Ancon brings low energy fixing innovation to Ecobuild 2013

2012 Queen’s Award Winner, Ancon, chose Ecobuild to showcase the latest innovative structural fixing solutions that are helping to change the way that sustainable low energy buildings are designed and constructed.

Solutions on show included low thermal conductivity cavity wall ties, such as the Ancon TeploTie, an innovative basalt-fibre tie used in many groundbreaking low-energy developments; and new Staifix RT2 275mm, the first high thermal performance Type 2 stainless steel wall tie to enable the use of 150mm wide insulated cavities in multi-storey low energy construction.

Also featured was a range of Ancon Thermal Breaks, designed to reduce thermal bridging at balcony connections, brickwork support brackets and other areas where thermal continuity of the building envelope is typically compromised.

Completing the displays were Ancon’s more established solutions, including support angles, windposts and masonry reinforcement, which benefit from the same low thermal conductivity, 100% recyclability and long, maintenance-free life associated with all of the company’s market-leading stainless steel products.
