The ability of plasterboard to withstand loads is limited. For items over 50 kg (washbasin, kitchen furniture, etc.), it is necessary to provide a reinforcement behind the plate (doubling to achieve) or to arrange the anchor points in the frames (dubbing in place). Hooks are preferably installed with specific rocking dowels.

  • Up to 5 kg: type "X" hooks
  • Up to 50 kg: self-drilling dowels ("queues-de-chochon") or rocker
  • Above 50 kg: reinforcements behind the plate or fixation in the frames. Place supports and / or structural reinforcements beforehand.

Treatment of the passage of a joist

The passage of beams or joists is made by notching the plate at the passage thereof. To get around the obstacle, you have to adapt the ceiling rail. For this, cut the sides of the profile with a sheet metal shear and bend the profile accordingly. It is arranged to arrange the vertical rails so that they do not fall at the level of a joist.
