Federal Brace Introduces the Portland Gusseted Bracket

Posted on 07 October 2016 by CRadmin3

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.

Posted on 02 April 2015 by cradmin

REGSINKSTRAPThe Regent Sink Strap is an easy-to-use system for mounting kitchen sinks. With a supporting capacity of 400 lbs. per strap, when using the hanger brackets, the sink strap can be quickly installed by attaching the hanger brackets over the top of the cabinet dividers, utilizing the strength of the cabinets to support the sink. The average install time of the strap is less than five minutes. Only one strap is required for most situations, but when extra support is needed, two straps can be used doubling the supporting capacity to 800 lbs. It is packaged ready to use with all necessary hardware included, and can also be used in conjunction with the Sinkits LC Bracket by utilizing the included bridge pins. Because there is no need to drill into the countertop or rely on adhesives, this combination is a suitable system for repair work to mount or remount sinks after the countertop is already installed.
