    I’m in the process of fitting out a large walk in cupboard, into which I later hope to get a viessman 111 storage combi fitted.

    can someone please let me know exactly what sort of fixings are used to attach it to the wall?

    I have a bare brick wall just now, but am planning to build a false wall 70 in front of it. I’m hoping it’s sufficient for the 111 to fix to the studs of this false wall if the framework is suitable sized.

    thanks,
    Ian

    If I were installing a 60kg plus boiler I'd want to know what I'm fixing to...so I suggest you leave the structure exposed for the installer to decide on suitable fixings.
