Buyer's Guide: Best Anchors For Plaster Walls

Factors To Consider When Buying An Anchor For Plaster Walls

Whether you are buying or building a house, the anchor for your walls is what makes a wall stable. It holds the plaster or sheet rock on the wall together by creating a mechanical connection between two parts. There are different types of anchors for plaster walls. The type depends on several factors. Some of these factors to consider when buying an anchor are:

Amount of load: The load distribution is one of the important factors to consider when buying anchors for plaster walls. Wall anchors should be of sufficient size to support the weight of the plaster or sheet rock. Moreover, the size should correspond to the diameter of the wall. Thus, anchors for a wall which is four feet in diameter should have anchors of four feet in length.

Damp condition: The conditions under which the anchor is used determine how strong it will be. If there is no water, the anchor will not be as strong. Also, if the wall has no moisture, the anchor will deteriorate quickly. It may snap or break under the stress. In addition, the anchor will become weaker as it is continually subject to dampness.

Type of anchor: There are mainly two types of anchors used for plastering. They are rivets and screws. Each of these has its own advantages and disadvantages. Rivets are widely used because they have more strength than screws. However, they are difficult to handle and move around.

Size of the anchor: The size of the anchor is related to the weight of the wall. A bigger anchor is needed for heavier materials. Also, it is used to carry more weight. So, it is usually used for carrying heavy loads.

Installation: The anchor is installed with a tap. If the anchor is installed properly, there will be no damage. It is often tapped on both sides and one end is attached to the house and the other end to the ground. However, if the anchor has not been installed correctly, it will be very damaging. If it is installed too tightly, there may be tears in the wall.

Types of anchors: There are various types of anchors. Some of them are screw-mounted, plates and nails. They can also be placed inside the wall or outside it. They can be used to hold a door open or closed.

How are they used: The right anchor is used for the wall by balancing it against the supporting surface. For this, you have to make sure the weight is evenly distributed. Also, you should know the type of anchor that is suitable for your house. In case of a heavy material, such as plaster, heavy duty anchors are used. In case of a light material, such as wood, smaller anchors are used.

The best place to install an anchor for a plaster wall is in the centermost area. This is the most stable position. The anchor should be strong enough to hold the weight of the wall. When this is done, the wall becomes stronger. You can install both the anchors for the wall and the supporting surface at the same time. However, if one fails, you just have to replace it with the other. However, if both fail, you should repair the damaged anchor first.

When selecting an anchor, you should consider the design and texture of your house. For example, the size and number of windows are crucial. Also, the anchor should be compatible with your anchor line. This is important because you will be pulling and tugging the anchor on the surface you are working on.

You should choose a good quality anchor. Anchors are often made of galvanized steel or aluminum. Steel is more durable and it is also easier to repair. Aluminum, on the other hand, is cheaper and light.
