kitchen cabinets on plaster walls, TOGGLE?


Hello all,
Can someone please help me, installing a kitchen set into plaster walls, made of (in this layer from paint to brick) plaster, mesh, 1-2 inch air space, then block, then brick. There are no wooden slates. Any way, what would you suggest I install these wall cabnets with...

Toggle bolts? what size? ect....

I'm guessing the plasters at least 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick, plus wood on back of cabinets...

Any help would be great, Thanks

if i'm reading your post right, you have block 2-3 inches into the wall.

if so, i would suggest tapcon's, concrete screws, as the most secure way to hang these.



usually a package of them comes with a masonry bit for a cordless drill as well. assuming you have 2-3 inches to the block, and 1 inch or so of cabinet, you would need 5-6inch screw.


toggle bolts would probably work as well since there is mesh, but i'd be concerned that they might not be able to unfold in that 1-2 inch hollow space. is there absolutely nothing (as in wood studs) in the hollow space?

No sorry, my wall starts with plaster, then mesh, about a 2-3 inch air space, (with spratic studs) then block.

Since plaster can be done several ways I listed the way it's layered from what you would see to the block which is hidden, behind.

I don't think those would hold to the plaster. That's why I ask about toggles and what size to use with 35 inch tall wall cabn.

I'm not sure it toggles would work with plaster, never tried.

A safe option would be to figure out where your cabinets will be fastened, cutting out some of the plaster and putting in backing..

Are you sure you can't hit studs where your cabinets are going? The plaster has to be supported by something...
