    SEMINAR SCHEDULE

    TEXTILE APPLICATION ISSUES AND SOLUTIONS  
    9:45 - 10:45 a.m. | 1IDCEC hour (HSW)

    In the world of commercial interiors – especially in high-traffic environments such as hospitals, hotels, schools, etc. – it’s inevitable that textiles will experience wear-and-tear. While most contract textiles are designed to withstand a great deal of abuse, many fabrics fail prematurely resulting in unforeseen replacement costs and unhappy clients. But why do some textiles that have high performance characteristics fail in the field, and is there anything you can do as a specifier to prevent these unwanted application nightmares? You bet! This CEU will examine several of the most common textile application issues and why they occur, as well as offer some practical steps you can take as a specifier to help ensure you select the right product for the right application every time.
