Notes

1.      The diameter of holes drilled in the blocks should be such that the plugs fit tightly prior to the screws being driven.

2.      The size and length of a fixing should be suitable for the block thickness.

3.      Generally, fixings should be spaced from each other (and from the free edge of a block when this is applicable) at a distance not less than the depth of penetration of the fixings into the block, but this should be confirmed with the fixing manufacturer.
