Welcome to the latest Ancon newsletter. In this issue read how we are now CE marking our fabricated structural steelwork and offering CPD approved technical seminars.
We're leading the way with CE marking of brick support & windposts
Ancon has achieved all the necessary welding and factory production control certification to CE-mark its structural steel components, including masonry support systems and windposts, under the EU Construction Products Regulation.
The certification, gained in May 2013, followed a thorough audit of the company’s design and fabricating operations in accordance with EN 1090. Expert external auditors verified Ancon’s design methods to Eurocode 3, Welding Quality Management System to ISO 3834 and that all welding personnel held EN 287 qualifications. The third-party certification means that Ancon can legally supply its fabricated structural steel components with the globally recognised CE-mark. Fabrications include brick support systems, windposts, compression systems and balcony connectors. These, combined with CE-Marked cavity wall ties, masonry reinforcement and lintels to BS EN 845, form Ancon’s full range of CPR-compliant products. Continue reading...
Technical seminars now CPD approved
Our latest CPD technical seminars have been independently assessed and approved by the Construction CPD Certification Service, confirming their educational value to architects and engineers as part of a structured Continuing Professional Development training programme.
The seminars, ‘Support and Restraint of Masonry Cladding on Framed Buildings’ and ‘Designing for Joints in Structural Concrete’, cover two technically challenging areas that are critical to efficient, cost-effective building design.
Confirmed by the assessors to be of value to all technical staff in a practice, from junior technicians to experienced professionals, the seminars highlight the latest design codes, materials and construction techniques.
