Shower pan/curb, the way I do it.

Obviously there are a lot of ways to do a pan, this a just a way I've had success.

Walls were red guarded after and the durock is off the pan about 3/4.


Can't find the finished pictures (8x8 tumbled onyx on a 45 with a picture framed mosaic on the back wall)

TRAVIS, A ? for ya. Why you have the boards from the back wall and the side wall corner meet together. Should you sagger the joint instead all 4 corner meet.
I wouldn't do that of your way of hanging the board.

Do you do the same on the floor too? Just remember I am just asking....

Correct me if Im wrong (somebody), but shouldnt hanging board without "staggering" in transitions such as these be structurally sound?

Yes LT, right. Doesn't matter onna walls. Unless you have a shower bigger than 5FT then you would stagger the joints on the back wall.

Travis- picture order, please. I think you or someone else had mentioned a Schluter troba-mat subfloor before. Is that inside a noble panliner?

How do you attach the curbs?

Interesting.

Sorry.

order is bottom left (1), bottom right (2), top left (3), top right (4)

Noble caulk was used, Noble CIS liner, Troba (for drainage), wire for reinforcement.

For a standard pan, I don't usually need to caulk corners/bends but these angles presented a couple more problems.

I know CIS isn't specified for pan liners, but as I said on other posts, a couple guys from Noble said it was just as waterproof as TS. I like the CIS because I can find it in 6ft rolls which allows me to eliminate seams in my pan.

Thank you John, needless to say it took a bit of work getting to this point. We did a Schluter seminar on Bekotec during the construction thanks to Larry Horton.

Larry is one of the guys who Schluterized me at the Tile School back in '02. Spent a lot of time leaning on a shovel. Great guy. I see him from time to time.
