Chemical Concepts has introduced two new pieces of overhang support equipment - the CounterBalance plate and the IslandBalance bracket. The CounterBalance plate is designed to attach to stud walls supporting overhangs on raised bar countertops, and the IslandBalance bracket is designed to support overhangs on island and peninsula countertops. Both of these products eliminate the need for corbels, can support the weight of granite and install in minutes, reports the company. The CounterBalance is made of 7-gauge HRPO steel and provides invisible support for a clean look. The IslandBalance supports overhangs up to 18 inches, and is designed to work on the left or right of cabinet walls.
