Radiator on plasterboard
Can a radiator be mounted onto plasterboard? Its a perennial question...
- Toggle PB fixings
- The PB fixings that use a setting tool
- Fit a Noggin
- Screw at least one side to an upright
- Fix the rad to ply to spread the load
- Drill extra holes in the brackets and fix every 2-3"
Opinions as to how much people would hang off a PB point fixing vary greatly. Having had single coathooks on toggles fail I wouldn't do it at all. On the other hand some people have hung fairly large rads on PB, and some of them got away with it.
