Can anyone help me track down a supplier (preferably local to
Southampton) of a metal hanging rail for kitchen wall cupboards that
will let me support the weight across the studs of a dry lined wall?
My cabinets are the normal B&Q jobbies that hook onto metal wall
plates in the top two corners.
I am not convinced that hollow wall toggle fittings on plasterboard
will hold up my new units when they have been filled with the normal
The kind of thing I had in mind can be seen as the second to last item
on this page:
This has a similar profile to the small fitting plates that come with
the cabinets but has a length of 2 metres odd (more than enough for
the job!). Unfortunately, whilst these guys have this at a good
price, I think 20 quid delivery is a bit steep (and want to do the job
sooner rather than later).
My less preferable alternative is to hack out the plasterboard and fit
a wooden batten in place and fit the wall plates to that.
Thanks for any help or advice,
