    I need to fix a towel rad to a paramount partition wall.
    35mm cavity with three sheets of 12.5mm PB on the side that the rad will be going on.
    the rad is approx 1250x450, 14kg empty, so wont be massively heavy when full

    Normally i've used hollow wall anchors ( the umbrella type) on single thickness PB but in this instance the wall thickness is too much to allow for the wall anchors to be used.

    has anyone got any suggestions for alternative fittings?
    I was thinking of using the metal/alu self screw in plugs but not really a fan of those.
