How to Mount a TV on Plasterboard The Easy Way
You need to be confident that the hardware you use to fix a TV to the wall will keep it firmly secured in the one spot for many years. Knowing that both your family are safe and the unit itself is secure on the wall and not at risk of ending up on the floor is vital.
With the internal walls of many homes now commonly lined with plasterboard, homeowners need to be confident that when they mount their TVs to their living room walls, the integrity of the wall structure won’t be compromised by the weight of the appliance. GripIt Heavy Duty Plasterboard Fixings are designed with this concern in mind.
Most readily available wall fixings on the market simply aren’t designed to hold heavy loads over 20kgs, without requiring a wall to be modified and strengthened. Others rely on timber studs or brickwork behind the plasterboard to anchor heavy items, and this can limit where they can be positioned.
GripIt Plasterboard Fixings solves the problem of mounting anything heavy on a plasterboard wall with no need for specialist tools, complicated modifications or compromises that can often have drawbacks.
A single GripIt fixing holds up to 113kg, more than any other on the market, eliminating the worry and restrictions about weight. What’s more, GripIt fixings can be installed directly onto the plasterboard, avoiding any damage or impact to the surface.
