Federal Brace Introduces New Carolina Size & Finish

Posted on 14 August 2018 by cradmin

Federal Brace has begun to distribute a new size and finish of the Carolina commercial support, a bracket providing industrial level strength for a variety of commercial and residential projects. The versatile Carolina support bracket can be integrated into home office workstations, heavy-duty storage shelves, as well as larger commercial projects such as schools, hotels, and banks.

Installed directly to the side of the wooden stud in the wall, the Carolina support made from strong, 11 gauge material promises strength while providing the increasingly popular ‘invisible’ look. The 500-pound carrying capacity can hold a variety of natural stones and other materials, and the new white finish offers even more options to match hidden bracket project designs.

The Commercial Carolina bracket is engineered for heavy-duty lifting in a variety of different applications. For example, this support would be ideal for service window/reception counters, workstations, locker rooms, bars, and more. In addition, the Carolina can be installed in compliance with ADA standards to create accessible public restrooms, dining areas, gyms and more.

Federal Brace Introduces the Portland Gusseted Bracket

Posted on 07 October 2016 by cradmin

federal-brace-portlandFederal Brace announced a new addition to its Designer Support Line. The Portland Gusseted Countertop Support Bracket, a unique bracket with marine inspirations, is a perfect fit in modern, transitional, or eclectic kitchens. With a circular cut-out, not unlike a boat’s porthole, this bracket is go-to for beach houses, yachts, luxury houseboats, and much more. Whether for use on a wall-hung counter, such as a receptionist desk, serving counter, or other commercial location, or an island overhang to create an entertainment or breakfast bar, the Portland provides complete support and strength, keeping your cabinets safe and your countertops, theoretically, afloat.

The strong central gusset with the decorative cut-out provides additional support between the flanges. Made of ¼ in. thick, high-quality steel, the Portland has an ample carry capacity of more than 500 pounds per individual bracket. The Portland Designer Countertop Bracket is available in 3 sizes for varying overhang lengths and two finishes. The 10-, 12-, and 16- in. brackets, which are suggested for overhangs of up to 14-, 16-, and 20- in. respectively, come in a sleek stainless steel, to match modern appliances, and a raw steel that can be painted or glazed to match any desired color or any existing décor.

Federal Brace Adds Lincoln Top Plate Support to Hidden Countertop Support LIne

Posted on 05 October 2015 by cradmin

federal brace lincoln hidden supportFederal Brace added the Lincoln Top Plate Support to its line of hidden countertop supports as a way to achieve the floating countertop look. It includes a central plate flanked by two extending supporting arms that reinforce any overhang. The new design is made for mounting on a half wall, and when placed side-by-side on the length of the half wall, it eliminates having to route or create a special wall treatment under the counter, reports the company. The unseen support is designed to keep countertop end users from banging their knees. The support provides the strength and durability of a 1/4-in.steel bracket without having to connect the steel buttress of a heavy-duty bracket. The 1-ft.-long by 3-1/2-in-wide bracket is designed to run side-by-side along the length of a cabinet base, allowing for the elimination of a 2 by 4 from the wall top plate, saving money on materials. The bracket comes with a  step-by-step guide and designed slots that fasten without hitting nails in wall framework, made to make installation easier.

federal brace corbel converterFederal Brace introduced the new Corbel Converter, which takes the average, static wooden corbel and makes it a convertible design element. The patented technology incorporated into the Corbel Converter gives the home owner, designer and contractor flexibility in design and ease in installation. It ends the need for climbing under cabinets or using fasteners to mount your corbels.

The Corbel converter allows you to easily mount your corbels from outside your cabinets, even with the countertops in place. It also gives you the ability to swap out corbels when desired and provides the support the countertop overhang needs but will not get from a standard decorative wooden corbel. They are usable with any solid wood corbel.
