Description

This presentation examines ways in which barrier-free environments can be customized to include various design elements while remaining ADA compliant. It will also address why bonded waterproofing technology lends itself to the construction requirements of barrier-free design.

Mandated requirements for ADA compliance and demand from an aging population are 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.
