Upholstery detailed description
The purpose of an L shaped angle brackets is to rectify an expected or unexpected problem due to inadequate framing.
Do I need angle brackets for every wall upholstery installation?
No. Only in some cases, baseboards or crown moldings are not in a good shape. 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 brackets 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 by average 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 to hold 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 do touch any other wall, but just openings. Just fit angle brackets + 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. Angle brackets are made from white plastic like all the tracks.
