    Default Installing shower shelving

    Hello,

    I am looking at installing two corner glass shower shelves. The shower walls are glossy single piece plastic purchased at bunnings.

    Both shelves have a brass block to be screwed onto each shower wall, being a corner shelf. The blocks need to be screwed in about 12cm from the wall where there is no stud. (the stud only comes out about 3cm from the corner).

    My question is, how should I screw these to the wall? I probably dont want any movement and need this to be water tight. What should I do? Use standard wall toggle screw with some silicon?

    Cheers,

    Ed

    My shower shelves are solid glass and just siliconned on. - I would test it with one, and see if you can remove it.....

    Hi Micmac,

    The shower walls are aqua check with 3mm glossy plastic (bunnings one piece shower walls) glued on. I don't want to rely on the bond between the plastic and plaster by just using silicon.

    Thanks though.

    Talk to a glazier if the silicone adhesives will work. You would need to support the shelf for a day while the adhesive cures.

    Or you could try a hollow wall anchor and silicone.

    Thanks Handyjack. I'll give a glazier a call.

    I need to talk to one anyway to have a mirror cut for a bathroom wall and the kitchen splash back.
