Federal Brace Introduces The Portland Gusseted Countertop Support Bracket

Oct 12, 2016

Federal Brace is excited to announce a new edition to their Designer Support Line. The Portland Gusseted Countertop Support Bracket, a unique bracket with marine inspirations, is a perfect fit in any 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 and, made of ¼” thick, high-quality steel, the Portland has an ample carry capacity of over 500 pounds per individual bracket. The Portland Designer Countertop Bracket will be available in 3 sizes for varying overhang lengths and two finishes. The 10”, 12”, and 16” brackets, which are suggested for overhangs of up to 14”, 16”, and 20” 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 decor, the Portland is adaptable to the homeowner’s wishes.

“We started by helping people solve a problem. Through this process we ended up with a innovative solution and superior quality products that should be an industry standard.” , DJ Toal, VP Sales for Federal Brace.

Safety is vital when considering products to be used in your home. A countertop overhang is an application where particular attention should be placed on making the sturdiest, most durable support structure possible. While standard corbels sold in the market today may look good, they do not provide significant support. The key hole attachment of corbels does not allow for high carrying capacity. Unfortunately, the alternatives to corbels have traditionally been very industrial in appearance and very hard to source.
