Technical expertise supports architectural design flair
From simple box-type home construction using Ancon wall ties, lintels and windposts to the build of iconic concrete-core high-rise buildings using couplers, shear connectors and masonry support systems, Ancon products support architectural innovation and design flair in the residential market.
As thermal efficiency requirements become more stringent, Ancon balcony connectors with thermal breaks are an important component of apartment buildings, while thermal and acoustic wall ties help developers meet the latest regulations.
