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 is leading the way in developing solutions to meet the Government’s tough new fire safety requirements for buildings, with the launch of an upgraded range of non-combustible insulated balcony connectors.
As a long standing sponsor of the Brick Awards, Ancon once again joins the celebrations to acknowledge excellence in the use of the UK’s favourite cladding material.
