K+BB Product Innovator Award 2015
Federal Brace has been selected as a Product Innovator for our 2015 product release, the Lincoln Top Plate. Selections were made by a team of board members and trend setters in the kitchen and bath industry for Kitchen + Bath Business online’s digital magazine. Other selected brands include KOHLER, Blu Bathworks, ROHL, and a few other carefully curated products from other industry leaders. Pam Goldstein, one of the judges and a member of K+BB’s Editorial Advisory Board, as well as the president of Atlanta-based Master Kitchen Bath Designer and Pam Sanchez Design, said of the Lincoln Top Plate, “[it] is a game changer for countertop installation, giving clean aesthetics with hidden safety and structural integrity.” She went on to say it will likely replace the more expensive and unwieldy steel rods and corbels that are usually used to bolster countertops. Federal Brace created the Lincoln Top Plate with this very purpose in mind - revolutionizing the idea of what a countertop support is and should be, making it stronger, sleeker, and safer within a home, office, or other environment.
The Lincoln Top Plate is comprised of a central plate flanked by two supporting arms made of quarter-inch thick high-grade steel and is a foot in width with 10”, 12” or 14” arm extensions. The unique design and unfailing support make it possible for a 2x4 to be eliminated from the wall top plate, and since no routing or special wall treatment is necessary, installation becomes quick and simple using Federal Brace’s step-by-step guide. Multiple hole locations provide the ability to avoid hitting nails in the framework of your wall when attaching the plate . The Lincoln Top Plate is designed to run side-by-side on top of the knee wall and the hidden element of the support allows decor, countertops, and cabinetry to be the focal point, making it the perfect addition to any style of design.
