Ancon HiT (Hammer-in Tie)

The Ancon HiT fixes masonry to concrete, dense blocks (≥7N/mm²), non-perforated brick or hard stone. Use of the HiT can reduce the variety of tie lengths required on site and speed the rate of construction.

Once the plug is installed in the concrete, the Ancon HiT is inserted into a special installation tool, leaving its threaded end exposed. The tool is hammered until it is flush with the concrete, locating the thread in the plug. A neoprene 'O' ring must be installed on the tie to prevent moisture crossing the cavity. Using the same tool and ensuring adequate embedment is achieved in the outer leaf, the tie is bent parallel (85-90°) to the brickwork.

The Ancon HiT meets the requirements of PD 6697 as a Type 2 tie.

Length:
310mm for any cavity width up to 150mm

Ancon ISO-TW Isolation Washer

The ISO-TW is designed for use with Ancon frame cramps referenced _ _ V when fixing to steel frames.

In addition to separating the dissimilar materials it allows cramps to be fixed to steel columns in advance of the masonry. Final adjustments to suit mortar joint levels can be made within the 30mm range of the slot without affecting the integrity of the fixing.

The practice of pre-fixing frame cramps can speed the construction process. Ancon manufactures a range of innovative solutions to tie masonry to steelwork without site drilling.
