The GF-1131 Corbel is 9-1/2" tall, 4-3/4" wide, 5-1/4" deep, and has a Gold finish.
These corbels are for decorative use only. These should not be used for any structural support.
Corbels have literally been around since the Stone Age. Their primary purpose was to help carry the weight of buildings - but the Greeks, Romans, and many other cultures helped turn them into true works of art!
Below countertops and cabinets, along doorways and arches, there are countless applications for these beautiful pieces, and they are incredibly easy to install. Made from polyurethane or cast resin, they are lightweight, easy to handle, and amazingly durable.
If you’re looking for an elegant way to adorn your home or business, our gold foil products are the perfect way to achieve your desired look. With their intricate design and 18k gold foil coating, our gold foil products have an elegant look that is sure to satisfy all who desire robust grandeur and beauty in their home or business.
Please take extra care in handling and working with gold foil pieces while completing your projects as the foil is delicate and susceptible to showing every dent and slightest damage. We recommend applying a coat of Rustoleum Clear Gloss Lacquer, available at your local hardware store, on all gold foil pieces to prevent peeling and strengthen the gold foil.
Before you Begin Installation -
To strengthen the gold and help prevent peeling, be sure to apply a coat of Rustoleum Clear Gloss Lacquer over the entire piece, and allow to dry well.
Protecting the Gold -
DO NOT use nails or screws on the foiled surface. This will result in chipping and flaking of the surface, and typical methods for filling nail or screw holes will not blend with the gold surface. Instead, use Loctite brand PL Premium adhesive exclusively for installation. This adhesive is strong enough to support the product alone and can be found at most local hardware stores.
Installing with Adhesive -
Use an appropriate amount of Loctite PL Premium adhesive on the back of each piece, and press gently but firmly to the desired surface. Hold momentarily while the adhesive sets.

Our polyurethane corbels are decoration only and are not load bearing.
Lightly mark with a pencil where your decor will be placed using a level to make sure it will be plumb when installed.
Dry fit your pieces before applying the adhesive.
Many of our decorative pieces have very intricate details and because of their final location can be very hard to finish once installed. We recommend painting your decor before installing it. You can then touch up any areas that need attention after the installation is complete.
The adhesive should be beaded along the touching edges of the wall and then a few small nails will hold the decor in place while the adhesive sets. You can use any adhesive that is rated for use with polyurethane (check the back of the label) -- we have had great success using Red Devil Construction Adhesive, Loctite's Powergrab and PL Premium Polyurethane Adhesive, all of which work well and are readily available at most home improvement stores.
On the back side, run a 1/4" continuous bead of adhesive around the outer edge of the decor.
Place the decor using your marks to align. Verify that the decor is level before firmly pushing into position. If necessary, use masking tape or small finish nails to hold the decor in place until the adhesive dries. Do not nail or screw into our gold foil products.
Clean up any adhesive mishaps with a cloth.
Apply caulk to the edges to create the appearance that the decor is part the wall. Touch up with paint as needed.
Most uDecor moldings are made from architectural polyurethane, which makes them waterproof and very long-lasting. Order 1 foot samples of your favorite crown molding, casing, or baseboard to make sure you love it!
