Curbless shower with Nuheat?

Hey all! Long time reader/lurker and newly a member of the forum. I've successfully built a shower using a combination of mud pan, hydroban, wedi boards before but am now starting a new project that requires some input from the experts

I'm looking to build a curbless 3 x 5 shower. I'm not set on a drain style yet (linear or square offset are both fine) and am looking to extend Nuheat membrane and heat over to the floor of the curbless shower. I have been looking at Wedi pans that are preformed. Assuming the wedi pan transitions to the plywood subfloor seamlessly (flush) can I just take the Nuheat membrane right over the pan? Because of the different slopes in different directions towards the drain I wasn't sure if the membrane could accommodate that or not? Any other advice where this is concerned? If it's too much of an obstacle I'll just keep the heat out of the shower pan.

Thanks so much in advance.

Hi Kevin,

Some heat mat manufacturers make systems for wet areas. I would look for one of those. Otherwise, I don't see any problem with the installation.

Many of the heating systems require them to be beneath a waterproof surface when used in a shower. Since Wedi is the waterproofing, that could be a problem when trying to use one on top of it. You need to read their installation instructions carefully, and personally, I'd call them to get their thoughts, along with Wedi.
