Ancon TeploTie, a BBA-approved wall tie manufactured from basalt fibres, has been announced Winner of the Building Product category of the 2010 Self-Build Product Innovation awards.
In addition to a number of stainless steel wire wall ties, TeploTie forms part of Ancon’s low thermal conductivity range. These wall ties improve the energy efficiency of masonry cavity walls by minimising heat loss through thermal bridging.
With a thermal conductivity of just 0.7W/mK, TeploTie is excluded from U-value calculations. This means no additional insulation is required in a cavity wall to compensate for heat loss through these wall ties, minimising valuable wall footprint and providing savings on all associated construction materials.
