Sold individually, this plasterboard floating shelf bracket is the type that we use in our solid oak floating plasterboard shelves up to 150mm depths. This completely concealed shelf bracket is the only floating shelf bracket designed specifically for use with a Gripit Brown fixing. Of our own design, this plasterboard shelf bracket solves the issues many customers have when fitting shelves to modern walls. We recommend this invisible shelf bracket for use with 9-15mm plasterboard walls only. You will require a 20mm flat drill bit for installing this fixing.
We offer two lengths of barrel with our plasterboard floating shelf brackets. Measuring 80mm or 120mm, this invisible shelf fixing is suitable for supporting most conventional shelf sizes. You can also use these floating shelf brackets to support mantels when used with correct spacings. The hidden shelf bracket fixes solely to plasterboard or drywall and has a rating of 4kgs per fixing (tested on 9mm plasterboard). If you are fitting larger depth or weight of shelves we recommend using our Floating Shelf Brackets and aligning the fixing points with stud work. For heavier duty shelf applications, you can use our Heavy Duty Floating Shelf Brackets.
For our plasterboard floating shelf brackets we recommend using four fixings per metre of shelf. (Based on a typical 150mm depth floating shelf). However you should use your own discretion when calculating fixing spacings. Fixing quantities should be based on the expected shelf usage and strength of the existing plasterboard wall.
We produce these floating shelf brackets with a specific diameter that ensures a snug fit in a 12.5mm mounting hole. This eliminates the need for a locking screw or knurling on the fixing to hold your shelf in place. We recommend using a 12.5mm HSS drill bit for drilling the shelf. We offset the screw thread to the barrel to give you fine levelling adjustment of the shelf during fitting.
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.
