Fischer Plastic Wall Plugs Red 4-5mm Pack of 300
Worth the Extra
Not the cheapest, but he best plugs I've used, so worth the extra.
A couple of notes:
The screw lead in is good, but you might find you want to add 5mm or so to your usual screw length.
Needs 6.5mm hole into solid materials, otherwise 5.5 - 6 mm when going into looser materials.

As far as value for money, these plugs are difficult to beat. They work in all substrates and grip wonderfully.

They just work
These little babies make your life easier.
Drill a 6mm hole through your sheet material and brickwork in one go, plug it, tap it home with the screw, tighten and you're done.
By using the red plugs you know your screw head is larger than the hole so you can speed through the job.
None of this drill a hole in sheet, mark brickwork, remove sheet, drill in brick, plug brick, put sheet back, try and locate hole, screw sheet to wall.... Yeah it's a phaf.
Better to drill, plug, hammer, screw - job done!
