I'm wanting to mount the long Hemnes shelf on an interior wall.I'm picking up 3-4 studs in the area that it would be, but they are really oddly spaced.
Would it be preferable to buy separate mounting hardware? The specs for the shelf list 99lb capacity, but I'm not sure if that's referring to the structural ability of the shelf or their recommended max weight on a wall? If I'm distributing the weight across 3 studs, I would imagine that they would support a lot more than that. That being said, I am concerned about the construction of the wall - is there any way to check the quality of studs?
If the limit is referring to the shelf itself, are there any suggestions for reinforcing upon assembly?
