I need to fit some shelves in my garage but the walls are made of soft breeze blocks. I think they may be the airated type. When I drill into them, they are very soft and not like most other heavy duty breezeblocks or red bricks ( I do not need to use the hammer function on the drill or even masonry drill bits). What is the best way of screwing shelvesto this type of brick. I don't want to use normal rawl plugs and screws incase the shelves fall down onto my car.
Does anybody know what the best type of fixings to use are?
Just a bit of an update to this post - we have just produced a new project page on how to build a work bench using the Simpson Strong Tie work bench kit. Although this project page is geared towards a work bench, the work bench kit itself can be used to build a very sturdy shelving unit, ideal for this situation, check it out: http://www.diydoctor.org.uk/projects/ho ... helves.htm
