When shopping for steel mantel brackets, we recommend getting something that's built to last. We always prioritize quality, so each mantel bracket is proudly made in the USA of hand-welded steel.

The following sizes are currently available: 5x10, 6x10, 7x12, 9x12, 12x16, and 15x24. Each of these brackets is 4" in width, making it extra sturdy for a mantel.

FAQs About Mantel Brackets
What is the purpose of a mantelpiece?
A mantelpiece is made to be placed above a fireplace. It frames the opening of the fireplace and décor can be placed on top! We recommend placing it a minimum of 12 inches above the fireplace.
What color options do you have?
Natural Steel, Textured Black, Mist Bronze, Gold Rubbed Bronze, Sun Gold, and Roman Gold!
Do you need brackets to hang a mantel?
Mantels can be hung with other hardware - however, supporting it with steel mantel brackets makes it extra sturdy and can add a design element to your mantel. These are heavy-duty so they're made to support the large piece! However, if you decide to get a floating mantel, you will need a different type of bracket.
What's the difference between a mantel and a shelf?
A mantel is made to be placed above a fireplace. A shelf can be placed around the walls of the home, but mantels can also be used as thick shelves if you want! You can find our steel shelf brackets here.
How to attach a fireplace mantel?
We have mounting instructions so you can do the installation yourself. Please follow the instructions for our Steel Shelf Brackets and Steel Mantel Brackets. Don't forget the drill!
Does a mantle have to be over a fireplace?
Nope! You can use it as a large shelf and put décor on top!
Do you offer a warranty?
For our steel mantel brackets, we offer a one year limited warranty. You can read more about it on our warranty page.
