Kerdi curb question


I'm about to start hanging cement board (Permabase?) and Kerdi for a 3x4' shower. Question is: Will a Kerdi Curb (foam) support a frameless glass door with the door hinged on the glass, not hinged on the tile jamb? Or should I build the curb out of 2x4s? The door folks said the glass door would work fine, tho they'll run a header across the top. The bottom hinge attaches to the curb.

Also while we're talkin'; the shower is actually 3x4 with a corner cut off. The door is on the neo corner. Since it's gonna hinge on the glass, the "striker" side of the door meets the tile jamb. Of course, there's no strike plate or stop; the door actually will swing out or into the shower. The tile jamb needs to be purpendicular to the curb/door. How deep would you build the jamb, to make it strong and look right? I'l try to draw a picture, if that doesn't make sense.

Thanks!

Kerdi curb question


Rbf,
A kerdi curb should be fine, especially since the glass company has to drill into the curb. MAKE sure they fill the hole completely with Kerdi Fix! You can install your curb, upside down so the square holes are facing up and then fill the holes with deck mud for the overkill factor.
As far as your jamb, its all cosmetic and what you would like to see. Looks like your already going to be needing some bullnose trim
