hi i would like to know if it would be ok to bolt 2/1 to a concrete ceiling and then plasterboard over that and skim finish it would that be strong enough to hold it all up its 2.40/2.20 so its not very big. any other ideas wolud be great. thanks
Hi, shouldn't be a problem, and you don't need to bolt the 2x1 just use
plugs and screws, fixing the timber at 450mm centres. You will need to fix the plasterboard (12.5mm) with 32mm drywall screws.
