Linear Drain Systems: Design, Installation, & Application

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.
