Now stocked in 5000+ UK stores nationwide, with distribution agreements in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the USA, Gripit has established itself as the trusted trade solution for working with plasterboard. Quick and easy to install, a single blue Gripit fixing holds up to 113kg safely, ideal for all hanging jobs – from curtain rails, shelves and kitchen units, to TV’s, radiators, boilers and bathroom suites.
Many fixings on the market rely on modifying or strengthening walls, while others need timber studs or brickwork anchor points, which limits where they can be positioned. Gripit Fixings can be fitted straight into plasterboard (including dot & dab, double thickness and insulated board) with no need for specialist tools or compromises, saving you time, effort, materials and wastage. Once in place, the Gripit’s universal collar automatically adjusts to the thickness of the plasterboard and its unique backing wings unfold inside the cavity space to create a vice-like grip and ensure a secure anchor.
Gripit’s range of plasterboard Fixings are 100% British with manufacture and distribution taking place our of their Wiltshire Head Office. Completely reusable and including a 25-year guarantee demonstrates confidence in the strength and longevity of these fixings and should be considered as a long term solution that replaces disposable, single use alternatives.
