Carolina bracket from Federal Brace
The 500-pound carrying capacity can hold a variety of materials.
Federal Brace is distributing a new size and finish of the Carolina commercial support: a bracket providing industrial level strength for a variety of commercial and residential projects.
The Carolina is versatile and can be integrated into home office workstations, heavy-duty storage shelves, as well as larger commercial projects such as schools, hotels, and banks.
Installed directly to the side of the wooden stud in the wall, the Carolina support made from strong, 11 gauge material promises strength while providing the increasingly popular “invisible” look. The 500-pound carrying capacity can hold a variety of natural stones and other materials, and the new white finish offers even more options to match hidden bracket project designs.
The Commercial Carolina bracket is engineered for heavy-duty lifting in a variety of different applications. For example, this support would be ideal for service window/reception counters, workstations, locker rooms, bars, and more. In addition, the Carolina can be installed in compliance with ADA standards to create accessible public restrooms, dining areas, gyms, and more.
REPORT: Toward wildfire relief
A CNBC report examines how California is looking to the timber industry for possible help.
As California’s largest wildfire on record continues to burn, the state forestry association wants to change rules and regulations to make it easier for private industry to thin forested land.
This CNBC report examines the state’s desperation for a plan to fight forest fires, and the realization that the timber industry can play a meaningful role.
Some of the stats presented in the article include the California Forestry Association’s estimate that tree density is higher than its ever been. 150 years ago in the Sierras, there were roughly 40 trees per acre. Now there are hundreds.
Also, the U.S. Forest Service estimates the number of dead trees in California is about 129 million. Wildfires feed on these dead trees.
The Mendocino Complex Fire – the largest fire in the state’s history – continues to burn in Northern California. More than 280,000 acres have been burned.
