Countertop Support Bracket Front Mounting Plus

The Front Mounting Plus Bracket is the perfect choice for all floating shelves, vanities, countertops, and a lot more. This product is specifically created for providing support for granite and all solid surface materials that are usually used in high traffics or load applications like shower benches, vanities, granite countertops, and other forms of a commercial environment. A low profile gusset is added to significantly increase the bracket’s load rating. For general applications, the regular Front Mounting Bracket can get the work done and a Front Mounting Plus Bracket is not really needed.

These In-Wall Brackets are mainly created for applications involving granite and other types of a solid surface. When doing an old or new installation, the In-Wall Brackets can be placed directly to a masonry, stud, or with the use of a backing plate. This product is made of a 3/8 inch by 2 ½ inch A-36 steel. It’s also powder coated. These brackets have four ¼ inch countersunk holes located in the vertical plate to provide added stability to the bracket. This product also has a 35-degree bevel located on both the vertical and horizontal flanges. #12 wood screws that can be color-matched come with the product.

These In-Wall Brackets are available in seven convenient sizes and come in six various powder coat colors for installations where the product is going to be visible. The In-Wall Front Mounting Support Bracket can be used for solid surface and granite countertop with overhangs up to 24 inches. To correctly determine the size of the bracket that you’ll need, you just have to subtract 2 to 4 inches from the total length of the overhang. For example, a 10-inch overhang would need a support bracket that is 6 to 8 inches long. You can refer to the chart below for further information.

How to Successfully Hide the Front Mounting Plus Countertop Support Bracket

All of our products can be successfully hidden from view including these In-Wall Brackets. Once you get sheet-rock on your studs, you can start doing the following steps:
  1. The sheet rock located in the area of the stud where the bracket will be installed should be carefully removed.
  2. A wooden stud will be used for these In-Wall Brackets. You have to install wood blocking if you’ll be working on metal studs.
  3. After successfully mounting the In-Wall Bracket to the stud, you must make sure that the top of the bracket is on the same level as the granite placement. You have to shim the bracket if it looks like your stud wall is not square. Keep in minds that the shims should be placed not on the horizontal support but in between the stud and bracket.
  4. To successfully cover a bracket, you can use a “Quick Patch” sheet-rock kit after securing the support in place.
  5. It’s never a good idea to place the bracket directly on the sheet rock, especially when mounting in an exposed application. The sheet rock is not created to support heavy weights and will instantly crumble if used in heavy weight applications. Once this unfortunate thing happens, the support capacity will no longer be sufficient and its connection to the stud will no longer be solid.
