Product Description

Our heavy duty floating shelf brackets are among the strongest available on the market, rated at 40kg load per bracket. We supply these with our HD floating shelves in depths of up to 400mm. They come provided with two Spax retaining screws complete with Fischer UX8 wall plugs. We recommend these heavy duty floating shelf brackets for use with solid walls only. You can use the wall brackets in plasterboard wall situations but they will require fixing into stud work. You will require 8mm and 14mm masonry drill bits for installing this fixing.

The incredibly strong 12mm solid bar runs through the centre of the shelf bracket and is set into the wall. This removes the weak spot often found in other types of floating shelf bracket. This means that you can use these wall brackets for supporting deep floating shelves. Our heavy duty floating shelf brackets can support bedside tables and even sink basins making them truly versatile and reliable.

For lighter duty floating shelf applications please see our Multi Wall Floating Shelf Brackets or Light Duty Floating Shelf Brackets. As we design all of our own fixings we should have a solution for almost every wall and shelf type.

Fitting our Heavy Duty Floating Shelf Brackets

For installation of these heavy duty floating shelf brackets we recommend a 14mm hole to secure the main shelf pin and two 8mm holes for the retaining screws. To achieve the 40kg load rating we also recommend that you install the shelf brackets using our chemical resin method. Please head to the “Video” tab above for fitting and weight testing videos.

For our heavy duty floating shelf brackets we recommend using three fixings per meter of shelf. This is based on a typical 400mm depth oak floating shelf. However you should use your own discretion when calculating fixing spacings. Fixing quantity should be based on the expected shelf usage and strength of the wall.

We set these floating shelf brackets into our own range of oak floating shelves with a routed pocket that clears the fixing plate. You will need to do this in order to achieve a flush fitment to the wall. This can be done easily with the addition of our Heavy Duty Shelf Bracket Routing Jig and a standard 12.7mm router bit.

If you are unsure of which fixing might be best for your application then don’t hesitate to contact us and we should be able to advise you.

All our shelf fixings are of our own design and they are made solely for BespOak Interiors. Consequently they are only avaiable to buy direct. Please contact us for information on bulk pricing options for any of the fixings in our range.

    Ordered these for a couple of shelving projects, service was excellent, prompt delivery.
    The best heavy duty brackets I could find with enough length to cut down if needed.
    I would thoroughly recommend these brackets.

  2. Christopher Fudge

  3. Freddy

    Thank you for the brackets, really quick service and really good quality

  4. James B

    Great product – Used correctly with the resin you could hang a battleship off of these. Hung solid 30mm oak shelves from mine in to Thermalite block so I also switched the position of the cross bar to vertical (requires recessing in to the plaster as opposed to the shelf) for extra support.

  5. Andrew Winfield

    Great service. I wanted a strong fitting for floating shelf in kitchen to take all my wife’s cooking books. I rang BespOak first for advice then ordered two brackets with resin plus the drill and auger bit. All assembled as per instructions and shelf is as firm as a rock.

  6. V Miller

    Seriously strong! I used the chemical resin and the bracket is solid 💪

  7. Phillip Lys

    I was impressed with the speed at which they arrived and the product itself, however I have a few warnings as my install was not so easy.
    I was installing on a pre tiled wall which was not a hassle, I drilled out the correct hole sizes, but the bracket would not fit flush on the tile surface. This was due to the fact that the weld is on the short side (wall side) and creates a 3-4mm bump (weld bead). To overcome this I had to do some fancy grinding to remove weld splatter and make the wall hole much bigger to accommodate the weld bead. It would be much better if the units were induction welded so not giving this problem.

    The eight heavy duty wall brackets were delivered on time. Well packaged and fit for purpose. the job was completed on time two days later. I did however have to make the front of the holes slightly larger to accommodate the welds on the wall end.
