Iron Shelf Bracket with Lip

Regular price $8.00 Sale

Our best-selling Iron Shelf Brackets are available in several sizes to fit your open shelving projects. What sets our brackets apart? We take extra care throughout; using locally sourced high-quality steel, precise metal bending, sanded corners, careful finishes and we even offer professional help with sizing and installation.

INCLUDES: One hand forged shelf bracket with 1" wide flat bar steel AND necessary hardware bolts for installation. Each bracket has a 6" leg wall support and 1" front lip and can hold about 75 lbs each. We also include complimentary color match lag bolts for easy installation.

BRACKET SIZING:  Choose the bracket size closest to your exact shelf depth (example: a 7.25" wide wood shelf will use a 7.25" bracket). We offer several sizes including those that work with standard lumber from the hardware store as well as custom boards. 

CLEAR COATED STEEL: raw steel coated with a clear protective coating that lets natural metal variations shine through
POWDER COATED STEEL: professionally powder coated creating a smooth, matte finish to prevent rust and scratches  (available in black or brass)

QUANTITY OF BRACKETS: For strong shelves, we suggest following these guidelines to order the correct number of brackets:

0”-36” = 2 Brackets
37”-68” = 3 Brackets
69”-100”= 4 Brackets
101”-132”=5 Brackets
133”-164”=6 Brackets

NOTE: Standard Lumber from hardware store measures less than nominal size:

2 x 4" = 1.5" x 3.5"
2 x 6" = 1.5" x 5.5"
2 x 8" = 1.5" x 7.25"
2 x 10" = 1.5" x 9.25"
2 x 12" = 1.5" x 11.25"

See what our customers have to say about our brackets:

"Super fast shipping, and arrived in perfect condition. They look beautiful on the wall with the included bolt screws. I'll be back for more."

"Very quick shipping, nice brackets. Happy that mounting hardware was included."

"I’m so glad we found this shop. We had a beautiful Doug Fir shelf from Portland Salvage Works and were looking for the brackets. Seth helped answer a couple of my questions, then shipped us the perfect ones! They look just as we’d hoped. Seth even followed through with some tips and extra screws that helped the brackets hold up perfectly on my kitchen wall. We’ll definitely be back here whenever we have a need for new brackets and shelving projects!"

10 inch lipped shelf bracket

Very nice product, delivered quickly. Excellent consistency between brackets. A very good value. I have ordered these twice before and keep coming back, so that says a lot in itself.

The brackets were just the look needed to set off the shelves and give the kitchen that finished look.
