The Bullfix universal fixing is a new patented fixing (patent application number PCT/GB2020/052771) that offers a fast, simple and strong solution to fixing heavy items in any type of plasterboard wall – without the need for additional tools or work inside the wall cavity.
Created by builder Mark Howe, company founder and director of Bullfix Ltd, after he became frustrated with the existing options available for fixing heavy items to plasterboard, the new heavy-duty plasterboard fixing offers a higher strength fixing solution suitable for all applications of plasterboard construction, including insulation backed plasterboard, stud walls and ‘dot & dab’.
Fixing heavy items to plasterboard has been a long-term challenge for years, for which there are a variety of solutions available depending how the plasterboard is fixed and with variable degrees of satisfaction. Using his previous engineering background, Mark has developed a super strong fixing for stud walls.
“With building regulations stipulating ever increasing use of insulation, the need to make a strong fixing to insulation backed plasterboard is becoming more and more common. It’s great to have one fixing that can be trusted to be strong enough for the job and is quick to use in any type of plasterboard wall,” comments Mark.
