Brick is such a beautiful material that you often do not dare drill holes for example to put a trellis on the house facade, hang a chalkboard in the chassis or attach a door hook to the garage wall.
Finally, however, win the reason and give the cling up a necessary support, break the uniformity of the well-being and ensure that The garage door no longer strikes marks in the cartoons. And if you have just drilled and plugged correctly, you also have every reason to be satisfied with the decision.
It's not harder to drill and fix bricks than other hard-worked materials, but technology differs a lot. Plugging is a must. Although using hardened nails, normal nailing is not suitable.
The method can transmit transverse forces, but hardly any major longitudinal forces, for example, nailed brackets release bricks when tensile forces add.
In comparison with concrete, brick more porous and thus not as strong. This means, among other things, that you can crack a brick if, for example, plugs are too close to one edge.
The brick wall is also easily located near a very heavily busy street, vibration from heavy transport over time allows even plugs to simply shake off.
It is important that you consider extra carefully before beginning to brush in bricks.
It is difficult to make an invisible coating if it would be compulsory.
It is possible to make bricks in bricks with such a tool as a plug drill, but it is both easier and safer to use a low-speed
If the tile is particularly porous you can start with a smoother drill steel and increase the dimension if necessary. Then you do not risk the hole getting too big.
In general, the same types of attachments are used for bricks such as concrete, such as pin screwdrivers and the like - but plugging and simpler plastic plug can also go well, provided that the fittings are not exposed to dehydrating heat.
A very simple and inexpensive way of attaching a nail or hook of clearer dimension in bricks is as follows: Drill a thin hole and stuff it full with wet cotton. Drive the cotton plunger as hard as you can and then hit the nail or hook. When the cotton dries, it extends extensively and provides a good grip.
1. To drill and attach a tile screw, use a soft rubber plug.
2. Nylon plug of this kind fits both whole and hole tiles.
How to drill
1. Select where to drill the plug hole. Never drill so close to the brick that the stone is burst when the plug expands.
2. Always drill the plug hole at right angles to the wall. If you tap a small water pass on the drill, you are sure.
3. It is important that you use a drilling machine with a stroke function. Also set the machine at the lowest speed.
