Program Summary: Linear Drain systems in the kitchen and bath industry have become an important element in the overall design of the bathroom, wet room, or outdoor application. While the concept of creating drainage for "Barrier Free Bathrooms" is sometimes a challenge to those designing and building in the field, this course will express the options, benefits, and solutions that linear drain systems provide and also how they apply to ADA codes for accessibility. A fundamental review of the different types of linear drains will be covered, along with a comparison of the traditional waterproofing systems and modern waterproofing technology that are integral in understanding the installations of linear drain systems.

Learning Objectives: At the end of this presentation, the participant will be able to:
1. Design ADA-compliant, barrier-free showers that provide better water management than traditional showers with center-placed drains.
2. Enhance healing environments and other interiors with high-resolution digital art that is designed to withstand abuse and is easy to clean.
3. Explain how certain new flooring features contribute more toward the overall cleanliness and indoor air quality of a health-care interior.
4. Specify linear drains, flooring, and wall coverings that address many of the challenges designers currently face in health care and commercial spaces.

Approach: A PowerPoint presentation that includes both design applications and installations. There will be a Q&A period at the end of the program; however, questions are encouraged throughout as well.

A/V needed: Electrical power, projector and a screen for the PowerPoint presentation.

Target Audience: Architects, designers, specifiers, builders, developers and other professional in the residential, commercial, hospitality, and healthcare markets.

Cost: Non-applicable. There is no fee for bringing this program into a firm or chapter meeting.
