Frequently Asked Questions

Why are there only 2 widths? Can I do something wider or narrower or to the size I want?
For wall mount shelves, the maximum we recommend will be 250mm for most types of brackets. It is still possible to have 300mm planks for these shelves, but we would recommend customers to purchase the brackets with guarantee from the seller that it would work. We're then able to pre-drill for customers to get it installed by their carpenters.
Do I have to apply oil on them regularly for maintenance?
For high traffic areas, regular maintenance is recommended to be between 4-6 months. If only for display, once in a few years will be fine.
Why can't I choose anything more than 1m length?
The ex-stock shelves are available in 600mm, 800mm and 1000mm length. For anything more than 1000mm, it is available by customization.
However, we recommend shelves only up to 1500m if they are not secured on both ends. WhatsApp us at 84823346 to customize any dimensions that's not available on the website!
Where do I purchase the oil required for maintenance?
You can purchase it from our online store.
