PLASTERBOARD – NYLON/ METAL CAVITY ANCHORS
What is a plasterboard: A plasterboard, also known as drywall, is a building material. It consists of a sheet of plaster covered with heavy paper on both sides; it is used to line the inner walls of houses. Drywall construction became popular as a time and labour saving alternative to traditional lath and plaster.
However, fixing objects on drywall is a little bit of a challenge. There is generally a gap behind the drywall and these are therefore known as cavity fixings.
A very popular fixing for cavities, this is easy to use.
Expandet Plaster Plug Cavity Fixing Anchor is very effective for most light solutions in both 1 and 2 layer plasterboard or other materials such as chipboards, gypsum fibre boards and other walls with cavities.
Suitable for both single and double layers
Wings of the dowel prevent rotation in the drilled hole.
Use with standard wood screw
Can be used in: Drywall, Hollow Masonry. Concrete, Perforated Brick / Block.
Installation – This is inserted through a pre-drilled hole after squashing it flat. When a screw is inserted it goes through the hole in the back of the fixing and as you screw it, it pulls the back up to squeeze the fitting against the back of the plasterboard. Any object can be screwed to the wall now.
Caution – This fitting is strong but, if used on their own, heavy items can tend to “tilt” the actual fixing in its hole and while they will not fall off, can become a little loose after a while.
