When installing a countertop, here are some things that need to be considered for a safe and secure installation:
Different countertops have different requirements:
- Solid countertops can have an overhang of 6 inches without any additional support
- Quartz countertops with 3 cm thickness can handle 14 inches overhang without any additional support
- Granite countertops with 3cm thickness can handle 10 inches overhang without any additional support
What are the different countertop supports that can be used to support countertops?
- Flat steel
An island countertop can have a standard overhang that measures 12 inches and this can allow for easier sitting and stool storage underneath. If you are planning to extend the counter, you can use under-counter supports like L-brackets, corbels or legs as this will keep your countertop safe, especially if there will be weight applied on it on a daily basis.
When planning to use countertop support brackets, you must consider the weight that will be applied to it and the type of project you are constructing. Support brackets are a must-have. This will keep you safe and prevent any accidents that can happen because of unsupported countertops. If you have children and pets, this can be especially useful for the safety of your family.
When you are using fragile materials, you must use support brackets, under-counter support, and corbels that are spaced equally and applied close together. Countertop brackets come in different sizes, lengths, thickness, and shapes so you must consider the different purposes and the standard overhang allowed for each countertop material to use.
