What has come to be known for flooring inspectors as Shaw Day.
In a telephone conversation with Shaw’s contact person in charge of their day at the seminar, Mr. Len Daubler informed me they would start with their various wood products and later their many different vinyl products.
Coretex products are a major concern for many inspectors and it will be taught also.
Shaw will be doing installation instructions with hands on demonstrations of their hard surface products.
We will have set up two video cameras feeding into a projector onto two large screens the demonstrations. You will not need to leave your seat to see the hands on demonstrations.
At the same time, the standards, tolerances and written instructions will also be displayed by Power Point onto a third screen in the middle on the stage so you can see, and hear everything.
You wil receive copies of their standards and tolerances, and, see exactly how they want their products installed.
The Guild has spared no expense to make sure, you leave knowing you saw and heard it all.
