Welcome to the latest Ancon newsletter. In this issue read about our new KSN Anchor and cavity wall tie App gaining industry recognition in recent awards.

KSN Anchor wins praise in 2013 CONSTRUCT Innovation Award

KSN Anchors represent a completely new approach to reinforcement continuity at slab-to-wall construction joints. They have been ‘Highly Commended’ in the CONSTRUCT Innovation Award, which recognises excellence and innovation in the concrete industry.

Unlike traditional re-bend continuity boxes, where bar length, spacing and diameter are restricted by physical box dimensions, the KSN Anchor system offers greater design flexibility and is faster and safer to install. The internally threaded anchors are simply cast into the wall and, during construction of the adjoining slab, accept standard Bartec threaded continuation bars.

The KSN Anchor system removes the need for on-site bar straightening and eliminates the associated safety concerns. It also easily accommodates the longer rebar lap lengths now required by Eurocode 2 and allows multiple anchors to be installed simultaneously saving time.

2,500 linear metres of KSN anchors have been used to connect pre-fabricated panels to in-situ cast slabs across four floors on Liverpool’s showpiece £167 million ‘Alder Hey in the Park’ hospital project.

Cavity wall tie app shortlisted in industry awards

Our new App that makes choosing the right cavity wall tie for any application quick and easy has been shortlisted for the prestigious 2013 Build It industry awards.

The new App provides solutions for all standard masonry and thin-joint blockwork, steel frame and timber frame constructions, and cuts out much of the complicated calculation work normally required around product-specific issues, such as tie length, embedment depth and tie type to PD 6697.

The Ancon App is one of three products to be shortlisted for the Best App/Online Tool Award in the 2013 Build It Awards, and follows our success in the 2012 Awards, where the ground-breaking low thermal conductivity TeploTie wall tie was voted Best Innovation in Insulation.

Download the App from the App Store for all iPhone and iPad users, or from the Google Play Store for Android handsets and tablets.
