What's it all about:

Barrier-free showers continue to grow in popularity for various reasons.  For some, limited mobility due to disability or age makes barrier-free showers a necessity for access.  For others, they recognize that what is comfortable today may become necessary in the future and want to plan for it now.  These showers have also become increasingly popular for their aesthetic benefits, as they can integrate seamlessly with surrounding tiled surfaces to enhance an already luxurious environment.

Webinar Participants Will Learn:

This webinar will explain the basics of barrier-free shower design.

Additionally, participants will learn about:

  • Simple and effective solutions to protect moisture-sensitive substrates, prevent mold growth, and preserve the integrity of the tiled surface
  • How bonded waterproofing membranes minimize the thickness of the assembly
  • The incorporation of linear drains to allow for the use of popular large-format tiles
  • Materials and methods for simple customization of showers
  • References for disabled access showers
