Completely Curbless!

Presented by: Schluter Systems

Curbless showers allow you to create spa-like retreats, with built-in seats and benches, inset shelves and niches, low-profile linear drains, and heated floors that run from the tile floor right into the shower. And now, they are even easier to achieve.

Join us for our live demonstration where we will be creating an open-concept oasis featuring our new thinner trays, STYLE grates, and KERDI-BOARD waterproof building panels.

Need tips on how to create a waterproof envelope in the bathroom when going curbless? We’ll be covering that too! Because wet areas and dry areas are not clearly defined in curbless showers, the bathroom must be sufficiently protected against water and moisture as a whole. DITRA and DITRA-HEAT offer that protection. Come find out more!
