If you have concerns, including, but not limited to: wall type, attachment holding strength or instructions; contact BredaBeds to discuss.

Even if your wall backing is not wood studs, you should completely read and understand the whole wall attachment chapter in the booklet. That chapter contains important safely information and steps not covered on this page: eg: leveling the bed cabinet or attaching the nailer cover.
Steel studs: You must NOT install the bed with the provided screws and instead use these: TOGGLER SNAPTOGGLE Anchors, however contact us for further install instructions.
Masonry walls, including concrete, brick & block: For the mounting you will need to acquire masonry screws, Tapcon (blue or white) anchors must be used. The minimum size is 3/16" diameter and long enough to penetrate into the block at least 2", installed within 4" of each end and spaced no more than 10" apart. We recommend these: Tapcon 2-3/4" x 3/16" Concrete Anchors although they can be found from other distributors. Although if you have concerns or a special situation, such as old brick, contact BredaBeds to discuss.
Lath and plaster: Lath and plaster walls still have studs, although they are harder to find. You will still use the screws provided and follow the booklet instructions, but you may need to cut away a section of plaster to locate the exact location of the studs.
