schluter linear drain with denshield walls in shower

Hi

Would you all cover the denshield with kerdi cloth or just up a foot or two?

Also, what is the consensus on big tiles in a shower, seems kinda foolish.

Thanks

I'd go with an entire system rather than piecing parts together. If you're doing a Kerdi shower, I'd use it over the entire pan and all the walls to a height of at least the shower head. I'm assuming this is a regular shower rather than a steam shower?

Big tile? Are you asking about the shower floor, walls, or both? What size are you asking about?

Ditto Tonto. Lots of ways to guess how to answer your question, so best to tell us what you have in mind. We can run with that

Hi Aaron. I guess you're in the tile business?

Big tiles on shower floors can be more slippery than smaller pieces. Mosaics, for example, have so many grout joints that grip the feet that it's all but impossible to fall down.

Also, for center drain shower floors big tiles are not able to form the compound dips going to the drain.

I, like others on this forum, do all my showers using a Denshield/Kerdi combo. No reason to waste the Denshield if they already bought it, unless you're worried about a manufacturer's warranty...

agreed

For some reason, with the schluter linear drain packaging, they show big tiles, 12 x 24. So what do you think my client wants?

Thanks for the help. Just confirming my thoughts.
