In order to save some material, as long as the shelf and bracket are installed correctly, the bracket is strong enough to be using the 1:2 ratio. Meaning that the brackets can be 1/2 the length of the shelf itself. But we always suggest to use 2 studs at a minimum.
No. 99% of the time, you will not be able to see underneath the shelf and the set screws. If that is still a concern, you can purchase a filler for the holes.
We generally recommend your shelf be at least 2" thick when using the aluminum bracket - for a standard installation, we advise never going thinner than 1 ¾ in thickness for your shelf at the absolute minimum.
This is because the bracket itself is 1 1/2" thick, so you will need at least 1/8" of additional material on the top and bottom of your shelf to house and conceal the bracket. Just remember to leave yourself that 1/4" of shelf thickness when selecting your material.
In general, it's best to leave at least 1/4" at the top and bottom of your shelf, since its far too easy to blow out 1/8" with the smallest movement. See below for a diagram of the recommended shelf thickness.

I ordered this bracket to install a fireplace mantle that was made out of Cypress. The bracket was very sturdy and was what I was looking for.
Used on 4 22" shelves. Straightforward design. Just a lot of routing of the shelf to fit the bracket. Need a template to go with it.
Thanks for the review - I've discussed the template with my team and we are working on making this happen.
The brackets worked great! Took a little bit to machine the first shelf but after that everything went very smoothly. It was a little hard running multiple wires with in the bracket. I loved the way the shelves sit on the wall no adjustments required and the set screws really secure the shelves to the bracket. The customers have been happy knowing the the shelves are rated and I'm confident that they will stay in place. Good job guys👍
I used the Hovr brackets to install 4 2” thick live edge shelves. I was hesitant to spend the extra money because so many options were available elsewhere..but I am so glad I did. These brackets are top notch. Amazing engineering, everything you need for the bracket is available through the website. I will be using Hovr on every shelf I install moving forward.
