Plasterboard fixing metal GKM

The self-tapping metal fixing for gypsum plasterboard and gypsum fibreboard

The fixing is screwed in the pre-positioned installation into the Gypsum plasterboard and gypsum fibreboards flush to the surface. The sharp, self-tapping thread enables a secure, positive fit fixing. This achieves a high load-bearing capacity. The fischer GKM can hold wood, sheet metal and chipboard screws from 4 to 5 mm thickness as well as different hooks and eye screws. Consequently, it is universally suitable for fixing e.g. lights, electrical installations and fitting accessories securely and quickly.

Product Description

Advantages

  • Due to its material properties, the GKM can be used in gypsum plasterboard and gypsum fibreboard, and can be used with the most wide-ranging screws, hooks and eye screws. This allows for a broad range of applications.

  • The sharp, self-tapping thread enables a secure, positive fit fixing. This achieves a high load-bearing capacity.

  • The cross-drive recess means that a standard screwdriver or bit can be used. No special setting tool is required.

  • The short fixing length means that only a small amount of space is required behind the board. As a result, the GKM can also be used in the case of unknown board thickness and cavity depth.

Assembly Instruction

Functionality

  • The GKM is suitable for pre-positioned installation.

  • The self-tapping metal fixing GKM taps itself into the plasterboard with a positive fit.

  • Flush installation in the board building material. Overtightening the fixing should be avoided. Therefore, the installation torque should be limited when using a battery operated screwdriver.

  • Adapted for wood, self-tapping and chipboard screws of 4.0 to 5.0 mm diameter.

  • Pre-drill with a Ø 8 mm drill bit when using gypsum fibreboard and double-planked gypsum plasterboard.
