ADA – Hello, I Am Suing You!

Have you taken the necessary steps to prepare for a potential and possibly costly lawsuit? Did you know there are multiple sides to ADA? There is the physical side of ADA from which you may or may not be exempt. There’s also the gray area of historic properties, which are not automatically exempt from ADA but may qualify for certain exemptions. Then, there is the website side of ADA from which NO ONE is exempt. Finally, there are other important ADA guidelines for your booking engine, PMS, and OTA listings, as well as room retention requirements for disabled persons. Join us for this information-packed webinar to learn what steps you need to take to prepare for the possibility of being sued. You’ll also learn how to use online testing tools to see if your website and booking engine are ADA-compliant.

Curbless Showers for ADA Barrier-free Compliance

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


Preventing Mold: Effective Moisture Management in Tiled Showers

Leaks and mold continue to pose serious problems for the construction industry. This seminar will compare traditional waterproofing systems with modern waterproofing technology to show how tiled showers have evolved. The fundamentals of both approaches, including proper design, execution, and function will be presented, with close attention paid to common errors, as well. The benefits of bonded waterproofing technology and how it has improved tiled showers will be stressed.
