Free Hanging Shelf Bracket
Floating shelves, floating bathroom vanity, floating mantel or hearth, floating desk, floating shower seat/bench, all are supported by the Free Hanging Shelf Bracket. This bracket is the perfect concealed support bracket for supporting a floating bathroom vanity or floating shelf. Your choice of Steel or Solid Aluminum material.
**Please Note: The recommended bracket for shower benches is our Industrial Free Hanging Shelf Bracket.
This bracket is made to mount directly to the 2x4 wood studs inside your wall before the sheetrock goes up (If studs are metal, watch the video below before installing the Free Hanging Shelf Bracket) the Free Hanging Shelf Bracket must be mounted into wood studs to support the weight of the shelf, etc. We recommend hitting each of your 2x4 studs for maximum protection.
How to install the Free Hanging Shelf Bracket to Metal Studs:
By mounting above, as well as below the horizontal piece, this prevents any type of twisting of the horizontal piece. After the bracket is mounted cover the wall with the finished board of your choice.
How to Determine the Size Bracket You Will Need:
When measuring for length remember the horizontal piece is measured tip to tip. Remember to also include the part of the brace that will be inside of the wall [usually about 3 inches]. For example, if you have a 12-inch wide shelf you would stay 2-4 inches from the outer edge, plus the 3 inches inside the wall. Therefore, 12 inches minus 3 inches (from the outer edge) plus 3 inches (inside the wall) equals a 12-inch Shelf Bracket.
See our installation guide for the Free Hanging Shelf Bracket for more info before you order.
