    Hi All,

    I am looking for advise on hanging 1200x600 K2 rad on a dot and dab wall.

    Radiator weighs a lot before you have water in it!

    Behind the plasterboard is a 25mm gap as I took the room back to brick dealing with damp issue, while the room was like that I decided to run the pipework behind it so it was hidden.

    I have used brown plugs and knocked them into the brick and used longer screws for the rest of the house as it was rendered then plastered which are totally solid, just unsure about this room as it's dot and dab.

    Thanks.

    With a 1200x600mm type 22(K2) then it should be fine to use the same, I'd be use M5 screws, just don't overtighten as you'll end up pulling the board in if it doesn't have any dot n dab behind where the brackets will be.

    Thanks for the advise.

    I have thought about knocking some 15mm copper stubs into the plasterboard to support the brackets to avoid them getting pulled into the plasterboard.

    Cut the plasterboard out where the brackets sit and use battens screwed direct to the wall, then hang the brackets on the battens, if your careful there will be no making good.
