1.) Apply surface waterproofing (following manufacturers instructions) over the entire shower floor, with at least 3″ up the walls and 6″ past the Kerb into the “dry” area. 

2.) Cut Ebbe Kerb to fit from wall to wall leaving ⅛” gap at each end (ex. If the space measures 40” the Kerb should be cut to 39-¾”).

Pro Tip: To get an accurate measurement from wall to wall measure from the left wall and make a mark at 10”, then measure the distance from the right wall to the mark you just made, and add 10” to that number. 

Example: After marking the floor at 10”. The measurement from the other wall to the mark is 32 ½”. You would cut the Kerb to 42 ¼”
