To complement the Tension System range, Ancon designs and manufactures Compression Systems.
These systems use the same fork connectors and locking nuts as the Tension System but use high strength tubes instead of bars. They are available in both carbon and stainless steels in a variety of sizes and finishes. To enable Ancon to design a compression system the following information is required:
- Pin to pin dimension
- Applied system load
- Material and surface finish required
For more information please contact Ancon.
Ancon Compression 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.
Ancon Apprentice Niamh Farrell has made the shortlist for the competitive ‘Apprentice of the Year’ category, at the 2020 Made in Sheffield manufacturing awards; a biennial ceremony celebrating excellence in manufacturing in the Sheffield city region.
