Ancon Eazistrip: Awarded UK CARES Technical Approval
Ancon Eazistrip reinforcement continuity system can now be specified and installed with even greater confidence; Ancon Building Products is pleased to announce this product has been awarded UK CARES Technical Approval, TA2-5017.
Eazistrip is a quick and easy means of providing continuity of reinforcement at construction joints in concrete. Its use can help improve site safety and working access by minimising exposure to projecting starter bars. The system consists of pre-bent rebars, housed within a galvanised steel casing. After striking of formwork, the cover is removed and the bars straightened, ready for joining the continuation bars.
This UK CARES Technical Approval confirms Eazistrip, and its manufacturing and quality control processes have undergone extensive independent assessment and confirm Ancon’s compliance with all relevant standards; in particular it confirms Eazistrip’s suitability for use in reinforced concrete structures designed to BS8110.
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.
