3 Floating Clothing Rails With A Top Shelf
Industrial strength clothing rails were always a requirement in the case of clothing retail, due to large volumes of clothes being stored or displayed at the one time. Having a heavy duty steel clothing rail in the home has since started to become just as pressing of a need.
Adding a shelf to the rail can really enhance its appearance, while also providing another small storage solution. Luckily Kee Klamp fittings are very versatile and there are a number of ways to attach your shelf.
1. Custom Retail Clothing Rail
The first option has proven to be very popular and has generated loads of interest thus far. I used this image as the intro to our clothing rail kits page, so although not available as a kit at the time, I found myself talking to many customers about it.
Like the other 2 rails I have also included below, the 'floating' effect is probably what makes it so eye-catching. This effect is made possible by the strength of the fittings, but it also should be noted that the 61-6 Round Flanges need to be get a secure connection to the wall.
**4 screw holes are provided on the 61-6 Flange to suit countersunk flathead screws.
2. Square Steel Frame
The above option features an alternative method of fixing the timber shelf. Whereas our first project utilised a flange to hold the shelf in place, this one is fixed by letting the shelf lie on top of the tubing on each side. The M50-6 male Single Swivel Socket can be used to fix the shelf in place, by either bolting through it or by using a screw and washer.
This clothing rail and shelf is fixed to the wall in 4 places, with 2x Flanges on either side providing ample strength, matching the already industrial strength of the fittings and tube.
3. The Clothing Rail/Shelf Combo
This last project is very similar to option 2, using a box shaped frame to combine the shelf and rail. Here, the timber shelf is cut neatly between the steel tubes on either side, giving the timber a floating effect of its own.
Another notable difference with this option is the inclusion of the 76-6 Hooks to hang clothes or bags directly off, eliminating the need for coat hangers. This is just another nice feature which can be used to demonstrate further that a Kee Klamp clothing rail is a very unique option.
