hey no sweat a light powered hammerdrill,but has the potential to create a bigger problem just move the clams up or down you are probably drilling into what they call a lentil which is a steel plate running the span of the room try heavy duty steal bits high rpm drill oh that lentil can be 3/8" thick!!! Good luck
