Our floating shelves are primarily decorative, and are usually used to display a number of small items such as photos, trophies and ornaments. The weight-bearing capacity of every shelf depends very much on the type and quality of wall into which it is being installed. If you need your floating shelves to hold more weight, we can supply a range of brackets which will bear up to approximately 50kg per shelf. Our floating shelves with batten fixings,when installed onto a plasterboard wall, may not be suitable for heavier loads such as books, but can be used very successfully to hold light ornaments, photos etc. Our batten fixings can also be used on a masonry wall, and can hold up to 10kg. Please note: any weights quoted include the weight of the shelf.
Because of the unique fixing system we use, our alcove shelves are able to hold up to 50kg per shelf; comfortably holding all of your books and more.
If you have any particular requirements, please feel free to contact us and we can advise you.
Our shelves with brackets (2cm & 3.5cm) are suitable for holding heavier loads. On our 2cm shelves each bracket will support approximately 12 kg; our 3.5cm shelf brackets will support approximately 15kg. If you have any particular requirements, please feel free to contact us and we can advise you; it may be as simple as supplying you with a few extra brackets!
