Plaster Board Fixings

There are a bewildering number of plaster board fixings available in the market. To make the most appropriate choice if fixing, a number of factors must be considered:

  • How thick is the plasterboard?
  • How deep is the cavity behind the plasterboard?
  • What is the fixing for? How heavy is the load and how thick is the fixture?
  • Will the fixing be removed at a later date?
  • Will the fixture be removed at a later date?

Generally, the choice of plaster board fixings depends on the weight of the load. For lightweight applications such as for mirrors and towel rails, it may be possible for to fix straight into the plaster board. The most common fixings for this purpose are self-drilling plasterboard fixings. They’re very easy to install as no pre-drilling is required. In addition, they don’t take up much cavity space.

For medium duty uses, the most recommended fixings are metal cavity fixings. They place the load behind the plasterboard and they spread the stresses over a wider area of the board. These metal cavity fixings are usually either toggle or umbrella types.

For heavy duty loads, the best options include self-drilling screws, timber studs, and extended nylon plugs (“frame fixings”).
