    I'd like to hang a gas central heating vertical radiator on a single timber stud behind a thin plasterboard wall. The stud is 38mm wide (actual size) and (presumably, difficult to measure) around 75mm deep. The radiator would weigh around 35kg in total, spread across a number of screws which can vary between four and ten (I have some freedom with that).

    Would that be ok? If yes, what screw size would you recommend?

    Thank you.

    Sounds about right, I have three rads mounted on stud walls NP but don't scrimp on screw quality - there are screws and there are other screws
