    What length of plasterboard screw would you suggest to use to attach sheets of 15mm thick plasterboard to a ceiling? Boarding straight onto joists.

    Also, I noticed coarse thread is usually slightly more expensive for the same length.

    Perhaps coarse is better as gives a better grip?

    Thanks.

    if it is a PDF?

    Use the "find function" inside the PDF type in fixing to timber and see what the "find function" pops up with?
