    Customer Questions & Answers
    By Alex from Rochester, NY on January 6, 2016
    Does this Empire 72" Profile wooden mantel shelf with standard trim come with a mounting bracket?
    By Chris C. on January 7, 2016

    This model does come with a wall cleat to secure the mantel to the wall for installation.

    By Tracy from Salinas, CA on October 5, 2015
    I am interested in this Empire 72" Profile Wooden Mantle Shelf with standard trim, but am wondering if you have a similar item that is deeper, for example an 8" depth.
    If not, can one be custom made?
    By Brennan W. on October 6, 2015

    Based on your request, I would suggest the Pearl Mantels 490 Lindon Unfinished Fireplace Mantel Shelf, which will have a 10" top depth and 8" bottom depth.

    By Carlos from Oakland, CA on October 27, 2016
    Your dimension for this mantel states 72 inches; is that measuring from the top or bottom? Thank you.
    By Brennan W. on October 28, 2016

    This is 72" wide at the top. The bottom width is 68".

    By Janet from Phila, PA on August 24, 2012
    I'm looking for a 72-inch shelf to hang above a closet, not as a mantel. Can this product be used as a shelf?
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on August 24, 2012

    Per the manufacturer, this mantel shelf is not strong enough to be loaded with books or treated as a storage shelf.

    By Gary Greenbaum from Silver Spring, Maryland on November 13, 2016
    How much does the Empire 72' mantel shelf weigh? #MS-72-UH

    By Scott from Santee ca. on June 17, 2012
    How wide and what is the length on the bottom?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on June 18, 2012

    This product is approximately 4" in total depth and tapers to approximately 68" at the bottom of the shelf.

    By Andreia from NJ on March 13, 2016
    My fireplace is 69 1/2 inches wide on the bottom part. Would this mantel work for me?
    By Will M. on March 14, 2016

    Please keep in mind that the 72" mantel shelf tapers down to 68" at the bottom. While this would work, it may not be the most aesthetically pleasing installation. My recommendation would be to consider a 72" mantel with no taper, like the Pearl Mantels 496 Lexington Wooden Fireplace Mantel Shelf or Pearl Mantels 412 Shenandoah Fireplace Mantel Shelf.

    By peter from ny on November 21, 2011
    What is the lookout width and depth?
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on November 22, 2011

    Empire does not provide those exact underside dimensions, but you are looking at approximately 68" lookout width and 3-4" lookout depth.

    By Heather Clements from Eastview, KY on December 7, 2011
    Is the unfinished hardwood stain grade?
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on December 7, 2011

    Yes, this unfinished hardwood is indeed stain grade. Empire also makes primed mantel shelves which are the paint grade, which we also have available.

    By Aaron from Renton, WA on November 7, 2015
    I am interested in this EMpire 72" Profile wooden mantel shelf with standard trim. The top shelf length is 72 inches. What is the bottom board length?
    By eFireplaceStore on November 9, 2015

    This shelf offers a total taper of 2 inches on either side, giving a bottom width of 68 inches on this version.

    By Roman from New York on January 1, 2017
    My fireplace mantel (brick) 62" L by 8 5/8" wide. This one is 6 5/8". Is there a 2 " filler?
    By Will M. on January 2, 2017

    Please note that 6 5/8" is actually the top shelf depth and the depth at the base of the shelf is only 4". A mantel shelf like the Pearl Mantels Savannah 48 Inch Fireplace Mantel Shelf - 420-48 or Pearl Mantels Winchester 48 Inch Fireplace Mantel Shelf - 426-48 chosen in a 72" length would appear to be more appropriate.

    By Nancy from Greenbrae, CA on November 8, 2014
    I have a corner fireplace. Can I order the 6 foot and the 3 foot long pieces of trim and have my installer cut them to make the angle where they meet?
    By eFireplaceStore on November 10, 2014

    You can indeed. A finish carpenter or experienced handyman should be able to bevel the shelf ends and connect them together for a finished appearance.
