 Hi All,

Looking to bring over a set of screws/bolts next time I am over to attached stuff to the outside walls around theh door and wondered if anybody can tell me what the outside walls are made of please?

Ive seen around solid cement blocks, grey hollow blocks filled with concrete or the hollow brown bricks you see around site?

 

Thanks in advance,

Martin

Hi Martin,
The outside walls are solid concrete so you will need your normal Rawl plugs. If your going to put anything up on the inside you will need some plaster toggle fixings for fixing to plaster boards.
Hope this helps

I am in the jardines and sure they are the red hollow bricks, when drilling you don't go far before you are all the way through. We put up the lights plus a thermometer (beside the door) and just used some raw plugs.

Thanks the replies, thinking of putting up a shade above the door so need to make sure it stays up securely.

 Don't use ordinary rawplugs, use the cavity wall variety, but for heavy items I would use metal rawlbolts

Thank MGK,

Thats what I was wondering if there was a solid wall or a cavity in the bricks on the outside walls around the door.

I will bring both, but more for a solid wall.

Regards.

It is certainly not solid. The walls are constructed from the hollow clay type blocks you have seen around.

Thanks

I am assuming that the big blinds over the front doors are held on with the long bolts stuck in with chemical cement pumped into the wall then.

Regards,

Martin

 I was thinking more of rawlbolts, long bolts with an external metal sheathing, as you tighten  the bolt it spreads the outer sheathing giving you a secure anchor
