The angled Rake Floating Shelves will keep you staring and will undoubtedly result in you asking at least one the following questions……. “What is actually going on here? Why aren’t the objects rolling off? + How are the items actually staying up on the wall?”
With the shelf surround sitting at an angle to the central (horizontal) flat surface, the overall form is still very functional, whilst also providing a very contemporary aesthetic due to the simple counterbalancing and angular form. Additional effects and compositions can be created when these unique shelves are grouped together. There is a left hand and right hand version to further accentuate the group effect.
The Rake floating shelves look great as a pair of horizontal shelves, a vertical stack of three, or as a 2 x 2 grouping of four shelves or a 3 x 3 grouping of six. In fact, the larger the amount of shelves, the more intricate and unique the overall effect can be. You can also have the shelves in line with each other, or stagger them off center, depending on the effect you desire.
The shelves can be fitted individually to masonry walls. On plasterboard (with timber stud work behind), we strongly advise that prior to mounting the rake floating shelves, that a solid (ie: 15-19mm thick) backing board be fixed to the timber stud work. This backing board can be painted the same colour as the wall or a different colour for decorative effect. The provided hardware for the Rake shelves can then be much more easily and securely fitted to this backing board. This technique ensures significantly greater fixing strength which cannot otherwise be achieved via direct connection to the plaster. We advise against fixing to plasterboard (with metal stud work behind).
We are more than happy to talk the installer through the best practice hanging technique.
NB: Pricing represents a “per shelf” price, not a group price. The pricing also includes a raw (unpainted) 18mm thick MDF backing board. Maximum size per backing board is 1M x 1M. We are happy to discuss this with you however based upon your preferred number of shelves, setup and positioning.
A 1M x 1M backing board will hold 2-3 rake shelves in a vertical set up. Of course, multiple backing boards can be grouped together for multiple shelf configurations – as depicted in some of the images here.
