New Countertop Support Finishes – FINISH WITH PURPOSE

New Countertop Support Finishes – FINISH WITH PURPOSE

Charlotte, NC – March 6, 2018 – Federal Brace is debuting new finishes in several popular products, in accord with increased demand for variety. The Arrowwood and Brunswick Low-Profile Countertop Supports, two of their original premium brackets that have been immensely popular throughout the company’s nine years in business, are both being released in a matte black powder coat. The Liberty Hidden Countertop Brace, previously available only in raw steel is now being released in a matte white powder coat. All three designs are offered in a variety of sizes, from 8 inches up to 24 inches, in order to support countertop overhangs and shelves of various lengths.

Federal Brace’s low-profile supports can be used for overhangs, wall hung counters or shelving, remaining decorative while staying out of the way of knees and bar stools, making them perfect for a breakfast area, bar, or any entertainment area. Generally having a ¼” thickness, these gusseted braces can hold up to 500 pounds per brace. Federal Brace’s hidden supports, like the Liberty, are used on countertop applications and drilled into the cabinetry substrate to remain completely hidden and unseen despite supporting up to 375 pounds per brace. Having more finish offerings will not only increase the options available to customers but allow for greater variety of interior styling for designers.
