When a small shelf box profile on a wall mounted floating shelf is desired, but a more substantial carrying capacity with a secure hold is still required, our Low Profile Floating Shelf provides the answer needed. This floating shelf system comes with an innovative gusseted support bracket that ties the supporting arms together with a cross member rib. The cross rib on this floating shelf bracket improves the overall carrying capacity of the system. The exterior shelf support is made out of heavy gauge .25 inch thick steel and has an overall height that is shorter than other systems on the market. Matched up with our veneer and MDF shelf box, the finished Floating Shelf is both sturdy and low profile for the beautiful appearance desired for home and office. Our Low Profile Floating Shelf System is excellent in installations where finished wall fascia exist.
