New Isolation System
Ancon’s stainless steel tension system is now supplied with isolation materials as standard.
This new isolation system enables stainless steel tie bars to be fixed to a connecting plate of a dissimilar metal. By separating the two metals, bi-metallic corrosion is avoided.
The components of a tie bar in contact with the plate are the fork connector and the fixing pin.
Each Ancon stainless steel fork connector is now supplied with two clear, self-adhesive, PET (polyester) washers. These washers should be applied to either side of the plate, around the fixing hole, prior to the installation of the fork.
Stainless steel pins now feature a PTFE coating around the barrel.
Ancon will further expand its wide product range with new product launches at the UK’s largest event for specifiers in the built environment, Ecobuild 2017.
Ancon’s latest animated video evaluates the limitations of traditional re-bend continuity systems, including the dangers associated with them, and presents a safer, easier, quicker solution - the KSN Anchor System.
