Explanation:
That's what we'd call them in the US, I think.

Hohlsteindübel
• überlange Dübel - für alle Hohlkammersteine wie Hochlochziegel, Kalksandlochsteine sowie Porenbeton und anderen Mauerarten bei höchster Auszugssicherheit
• dreichfach hintereinander angeordnete Dübelsperren
- hervorragende Überdrehsicherheit
• langer stabiler Dübelhals
- bei den Typen B 8 H 100 und B 8 H 120 dient der lange Dübelhals zusätzlich als Aussteifung und Schallschutz bei der Befestigung von Fensterrahmen und Türzargen, insbesondere in Verbindung mit Distanzschrauben

If you need to hang a bracket or something else on a hollow concrete block wall, you should consider using a metal sleeve anchor. This anchor consists of a threaded shaft which is surrounded by a full length expanding sleeve. The shaft has an expansion cone which forces the outer sleeve to mushroom out as a nut at the other end of the shaft is tightened. Once again, you must match the hole that you drill to the size of the anchor. These anchors often have similar strengths as the expansion anchors.

Choose a hollow-wall anchor such as a molly bolt, toggle bolt or plastic hollow-wall insert for a hollow wall or door.
