Advise please for securing wire closet to wall

What screws and anchor are best to use when installing wire closet on bedroom wall. I can't find the beam. I want it to be strong and secure. I also hope for easy tools screws and anchors.

Re: advise please

Hi @gteam,

 

Could you perhaps provide some information or a picture of the wire closet so we know what type of weight it will be supporting? That will assist our members in advising some great solutions.

 

There is a range of Ramset Wallmate products which allow you to easily fix to plasterboard. Each of the products will have their own weight capacities and you should select one that suits your needs.

 

We look forward to some additional information and providing a solution to your installation question.
