Shear Load Connectors

Ancon Solutions to Joints

In most cases traditional construction details can be replaced by joints incorporating Ancon shear load connectors. They can be used for joints in floor slabs, suspended slabs, and for replacing double columns and beams at structural movement joints. Applications in civil engineering include joints in bridge parapets, bridge abutments and diaphragm wall construction. The Lockable Dowel is suitable for use at temporary movement joints in post-tensioned concrete.
