I am looking to have our granite guy make a top for our prep table similar to the Omcan 41145 model. What is the best way to attach a topping rail so that it is secure?

I don't know if I'm being overly simplistic, but I thought the piece of granite's weight would keep it in place. I thought they used an epoxy to mount the backsplash pieces.

To clarify, I want to secure the refrigerated topping rail to the backsplash and side pieces. I suppose I could use epoxy for that as well.

Epoxy sounds somewhat permanent, are you sure you'd want to do that? Bolted metal bracket on the sides, something like you would see used to secure posts to beams for structural support. Home Depot.

One of my friends runs a granite countertops business and has stated to me that backsplashes are sealed to the horizontal surface with silicone adhesive.

In a regular kitchen setting i am not sure if they would use construction adhesive to attach it to the wall or silicone there as well. I'm told it's basically construction adhesive between the granite and the plywood that supports it.

I suspect that if the granite is all properly secure, you could silicone the topping rail to the granite backsplash and it wouldn't move for a long while, but i might prefer to have some metal brackets as well.

My mistake, I misunderstood. I would think you'd be able to set up some kind of bracket system.

Is it going up against a wall? maybe you could secure the topping rail to the wall at the right height.
