    Hi there,
    Does anyone know what the best fixings (wall plugs/screws) are to hang kitchen wall units to a dot n dab wall ?
    Plasterboard is 9.5mm onto concrete block !! Thanks for any advice..

    Personally, I'd go for 2 1/2" or 3" no8 screws and brown plugs, or perhaps consider one of the cabinet hanging rails fixed with the same screws (but less screws obviously)...

    drill through the plasterboard and plug your screws into the wall.

    kitchen cabinets are heavy

    I really like Cabinet Hanging Rail as you can put the cabs up and down and move them about at will.

    How much space is there between the plasterboard and the wall behind? If less than about 10mm, I'd be inclined to squirt some no-nails into your predrilled holes to bridge the gap.
