Windposts

Windposts

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 Standard now carry UKCA and 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. Leviat complies with all UKCA and 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.

We are 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.

CE, UKCA and CE UKNI marking from Leviat

From January 1st 2021, the UK will recognise both the EU CE marking approvals, for a time limited period, and the new UK based approval system, which will be known as the UKCA mark. The EU will only recognise CE marking by EU notified bodies as proof of efficacy moving forwards. Leviat has been working closely with both EU notified and UK approved bodies to ensure compliance is achieved at the earliest possible opportunity and we can confirm that we have obtained all relevant certification.
