When:  Aug 17, 2022 from 12:00 PM to 01:00 PM (ET)
Associated with  Akron-Canton

Presented by American Bath Group Company

The presentation covers the three predominantly encountered building codes in architectural design, ADA, FHA, and ICC A117.1 (commonly referred to as ANSI), and how bathware is configured to comply with each.

Participants will improve their understanding of a) what each code is, where it is required, where the guidelines for compliance can be found, and what elements are required; b)  FHA design guidelines that provide for equal access to housing regardless of ability and how bathware configurations can ensure residents can safely stay in their home should the need for accessibility arise in the future; c) the three types of compliant bathing fixtures and accessories and how each one is configured to meet the 3 covered building codes, and; d) the architectural/structural specification of accessories including but not limited to seats, grab bars and slide guides to ensure long term safety of the residents, patients and caregivers.
