Important Information - Please Read

When selecting a wall to mount the shelf on it is important to determine what material the wall is made of as this will effect the wall fixing to be used, we recommend only installing this shelf on to brick or block walls. The fixings supplied are designed for a brick/block wall, and will support the weight of shelf and contents if correctly installed.

 

If you ‘knock’ on the wall and it sounds hollow, this potentially means the wall is made of plasterboard, and requires further investigation.  Special plasterboard fixings can be purchased from hardware stores and not included in this pack.

 

Safety check the proposed shelf site. We recommend the use of a wall metal detector, which will check if the wall contains any electrical cables or water/gas pipes concealed in the wall. This detector can also help locate the wood structure in a plasterboard wall, allowing you to position and mount the shelf to upright wooden stud-work.

Step 1 - Assemble the Brackets

First check you have all the components in the box, if anything is missing or damaged please contact the email above.

 

First step is to slide the hooks on to the hanging rail as shown in diagram Dia1. Hooks are designed to be facing out away from the wall.

 

Next connect hanging rail to the two wall brackets. The rail is attached using bolts (A4). Tighten until brackets and rail are rigid.

 

The metal frame can now be positioned on the proposed wall to ensure you are happy with height and location before drilling any holes.

Step 2 - Positioning & Measuring

Once happy with the position on the wall, mark out the fixing holes on the wall in pencil. 

 

Tip: You can also hold the metal frame on the wall, ensuring its level and simply mark the screw positions through the pre-drill holes in the brackets to give you accurate hole positions.

Step 3 - Levelling And Testing Area

Before drilling holes, check the markings are level with a spirit level. 

 

We  recommend as an added precaution to use a metal
detector on the wall to identify any pipes or cables that might be located at the drill site.

 

Drill holes using an electric drill with hammer action switched on using a  7mm masonry drill bit to a depth the length of the raw plug.  

 

The raw plug should be a tight fit and pressed into the hole. A hammer can be gently used to achieve this.

Step 4 - Attaching the wood shelf

Use the wall mounting screws (A1) to secure the brackets to the wall.

 

Now the wooden shelves can be added. They sit central on the brackets, with a small gap at the back against the wall to allow for any wall imperfections.

 

The wooden shelves are then attached using the small wood screws (A3) screwed from underneath to secure them into position.

Cleaning & Maintenance

Avoid cleaning with abrasive cloths or chemical cleaners. A simple anti-bacterial spray with a damp cloth is suitable.

 

Wooden shelf components are sealed to prevent damage from water droplets, moisture and water splashes. The wooden shelf is    not 100% waterproof, so please avoid submerging the wood in water, or allowing puddles of water to sit on the finished surface.

 

The wooden shelf is not designed for HOT items. The shelf is designed as a storage solution for items at room temperature such as plates, pots, pan, glasses, towel etc.
