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” 

3. Chalk or draw a line on the floor where the Kerb will be located.


Pro Tip: The Kerb can be used as a straight edge to mark the floor

Do not connect the Kerb to the Mounting Bars yet!  

Once attached you will be able to adjust the Kerb side to side, but not remove the Kerb.

4. Lay out Mounting Bars along the line and cut final Mounting Bar as needed.
(Keep at least two Mounting Holes in cut Mounting Bar)

4a. If attaching to concrete, mark the hole locations and drill for concrete anchors.

5.) Apply a continuous bead of sealant ½” from the line you made in step 3.

Bed the Mounting Bars into the sealant and fasten them to the floor using all holes.  

Note: Fasten the Mounting Bar 1/16” back from the line you made in step 3. 

Adjust the Mounting Bars as needed so they are in a straight line.

Install the Kerb when the sealant is wet. 

If the sealant dries before installing the Kerb, it will harden, making it impossible for the Kerb to fit over to the Mounting Bars.

6. After the Mounting Bars are attached to the substrate. Apply a generous bead of sealant to the top of the fastened Mounting Bars and up each wall 1”.  

Install the Kerb:  Starting at one end of the Mounting Bars begin to push the Kerb down over the Mounting Bar until it “clicks” into place.

7. Apply sealant between the end of the Kerb and the waterproofed wall. Remove any excess sealant that might interfere with the Kerb Cap or glass installation.

8. Install tile at floors and walls.
9. Glass Installation: Ebbe Kerb comes with Glass Supports that align and cushion ⅜” glass within the Kerb Channel. Fold the Glass Support so that it forms a ⅜” wide “U” Shape. If it is not ⅜” wide, fold it back the other direction.
