Looking for some simple handy man advice - I'm looking to affix a dart board and wooden cabinet to an outside hebel wall.
All up it weighs about 10kg and there are 2 x hooks / fixing points.
Any suggestions on what type of screws I need?
Welcome to the Workshop community @AaronGuthrie. Thanks for your question, I'd be happy to assist with it.
I'd just like to confirm with you it is Hebel and not Besser block? Hebel is a soft material which expansion bolts are likely to crack. I would advise pre-drilling holes, then securing Zenith 6 x 100 x 14mm Galvanised Eye Bolts into them with Ramset Chemset Masonry Anchoring Adhesive Cartridge. Another cheaper alternative is to glue them in place with Selleys Liquid Nails Landscape, though it is not as strong as the Ramset product.
If they are Besser blocks, then a Ramset 8 x 45mm Dynabolt Eye Bolt will be sufficient.
If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.
Great thanks Mitchell. I can confirm that it is rendered Hebel (CSR) so I'll give the Zenith bolts a go.
Actually, now that I've looked at the Eye Bolts I might need something slightly different as I have 'eyes' on the board, so need more of a hook on the end of the bolt (see pics)
For future visitors to this question on the forum, the Hebel Technical Manual lists many methods for fixing to Hebel walls for different load types:

It sounds like you've had a lot of experience with Hebel blocks. Do you currently have any projects that involve Hebel blocks? I personally found out how different Hebel blocks were by trial and error. I was going to mount a dartboard onto the block and had assumed that an ordinary masonry nail would do the trick. Imagine my surprise when the nail and the head of the hammer disappeared into the Hebel block. It was a very informative day for me as I learned all about Hebel blocks.
If you happen to have any projects on the go, please don't hesitate to share them.
