Curbs and Ramps

Product information

Available in several options for shower entry designs where transitions are required, wedi curbs and ramps can be installed with wedi Fundo shower bases, as well as conventional mortar bed systems. Waterproof and versatile, wedi Curbs and Ramps may be tiled before any glass doors, panels or glass block is installed and can carry weight of up to 480 lbs./ft. Epoxy glue is recommended instead of screw fasteners when installing shower door tracks.

wedi Full Foam Curbs combine it all in one element when compared to traditional methods of 2’ x 4’ wood assembly, lath, mud and waterproofing. They come presloped so water runs back into the shower.

wedi Curb Overs are designed to water-proof over existing 2’ x 4’ wood constructions. A conventional PVC pan liner is sandwiched inside between the 2’ x 4’ and the wedi Curb Over. The wedi Curb Over will provide additional water-proofing and square corners for a perfect tile job. No fasteners should penetrate the curb except on the vertical outside of the shower. Attach with thinset mortar only. Please install curb over in accordance with the TCNA Handbook detail.

The wedi Shower Ramp is used to create curbless showers without recessing the shower base into the subfloor. The ramp provides a 1”slope over a 12” length and meets ADA requirements. The ramp should not be tiled with tiles smaller than 4” x 4” when wheelchairs are used in this shower.
