The floating mantel metal bracket is the perfect solution for creating a sleek, modern, and visually appealing mantel for your fireplace.

This metal bracket backplate is 3/16" thick, 3" tall, and 82" in length, with 7 rods 6" in length and 3/4" in diameter, providing a secure and invisible support system for a floating mantel or shelf with a thickness size of 3 1/2" to 8" and a projecting 8" to 12" and length 84" to 96".

The metal bracket is designed with functionality. Like all floating mantels or shelf brackets, these are best mounted to studs or studs over sheetrock. They are designed to hit every stud that falls behind the bracket with industry-leading screw mounting patterns. When the mantel is mounted correctly using a Floating Mantel Bracket, each affixed stud can support up to 50 pounds. To simplify the process of installing a 82" Floating Mantel Bracket, consider purchasing the optional Drilling & Routing Kit for Mantel Bracket 82".
