October 25, 2016 – Charlotte, NC – The Harrison Top Plate is joining Federal Brace’s line of award-winning hidden countertop supports. This unique brace includes a central steel plate with two arms extending from each side, making it the perfect solution for a knee or pony wall application where support is needed on both sides for a lovely extended breakfast bar, reception counter, or the perfect serving area for upcoming holiday parties and entertaining guests or clientele. The gloss black of the Harrison Top Plate is sleek, modern and its hidden profile gives your countertops the look of floating. Many of the other brackets in this line, including the Product Innovator Award winning Lincoln Top Plate (2015), and Anthem Corner Brace (2016), have been met with customer excitement and been acclaimed by professionals and trendsetters within the kitchen, bath, and commercial construction industries.
The Harrison Top Plate is meant to be installed side-by-side for the length of the wall, eliminating the need to route the 2×6 top plate. Made with Federal Brace’s signature high-quality design, craftsmanship, and materials, this bracket ensures security and safety of your countertops with a 375 pound carry capacity when installed using the suggested guidelines. The Harrison comes in three sizes for a multitude of applications, with either 10”, 12”, or 14” supports with a 3.25” center plate that attaches to the central wall. The Countersunk Countertop Brace Fastener Kit (Part No: 39988), sold separately on Federal Brace’s website, contains all necessary parts for the application and installation of each brace. Federal Brace recommends that overhangs extend no further than 4” beyond the bracket length and offer a range of installation guides, and ideas for use on their website.
