Question

Anchoring to sheetrock with concrete behind it


My walls have matal studs 18" on center. Anhoring anything heavy to them has been a chore. I've used toggle bolts in the past but I've only got about a half inch of hollow space behind the sheetrock, then the exterior concrete wall. There are no studs nearby.

What can I use to anchor something to the wall with a maximum shear rating of about 75-100 lb per anchor?
