Plasterboard & Cavity Anchors & Fixings

Plasterboard cavity anchors are fastening components used to fix items onto plasterboards, ceiling boards and internal walls.


What are plasterboard cavity anchors used for?

Plasterboard cavity anchors are used to safely secure objects to plasterboard surfaces and ceilings, or onto chipboard and hardboard surfaces. Anchors made of metal are used for heavy duty fixings such as radiators, shelving and handrail brackets. For light duty fixings like paintings, noticeboards and light fittings, anchors made of nylon or plastic are suitable.

Most anchors are reusable and can be removed from the wall cavities to be used elsewhere.


Types of plasterboard cavity anchors

Types of plasterboard cavity anchors include:

  • Hollow wall anchors are either open eyed or closed eyed, and can be removed after the anchor is fixed. The anchor legs are collapsible, which strengthens the holding capacity of the anchor.
  • Plugs are used for light duty fixing and can be drilled or hammered into plasterboards with either soft or hard partitions.
  • Spring toggles have clamps or wings and use spring motions to attach objects securely behind the wall material.
