Can I fix my racks to a plasterboard wall?

Yes. Even though plasterboard may be the ‘weakest’ of all wall materials, it is so common that we have found most of our home installations are likely to be on this type of wall. In all the thousands of installations using our racks across the world, there has never been a single reported case of racks falling off a wall, it just needs a little care with the choice of fixing.

The most common and effective fixing is the spring toggle (or butterfly) anchor, which is designed to spread out into the cavity behind the wall, making a secure support for heavier items. A set of these cavity bolts + some spiral fixings are included in most of our wall-mounted ranges. If you are unsure, you can also check with a local DIY or hardware store to see what they may have.
