It’s easy to give your bathroom a facelift with new fixtures. Faye reckons it’s
like pampering the room that pampers you! Whether you’re installing a mirror or
a new toilet-roll holder, it’s important to select the right fastener so your
new fittings stay up!
Many homes have framed (or hollow) walls, and the studs (the vertical timber or
metal parts of the frame) never seem to be where you want to fasten things. This
is where hollow-wall anchors are important.
For heavy fixtures, like towel rails or mirrors, use Toggle Mates. These
self-drilling fasteners have a big “footprint” that spreads the load over a
large area of the wall sheeting.
For lighter items, such as a toothbrush holder, use Wall Mates. These clever
fasteners simply screw into the plasterboard or fibrous cement sheeting. Then
screw your fixture on with a screw provided.
For other lightweight items you can use Ram Nuts or Hollow Wall Anchors. They’re
also easy to use, but will require drilling. Ram Nuts are great for fixing
through tiles, as the rubber fitting won’t chip or damage the tile.
