Fixing and support systems for industrial buildings on any scale
Concrete and masonry construction in the industrial sector can take many forms. Many large warehouses and other steel-framed structures require heavily loaded concrete floor slabs.
Products such as Ancon reinforcing bar couplers help to reduce rebar congestion at slab joints, facilitating faster, more efficient concrete pouring. Ancon masonry supports, wall ties, windposts and restraint systems are integral to any areas of brick or blockwork.
The use of Ancon Reinforcing Bar Couplers can simplify the design and construction of reinforced concrete and reduce the amount of reinforcement required.
Reinforcing Bar Couplers
Concrete structures are designed with expansion and contraction joints to allow movement to take place.
Shear Load Connectors
Used within a slab to provide additional reinforcement around columns, Ancon Shearfix is the ideal solution to the design and construction problems associated with punching shear.
Punching Shear Reinforcement
Tie bars are increasingly being used in structures and buildings as an architectural as well as a structural element.
Tension & Compression Systems
Brick, block or stone cladding on steel or concrete framed structures is normally supported by stainless steel masonry support systems.
Wall ties and restraint fixings are an essential element in the stability of masonry panels.
Wall Ties & Restraint Fixings
Ancon Windposts are designed to span vertically between floors to provide lateral support for panels of brickwork.
Catch up on the latest developments from Ancon
Use of offsite manufacturing for multi-storey concrete frames is increasing in the UK. This trend has necessitated the development of new construction methodologies, particularly in the field of primary structural connections between precast concrete elements.
Ancon is a proud sponsor of the 6th UK DISC (Developments in Structural Concrete) Conference, taking place at the Institution of Structural Engineers in London, on 29 November 2018.
Ancon’s recently-extended head office in Sheffield is now home to a unique piece of wall art, thanks to the artistic talents of one of its employees.
