Angle Surface Bracket turns awkward spaces into storage places
April 12, 2021 | 3:08 pm CDT

The Angle Surface Bracket allows for two standard wood or metal rods to be attached front and back for hanging clothes and adding an overhead 12-in.-wide shelf for extra storage. 

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – WEI Angle Surface Bracket (ASB) offers a solution for transforming sloped ceilings and slanted walls into functional storage. It will have its first public showing at the Closets Expo, June 9-10.

The patented, easy-to-install bracket allows for two standard wood or metal rods to be attached front and back for hanging clothes and adding an overhead 12-in.-wide shelf for extra storage. 

Since ceilings are not all the same, ABS’ bracket features 25 telescoping angle push-button adjustments. The bracket is attached to studs in the wall or rafters in the ceiling. It has been tested to support 125 pounds per bracket and span 32 in. to 48 in.

The company says the brackets are ideal for use in an angled-ceiling closet, a bonus room over a garage, an attic, the space under the stairs, or even a bare wall in a bedroom that lacks closet space.

The Angle Surface Bracket was designed, created and patented by Warren Ignacio.  After working in the construction/home renovation industry for many years, he saw the need for a way to hang clothes and accessories on an angled/sloped ceiling in closets, attics, and under stairs.  

Launch of the Angled Surface Bracket was delayed by the pandemic. The product is so new that it is not yet available through distributors and must be purchased through ASB’s website. The Angle Surface Bracket was selected by the National American Hardware and Paint Association as one of the top retail products for 2020 at the 2020 National Hardware Virtual Show.
