Wall Ties & Restraint Fixings
Wall ties and restraint fixings are an essential element in the stability of masonry panels.
Ancon manufactures fixings in a variety of lengths and types for restraining brickwork, blockwork and stonework. The Staifix range of wall ties includes solutions for all types of masonry construction including traditional brick-to-block, thin-joint blockwork and timber frames.
Construction products which fall within the scope of a harmonised European Standard must carry CE marking before they can legally be sold in the European Economic Area. For wall ties, the harmonised standard is BS EN 845-1. Ancon complies with all requirements of this legislation and our website/literature identifies the
products affected with a CE logo.
