Habito uses patented technology to provide you with inbuilt fixing performance in a plasterboard. A no. 10 wood screw will provide a safe working load (SWL) of up to 30kg per screw (safety factor of 2). We recommend that you follow the manufacturer’s guidance as to the number of fixtures required to mount a fixture.
