Making supports for pot rack


I have a pot rack that I'll be installing my new kitchen remodel. I have two sheets of 36x24 stainless steel backsplash I want to install behind it. Mounting for the pot rack won't hit the studs. I'm thinking about cutting out the drywall just shy of the 36x24 panels and filling with CDX plywood then installing the backsplash over the cdx. After then I would drill through the steel and install the rack into the cdx. I'm curious if CDX can handle the weight of a fully loaded pot rack. If I'm going about this the wrong way please let me know. My contractor is out of the area. http://www.kitchensource.com/pot-racks/od104ch.htm

I keep going over it in my head. I now think he best solution is to cut a strip of drywall wherever my mounting holes will be. Scab in a support then put some drywall back up. Cover with the backsplash and mount. So much easier and just as good if not better.

The stainless steel might hold the rack all by itself. Try it. If it doesn't, 1/2" plywood plus the stainless will hold it for sure.

That is some thick s/s you have there.

Back when I used to sell it for this purpose we used rather thin 22ga material...
(using mastic adhesive like liquid nails and notched trowel).

Pot Racks are designed to hold heavy stuff for long periods...
interrupted by torquing when things get taken off and put back on.

For new construction we would recommend letting in 3/4" ply to the studs.
After the walls are up... some 2X blocking between.

For situations like this, as TarheelTerp mentioned, 2x backing is the best solution.
