    Default Direct fix furring channels to block walls.

    Gday all,

    Any suggestions on what would be the best fixings to use to fix direct clips to hollow block walls for furring channels to be clipped in?

    Cheers

    Use a betta fix clip. https://www.google.com.au/search?q=b...7d0vh5sObPM%3A

    Drill 6.5mm holes and use a nylon anchor. Intex Drywall Systems - Fasteners Construction

    Would this leave sufficient clearance behind the Furring channels for an electrician to run their wires?

    Thanks again Rod
