Buyers guide to TSGB Telescop screw gun brackets from armafix

Do you use specialist bracket hardware for mounting on stud walls? If you don’t, now may be the time to consider how telescopic screw gun box brackets (TSGBs), often referred to as rapid sliding wall brackets (RSWBs), could make a big difference to your installation times. From electrical to plumbing and HVAC, these mounting brackets have a range of applications.

Here’s our guide to choosing and buying RSWBs.

What are RSWBs?

RSWBs, or Rapid Sliding Wall Brackets, are extendable brackets designed to help with the fixing of electrical boxes, conduit, pipes, trunking and cabling within stud walls.

These galvanised steel brackets contain notches and markings to aid the precise mounting between the studs and pilot holes to allow easy attachment with just a screwdriver. You can attach boxes easily with self-tapping screws or attach cables and conduit with a TPC clamp.

Key features of RSWBs:

  • Quicker box and conduit mounting
  • Accurate spacing and control of depth
  • Only a screwdriver needed


Who should consider using RSWBs?

If there’s a requirement to mount boxes or fittings within a stud wall, RSWBs are an essential addition to your kit.

These brackets are a real-time and effort saving solution for a variety of applications. They’re a great option for electricians looking for a quick and simple way to mount and support electrical boxes between wall studs. Plumbers and HVAC installers can also use RSWBs to mount pipework in wall studs.

These versatile bits of bracket hardware will quickly become a crucial part of the first fix process.

Why use the Walraven® RSWB?

So you’ve decided to purchase brackets to help move installation along quicker; why should you choose the Walraven RSWB?

This product is fully adjustable to allow for non-standard stud spacing where necessary and depending on the spacing between the studs can mount multiple 38mm or 55mm boxes on the face and inside the stud.

These brackets benefit from a unique enhanced design with stamped markings, which enables convenient identification and bending. For you, this means faster and more precise box and conduit mounting. The pre-drilled holes make box attachment simple, requiring only a standard screwdriver, and the interlocking tab also prevents accidental disassembly, giving you peace of mind.
