This bracket is full size, i.e. to fit a 225mm width shelf (standard scaffold board).

Our Scaffold Board Shelf Brackets are the ideal partner to the full width standard or chunky Scaffold Board. Their industrial charm lends itself perfectly to the ruggedness of the board and gives a sturdy support for the shelf and it's contents.

The brackets are available not only in the classic "raw steel" look, but also in a range of exciting colours. Try one of our scorched shelves with a black bracket for a classy pairing, or why not go a little more funky with a Coloured Board in blue and contrast with a yellow bracket??

This bracket is designed specifically to fit our Scaffold Board and would usually be used as a pair on most sizes of board, although you may wish to use a set of three or even four on larger sizes (see recommendations below). Also the difference between the 30mm and 40mm sizes is more an aesthetic difference, with the 40mm size tending to look better on larger boards.

How long should a bracket be for a 12 inch shelf? ›

Plan to use brackets that are just a bit shorter than the depth of the shelves. For example, if the desired shelf is 12 inches deep, the supporting legs of the bracket must be at least 8 inches but no more than 11 inches. You don't have to make all shelves the same depth.

How big of a bracket do I need for my shelf? ›

Measure the Ledge or Shelf

The size of the shelf will determine the length of the bracket necessary to support it. The bracket should be at least 2/3 the length of the shelf to support it. For example, if your shelf is 36 inches long, then a 24-inch bracket will be sufficient.

What size are scaffold board brackets? ›

Our scaffold board brackets are perfect for that rustic industrial look. Handmade and stress tested by ourselves, they are available in sizes from 100mm up to 300mm (internal size for shelf). Hand bent from 6mm x 40mm mild steel, they are very strong and each bracket will support up to 20kg in weight (40kg per pair).

How far apart should brackets be for a 24 inch shelf? ›

For light to medium loads, shelving brackets should be spaced no more than 24 inches apart. For longer wire shelving, attach a bracket at least every 48 inches. For heavier loads, increase the size of your brackets and decrease the space between them.

Do shelf brackets have to be the same width as the shelf? ›

The longest part of the bracket goes against the wall underneath the shelf bracket. The length of the longest part should be around three quarters the width of the main shelving unit.

How much can a shelf overhang a bracket? ›

Ensure shelves are properly sized to the brackets used — the front edges of shelves should not overhang the lips on the end of the bracket and the ends of shelves should not overhang end brackets by more than eight inches.

How to choose a bracket for a shelf? ›

Compatibility is a crucial factor when choosing the right shelf bracket for your needs. The type of shelf you're installing will greatly influence your choice of shelf brackets. For instance, heavy-duty shelves require robust brackets—often made of sturdy metal—to ensure they can withstand the weight.

How far from end should shelf brackets be? ›

Shelves for heavy loads should have their support brackets held by long screws going well into each of the wall studs at 16-inch intervals. Keep overhangs at each shelf end to 8 inches or less. Lighter loads can be held by supports screwed into every other stud at 32-inch intervals.

How many brackets for a 72 inch shelf? ›

A: We recommend 4 brackets for a 72 inch shelf. 2 large brackets hold a 36 inch shelf that is 10 inches deep very well, and you will be happy with how 4 can hold a shelf this size.

How long is a full length scaffold board? ›

Height will sometimes be referred to as scaffold board thickness. With that in mind, you might be wondering what the standard scaffold board size is. The standard is as follows: 38mm thickness, a width of 225mm, and a length of up 3.9m (13ft).

What is the minimum gap between scaffold boards? ›

38mm thick. Transom spacing should be 1.2m or less dependent on the load class. All scaffold boards should be inspected before use and the maximum overhang from the last transom is 150mm and minimum overhang should be 50mm. Warping or twisting occurs naturally when exposed to dampness and dry conditions.

For each 3m long shelf you will receive: 2 x End Brackets. 1 x Middle Bracket. 1 x 3m Scaffolding Board.

What is the rule of thumb for shelf brackets? ›

Rules of Thumb for Brackets:

- It is always the longest arm of the bracket (the one with a screw hole) that should be attached to the wall. And it's two screws in the shelf. - The guideline is that the length of the bracket (the part that is attached to the shelf) should be at least 4/5 of the shelf depth.

How many brackets per foot of shelf? ›

Supporting brackets for most shelves should be spaced no more than 24 inches apart for light to medium loads (15 to 20 pounds per foot). This means that the vertical slotted pilasters must be spaced at about that distance from one another on the wall.

What is the ratio of brackets to shelf width? ›

In general, you can use a 1:2 ratio of bracket to shelf length. So for a 36-inch shelf, you will need an 18-inch bracket.

Does the long or short side of a shelf bracket go on the wall? ›

You should fit shelf brackets with the longer arm against the wall and the shorter one under the shelf. Remember, the length of the longer arm will show you how closely you can fit the shelves on top of each other.

How to determine the length of floating shelves? ›

Measure the exact size of the wall space where you intend to install your floating shelves. These numbers will help you estimate what sizes of shelves would work best. For example, if you have a wall that is 6 feet long and would like a shelf that goes halfway across the wall, a 3 foot long shelf would be needed.
