Infinity Drain, the leading manufacturer of architectural drainage solutions, has launched a new online CEU in partnership with Architectural Record. The new course, “Understanding Architectural Linear Drains,” explores the various design applications of linear drains as well as the unique details available and waterproofing methods recommended.


“We are excited to expand our linear drain course library with a new CEU all about architectural drainage,” said Jonathan Brill, president of Infinity Drain. “An increasing number of architects, designers and homeowners are seeking fixtures that are both practical and elegant. In addition to serving a functional need, linear drains and center drains can also be design features. They are offered in a variety of sizes, finishes and customization options. This course outlines which selections are available and where they may be best suited in a project.”



Learning objectives of the 1 AIA LU/HSW credit educational course include:

1. Identify and recognize the need and options for proper water drainage to provide safety and accessibility in different building types.

2. Investigate the design options that are available to create water drainage solutions that are both attractive and safe.

3. Assess the performance characteristics of architectural drainage systems that contribute to their effectiveness and safety.

4. Recognize how the principles described in this course are applied to specific building types through project example case studies.


Course Description: Draining water away from buildings is a fundamental need in most projects. This is true for indoor and outdoor locations as well as many different building types. However, just because there is a functional need doesn’t mean that the solution can’t also be a design feature. Architectural linear drains have been used to achieve both – effective drainage and design feature excellence. Many architects are paying closer attention to the quality of the drainage products and specifying architectural drains instead of commodity solutions. This is particularly true where higher amenities are concerned such as outdoor areas, wellness spaces, wet rooms, balconies, etc. where high-end appearance is required but so is compliance with performance requirements such as effective drainage and accessibility. In this course, we address some of the basic principles and criteria for incorporating architectural drainage and show examples of successful solutions.
