Compression Systems

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.

CE Marking

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.
