Hello all, I need to attach some wall cabinets to a kitchen wall that has a
plaster board section. I was thinking about using those spiral fixings that
fix into the wall with a separate screw that fixes into it. But I was also
thinking about using an adhesive like "no more nails"
Has anybody tried this or can offer the best approach.
In my opinion you need to remove some of the plasterboard, insert some
noggins between the studs where the kitchen wall cabinet brackets need to be
fixed, replace the plaster board then hang the wall cupboards. Fixings into
plasterboard with or without adhesive are not likely to be strong enough to
support wall cupboards and their contents.
Locate the vertical studding and screw a battern say 1"x1 1/2" to them.
This takes the weight of cabinet. A couple of angle brackets on the top
secured to same studding will stop it falling forward
I'd agree with setting some timber into the plasterboard wall secured to the
brick/breezeblock behind. I actually used the 1x1 underneath approach too
(secured with umbrella fixings) but more to help me line everything up
faster and as a temp support to help me hang the cupboards on my own.
Reason I did this is when I moved into the house, things rolled out of the
old kitchen cupboards. There was a half inch gap at the top where the mounts
were in the process of ripping through the plasterboard wall!
