Raised Glass Kitchen Counter - Tempered or Regular?1/2' or 3/4?
I want to install a ÂfloatingÂ glass bar counter in my kitchen glued onto stainless steel cantilevered supports coming out from the granite counter top (supports drilled into granite). The glass will be about 6.5 ft long and 12" wide with a spread between posts of about 22" (6" overhang on either end as recommended by the glass company). The glass company is suggesting I use 1/2" annealed (regular) glass as opposed to the tempered glass since they say it will be stronger and resist chips better. I am concerned about safety if it should break. Can anyone recommend with is best in this application tempered or annealed and if Â½" is thick enough or if youÂd suggest 3/4". Also does anyone know the right glue to use to glue the glass to the stainless posts? Thank you.
