Dot and Dab Plasterboard Wall but What Picture Hanging Fixings?

Postby Daved » Mon Feb 26, 2018 12:37 pm

Just had a new bedroom extension done. Internal walls are Dot and Dab on 12.5mm plasterboard on to modern block wall.
Will standard picture pins into the plasterboard suffice for pictures weighing up to about 0.4kg?
If I want to hang something heavier, and the hanging position is on the dab of glue (located by tapping wall), could I drill in, use a rawl plug and screw ?
Any help greatly accepted. Thanks, Dave.
