For 3cm stone (approx 1-3/16”), Pure Granite & Stone recommends supports anytime there are overhangs of 10″ or more. There’s a caveat. That’s as long as the overhang does not exceed 1/3 of the countertop width. If a narrow countertop has a big overhang, we recommend supports for smaller overhangs. We recommend a cantilevered bracket or corbel that matches your cabinets. The brackets should be spaced every 3′ to 4′.
