2" Kerdi Board for Shower Curb

Looking at a modern 3" curb and was curious if anyone has used Schluter 2" Kerdi board? Thinking about using this as a curb with a Quartz sill on top. Any known reasons why this isn't a viable option? Planning on waterproofing with kerdi band just like a pre-fab curb.

Thanks!

I haven't done it personally, but I know of several that have. You can use mortar for bonding, or Kerdi fix.

I'd use mortar since you'll have it on hand anyway.

Appreciate the comment. I did some additional research and there's a video from a Schluter rep that discusses using several different "pieces" to construct a curb. I am leaning towards trying it. I do plan on using mortar. I feel it's more secure going onto the subfloor. Thanks again.

We do also make a pre-made curb that is solid so you don't have to do any fabrication: https://www.schluter.com/schluter-us...KERDI_BOARD-SC

You can also take the schluter pre-made curb and cut it thinner if you don't want a 5in tall curb. A table saw is best so you get a nice, flat, parallel cut to the other side. Actually, you can tilt the blade to make one end slightly angled and give you the slope you want on the top of the curt(towards the inside of the shower. It does not need to be much, just enough so water will flow that way.

If the curb already has the orange membrane on it, (they sell it with and without, Just make sure you cut the bottom.
