Topic: Fitting of Marble Counter in Bathroom

Hi everybody, I am having trouble fixing marble counter top in my bathroom which has nothing underneath and is suppose to be left hanging. According to my architect this can be done by fixing 2 angles on the wall and these can support the weight of the counter top. But I have tried fixing the angles on the wall by drilling and using steel bit but the angles come out and are not able to take the required weight. The size of the angle is 20" on one side and 4" on the other. Any help in this regard is hightly appreciated. Thanks

Dear sir, thank you for your assistance on this subject. I have attached the drawings of the bathroom along with the details of the above counter basin. I have already bought a wooden ply type sheet around half inch thick to be used under the counter. I hope this information will suffice but if you still have any questions please contact me immediately. I hope that the attached files are clear. Thanks

Hi Gautam.

Fabricate L angle (2"x 8 mm) frame of size 1'9" x 6'0" with 2 inter support(6'0" side)

Fix the frame on the wall with required anchor fastener on all three sides having
frame flat surface on top

Fix water proof ply on the frame then put marble

Fix marble skirting (back splash ) of 6" ht,on all three sides

Fix 9" ht 19mm water proof ply with laminate finish below the counter vertically
on the front side of the counter (6'0"), this will cover the bottle trap of basin

I hope this will solve your issue

Dear Gunaji, many thanks for your help. But I am not able to understand this fully as I am not a technical person. Is it possible for you to send me a drawing for this? I hope that it is not asking for too much! And the other point is that the problem I face is fixing the frame in the wall on the three sides. We are not able to fix it properly as the screws come out of the wall whenever little pressure is applied on the frame. Can you please tell me how to screw the frame to the wall so that it can take the required weight? Thanks
