Roads & Bridges
Safety, strength and structural integrity
In road and bridge construction, the need for superior safety, strength and structural integrity means that Ancon steel fixings are routinely specified for large-scale infrastructure projects.
Concrete reinforcing bar couplers and starter bars play a key role in creating secure, high-strength bridges worldwide – from long-span crossings to footbridges.
Over 100,000 Ancon Rebar Couplers have been used in the concrete support towers, end piers and road deck of one of the longest cable-stayed bridges in the world.

Bartec Plus couplers offer a full strength connection together with enhanced fatigue resistance.
Bartec Plus Couplers
MBT couplers require neither bar end preparation to form threads nor bar rotation to effect installation. The bars are supported within the coupler by two serrated saddles.
The Starter Bar system is designed to increase the speed of construction at joints where continuity of reinforcement is required, or for fixing applications using standard metric bolts or studding.

Insufficient embedment of wall ties in the mortar joints of masonry cavity walls compromises wall tie performance and could lead to the collapse of walls.
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.
