Fixings for Steel Frames
Ancon Steelgrip (UK Patent No. 2410307)
Ancon Steelgrip simplifies the fixing of masonry support systems to hollow steel sections, or other applications where access is only available from one side. It is a high performance fixing, available in one size (M12), and is quick to install.
Stainless steel set screws, nuts and washers are available in a range of diameters and lengths in grade A2(1.4301) and A4(1.4401). Set screws can be shrink-wrapped and supplied complete with nylon washer to prevent bi-metallic corrosion when fixing to steel.
These screws feature a shaped drill tip of hardened steel that allows installation without pre-drilling. High thread screws accommodate insulation between a surface-fixed channel and the steel frame. Drive sockets are available.

Following recent fire tests at BRE Global, Ancon is pleased to confirm that its innovative basalt-fibre, low thermal conductivity wall ties, Teplo-BF and Teplo-L, offer 120 minute fire resistance, making them suitable for buildings of any height.
After a string of Awards successes for the Teplo range, the new Teplo-BF low thermal conductivity wall tie has been shortlisted in the ‘Best Innovation in Insulation” category of the 2016 Build It Awards.
