Ancon Windposts are designed to span vertically between floors to provide lateral support for panels of brickwork. Windposts can be installed into either the inner leaf of blockwork or into the cavity leaving the blockwork undisturbed. They are designed to suit specific applications and are supplied complete with end connections and ties.
They are suitable for use where standard AMR ladder type masonry reinforcement is inadequate or when there is a requirement to split a large masonry panel.
Construction products which fall within the scope of a harmonised European Standard should now carry CE marking under the Construction Products Regulation. For windposts and parapet posts, the harmonised standard is BS EN 1090-1 Execution of steel structures and aluminium structures: Requirements for conformity assessment of structural components. Ancon complies with all CE marking requirements of this Standard, including designs to EN 1993 (Eurocode 3) and external certification of our factory production controls by an approved body.
Ancon is certified to undertake welded fabrication work to Execution Class 2 which covers most building applications and is the default class when unspecified. For more information on Execution Class click here or download a Declaration of Performance here.
