Give your shelves the strength they need
Do you want a stylish decor piece or rather a robust storage solution? Once you have found the perfect shelf board to suit your taste and needs, REGALRAUM has a wide range of suitable brackets to hold them on the wall.
You can combine many bracket types with our shelf boards for a perfect match with your interior concept. Metal, wood, elaborate or simple ? you are sure to find the right bracket to match whatever style you want. If you plan to put a lot of items on your shelf boards, we recommend strong anchoring to provide the best support to the boards and walls. If you want to use extra-long shelf boards, it is best to use three or more brackets to prevent the shelf board from sagging or breaking.
If you intend to attach a shelf to a wall, it is also important to check the wall's condition and stability. Here?s a simple test before you start drilling: Knock on the wall. A dull sound means that the wall is most probably firm and solid. If you hear a slight echoing sound, then the wall is a lightweight or hollow construction. These wall types may not be suitable for heavy loads.
It is important to drill your wall anchor holes deep enough for the length of the anchor. A protruding wall anchor is no good and trying to hammer it into the wall with brute force will only damage it. We have provided a list of sample sizes below. If you have a plasterboard or hollow block wall, then you will need to use special expanding or hollow wall anchors, which are available from hardware or DIY stores. You will need different wall anchor types for timber, stone or concrete walls as well. You can use small metal or rubber washers between the wall and the shelf board to compensate for uneven wall surfaces.
