In a discussion on the Green Building Forum, one of our customers recommends this solution as supplied by us as “a good strong solution”.

He also says “I used resin to embed the threaded part of the fixing… The stone here in my universe is mudstone and very hard but with a good sds drill I can put a hole into it with no problem”
