Yep. All of the above are more sensible options for high load situations in an existing kitchen than cutting the plasterboard (along with the vapour control layer) to shreds :thumbright:

Although I still maintain that if you must insist on putting high loads in more than one cupboard in a run, you should be supporting it from underneath, as regardless of how well your wall fixing holds you're still relying on (in most cases with pre-manufactured ) 15mm chipboard for structural integrity. Which is obviously actually ~4mm where the dowels are.

I weigh 70kg and I can confirm (having just tested it) that afor mentioned bovis kitchen cabinet (300mm wide on it's own), afixed in said pikey way, can support my weight hung from the top cornice. Go figure, as the yanks say. :B


You are saying your kitchen cabinet(that you say is held up with redi drive spirals) holds your weight?
Aye right then Pinocchio :lol:

Cheeeeseandriiiicccee... Yes. That's exactly what I'm saying. I'd video it but no doubt there'd be some conspiracy theory about that even if I did :roll:
