Free Hanging Shelf Bracket

    Floating shelves, floating bathroom vanity, floating mantel or hearth, floating desk, floating shower seat/bench, all are supported by the Free Hanging Shelf Bracket. This bracket is the perfect concealed support bracket for supporting a floating bathroom vanity or floating shelf. Your choice of Steel or Solid Aluminum material.

    **Please Note: The recommended bracket for shower benches is our Industrial Free Hanging Shelf Bracket.


    This bracket is made to mount directly to the 2x4 wood studs inside your wall before the sheetrock goes up (If studs are metal, watch the video below before installing the Free Hanging Shelf Bracket) the Free Hanging Shelf Bracket must be mounted into wood studs to support the weight of the shelf, etc. We recommend hitting each of your 2x4 studs for maximum protection.

    How to install the Free Hanging Shelf Bracket to Metal Studs:

    By mounting above, as well as below the horizontal piece, this prevents any type of twisting of the horizontal piece. After the bracket is mounted cover the wall with the finished board of your choice. 


    How to Determine the Size Bracket You Will Need:

    When measuring for length remember the horizontal piece is measured tip to tip. Remember to also include the part of the brace that will be inside of the wall [usually about 3 inches]. For example, if you have a 12-inch wide shelf you would stay 2-4 inches from the outer edge, plus the 3 inches inside the wall. Therefore, 12 inches minus 3 inches (from the outer edge) plus 3 inches (inside the wall) equals a 12-inch Shelf Bracket.


    See our installation guide for the Free Hanging Shelf Bracket for more info before you order.

    quality product, good service

    First time using this product

    Found these brackets online, looked like a good solution for installing a heavy vanity cabinet "floating" above the floor, using no legs. Received 3 brackets quickly and in good condition, was impressed with the materials used and quality of fabrication. After ******** to the framing, we tested the weight-bearing capacity with about 375 lbs load and there was no deflection. Very satisfied with the results and will use this again for future projects.

    Pretty Amazing

    I couldn't be happier with my aluminum brackets for my floating shower bench. Everything worked out great. I set the brackets with a pre-slope for drainage using deck screws and construction adhesive. I then sandwiched the brackets between two sheets of 3/4" plywood + 1/2" spacers (the same thickness as the aluminum brackets) using stainless steel carriage bolts. Once this was constructed I used a liquid waterproofing membrane + membrane fabric strips to waterproof the bench all the way around. After waterproofing I set my tile and the rest is history. There is absolutely no flex in the bench... it's ****** rigid. Thank you for such an awesome product!

    Great product

    I recently bought 4 free hanging shelf brackets to hold a floating bench in my tub to shower conversion. My contractor only needed 3 of them. Returning the extra bracket was very easy and I received a full refund in days. Great product and super Customer Service!

    Free Hanging Bracket

    Shipped promptly and installed easily. It has the stoutness just as it was represented to have.

    Floating shower bench

    Turned out really nice, but I ended up adding two at the front tips because it still moved a little to much for my liking and the tile/grout lines! So I used 4 on back wall and two short ones on the sides to prevent it from rolling

    Super Customer Service, Great Products

    The Original Granite Bracket makes some of the best brackets we've used in our custom architectural millwork business. On top of that, if there are order changes required, they have always been very responsive to our requests. I highly recommend their company.

    Great service

    The product is great as was the service. The shipping was so quick and I accidentally doubled the order…they called right away to see if it was intentional and cancelled the Duplicate order.
