    Hi,

    I'm fitting a radiator to a plasterboard wall ready for the plumber to pipe up. Having had a quick peek behind the board though theres a large gap between the rear of the plasterboard and the thermalite block (60mm). I have used the Dryline Pro fixing (https://www.drylinepro.com/) for previous radiators that have worked well but none of them have had a gap as big as this. What would people recommend?

    Or cut out bits of board and put noggins in, kinda similar to what I’ve just said in your other thread but bigger battens/noggins fixed to the blockwork if it’s taking the weight of the radiator

    Thanks for the replies, I think I'm going do go down the space-plug route. Total weight of the radiator filled will be 47.3kg. I'm thinking one space plug and hex screw per bracket (4 in total). Does this sound reasonable?
