To complement the Tension System range, Ancon designs and manufactures Compression Systems.
These systems use the same fork connectors and locking nuts as the Tension System but use high strength tubes instead of bars. They are available in both carbon and stainless steels in a variety of sizes and finishes. To enable Ancon to design a compression system the following information is required:
- Pin to pin dimension
- Applied system load
- Material and surface finish required
For more information please contact Ancon.
Ancon Compression Systems are CE marked to the harmonised European Standard EN 1090-1, Execution of Steel Structures and Aluminium Structures: Requirements for Conformity Assessment of Structural Components.
Ancon will be exhibiting at the UK’s largest builders’ merchant show, Jewson Live, 2016 at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham on 15th December.
Ancon’s latest animated video evaluates the limitations of traditional re-bend continuity systems, including the dangers associated with them, and presents a safer, easier, quicker solution - the KSN Anchor System.
