    Mark out the holes in the brackets & screw 4" #12 screws right into the thermolite block, no rawl plugs or pilot drill. Works a treat.
    I was sceptical when a builder told me about it but it works.
    You need to position the bracket on the wall, hold it & screw the first screw in through the bracket so there is no need to remove the screw to fit the bracket.

    No, we have not put them up yet, as we are still building stocks at our central distribution centre, and have shed loads of Heatline to clear. However, they will be going on the site as soon as we have a full range in stock.

    Some of the branches have them already, but the branches tend to only keep between 70 and 100 faster moving sizes, out of a total of closer to 200 sizes in all.

    Depends on plug our Browns use a 7mm hole or 5.5 for red plugs

    Depends on wall try a 6mm first can always go up to 7mm
