SALT CAVE BUILDING
What is a salt cave or a salt room? It is a space where you can breathe with salt air. It is called Halotherapy.
The salt cave can be with or without halogenerator. The procedure would be a bit different because of different concentration of salt, but the principle is the same - you breathe in air with small particles of salt.
Walls, floor and a ceiling can be made of salt blocks or covered with a salt texture. Spraying the salt texture is the cheapest but the least sustainable option. Pressed salt blocks are the heaviest way but as the salt texture can fall to pieces if humidity increases.
Himalayan salt blocks are solid stones and can resist high level of humidity. These walls can be backlit because they permit light through. A glue-free installation system fixes salt blocks with aluminium rails and you can be sure that it would not fall down even years later.
HOW TO APPLY SALT BLOCKS TO WALLS
The most popular thicknesses of Himalayan salt blocks are 2.5 cm (1") and 5 cm (2"). The weight of a salt tile 20x10x2.5 cm is 1.1kg, salt brick 20x10x5 cm is 2.2 kg.
Walls of Himalayan salt with glue have some restrictions: height, size, no backlight. Salt rejects any adhesive especially when humidity changes. The entirely salt wall can fall down or some bricks can unglue. Anyway, even one falling down salt stone can hurt.
Another way is to use a glue-free installation system. Each tile or brick has grooves and is fixed with aluminium rails to a wall or a framework. Doesn't matter how old is the salt wall, you are always safe.
