How to Fix
Decide where to fix the wall, ensuring to check for substrates, pipes and electrical cables. Measure and mark out where you need to screw.
Take a standard 5mm 10 number wood screw, and screw directly into your marked areas on the wall with a screwdriver.
Hang your fixture on the screw or brackets. Step back, and admire your handiwork.
Habito uses patent (s) pending technology to provide you with inbuilt fixing performance in a plasterboard.
On a single layer Habito wall, 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.
Example: If a TV weighs 30kg with its bracket and the bracket accepts four fixings, you should use four screws, even though this provides 120kg safe working load.
No. We recommend that a standard single thread No.10, 5mm wood screw to be used. Fixings with cross threads for chipboard will reduce fixing performance. You also need to ensure the wood screw does not have a threadless shank. The length of the screw used should be sufficient to pass through the fixture being mounted and through the board. Be aware of the substrate the board is fixed to and always check for pipes and electrical cables prior to fixing.
A variety of different load types are possible , so it is vital to assess the suitability for a project.
No, Habito is recommended in dry areas only.
