Dear Subscriber,
Welcome to the latest Ancon newsletter. In this issue we look at the award-winning basalt-fibre TeploTie and the first robust detail to qualify for maximum points under the Code for Sustainable Homes.

Ancon TeploTie Wins Product Innovation Award

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.

First Robust Detail to Qualify for Maximum Credits

An Ancon Wall Tie has been named as an integral component in the first Robust Detail to qualify for the maximum sound insulation credits, under the Code for Sustainable Homes.

Robust Details Ltd has published E-WM-19; based around Icopal Monarfloor’s Bridgestop acoustic isolation system for masonry separating cavity walls. The assessed structures incorporated Staifix HRT4 wall ties.

The HRT4 is manufactured by Ancon from high tensile stainless steel wire. The thin bridge across the cavity formed by the slender profile of this wall tie has a negligible effect on the acoustic (and the thermal) performance of a masonry wall, making it the ideal solution for this application. No wall tie other than the Staifix HRT4 is currently able to be used in all masonry cavity separating wall details published by Robust Details Ltd.
