Fixed Floating Aluminum Shelves
Rakks Takes Floating Shelving to New Heights.
Sleek Design with Impressive Strength.
Our new low profile aluminum shelf floats like a butterfly and demonstrates impressive strength with it's ability to hold weight of up to 25 pounds per linear foot. Extending 8 1/2" from the wall, it allows for dramatic design applications and also provides plenty of storage space. Stocked in clear anodized aluminum, floating shelves can be ordered in lengths up to 8'-2". Shelves are drilled and counter-sunk at the factory and include mounting hardware. Custom anodized and powder-coated finishes are available. Custom mounting-hole locations can be specified to line up with wall studs and blocking. This customization option allows precise and secure placement of the shelves along any wall.
NOTE: Rakks Floating Aluminum shelves MUST be installed into studs or blocking; Wall anchors CAN NOT be used.
Specifying and Installing Floating Aluminum Shelves
Rakks Floating Shelves come with pre-drilled and counter-sunk mounting holes. Holes are drilled at 16" centers. #10 x 2" Philips flat-head screws are included. Shelves can be ordered in lengths up to 98". Alignment pins can be used to join multiple shelf sections end-to-end.
