Details

These Forgefix Tap-In Plasterboard Fixings are a specially designed steel fixing for plasterboard. They have a zinc yellow passivated finish for increased corrosion resistance.

The fixings have a specially designed tip which simply pierces the plasterboard skin when tapped in. The fixings are quick and easy to install, making them ideal for repeat fixing installations. Alternative screws can be used if required, for different fixtures. Screw insertion activates the fixings' unique wing action that grips the plasterboard.

Supplied with pozidriv 4.0x30mm countersunk head screws.

Applications:
Suitable for use in most types of hollow walls and plasterboard.
Popular fixing for lighter weight fixtures and fittings.

I ordered this item for mosaic work. I can cut a piece the size of my stepping stones, and srick my mosaic pieces diectly on to the mesh. The whole piece can then be stuck on to the item to be decorated in one go. This means I can work inside on my desk whatever the weather, and without dragging heavy stone items in to the house.

Needed this for our kitchen renovation and the design is simple enough to not look like an 'eyesore', especially with the thin frame and only two screw holes. \n\nNot yet fitted flooring, but top appears suitable to accommodate most common flooring types.

Quite tricky to fit
03.05.2018 | 21:54

17.03.2018 | 08:42

These are rugged safety boots, but they are lighter than steel toecaps and very, very comfortable. So much so that I use the old pair for walking the dogs in the fields at home. Unbeatable.

Seems fine for a plastic manhole cover but I can't say more as not yet fitted.
28.07.2015 | 07:46

quality of the product was as descibed
27.07.2015 | 18:55

Wanted this as lightweight replacement for an old manhole cover that had gone rusty under flower pots. Needed to be able to lift it easily as we have no surface water drainage and have nowhere else to dispose of buckets of dirty water etc. Does what it says on the tin and it's inexpensive. Frame easily fitted to inspection chamber with self-tapping screws provided.
19.07.2015 | 08:13

Rompex was delivered as Jointex Easy was out of stock. \nSo far so good, I would rather have had the Jointex, because it has got better reviews.\nCant really comment on the jointex
07.07.2015 | 17:40

I ordered this for the top of an indoor barbeque/fire ontop of a low roof and wanted something a bit more special than a straight pot. Really happy with the look of it and cant wait for it to be put up, just what i wanted.

15.06.2015 | 09:29

Plan to cover over loose cracked plaster before re-skimming on an entire wall where the existing plaster has cracked. Have not used product as yet. If it achieves the required result will use every time faced with this problem.
15.06.2015 | 09:29

Normal use for taping joints on plaster board before skimming, mainly used on ceiling over-boards.
12.05.2015 | 09:06

Chimney looks solid, well made, can't wait to get it on the house

Fitted perfectly into my kitchen floor, manhole covers stops all smells and has a lovely level finish. Great product at a great price. Couldn't get it cheaper anywhere else.
07.04.2015 | 17:15

Product not on site
13.02.2015 | 12:27

Item wasn't on their site but they sourced it for us.
09.01.2015 | 14:11

Used in a barn conversion for under floor heating pipes.\nGood value for money, would recommend.
07.12.2014 | 15:48

I believe I said it all in the previous box. Its a great product you need to furnish more detail i.e. frame depths thickness etc. and types available. There is a market for these, people like me, who are too old to lift the pavoir covers and fed up with the look of the rusty old galvanised covers. Would I am sure replace existing covers with these as I am doing.
01.12.2014 | 11:21

Seems fine, uniform and well made.
01.12.2014 | 07:28

Used to enclose a manhole chamber within a building. Good seals and easy to screed & finish. Well manufactured product.
01.11.2014 | 07:49

I ordered this after much research of a suitable product for my son's patio. I have average d-i-y abilities (female. 50's) and found the product very easy to use; clean; non-staining and producing a pleasing finish. I was so impressed I ordered more and plan to rake out the old joints of my own patio and replace with rompox. As it has only been down a week I cannot vouch for it's long-term service, which is why I have given 4 stars instead of 5, but hope it is as good as other reviews suggest.
