I would like to fix a fan light 5 blades 130 cm diam. on a false bottom in BA13. Is it possibble with Molly ankles?

Everything depends on the weight of the device, which must be at least 15 to 20 kg. Fixing by Molly dowels is very resistant, but for such a device, which can also generate unbalance in operation, it seems more reasonable to get into the shell or a beam Other solution, go behind the ceiling (after cutting partial) a chevron of 5 x 7 in which will be screwed the fan. This is the solution used by plasterers to fix radiators or heavy furniture.
