Ancon Corner Guards offer protection to the exposed edges of columns and walls in areas of high traffic.
They are manufactured in either stainless steel, galvanised steel or untreated mild steel. Stainless steel provides the greatest corrosion resistance and, where aesthetics are important, can be supplied with a satin-polished surface finish.
Two standard angle sizes suit the majority of applications; both sizes can be manufactured for either casting-in or surface-fixing.
When a secure anchorage in concrete is required, wavy-tailed U-shaped lugs are welded to the reverse of the guard. The profile of these lugs has been designed to avoid clashes with reinforcing bars and to aid concrete flow.
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.
