Ancon 500 Tension Systems
The Ancon 500 is a high performance tension system. It is available in various diameters from 8mm to 42mm in both carbon steel and stainless steel.
All components of the system can be supplied in a variety of finishes to provide corrosion resistance and to meet the demanding aesthetic requirements of many architectural applications. The bar used in this system has a minimum yield of 500N/mm².
Ancon Tension Systems are CE marked to the harmonised European Standard EN 1090-1, Execution of Steel Structures and Aluminium Structures: Requirements for Conformity Assessment of Structural Components.

Surface finish is usually an important factor in applications using stainless steel. Ancon bars are bright drawn as standard but can be hand polished if required. The stainless steel forks and locking nuts can be supplied electro-polished, satin-polished or hand polished.
Isolation material is supplied as standard with the stainless steel system to enable its fixing to a connecting plate of a dissimilar metal. Each stainless steel fork connector is supplied with two clear, self-adhesive, PET (polyester) washers to be applied around the fixing hole either side of the structure. Stainless steel pins feature a PTFE coating around the barrel.
Building Information Modelling
As we all change the way we are working, Ancon has extended its technical services offering to include ‘on demand’ webinars enabling those of you practicing social distancing, while working at home or back in the office, to keep on top of your professional development.
Tuesday 23rd June 2020 is the globally celebrated International Women in Engineering Day (INWED). Ancon will be honouring its female engineers by getting to know some of them a little better and sharing their experiences with you.
