Hi, can anyone please advise on the best wall fixings to use for hanging kitchen cabinets? The wall is plaster / plasterboard / breeze block.

Thanks for your help.

Cabinet wall fixing plates are good as it allows a number of screws to hold it to the wall see http://www.hafele.co.uk/shop/p/cabinet- ... 68656/9788
Shop around

Hi, thanks for your reply. I am using one of those rails, sorry I should have said in my post. My question is what are the best fixings to use in the breeze block wall.

I thought I'd need something more specialist, thanks.

Some of those grey Fischer ones might be good. 8mm drill and No 10 screws. A bit more "nobbly" for extra grip. :-)

"Normal" brown ones would probably be fine though

After reading the reviews on Screwfix I decided to go with the Fischer ones. They are more expensive than normal rawlplugs but they are worth every extra penny as every fixing was trouble free. Thanks for suggesting these, I won't be using normal rawlplugs again...
