Supports – Brackets – Specially mounted or attached
A wall fixture assembly for adhesively mounting an object onto a wall. Though capable of carrying relatively heavy loads, the assembly is readily removable from the wall without impairing the surface thereof. It is constituted by a base sheet and a fixture having a flat foot, the base sheet having an underface coated with a layer of pressure-sensitive adhesive whereby the sheet may be pressed against the wall at a desired site and conformed thereto. The flat foot of the fixture whose area is much smaller than that of the sheet is covered with a layer of high-strength adhesive. In installing the assembly, first the sheet is adhered to the wall and conformed thereto, and then the foot of the fixture is pressed against the sheet at the center zone thereof and firmly adhered thereto. A heavy load thereafter imposed on the fixture will not dislodge it from the wall, in that the base sheet interposed between the fixture and the wall acts as a load distributor therefor. The fixture is further provided with an array of outriggers whose extremities engage the outer face of the base sheet at points displaced from the foot to resist bending moments, further enhancing the load-bearing characteristics of the assembly. To remove the installation, one simply peels the sheet from the wall.
