1) How to calculate the dimension of the bracket?

bra-cl2a-1Classic Bracket
You can leave 1 to 3 inch between the end of the bracket and the shelf edge depending on the dimension of the shelf. The brackets are not exactly the dimension showed, due to the forgings process, even if we ty to make it closer. It’s more or less 1/8″ to 1/4″.

jIndustrial bracket
The dimension of the bracket is referred to the length of the shelf. For example, a bracket of 6″ is made for receive a shelf of 6″.  So, It’s calculated 6″ from the wall to the end of the shelf and I leave a little space of around 1/8″ between the shelf and inside the lip of the bracket.

The longest dimension is the length and the shorter is the height.

2) How strong are the bracket?

IMG_1234All my brackets are very strong. I’m not a scientist but I made a little try with an anvil in my shop as you can see in this photo.

Classic Brackets are made with solid bars 1/4″  x 1″, 1/4″  x 1 1/2″  or 3/8″ x 1 1/2″ for the bracket itself and 3/8″ or 1/2″ for the scrolls. They can take 50 to 100 pounds each. 

Industrial bracket:
These brackets are very strong. they are made with 3/4″ or 1″ solid square. They can take more than 100 pounds each.

Note: It is important to make sure that is strongly attached to the wall with good fasteners. You can also distribute the weight on a largest number of brackets. But, by the way, you have to make sure that is strongly attached to the wall with good fasteners.

3) What is the finish you offer and what the difference?

Finish

Brush and Clear:
this finish is brushed and a clear is applied. This is not uniform as it is the real color and reflection of the iron. 

 Anthracite:
The color is almost the same than Brush and clear. 
Anthracite is uniform and looks very close to the real steel. It is also more resistant to abrasion and corrosion (rust). It is thus preferable in humid places such as the bathroom. 

Black:
That color is Satin black or semi gloss. This is uniform and more dramatic. It could be good if you have already si=ome pieces in the room that are black.

Old Copper:
This is a faux-fini made with paint. It is a bit textured.

Primer and Black:
An anti-oxidation primer is applied underneath a satin black color. Good for outside.
