Would a bedroom wall/concrete hold a 30kg punching bag?

Found 10th Feb 2012
I would like to know if a 30kg punching being fitted to a concrete wall in a spare bedroom will be enough to keep it stable when stationary and swinging about when hitting it?

Any help would be nice thanks

It's the force when hitting it you have to worry about. Can it be bolted to a joist in the ceiling?

It's a wall bracket, a pretty good one at that to be honest. Just wondering if It would bring the whole wall down which Iam sure it wouldn't. Hopefully

buildings are built from one of the following method

brick built
concrete blocks with render skim exterior or plaster skim interior
timber frame with render skim exterior or plaster skim interior

answer is no. i do not think the wall will be strong enough to hold the punch bag. it would need some sort of special brackets to distribute the weight if it is going to stay upright.

As long as the load is distributed across the wall then its fine. I always over engineer everything as i want it to last a lifetime. I woudl use anchor screws to fix it to the wall and torque it up. then punch and kick like a man posessed.

so whats the point of the product if it cant even be hung on concrete blocks? I would assume the bracket is large so can spread the load.

OP, concrete blocks will be fine and you'll never knock that wall down. The bracket will give way before the entire wall!

If your walls can't hold 30KG's, then I would leave the property immediately.

its not so much the walls but whether the fixings stay in, best to use the metal plugs/bolts and use the correct size masonary bit
