Oh, like that's going to work!  The volume of water comming off that shower will turn that shower area into a I inch-deep pond surrounded on 4 sides with mini falls.  I'd love to find out who thought up that one.  Monona

I am currently involved in construction of two new laboratories and was instructed by the city commercial building review department to include a 1" high curb around the shower area to keep hazmat from entering the floor drain in the event of a spill.  Also, the curb has to be sloped on both sides to allow accessibility.

Best regards,
