Reinforcement Continuity Systems
Ancon manufactures three products which provide continuity of reinforcement across construction joints in concrete.
The KSN system comprises internally-threaded anchors which are cast into the wall and, during construction of the adjoining slab, accept continuation bars prepared with a Bartec parallel-thread. This is the fastest and safest system.
There is no on site bar straightening and virtually no restriction on bar length, so EC2 lap lengths are easily accommodated. A standard timber carrier allows multiple anchors to be installed simultaneously. Unlike re-bend systems where bar length, spacing and diameter are restricted by physical box dimensions, KSN Anchors provide total design flexibility.

Ancon Eazistrip consists of pre-bent bars housed within a galvanised steel casing. Once installed, the protective cover is removed and the bars are straightened.
Ancon Starter Bars are supplied fixed to an Ancon coupler. Once cast in concrete, the coupler’s end cap is removed and a threaded continuation bar is installed with a calibrated torque wrench to complete the connection.
Installation Procedure for Ancon Eazistrip
Teplo-BFR is an innovative basalt-fibre wall tie that features a plain end for resin anchoring into an existing structure and a moulded safety end for building into a new bed joint.
Nexus, the next generation of brick-faced support systems developed through a collaboration between Ibstock Kevington and Ancon, is the first of its kind to achieve British Board of Agrément (BBA) certification for both soffits and lintels.
