Does the weight of the shelf itself matter or influence the maximum load capacity?

Normally, no. Properly installed, the bracket can hold so much weight that the weight of the shelf is mostly irrelevant. That said, you may run into load capacity issues when installing non-standard installations like solid concrete, marble or granite shelves with a total depth of more than 8 inches. Not only would we recommend the installation of the male bracket to the wall be performed by a professional, but we advise you may want to opt for the steel bracket in those instances as well.
