Getting started on DIY shelves

A little bit of planning goes a long way when it comes to installing shelf brackets. We suggest measuring the space where you want to place the shelves, noting the length and breadth of shelving required.

Our load ratings are tested with the below specifications:

  • Brackets are between 415mm apart in distance.
  • Bracket is fastened to wall using shortest side of bracket.

Double check your wall bracket weight capacity

Please refer to the detailed information about load rating and test specifications on our website. Importantly, the weight capacity of all shelf brackets will always be dependent on:

  • Evenly distributing weight across the shelf
  • Distance between brackets (a 415mm gap is recommended)
