, with this technique, ensure a faster and deeper weld which penetrates the metal further leading to a more solid weld.
The TIG welding method became popular and useful in the early 1940s and, as a result, has greatly propelled the use of aluminium for welding and structural processes. TIG welding is commonly used for both high quality and manual welding.
During the process of TIG welding, an arc is formed between a pointed tungsten electrode and the area to be welded. As a result of the gas shield, a clean weld is formed. This prevents oxidization from occurring.
There are a number of welding joins including:
- Butt Joint -
Two pieces of metal are welded together along the seems
- Lap Joint -
Two pieces of metal overlap are joined on top of one another
- Corner Joint –
Two pieces of metal are held at a 90 degree angle and joined along the seem
- T-Joint -
Required a filler rod, on piece of metal is placed on top of another with a 90 degree angle at either side (forming a T shape)
Why Stainless Steel?
Steel is well known for its strength and durability however, there are a number of different types of steel including crucible steel, carbon steel and of course stainless steel.
Stainless steel, also known as 'inox steel' and 'corrosion resistant steel' (CRES), consists of between 10.5% and 11% chromium by mass. Carbon steel rusts when exposed to air and moisture. This iron oxide film (the rust) is active and accelerates corrosion by forming more iron oxide. Stainless steels contain sufficient chromium to form a passive film of chromium oxide, which prevents further surface corrosion and blocks corrosion from spreading into the metal's internal structure.
This makes stainless steel perfect for the construction of many of our bathroom appliances frames as it is just as strong as standard steel but it never corrodes, so it wont rust or oxidise meaning it will last (almost) forever.
