Rawl Plugs for 6kg Mirror in Bathroom

Post by chenks » Tue May 05, 2020 1:43 pm

Hi

i've got a mirror to put up on a bathroom wall.
wall is plasterboard (hollow behind i believe, internal wall).
mirror weighs about 6kg, so is reasonably heavy, and in the orientation will have 2 mount points on each top corner (it's wide and thin).

so looking to know which rawl plugs/screws i need to secure this to the wall.

photo attached of what the mounting brackets look like

Hi chenks
I assume the picture is the fixing bracket on the back of the mirror. If this is so whatever you use you will have to be very accurate with the fixing screw location.
If your wall is a stud wall suggest you use self drive fixings which look a bit like a cork screw. I seem to recall that they are supposed to be able to support 70kg vertical load.
Regards S
