Wall Mounted Glass Shelving Achieves Free-floating Aesthetic

Glass shelving creates a compelling setting to display objects in a free-floating, minimalist fashion. Brackets mounted on Rakks Wall Mounted Standards support glass shelving that displays objects in the N.W. Barrett Gallery in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The challenge in this installation was to accommodate the anticipated weight of the handcrafted pottery on the 1/4″ thick glass shelves. The Rakks Brackets and Standards pictured below allow unobstructed views of the art by maintaining a low profile.

“N.W. Barrett Gallery was established in 1985 to show quality handmade crafts. Several hundred artists are represented in various mediums, including fine gems and high karat gold.” – N.W. Barrett Gallery

Rakks Shelf Stiffener Accommodates Wide Spans

The display in the photo below is in Pearl River Mart, located in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood. The display features glass shelves spanning nearly four feet, securely supported by Rakks Brackets with integrated shelf stiffener bars. The advantage of using shelf stiffeners is to provide support under the glass shelves to accommodate longer spans and greater weight capacity. Over a long span, the stiffened glass shelves allow more versatility to display merchandise. They also maximize the visual appeal of the exposed brick wall’s surface.
