I am replacing a wash basin, the way its plumbed there is no space for pedestal, there is a tiled boxing for hot cold and waste pipes. The current basin is as Armitage 2 tap hole 50cm and and is fixed with the standard wall plug screw and nut plus Armitage bracket just like the one in photo which I think it is specific for the current basin.
Off the shelf wall hung basins are too small designed for space saver cloakrooms. I need 50cm width normal basin to hung on a brick wall. Are there standard wall fixing bracket for basins? Or no such thing!

Most modern basins have two large holes at the back to accept these bolts....

Can you still get those metal bracket things that fit one under each side of the basin, and also provide somewhere to hang the towel?

Yes it is brick wall and its tiled. Are the raw plug basin kit strong enough?
They are just under 15kg in weight.

I've hung a lot of basins on those bolts never had an issue, you can always put some no nails on the back of the basin before mounting it. Long as your not planning to change it again anytime soon!!

Thank you all for replies.
I will be using wash basin raw plug fixing set as said here plus basin mounting bracket as in the photo for safety.
Cheers

Just got my basin parts but the wall fixing kit, shall I go for 10mm or 8mm fixing kit? I am thinking 10mm is stronger.
Thanks
