If failure of the fixing puts life and limb in danger or great economic damage is to be expected, approved wall plugs must be used.
The installation instructions (setting and anchoring depth, axial and edge distances, drilling diameter, drilling depth, installation torque, attachment thickness, through hole in the attachment as well as other product-specific installation specifications) must be observed! These can be found on the packaging, in the TOX catalogue and in the enclosed assembly instructions.
The specified holding values are recommendations including a safety factor and apply when using the largest possible screw diameter, thread form similar to DIN 7998. When using smaller screws or screws with a different thread, the holding value may be reduced. For articles with enclosed screws, please note the deviating values on the packaging.
The recommended loads only apply for installation in the building material, not for installation in joints and/or plaster. The building material itself must be load-bearing. The holding value specifications have been tested with representative specimens of the respective building materials and apply to predominantly static loads.
For fixings, the holding value specifications of the building material manufacturer must always be observed, regardless of the wall plug holding force. For non-load-bearing partition walls, for example, the maximum console loads are regulated in the standards DIN 4103-2 and DIN 18183-1.
Approved wall plugs must be installed in accordance with the European Technical Assessment by trained personnel under the supervision of the site manager. See also: "Instructions for the installation of wall plug anchorages" of the DIBt, the German Institute for Building Technology. Approved wall plugs are only approved as a unit/system. The exchange or modification of components is not permitted.
