Fixing a mirror to the wall - what size screw?
Hoping folks can offer a bit of advise as I definitely don't want the thing falling off the wall and having 7yrs bad luck
I have a rectangular mirror with 4 pre-drilled corner holes which I would like to put up on a wall but need some advice on the most suitable size / gauge screws to use (the mirror was previously on a studio wall before I bought it)
Mirror Size approx. 50cm x 110cm
Existing holes approx. 5mm diameter
Weight of mirror approx. 8kg
The wall itself appears solid – either brick or most likely clinker block as it’s a solid internal wall between two rooms. Deff not a stud wall though.
I was looking at these screws but unsure on the gauge and length that would be most appropriate and hoping someone with experience could offer some guidancehttps://www.tcfixings.co.uk/main/product/productinfo/1466/8G-x-50mm-Countersunk-Mirror-Screws-BZP-5BA/1
(I do know I need to order bushes too so the mirror doesn't crack)
