Fixing Habito is as easy as one, two, three.
What is the fixing capability of Habito?
Habito uses patent (s) pending 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 15kg per screw. 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 15kg with its bracket and the bracket accepts four fixings, you should use four screws, even though this provides 60kg safe working load.
Can I use any type of screw with Habito?
No. We recommend that a standard single thread wood screw is 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.
What is the safe working load for Habito?
We state that Habito has a safe working load of 15kg when used with a no. 10 wood screw. The safe working load is calculated by this fixings failure point divided by a factor of four.
