Scored Scroll Iron Corbel

Using iron corbels for your kitchen counter helps provide the necessary support that keeps your counter strong and sturdy.  Generally, any counter top that has a hangover of more than eight inches should be supported with some sort of counter top support brackets.  And if your countertop is of a heavy material like granite or marble, then you need corbels that are strong enough to provide support and sustain the weight of such heavy materials.

Iron corbels are popular because they are extremely sturdy and practically indestructible.  Meaning, no matter how big or heavy your countertop is, an iron corbel will support it without any issue of breaking down or bending.  All you need to do is to ensure that the corbel has been mounted properly and securely.  On the other hand if you use corbels made of wood or other materials, a delicate or carved design will fail to provide the necessary support to the heavy countertop.  They also have a higher probability of chipping, scratching getting damaged because the materials are so much softer than iron.  Another added benefit is that an iron counter top support bracket will not rot or decay with use as is the case with wooden corbels.

Since strength is not an issue where iron is concerned, you can choose ornately designed iron corbels to further add to the beauty of your kitchen counter.  Metropolis Iron’s large selection of counter top support brackets provides a designer option for any kitchen!   We can even custom design one for you.
