Do you want to use a Full Slab of Marble Granite Caesarstone or similar Stone as an Island Benchtop?
The Stone Guy has the solution for you. Even if you only want to go to, 1000mm Stone Benchtop. On a Standard Island Benchtop Cabinet you would have 400mm over hang which would be too much for Marble Granite and Caesarstone type products normally.
With our System you can and right upto the full slab width.
What Additional Requirements are Needed?
Your Island Benchtop Cabinets need to have the proper adjustable Legs or better still the Standard Kick Panel Construction. Both of which need to be BOLTED to the Substrate aka your FLOOR!. As you are creating a CANTILEVER on the Island Bench. There are tipping forces at play so you don’t want the Island Benchtop and Kitchen Benchtop to Topple over.
The Stone Guy requires that additional bracing is done to the Gables of the internal cabinets of the Island Bench – aka bracing. Double Gables are fine and standard practice from the better cabinet makers. We suggest using a Double Rear Panel. We also require a SOLID TIMBER RAIL usually Pine. Which can be vinyl wrapped to suit your cabinetry, fixed to the front edge as it normally would be with a cross brace where our Cantilever Braces are going to sit.
We provide you with all the necessary Technical Documents for the system to work with the Cabinetry
Our Island Benchtop Supports are a great choice for supporting Heavy Benchtops such as Marble Granite, Engineered in an application where no sub wall exists. With the benchtop extends directly off the base cabinets.
They Must be Tough?
Our Island Benchtop Supports are! They are made solid steel measuring on 12mm thick and 65mm wide. Running through the cabinet Carcass, extending the length of the overhang. Minus either the approved overhang for the product or level it back 70mm so it stays from view.
Base of the Support the Flange mounts via two screws (the screws are provided with the Benchtop support) to the inside of the cabinet face frame. The flange is short, hidden from view and does not interfere with the operation of the drawers.
The installation is a very simple process. A 12.5mm x 65mm slot is cut in the rear of the cabinets Carcass and finishing panel for the brackets to rest in. The brackets are then attached to the cabinet by way of a small flange with two screws. The flange is short enough so that it doesn’t interfere with the drawers or doors.
The Island Benchtop support runs through the cabinet and rests in a 12.5mm x 65mm notch in the back side of the cabinet.
Before the Stone Benchtop is mounted we suggest that the installer apply a bead of “Liquid Nail or approved adhesive” for the Stone Benchtop”to the top of the support.
Once mounted the Stone Benchtop Island support creates a cantilever, leveraging the weight of the Stone Benchtop as well as the 12mm Brace. It’s a great bracket and perfect for most Stone Benchtop Islands.
To support the ends we use our patented Island Extension Brackets that are mechanically fastened to the adjacent Island Bracket allowing us to support overhangs on up to three sides of the Kitchen Island. The island support system can also be modified to support an overhang on all four sides of an island.
