    I posted my new display shelving in another thread and decided to do a write up in case anyone else would like to use this shelving system I randomly found on amazon.

    Tools needed
    - Screwdrivers / Screwdriver Bits
    - Electric Drill
    - Masking Tape
    - Pencil
    - Drill Bits (I'll have to check the sizes when I get home)
    - Stud Finder
    - 4' Spirit Level
    - Measuring Tape

    Price
    - 2x - 48" ISS Shelving Kit - Designer Standards - $36.62 ea = $73.24
    - 2x - 14"x36" Glass Shelving (2 pack) - $40.02 ea = $80.04
    - 1x - 14"x48" Glass Shelving (5 pack) - $69.21 ea = $69.21

    Dimensions

    Both the Simple and Designer standards stick off of the wall about a 1/2" (See full dimensions below). So with 14" shelving, the distance each shelf will protrude from the surface of your wall is 14.5". If you are planning to do an "L" shape with your shelves like I did you will be to make sure to account for this extra 1/2".

    Installation

    - First measure the area and plan out where you want your shelves to go and what size glass/wood/etc. shelving you will have. This guide will only cover my specific application, but it should be applicable to most applications. Remember that what ever shelf depth you choose, add 1/2" to any depth measurement to account for the Standards mounted to the wall.

    -The manufacture recommends a 24" to 30" spacing between shelf supports. If you decide to use tempered glass like I have, there is a handy tool that gives you an idea of the weight the glass can support at a given size/support spacing. For my application I did 24" spacing on the 3' shelves and 30" spacing on the 48" shelves.

    14" x 36" x 3/16" Tempered Glass Shelves at a support spacing of 2 feet can support a load of appx. 140 lbs.

    14" x 48" x 3/16" Tempered Glass Shelves at a support spacing of 30" can support a load of appx. 65 lbs. (rough guess based on the 3 foot calculation of this website)

    - After planning lay a piece of masking tape horizontal across the wall in the area you are planning on mounting the shelves. Using a stud finder, mark out each edge of the studs in this area on the tape. After laying out the studs, measure out where your standards will go on the wall. If they fall with in a stud, you can use the included #6 mounting screws that come in the shelving kit from amazon. If they fall between the studs, you will need to use either sheet rock anchors with a corresponding #6 (countersunk) screw, or #6 (1/8" was the closest I could find) toggle bolts. I prefer toggle bolts for applications where actual weight will be applied as they provide a more secure connection but they are kind of a pain.

    - Once you know how you are mounting your standards to the wall, use tape or a sharpie to mark a "TOP" side for all your standards. Unfortunately they seem to be slightly different from end to end with hole placement, so if you try to put it up backwards after drilling your holes, you are going to have a bad time.

    TO BE CONTINUED... (Will updated this later tonight hopefully)
