Corbels and brackets are architectural and design elements. Both inside and outside the home, office or commercial institution, both stand out. Adding additional support and decorative beauty wherever they are installed. If you have something in need of some support, wood corbels may be the answer. Inside a building they are seen supporting shelves, bar tops, counters and window sills. Outside a building they are a defining architectural component used to dress up roof lines along the eaves and gables. They are found under lintels, window stoops (sills), and as support for window boxes. (see shutter / planter ensembles)
DWL makes Corbels and decorative brackets supplied with a plated or non-plated option. Plating is the decorative pieces of wood and sometimes composite material attached to the top and back of a Corbel. You could say the Corbel is the piece between the plating on a bracket. It’s the combination of plating and corbel that form the bracket. Plating adds significantly to a Corbels overall design, strength and finished appearance. Plates also serve as a a mounting point for the Corbel.
At DWL we class Corbels and Brackets as, interior and exterior. See our style names described below.
