Seeking advice from the group.
Anyone have any real life experience using these legs for base cabinets
supporting granite countertop?
My countertops will be 1 1/4" thick not the lighter 3/4" slabs.
Specs show 450lb/leg rating thus installation pattern...
x x = 1800lb
x x = 2250lb
All seems good, but what about real world experience?
Thanks in advance,
I installed my own 1-1/4" granite counter tops. The largest piece was 24" x
9': handled by two people. It was probably in the neighborhood of 325 lbs. I
don't recall what the quarry guy told be for lbs/sf but it was no where near
the load ratings that you are referring to.
You should be fine.
just to make a note-
those legs are meant to be installed in situations where there is will
be no racking forces on them, such as base cabinets that are fastened
to a wall. I'd be leery of using them as the only support for an
island or a long peninsula.
also, if you are putting a lot of weight on top of the cabinet make
sure that the cabinet is designed to transfer the weight to the legs.
yeah, I know, it doesn't answer your question, but others have done
that. ; ^ )
All of these base units are to be secured to back wall, even the peninsular
plan will be up against a supporting wall for bar top so no shear should
involved. I always build for disaster anyway, that is why my question, By
spec these leveler/feet should support the weight, and I will design base
cabs to transfer all weight to the legs.
No word of warning so far, so I think I will go with this method.
