Keeping this in view, what size brackets for 300mm shelf?
Wooden brackets Choose from brackets that can be used on shelves from 150mm to 300mm, or ones that can be used on shelves from 250mm to 450mm. Brackets are reversible, so they can be used in 2 different positions and have a maximum load of 40kg.
Subsequently, question is, how much can a shelf overhang a bracket? If your studs are spaced 24 inches apart, plan to attach a standard to each stud. Shelves should overhang the side brackets by no more than 6 inches.
Also Know, how wide can shelves be without support?
Bookshelf width is typically no more than 12 inches. If the space is limited, the shelf can be reduced to 9 inches. Single bookcase units with two sides, top and bottom should be no wider than 36 inches without a center support.
Can shelf brackets be used upside down?
The top-most screw holding the bracket in would be supporting the most weight. If the bracket was upside down, all the weight would be going straight down. The corner of the bracket would be a fulcrum point and the angled piece would then be pulling all the weight out from the wall.
