RS PRO Zinc Alloy Plasterboard Fixing

Zinc alloy plasterboard fixings from our own trusted and highly reliable own brand RS PRO are an essential fixing used when attaching materials to plasterboard. The durable zinc alloy design ensures that the fixing will remain sturdy whilst allowing screws to be inserted, securing the required material. Plasterboard walls are more delicate, therefore the correct fixing is essential. These zinc alloy fixings are an excellent all in one self-drilling anchor for fastening light to medium loads to plasterboard.

Features and benefits

• Perfect for securing light to medium loads to plasterboard walls
• Highly durable zinc alloy material
• Easy to use

Common applications

Plasterboard fixings are used in a variety of applications such as offices, at home, schools, hospitals, construction and much more. Due to the durable design, they can be used almost anywhere that requires a secure fastening for material with a light to heavy load to be attached to plasterboard.

What is a plasterboard fixing?

A plasterboard fixing is a fastener commonly used to attach materials to walls made of plasterboard and ceiling panels. The durable design acts as a plug for a screw to be inserted, preventing the plasterboard from crumbling and cracking.

How to fit a plasterboard fixing?

When applying to plasterboard, simply screw in the fixing using a normal screwdriver or power screwdriver. Whilst turning, the fixing will drill a hole into the plasterboard whilst threading itself to create a secure attachment. Once fully drilled, a separate screw can then be used to attach the material to the plasterboard and fixing.

What types of plasterboard fixings are there?

There is a wide range of fixings and wall plugs available that are suited for use with plasterboard, depending on what it is you're fixing. Some of the most common are:

• Steel self-drilling wall plug
• Steel hollow wall anchor
• Nylon plug
• Plastic cavity plug
• Rawlplug fastener
• Zinc alloy

Can I screw straight into plasterboard?

Ordinary wallplugs are not suitable for use with plasterboard as they expand once you screw into them, which will create holes and cause the plasterboard to crumble due to its softer properties. Therefore it is essential that you use the correct fixing such as self-drill zinc alloy or nylon plasterboard fixings.
