Closet Hangers & Melamine

We used some melamine for the inside walls of a walk in closet. Now I need to put rod hangers up and am wondering if need to manage the the mounting of these in any special way because we use melamine.
The closet is divided into several sections each will receive a hanging bar about 32 inches in length.
Any suggestions. Other than build some doors this is the last phase of this project.
Thanks.

Coarse thread screws. Get the wooden rod mounts and make sure there are at least three or four holes. Drill more if necessary. Pre- drill with somewhat smaller holes than usual for the screw size and use SPAX screws that have serrations on the lead threads.
What I did for my 100 lb slides on my melamine cabinets which seems to be working out.

Use a drill with a clutch, experiment on any scrap of the melamine as to where to set your clutch at. Battery charge does affect the amount of torque so start with a fully charged battery. There are Hi Lo screws ( two different diameter threads ) check McFeelys for melamine screws.

Do NOT over torque the screws in melamine. I would pre-drill and use a VERY light setting to drive the screws. I might even finish up with a manual screwdriver. Melamine is particle board and does not care for too much pressure.
