Part E-Compliant Remedial Wall Ties
Ancon has launched two new remedial wall ties, the ‘HRT4/R’ and the ‘Type A R/R’.
These products provide a cost-effective repair solution where one or both leaves of a masonry cavity wall have been built with either incorrect or insufficient wall ties.
The benefit of these ties over other remedial ties is that they meet the performance requirements of ‘Type A’ ties to Approved Document E, and are therefore suitable for use in internal separating walls of new build attached dwellings.
The ‘HRT4/R’ has been developed for use where only one leaf has been built and the ‘Type A R/R’ for where both leaves are built. In each case the ties are resin-bonded in the wall in 10mm diameter holes.
Ancon’s range of wall ties is the most comprehensive available. The company continues to enhance its product offering to ensure it meets the changing requirements of the Industry.
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.
