The innovative KSN range of threaded anchors has been extended with the addition of the KSN Anchor Box.
Where slab-to-wall connections are subjected to a combination of shear and tensile loads, Ancon now recommends its KSN Anchor Box; a single row of internally-threaded anchors cast into the wall along the slab section centreline, ready to accept Ancon threaded reinforcing bars to complete the connection.
The KSN Anchor Box provides a cost-effective design solution that minimises rebar congestion in both the slab and wall, simplifies bar scheduling and is quick and easy to install. As with all KSN products, the KSN Anchor Box also eliminates the need for manual bar straightening on site.
To complement the new product, Ancon has developed a four-step EC2-compliant design method which has been independently verified by the Department of Civil and Structural Engineering at the University of Sheffield.
The Ancon KSN Anchor is approved by UK CARES (Technical Approval TA1-B 5061)
