What is the best anchor to use to fasten an interior, nonloadbearing wall to the slab?

Ramset fasteners or Masonry screws? O don't think expansion anchors are necessary, but you tell me.

Either way I will have to but/rent/borrow the Ramset or Hammer Drill.

Warrior,

If the slab is an old one shooting with a Ramset might not work because the concrete will just break up. Shooting them in is the best way that I have found. If the Ramset wont work then you can use some PL200 and/or some of those blue concrete screws. For the life of me I can't recall the name of those screws.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

Well, the slab appears to be in good shape. So if going witht he Ramset fasteners, what length do you suggest?

I use a 2" or a 2.5" with Green or Yellow Loads. Yellow being the stronger load.
