Many of us aren’t sure how best to hang a heavy piece of art, a shelf, or a wall cabinet in our home or office. The thought of drilling holes in our walls and wondering what fastener system will support the weight can be concerning. Here’s what you need to know:
- An expansion anchor in a. drywall can support around 10 to 20lbs, but if you have a heavier object, you should use a molly bolt, which can support 50lbs.
- The same applies to anchoring objects into concrete or cement blocks to ensure they maintain the best holding value and avoid deteriorating the cement.
At Fasteners’ Inc, we want to ensure you make the right choice. We even provide an installation guide to help: https://www.fastenersinc.com/wp-content/uploads/S25C-anchor2.pdf
