The curb should have a 1 to 1-1/2 degree slope into the shower so that water off the drip rail will not pool, or run out of the shower.

Bottom Wipe with Drip Rail

The fins on the bottom wipe are not ment to wipe on the curb surface like a windshield wipper. If your curb is built correctly there be a slope into the shower. The fins should just touch the curb with the door installed in the center of the curb in the closed position. As the door is opened out the fins bend to allow the door to pass over the higher outside edge of the curb. This seal clips onto the bottom edge of the glass. It is not necessary to silicone it onto the glass. Typically this seal is replaced every couple of years. On installations where the curb is flat a in.Threshold Bar in. can be added to prevent water from leaking out of the shower. The threshold should be mounted just outside the bottom wipe fins.
