Tech/Engineering / installation instructions for air conditioner
English term or phrase: support brackets
Support brackets may be used.

a wooden strip should be used nailed to the outside wall in conjunction with sill support angle brackets.

Isn't 'support bracket' a bit redundant? Is it only 'support' in French?

Thank you,

Console/Support
Explanation:
A support bracket is the same as an angle bracket so you have the choice to say either;

console à équerre
ou
console
ou
support
GDT

I think the reason that they use brackets is to indicate that the support is made of a 90° angle piece of steel.
