We supply fixings with all of our rails. The fixings should be spaced between 360 and 500 depending on the substrate.
In stud walls (plasterboard) the spacing will be determined by the studs themselves. Studs are usually at either 450mm or 600mm spacings. Where studs are present a pilot hole is sufficient for each fixing.
For masonry walls keep a similar spacing to 450mm where possible, masonry plugs can be supplied free of charge but they will need to be requested at the time of purchase.
Dot & Dab walls
'Dot & Dab' is a method of fixing plasterboard to a masonry wall where the finishing sheet is literally glued to the wall using dots of adhesive. This is a bit of a tricky one so please give us a call but the spacing remains the same. 1300 88 36 45
Do the rails need to be screwed into a stud wall?
