Barrier-free shower with Schluter pan and linear drain question

As I continue to prepare for the remodel of a couple of showers, I have a question that I haven't been able to get answered. The basic layout of the shower is a two wall design with a linear drain at one wall (right side) and a back wall (straight ahead). The pan slopes from left to right into the linear drain. The glass would be mounted on the level floor just outside the pan-parallel to the back wall. What is used to manage the the plane change where this is not wall, just glass? There would be a free edge of the tiles where the level floor meets the pan- the area just inside (to left of glass). How is this edge covered? Grout? The Schluter folks didn't know. There isn't a profile that handles this without a wall, and although they are very helpful, they don't know. The attached picture depicts what I am trying to articulate...

looks to me like it is set into a "U" channel used for glazing

Unless they've discontinued it, they DO make a profile specifically for this and I think it's this one:

Thanks! I don't how I missed that, or how the Schluter rep wasn't aware of it!

They showed us one during one of their training sessions, which is why I remembered it. I had not searched, but found it fairly easily when I did.

I am curious, without that profile how would you protect that transition?

Along a wall, you'd make all of your tile a wedge to follow the slope. Along the outside where you don't have a curb, you could have a compound curve, depending on the size of the tile, but if they're large format ones, you'd probably have to cut some slivers and maybe use a corner profile. From a time and skill level, though, assuming you're using their pan, the length and shape of that profile makes life LOTS easier and faster.

Thanks again. That makes sense. The guy I spoke to said to grout it and then didn't seem like the best method...
