Schluter®-KERDI-BOARD-SN Shower Niche over solid backing

The exact order of installation can vary from that shown below, provided all fastening and waterproofing measures are performed properly. The following represents Schluter®-Systems' recommendations for simple and reliable installation.

Schluter Systems Schluter Systems Schluter Systems
Schluter Systems Determine desired location and trace around the outside of the KERDI-BOARD-SN flange, making sure the lines are level and plumb. Cut and remove the wallboard such that the niche will be supported on both sides by the studs or other wall framing. Schluter Systems Insert the niche and fasten to the studs using wood or metal screws, placing the fasteners approximately 1/4" from the edges of the niche. Fasten all corners and limit fastener spacing to 12" o.c. Schluter Systems Apply the KERDI membrane over the wall surface as described on KERDI Membrane Installation Page. Once the membrane is solidly embedded, cut the membrane to match the niche opening.

Cut and remove the KERDI-BOARD such that the niche will be supported on both sides by the studs or other wall framing. Schluter Systems Insert the niche and fasten to the studs using wood or metal screws and KERDI-BOARD-ZT washers, placing the fasteners along the seam between the KERDI-BOARD and the niche. Fasten all corners and limit fastener spacing to 12" o.c. Schluter Systems Seal the seams between the niche and walls using KERDI-BAND with unmodified thin-set mortar ensuring a 2" overlap in all directions.

Note: When using the prefabricated shelf, determine the desired height of the shelf and mark with a level line. Set tile up to that line on the back and sides of the niche. Butter the sides and back of the shelf with unmodified thin-set mortar and solidly embed it in the niche, resting on the previously installed tile. The shelf may be raised at the back to create a slope, or the tile may be set on a slope, to prevent water from pooling in the finished application.
