Gothic Arch - Symons Street, Chelsea, UK
Ancon manufactured a special stainless steel Gothic Arch to restrain the natural stone cladding of a prestigious residential development in Chelsea.
The Symons Street Project was an unusual challenge for Haymills Contractors Limited as it involved working with an existing masonry façade as well as New Build. The new courtyard featured an arched window framed by natural stone.
Ancon provided technical advice at an early stage of the project and designed a Gothic Arch to meet the exacting specifications of the stonework. The company’s accuracy in both design and manufacture avoided any difficulties in the installation of the arch on site.
Ancon Lintels are manufactured from stainless steel and do not require any further corrosion protection.
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.
