Gypsum board is one of the most popular materials in construction for the installation of ceilings, walls and partitions.

But plasterboard walls have a drawback – it is impossible to hang a large piece of furniture on them, for example, a large shelf. The method for fixing to the wall for drywall is not suitable. Pressed gypsum, which is the basis of drywall, is too loose material. In such cases, professionals use a drywall dowel.

But which one to choose? Which dowels are better? Depends on how much you want to load it and what is the width of the metal profile on which the drywall is mounted.


The smallest dowel for drywall is a butterfly. Its dimensions are 8 mm X 28 mm. Accordingly, the price is low. First you need to work with a drill – drill a hole in the drywall, then insert a dowel into it, and then screw in the screw.

Butterfly dowel, size 10mm X 50mm is more popular. Its spacer parts are larger, and inside there are two more additional clamping plates that increase the strength of the fastening. When installing a larger butterfly, it is also necessary to work with a drill and make a hole in the drywall. And only after that mount the structure.

The width of the metal drywall profile does not matter, since when installing in a free place behind the drywall, there is no need /
