Orbry Plastic Spanker Expansion Fixing Dowels (or Orbry Spanker Fixing Dowels) are used to securely fix Orbry Boards to solid walls. Orbry Spanker Fixing Dowels are ideal for use as insulation fixings when dry lining buildings to provide insulation and when fixing Orbry Boards to solid walls prior to tiling to ensure they are solidly attached. Available in 60mm, 90mm, 110mm and 130mm lengths, you can be sure to find a fixing dowel for the thickness of board that you're using. Also known as cob plugs, you can purchase the dowels on Tile Fix Direct in single units with discounts applying for quantities of 200+ and 1000+.
Orbry recommends that a minimum of 40mm of the cob plug is embedded into the wall to ensure secure fixing and that boards are a minimum of 10mm thick. Thus 60mm Orbry Spanker Fixing Dowels are suitable for 10-20mm boards, 90mm fixing dowels for 10mm-50mm boards, 110mm dowels for 30mm-70mm boards and 130mm spanker dowels are suitable for use on 50mm-90mm boards. Orbry Spanker Fixing Dowels can be used to fix Orbry Boards to solid walls via mechanical fixing or dot and dab fixing.
Orbry 130mm Spanker Dowels are ideal as insulation fixings when using 50mm Orbry boards as insulation (or for using as insulation fixings with other brands of insulation boards). When using 50mm Orbry boards to dry line a building, or to provide insulation to specific rooms in a building, 130mm Orbry Spanker Dowels are recommended for use as insulation fixings to secure the boards.
Suitable for fixing to uneven walls.
