Drilling and hanging on an acrylic splashback

Hi all,

I have an Acrylic splashback (not glass) which i want to drill into and fix a hanging rail to. The problem i have is that the splashback is fixed onto a plasterboard wall. I've been using the big plaster board wall plugs which have worked well.

Once i drill through the splashback, what type of plug should i use to help strengthen the join as i won't be able to screw the above type in? I dont want to drill the hole so big as to fit a wall anchor in? Any ideas? Thanks!!!

Also, drilling into an acrylic splashback. Sharp mutipurpose bit at a slow speed with water to cool?

To me, a splashblock is what you put under a downspout. What is a splashblock to you?
