Calculating How Much Your Sheppard Bracket Can Hold

Updated: Jul 31, 2023


Sheppard Brackets - Floating Shelf Brackets - How to

Our shelves are made of carbon steel with 3/4" or 1/2" round tubes so they can hold a lot of weight, but just how much depends on how you install it. The weight a bracket can hold depends on two different factors, the first being the backplate of the bracket, and the second being the number of studs that can be hit. cc: Teresa


Backplate Height

Weight Capacity per Stud (**per rod w/ backing)

30 lbs

45 lbs

55 lbs

60 lbs

80 lbs

100+ lbs

**If the bracket is attached to solid backing then the weight rating becomes per rod instead of per stud
