Curb trim: what is this piece for?
 
I am looking at a piece of curb trim specifically for wet-bed installations, according to the manufacturer's website. 2-1/2" x 6". It is curved on both long edges; here is a profile view:

|<-----2.5"------->|

.::::::::::::::::::::::.
::000000000000000::


where 0000000000 = hollow space.

Since this trim piece is only 2.5 inches across, I don't see how it could be used to cap a dam in a wet-bed shower-stall installation. A 2x4 on edge with the metal lath and mud would exceed its width considerably. What would such a narrow curb be used for?

Thanks

I believe they called that a sink rail back in the old days. Some old guy can correct me if I'm wrong. :) They would use a row of sink rail along the front edge of a countertop. That's when they were called drainboards. :)
