In the case of masonry, we recommend filling the drill holes with injection mortar beforehand and then inserting the dowel and anchor. Level everything and use a long level and plumb line to align.
There are multiple possibilities. We recommend the fischer Thermax 16 dowels.

This metal sheet can be filled with bitumen sealing compound on the wall side - depending on the unevenness of the subsoil.
