Bullfix Heavy Duty Plasterboard Fixings will be launching in Screwfix in August 2023

Mark Howe, a builder by trade for 35 years, was fed up with failing plasterboard fixings. He identified a gap in the market for a reliable plasterboard fixing that could be used across all types of plasterboard and started working on a unique design that would provide a strong, reliable solution.

Mark joined forces with Matt Statham in 2020. Matt has a background in product engineering and sourcing materials in the Far East. The Bullfix plasterboard fixing was born. They launched Bullfix on Amazon in 2021, where it has become the No.1 plasterboard fixings brand. It is regularly rated as ‘Amazon Choice’ and has received many 5-star reviews. It is also available on Amazon US, France and Germany.

Since launching on Amazon, the business has received significant investment from Wilko and is now featured online and in-store. It is also featured on B&Q online, and has achieved good success in the DIY space. It is now gaining traction in the heating and plumbing market with installers and heating engineers.

Features and Benefits

  • Bullfix Universal fixings are suitable for dot and dab, stud walls and insulation-backed plasterboard. Only a 7mm cavity is required
  • The fixing screw hole is only lined up properly when the wings are fully deployed, so the fixing can’t be used unless it is properly inserted, making it extremely reliable
  • The fixings will hold up to 116kg, making it perfect for hanging radiators, boilers, TV brackets, shelves, cupboards, heavy pictures or mirrors to plasterboard
  • Bullfix is the only fixing independently tested by FIRA (Furniture Industry Research Association), successfully passing stringent load tests for EN standards).

To meet the needs of our customers, we have extended our product range, which now includes:

  • Bullfix Extra, for when you need extra confidence. It has the same unique design, but the longer wings will support 133kg. A 20mm cavity is required for this product.
  • Heavy duty hooks and safety latch
  • Cabinet brackets – for hanging heavy cabinets to plasterboard
  • Solutions packs – extended range of kits which provide customers with everything they need to hang radiators, TV brackets, pictures/mirrors, cabinets and heavy shelves to plasterboard.

What heating engineers have to say about the product

“Well I’m all for trying new products but so few meet the mark. However, these really do. I was doubtful as my plasterboard is dot and dab with minimal space. Drilled the hole, pushed in the sleeve and tapped the fixing in with a hammer and fitted the radiator bracket. Solid fixing and can see numerous uses for them.”

“Wanted to install a couple of large radiators. Have used other plasterboard fixings previously with limited success so thought would give these a try. I was very impressed. Easy to drill required holes with drill bit provided and simple step-by-step instructions made the job an easy one to complete. Seem very strong. I would definitely use these again for any plasterboard fixing, especially for larger items.”
