Hi all

I'm trying to put up an Ikea Ekby Alex shelf onto what appears to be a paramount partition wall.

I tried using self drill plasterboard fixings but as soon as a bit of weight was put on the shelf it ripped out of the wall.
Is there anything I can use to fix the shelf to the wall ? Are gripits any good?

Also with there being no studs to secure it to is there a risk of the weight of the shelf pulling the plasterboard down?

Thanks for any advice.

Basically there's nothing inside a Paramount wall which will allow you to hang anything other than a picture! You may have some success with umbrella fixings or toggle fixings, but it's really a case of try it and see because the plasterboard skins can be very thin.
