The Floating Mantel Support Rod by Federal Brace is designed to support heavy, wall-mounted mantel beams. The base plate and tube diameter are extra large to ensure the highest carrying capacity possible by a bracket of this format.
The cold-rolled steel construction will give you peace of mind that the mantel beam will be supported confidently for years. Suitable for solid wood, MDF box, and even stainless steel mantel beams, the Floating Mantel Support Rod is versatile for any mantel mounting application.
With proper wall stud installation, these mantel rods are rated to support 200 pounds of load per two brackets. This gives you the ability to choose the mantel material you'd like and have no visible support brackets!
