Building Barrier-free Showers

11:15 am - 12:15 pm

Mandated requirements for ADA compliancy and demand from an aging population, is creating a growing need for barrier-free bathrooms. Today’s ADA compliant bathroom no longer has to be utilitarian or “institutional” in its design. Design options are enhanced through the use of tile and innovative construction methods. The result is beautiful bathrooms that also adhere to ADA standards for accessible design. This seminar will examine ways in which barrier-free environments can be customized to include various design elements while remaining ADA compliant. This seminar will also address why bonded waterproofing technology lends itself to the construction requirements of barrier-free design.
