Upholstery detailed description
The purpose of an L shaped angle bracket is to rectify an expected or unexpected problem due to inadequate framing.
Do I need an angle bracket for every wall upholstery installation?
No you don’t. Only in some cases, baseboards or crown moldings are too narrow. Sometimes framing are not in good condition or simply have a rounded edge. A ceiling may not have any nice moldings or not at all.
How do I use angle bracket with Clean Edge System™?
Cut an angle bracket to the same length as the CES track and place on the wall against the molding/framing. Fix with brad nails then add the Clean Edge System™. Or fit them at the same time if you feel confident. Proceed with the padding. Then insert the fabric between the CES and the angle bracket using a metal spatula.
An angle bracket behind the CES track creates a good grip for the fabric and compensate a lack of firm hold.
This product is often used at a ceiling line when there is no crown molding. Also inside speaker box or vents. When no frame is available, an angle bracket recreates that frame for holding the fabric in place. Here is an example. Let say there is a wall in the middle of a room dividing a large space. Both end of that wall don’t touch any other wall, only openings.It is a stand alone wall. Just fit angle bracket + CES along those openings. Yet, another place is by wooden beams.
In conclusion it is a very discrete piece of problem solving. If you would like to see some pictures, visit this site, try to find them!
Those brackets will not tear the fabric. They are made from white plastic like all the tracks.
