Prefab pan with tiled walls for a shower enclosure

Hi guys,

Here's something I've been running into recently. Many of my projects don't have the budget for a custom pan and we're typically working with existing floorplans trying to get everything to fit. My question is, is there a way to utilize a prefab pan when we have an enclosed shower (walls on 4-sides with glass door)? I'm not sure how to deal with the nailing flange at the curb/threshold and if the curb could be built-up and then wrap the curb-cap over the flange?

Hi Matt,

I'm not sure what type of "pan" you mean. Fiberglass receptors have curbs already. Maybe you mean one of the foam tile-over floors?

HI John, maybe I don't know what kind of "pan" either, ha!

I'm talking about the fiberglass/acrylic receptors. And I'm fairly new to all this so you'll have to bear with me. But the fiberglass receptors I'm familiar with would have nailing flange on 3-sides and then an open curb, which work fine when we have 3-walls. But when you add the fourth wall, then we have a curb with no nailing flange and I've been assuming that drives me into a custom pan (deck mud, Schluter, Wedi, etc.).

I just want to make sure I can't use the prefab base in these conditions if the owner doesn't want the expense of a custom tiled pan.

Yeah, I don't see a good way of using the receptor with four walls. But if you don't want to tackle a mud job, go with a foam floor and curb. Then waterproof the walls with either a liquid or sheet membrane. Schluter, Custom, Laticrete, Mapei all have membranes.
