Glazed Entrance Hall - Nottingham Breast Institute

Glazed Entrance Hall

An Ancon Tension System has been installed in the glazed atrium entrance of the new Nottingham Breast Institute at the Nottingham City Hospital. 

Ancon Tension System fork and nut

Ancon Tension Systems provide a high load capacity and can meet the demanding aesthetic requirements of today’s architectural applications.

The system comprises a stylish range of fork connectors, locking nuts and bars. The slender profile of the system ensures the maximum transmission of light when used in conjunction with areas of glazing. In addition to providing the necessary restraint against wind loads, Ancon tie bars can enhance the overall appearance of a structure.

This stainless steel tension system was supplied to steelwork subcontractor Browne Structures. The project’s main contractor was Baggaley Construction.
