How much can I hang on a magnetic wall?
The amount that can be held will depend on the strength of the magnet (assuming that the plaster has been applied at the minimum 3mm thick). The stronger and better quality the magnet, the more it can support. For further details, please watch our video
If I paint the magnetic wall will it lose its strength?
No. The strength of magnetic plaster means that you can emulsion over it with no loss of magnetic attraction
My magnet sticks but slips down the wall, why is this?
The ability for magnets to stay in place is not only determined by the strength of the magnet, it is also affected by friction. If the magnet is sliding down the wall, there may not be enough friction between it and the wall to hold it in place. Please see our top tips video for ideas on how to overcome this
What is the best way of making a picture frame stick to the wall?
Self-adhesive magnetic tape is the easiest to use
