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.
Following recent fire tests at BRE Global, Ancon is pleased to confirm that its innovative basalt-fibre, low thermal conductivity wall ties, Teplo-BF and Teplo-L, offer 120 minute fire resistance, making them suitable for buildings of any height.
After a string of Awards successes for the Teplo range, the new Teplo-BF low thermal conductivity wall tie has been shortlisted in the ‘Best Innovation in Insulation” category of the 2016 Build It Awards.
