What Do I Need to Install Glass Shelves?
Post time £º2018/7/6

When your install glass shelves you need:

  1. Shelves
  2. Hardware
  3. Level
  4. Drill
  5. Stud finder
  6. Pencil
  7. Tape measure
  8. Blue painter¡¯s tape
  9. Glass Shelf Installation

Once you¡¯ve found the perfect location for your glass shelves, ask yourself how much weight they will hold. Perhaps the type of shelf kit you purchased will answer this for you. Look at the hardware and the wall anchors the shelf came with. If it came with drywall anchors, the shelf will easily hold a few books or interior decorations if you install it on drywall. But if you have plans for potted plants, many books or a heavy rock collection display, you must use anchors that go into the wall studs. In general, a quarter-inch pane of glass that is 24 inches long and 6 inches wide can support 15 pounds with wall stud anchors at each end. Use thicker glass or more anchors to support more weight. Overloading a glass shelf is very dangerous; if you¡¯re worried, consult an expert to prevent disaster.
Glass Shelves Placement
Next, you must decide on the height and placement of the shelves. Consider the height of items you want to display and how easily you want to access them. If you¡¯re displaying fragile decorations, place the shelf out of reach of young ones. Or if there will be a potted plant that needs to be watered frequently, put the shelf at a convenient height. You can use a strip of blue painter¡¯s tape on the wall to get an idea of an appropriate height. Apply a strip of tape (cut to the length of the shelf) on the wall, and take a few steps back or ask for a second opinion before you start drilling into the walls. Make sure the shelf won¡¯t interfere with opening doors or cabinets once installed.
