Our unique design and fixing system

The Shelfbar® system works through a combination of a unique design and fixing system applied to the best quality engineered materials and manufacturing. All painting is after installation to achieve the best fully fitted finish. Not just for trade professionals, these high performance floating shelves can be successfully installed using everyday DIY skills

How strong are Shelfbar shelves?

We could answer this question in several ways, but we think “can they take my books?” is the load measure most people want to know.

All Shelfbar® designs have been tested on a range of solid wall and plasterboard surfaces and they can easily support as many books as can reasonably be fitted on them. With no bend, no wobble and no sag.

We have put some of our products through some additional extreme testing - Please take a look at the photos of these at How Strong?
