Bridge Cappings & Supports - Channel Tunnel Rail Link, UK
Bridge Cappings and Supports
Ancon fabricated stainless steel bridge cappings and all associated support brackets for bridges running across the Channel Tunnel Rail Link.
Each capping was supplied in a perforated pattern and had a special polished finish to its exposed face. Technical advice was provided by Ancon on the suitability of the specified surface finish, the design of the cappings and the selection of specialist anti-tamper fixings.
The fabrication of decorative bridge cappings demands the use of a durable material with an aesthetic surface finish. Stainless steel was specified for its maintenance-free life and resistance to unsightly staining.
Ancon is a specialist fabricator and has a wealth of experience in working with a range of types and grades of stainless steel.
Ancon will further expand its wide product range with new product launches at the UK’s largest event for specifiers in the built environment, Ecobuild 2017.
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.
