The benefits of using Corefix
Required for most modern houses
Obtaining a secure fixing to a drylined (dot and dab) wall is notoriously difficult. Corefix solves this problem by securing the load to the solid wall behind, and not to the plasterboard.
Huge load rating
Tested to over 250kg (without failure) with a safe working load of 100kg based on 4 x Corefix fixings. Corefix has been independently tested for tensile and sheer strength with its performance verified.
Robust and dependable
With Corefix the load is supported by the solid wall behind, not the plasterboard. Corefix is well-engineered using quality materials and heavy duty components, with the metal parts being plated for corrosion resistance.
Very quick and easy installation with no specialist tools required. All that is needed is a 10mm drill, hammer and screwdriver. The straight-forward fixing system comprise of a patented plug, metal insert and single screw.
Corefix is ideal for
Wall mounted large screen TV’s, wall hung cabinets, shelves, boilers, radiators, sanitaryware and much more! Corefix has been designed for drylined walls, but is also suitable for other wall construction types.
No more bowed plasterboard
Corefix bridges the void between plasterboard and the solid wall behind with STEEL thereby preventing the plasterboard from crushing into the void (as is common with many other types of fixing).
