Industry Experts Admire Ancon’s Innovation
Two new products from Ancon are among a select group of innovations being showcased by the Construction Products Association.
Each year the CPA’s ‘Modern Materials and Components’ publication features products that demonstrate how manufacturers are helping to achieve the Egan objectives. The 2003 edition showcases twenty-two new products that have been judged by a panel of experts to improve safety on site, speed construction times and reduce maintenance costs.
The two Ancon products receiving recognition are the Ancon 25/14 Channel System, that ties brickwork to steel columns, and the Ancon Steelgrip, that blind fixes masonry support systems to hollow steel sections. The latter was Highly Commended by the judges.
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.
