Steel Frame Edge Trim
Ancon CombiDeck edge support is supplied with an integral channel section that accepts standard Ancon ‘T’ Head Bolts and has been developed for use with the permanent metal deck shuttering of steel framed structures.
CombiDeck is manufactured in zinc coated mild steel with a stainless steel or galvanised steel channel. Alternatively the complete assembly can be manufactured in stainless steel. The stainless steel channel welded into the edge support will usually be Ancon 30/20, positioned 55mm below the top.
The thickness of the floor slab will determine the capacity of the support system. A 130mm thick slab will limit the height of single skin brickwork to 4 metres. Thicker slabs will permit more masonry to be supported.
Most Ancon support systems can be used with CombiDeck.
Details for specifying and ordering
The CombiDeck edge support is specified as follows:
CombiDeck / channel size / height of edge
e.g. CombiDeck / 30 / 140
This will have a 30/20 channel and will suit a floor with a depth of 140mm.
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.
