Due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, I decided to put a basketball hoop on one of our outside walls, so that me and my son can stretch a bit. The problem is that the wall I plan to put the basketball is built with hollow bricks, (see below).
The thickness of the brick is close to 10cm. Additionnal specs :
the wall is getting its fair share or rain during autumn and winter and its facing the wind, so I want to make sure that no moisture will find its way in.
there may be some dunking (we are on average 100 kg each) involved so I need to make this as robust as possible.
I considered but I find them lacking :
- screw plastic wall plugs
- screw anchors
- Toggle Bolts
- expansion anchors
- hollow wall anchors
In most of the cases my main worry is that because the brick is hollow the won't find enough support. So, I wonder what is the best practice for this type of brick.
I would greatly appreciate any guidance on the matter.
