Yes. Our Palmer stands are the ideal compliment to your stone vanities…the perfect marriage. You supply the top, and Palmer supplies the stand in virtually any size, configuration, and finish. Some of Palmer’s best dealers nationwide are specialty stone and tile distributors such as Renaissance Tile, Artistic Tile, Tile Showcase, and many others. Partnering with Palmer will open your business to a whole new source of revenue. You will no longer have to send your clients to other businesses to acquire a stand for your tops…you can now satisfy that request in house. A stone dealer has the benefit of a captive, qualified customer base that actually needs washstands...use this to your advantage!
No. The tops of all our legs are solid, and will provide a bearing surface for your stone top measuring between 1.0” diameter and 2.25”-diameter. Additionally, we supply a tube of silicone with every order which is applied to the top of the leg where it contacts the stone, acting as both an adhesive and a “cushion” to prevent stress at this point.
This is a definite “maybe”. The various grades of stone differ in their strength…some extremely strong, others somewhat fragile. Palmer can provide additional support to the front of the counter in the form of an extra leg(s), or a vertical riser(s). For a wide double-sink vanity configuration, a center leg can be located between the sinks where it will not interfere with the user. This can be seen in our three and four-leg configurations. For a single-sink extra wide vanity, a riser can be used for extra support in the middle of the span, when a center leg extending to the floor would not be practical. This front riser, shown in our XL model, can be positioned in the middle of the span, or at any point along the front horizontal cross member, and multiple front risers can be used. In lieu of Palmer risers and extra legs, a wooden sub-structure can be fabricated on site to support the span of stone, and this structure can be concealed behind a front stone apron.
The Palmer leg systems are both structural and decorative, and must be installed according to published instructions, using the included hardware and fasteners for safety purposes.
