Pro GEN II Solid Polystyrene Shower Curb - 3′ Long
This 3-foot section of dense polystyrene can serve as the structure for a tiled shower curb. This curb works with a variety of tile shower waterproofing systems and membranes. It is constructed of durable, lightweight material that can be easily cut down to a desired size. A v-groove runs the entire length of the bottom which will create a strong dovetail hold with the cured thinset that adheres the curb to the subfloor.
Customer Questions & Answers
Shower Kits has 14 Questions and Answers.
Should I install a traditional mud kit (drypack mortar and PVC liner / mortar and membrane) or use a pre-formed foam pan?
Pre-formed pans are easily modifiable and easy to install on any substrate. They are great for DIY, as well as for a fast and clean installation by a professional. Drypack kits do not work well for tiles smaller than 2" x 2" without additional work.
Why is modified thinset better for my installation?
Modified thinsets are stronger once cured. Most have additional anti-crack features, and better initial tack/grab (AKA less “slump”). They also are required for use with porcelain and glass tile.
