I am building a shower enclosure that will have a glass surround. I think the Schluter Curb is too high, and want to cut it down shorter because the travertine tile base board is 4" and the curb is 6". I have already thinsetted it in. Can I cut it down to the correct height and still have it be steady? Also what is the typical thickness of the Ditra after it is thinsetted?

This should be moved to the plumbing section.

cut it down, but you should probably fill the holes in with thinset or drypack... if you end up exposing them

I would b concerned about your finished height of the shower floor in relation to the cut height of the curb. If you apply a standard height shower floor screed mud, tit should be about 2 1/2 inches, thus only 1 1/2 inches from a 4 inch curb.

Per a recent Schluter workshop, shorten from the bottom, narrow width from center (IE leave the original top and sidewalls intact) You'd have to fill your exposed slots with deck mud, That's a bit too thick for dryset/thinset

So you know, the original question was asked over 3years ago and the "husband" hasn't been back since.
