25/14 Restraint System

The Ancon 25/14 restraint system is designed to tie masonry to steel, timber or concrete frames through a layer of insulation.

25/14 Channel is supplied in lengths of 2700 and 3000mm, and features pre-punched holes at close centres to ensure a fixing position is always located near the end even when it is cut on site.

Once the channel is installed, Ancon _ _25 wall ties, typically SD25, can be positioned at any point along its length and are built into the bed joints of the outer leaf of brickwork.

See technical literature for product references and fixing centres for both ties and screws. Contact Ancon for information when fixing to timber.
