Ancon AMR Masonry Reinforcement
Ancon AMR is a steel reinforcement system that locates in the bed joint to strengthen masonry panels without thickening the wall.
The longitudinal steel wires are flattened to less than 3mm to ensure good mortar cover is maintained, even when lapped or used with wall ties. Cross wires are welded in the same plane.
Available in various standard configurations, the Ancon AMR suits a wide range of structural load conditions and wall widths up to 215mm.
60, 100, 150, 175mm
3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0mm (equivalent diameter after flattening)
Stainless steel, Galvanised steel
Flattened to less than 3mm
AMR Masonry Reinforcement is featured in CADS Masonry Wall Panel Designer and Ancon provides a free masonry panel design service.
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.
