TYPES

Fixed Brackets

 This type of bracket will have one arm that is longer than the other arm. The long arm is attached to the wall, unless the instruction that came with it states otherwise. The width of the shelf for these types of brackets should be about 25 millimeters more than the length of the bracket's horizontal arm. Overhangs that are large can cause them to be overloaded, which can cause the brackets to break and fall. The shelves should be secured to fixed brackets with screws.

They can come in several colors such as silver, white, black, brown and red. The load capacity is often found on the package.

 Medium to Heavy Load Brackets

The radiator shelf option comes in a size of 125 millimeters or 150 millimeters. The finishes include galvanized or silver finish and cadmium plated.
