Kerdi board transition to acrylic shower pan


I am unclear about the proper way to transition at the bottom of a kerdi board to an acrylic shower receptor. The pan has a surprising short flange. Would appreciate advice about alternatives. All I see on line are transitions to tiled shower pans.

In most cases I shim out the wall with lattis so the board will fit over the flange without having to bow out, the board gets installed within 3/8" of the pan, the tile goes to within 1/4, caulking fills in the gap.

Thanks for the response. What concerns me is the flange is very short. My understanding is that the flange directs water that has penetrated the tile/grout back into the pan but with a layer of sealant between tile and pan how can that work. Most pans have a higher flange. Mine is only about a quarter inch and my concern is it will just flow back into the wall.

That sounds like the wrong pan---flange is usually 3/4" or bigger--

Never used Kerdi Board--new product---I typically rest the backer on top of the flange--then fill the gap with thinset as I tile--

But 1/4" flange---that worries me--

I don't use kerdi board but wouldn't it make more sense to rabbet out the back of the board a little so it would fit straight down over the lip with out bowing and set it in a bead of Kerdi fix which would minimize a 3/8" gap down to 1/16" and then run a finish bead of Kerdi fix on the outside to completely seal it?

Interesting suggestion. Thanks.

Still worries me about whether this is the right way. Here is a link to the installation guide[/URL] for this very expensive shower pan:http://www.wetstyle.ca/sites/default...ouche-10_0.pdf
