This system is available as a kit comprising a length of 36/8 Channel 2400mm long, ten safety-ended SP36 flat wall ties and ten plugs / screws. It has a design resistance of 1.6kN per metre.
Unlike other wall starters, the ties can be used with debonding sleeves to accommodate longitudinal movement at the joint and the system can also be supplied with other Ancon wall ties with a _ _36 reference, e.g. DP36 or YP36 (dowelled) for use with stonework.

Staifix Cavity Starter Tie
The tie simplifies the building of an inner leaf of blockwork within an existing structure. It is ideal for barn conversions and can be used in line with NHBC standards.
|180mm, 200mm, 230mm to suit cavities from 50mm - 120mm.|
Reveal Support Plate
The Ancon Reveal Support Plate is designed to support the first few bricks of a full brick window reveal during construction. The plate will bond into the bed joint of the outer leaf providing a stable bearing for the reveal brick.
The long leg of the plate should be built into the bed joint of the external leaf with the arrow pointing inwards. To ensure stability, the outer leaf should be built at least one brick high on top of the plate prior to the reveal brick being placed.
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.
