View Full Version : Hanging a wall cupboard
24th Mar 2012, 06:40 PM
I have recently hung a wall cupboard to a cement renderd wall, the cupboard measures 1500mm long by 880mm high by 300mm deep, made out of veeneer board with 3 glass doors, I put green plugs in with 65mm srews and capped them, 3 in each corner and 3 in the middle, 9 in all I also put max bond cement on the wall before I scewed the cupboard on, my question is, is this suitable as the cupboard was quite heavy.
the cupboard sits approximatly 1500mm of the floor

you would be shocked to see how kitchen installers fit joinery to metal Rondo stud walls up here.

The shear strength of a 50mm countersink chipboard screw is 2000 kg's, they'll rip out of the chipboard long before they snap.

its used in Commercial and Highrise Appartment jobs. Its a stud wall system that goes up pretty quick, faster and easier than timber.
