Furniture can be fixed directly using expansion bolts or concrete screws to ensure stability.

PETOMG includes a wall anchor kit for solid wall and drywall in the package with every cat wall shelf, making it less of a worry for you.

Wooden wall:

The load-bearing capacity of wood walls is somewhere between that of drywall and solid brick walls.
Screws can be used directly into the wood during installation, but care must be taken not to damage the wall structure.
