Attaching plywood to concrete block through foam

Posted by macgyvers2000 (My Page) on

I have 1.5" foam board glued against concrete block, but a framework has not yet been erected in front of it. I want to attach a 2'x3' piece of plywood to the wall (it will act as a homerun point-of-contact for all cable aplifiers, phone, and ethernet hub wiring), but I'd like a second opinion on an effective mounting tactic. I was thinking four toggle bolts, one through each corner of the board, foam, and into the block. Everyone's thoughts?

How about glueing it?

or this...

..or, if you're worried about it falling, then get a larger piece and let it reach the (standing on a piece of foam).

Use concrete screws, such as Tapcons.

After thinking about it, I'll probably go with some form of standard anchor bolt. I'll make sure not to hit a seam, but other than that it should be pretty straightforward.
