wall plugs in to wood? or just plain old wood screws?


Postby prbaxter » Thu Apr 10, 2008 3:07 pm

Easy one for you...

I have a couple of things i want to fix on to my stud wall, and the studs are in exactly the right places for attachment.

So my question is, should i just use good quality wood screws for the fixing, or should i drill holes and use wall plugs like a brick wall.

Needs to be load bearing too so i dont want the fixings just popping off. The studs in the wall are very very sturdy and solid so they wont move.

TURBOGOLDS OR ULTRA TURBO SCREWS ARE EXCELLENT AND AVAILABLE FROM SCREWFIX.

SELF COUNTERSINKING FOR A FLUSH FINISH EVEN IN MDF AND LAMINATE BOARDS.

DOUBLE HARDENED, ZINC PLATED, RIFLED SHANK FOR EASIER DRIVING AND REDUCED SPLITTING OF WOOD.
THESE SCREWS CAN BE USED CLOSER TO THE EDGE.

FULLY THREADED UNDER 80MM IN LENGTH.
