Interesting, but rather pricey

OK, I'm an "old school" chippie, so please don't ask me to do a bodge job - I didn't bring my horse today and in any case you don't seem to have a hitching rail!

Just use raw plugs into the block work and use copper pipe as a washer/spacer the thickness of the cavity.

Good raw plugs and decent screw will grip brick and breeze block if you are using dryline then anchor bolts with a struggle heavy loads

Obviously a pro has ways around fixing to dot and dab walls. But I thought these would be good for the diyer as they are fairly straightforward to use,yes they are a bit pricey but for the diyer it could save a lot of heartache.

I have used Rigifix in the past and they are really good but not cheap-

Available on ebay- http://fave.co/2tfCGWt

Also just a few weeks back I got sent some corefix fixings which look good, but I have not tried them yet.
