A shelf that will carry heavy weights requires two important components:
1. A strong shelf:
  The sturdy wooden shelves are supplied with an engineer-designed steel bracket and wall fasteners to ensure the maximum weight carrying ability.
2. Strong wall:
a. Brick or cement block walls: Most walls that are less than 60 years old are strong enough.
b. Timber walls generally work very well. Instead of the supplied plastic wall plugs, we recommend using wood screws with washers (not included in package).
c. Fitting a floating shelf on a drywall can be done with special Fischer toggle or board fixings (not included in package). Unfortunately it is not strong enough to take very heavy weights.
