Safe to drill through metal behind plasterboard walls

by samg » Thu Jul 02, 2020 1:14 pm

I've drilled a hole to secure some furniture to an external wall. I've gone through the plasterboard but behind it metal. Am I safe/able to drill through this?

Thanks

Hi same
Probably not, you have probably found metal sheathing over electrical cables.
