How high should a shower curb be?

The shower pan curb must be a minimum of 2 inches above the top of the drain. This is common building code in the U.S. For example, if you have a 1/4 inch per foot slope, and the curb is 3 feet from the drain, the curb must raise 1 1/4 inch from the shower floor. Of course, this is for the finished shower.
