TW /Buildex hold the patent for this product and have managed to retain 100% of the market as no other anchor of its type has been developed to date.

Through special negotiations only Ramset has private labelling rights of the WallMate giving us an edge in the market place with
this product.

The WallMate self drilling plasterboard anchor has traditionally been available in the Australian market in a zinc material for use in plasterboard, thin wall-panelling and ceiling boards. It is ideal for hanging things such as paintings, plant brackets etc.

The WallMate has a Phillips recess head, the tapered body is threaded to a self drilling point.

The WallMate has a "snap-away" point which allows the use of any length 8 gauge screw /hook which will give a minimum of 20mm thread embedment in the anchor.
The WallMate will hold up to 10kg in plasterboard.

WallMate can also be used in other cavity wall materials, for example, chipboard by pre-drilling a 6.5mm diameter pilot hole before installing.

INSTALLATION

The installation of both the Zinc and Nylon WallMate remains the same. The differences are that the Zinc WallMate product takes an 8 gauge screw and the Nylon WallMate takes a 6-7 gauge screw. Zinc Wall-Mate has a “snap-away” point and the nylon WallMate has a “push-away” point.

  1. Place WallMate on the end of a Philips head screwdriver and lightly pierce the plasterboard face paper.
  2. Using firm pressure, screw WallMate into the plasterboard until head is tight against the face paper.
  3. Choose a 6-7 gauge screw or hook (zinc = 8 gauge) suitable for the particular application then attach the item to be fixed by driving the screw or hook into the WallMate. The “push away” point on WallMate allows for the use of length screws.
