Infinity Drain® Partners with Architectural Record to Launch New CEU Course on Curbless Shower Design, Aging in Place
Amityville, NY – Infinity Drain, the leading manufacturer of architectural drainage solutions, has launched a new online CEU in partnership with Architectural Record. The new course, entitled The Many Benefits of Barrier-Free Showers, explores the many technical and aesthetical benefits of open concept bathrooms and curbless shower design and how they assist with aging-in-place.
“We’re thrilled to align with Architectural Record to provide a comprehensive course where trade professionals can further expand their knowledge on barrier-free bathroom design,” says Jonathan Brill, President of Infinity Drain. “While there are many design elements involved in crafting these rooms, it’s truly the floor drain that enables proper drainage and water management to protect the integrity of the bathroom. And this course really delves into the behind-the-scenes of barrier-free design.”
Learning objectives of the 1 AIA LU/HSW credit educational course include:
- Describe the connection between barrier-free showers and the design objectives of aging in place or living in place.
- Explain how barrier-free shower spaces comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) design standards.
- Identify the basic elements and considerations for incorporating this more accessible barrier-free shower into a new construction or renovation project.
- Specify the right linear drain system for any given project.
Barrier-free bathrooms have been recognized as a top bathroom design trend in both 2020 and 2021, and blogs galore in the design and construction industry tout their popularity. Some design trends start because there is a unique need in the market and then catch fire because the new solution is better in so many ways. The rise of the barrier-free shower is a perfect example of this phenomenon. First developed to accommodate the growing interest in “aging in place” spurred by Baby Boomers, barrier-free showers are now considered the next level in beautiful, luxurious interiors.
