    • How structural are the shelving units? Can the shelves hold my books? 
      The Strut Shelving System’s design is inherently quite structural. A single bracket can hold in excess of 200 pounds (although we recommend a maximum of 50 lbs per bracket), when it's mounted to studs in your wall. This makes it perfectly suitable for use as a hanging bookshelf.

      Which room is the Strut Shelving intended for?
      The Strut Shelving System is suitable for both commercial and residential interiors. Its perfect as a bookcase & media center in a living room, open storage in the kitchen, a decorative shelf in the bathroom, or a retail display. You can hang a single, shelf or mount multiple shelving units to the wall to create a modular wall unit unique to your home.

      How do the shelves get mounted to the wall?
      Mounting the metal brackets to the wall is relatively simple. The brackets attach with provided screws. Included screw caps conceal the screws, allowing the brackets to look like they are floating off of the wall. Its recommend that you locate the studs in your wall in order to fasten the brackets directly into the studs. This will provide the maximum level of strength.

      What colors do the shelving brackets come in?
      Currently, the Strut Shelving brackets are available in black, white, green, light blue, red, brass, and copper. Custom finish requests are welcomed.

      How are the brackets made?
      The shelving brackets are made from steel. Thick steel wire is bent into a triangle shape and welded to a sheet-metal back plate. The design is contemporary, industrial, and elegant.

      What types of wooden boards are available?
      Right now we offer the shelving with four different wood finishes- natural hard-maple, natural ash, white(ash painted), and black(ash painted). All shelves are made of hardwood boards that are laminated together for optimal strength. All of the wood is FSC certified and sourced in the USA. If you are interested in ordering a wood variety that is not currently a stock option, please contact us.  

      What is the shelf depth?
      The shelf depth is approximately 10.5".

      What sizes do the shelves come in?
      We currently offer two stock sizes. The short size (52”) comes with two metal brackets and the long size (84”) comes with three shelving brackets. We also routinely do custom lengths. Please feel free to contact us with any custom inquires.
